ViewSonic VP2468 Full HD model for colour-critical work

IPS (In Plane Switching) and IPS-type (PLS, AHVA etc.) panels are the preferred choice for colour-critical work due to their relatively strong colour consistency and viewing angle performance. The ViewSonic VP2468 uses the popular 23.8” IPS-type panel size and places it in very sleek-looking housing. The bezels feature a dual-stage design, with extremely thin hard outer plastic component and a very slim panel border.

Dell P4317Q Multi-Client ‘4K’ UHD monitor

The Dell ‘P’ (Professional) series has included some models with impressive all-round performance, such as the P2414H and newer P2415Q.

Nvidia G-SYNC – variable refresh rate technology

Traditionally monitors operate at a fixed refresh rate – commonly 60Hz, 120Hz or 144Hz.

BenQ XL2735 144Hz 2560 x 1440 gaming monitor

As far as gaming monitors go, the BenQ XL2730Z has proven to be quite a capable beast. The BenQ XL2735 is a tweaked version of this, now coming under the company’s ZOWIE gaming brand. Aesthetically there are a few minor changes – from the front, you will notice the addition of a ‘shield’. This is essentially very similar to the calibration hood that some monitors designed for colour-critical work may come with.
