the program: new sensor significantly more precise and a priori no longer sensitive to the ravages of time, calibration time very clearly reduced (less than one minute to read color patches!), and taking into account the latest screen technologies to always and again improve the quality of screen calibration, regardless of their quality, age, etc.... And it's a real favorite!

Macbook Pro 13'' and 15''. We were at the level of a good photo editing screen, the reflections in addition! But since Aplle introduced its new slabs displaying the DCI-P3 gamut; the display quality is at the level of an Eizo CG series screen. Ah, if only there weren't those damn reflections......

And the most surprising thing is that its slab displays a very nice homogeneity and colors rather precisely. It's not an Eizo screen, of course, but it doesn't have the claims either.

And a nice surprise and a feat achieved by Dell even if it is not for everyone.

While we obviously don't have to deal with Eizo panels, their price/quality ratio has become really good and this Dell P2419H is no exception. I also make it my new favorite under the symbolic bar of $200 to replace the Asus VC239H.

unworthy of a monitor just under $1,000. If you really want a cheap 27 inch 4K screen then you'll have to deal with it but it's true that then the precision of its colors and its ergonomics or its top connectivity will perhaps make you forget or relativize this big defect. Frankly, it also defends itself...

The technical features are really attractive: 4K, Adobe RGB, hardware calibration, top connectivity (USB-C) and flawless ergonomics! Yes, but there is one but: uniformity of its panel

Where do the tested products come from ? Is my opinion completely independent ?

All the products I talk about on this site have been tested by me either following a personal purchase, a friendly loan, during a training session at a customer's site or after a manufacturer's loan.
They thank me for the precision of my remarks which will help their future products to progress. So things are moving and my

impartial opinion is more and more appreciated.... If I believe your emails, your trust marks and even some brands.

 

... And how to participate!

So my proposal when you don't know how to thank me for the free content: think about using my links to buy in these different partner shops because they play the game!
