Good monitor for amateur photo editing

_Omega_
 Share

I am looking for a good monitor for amateur photo editing... I was looking at the VP2458 from viewsonic with which they claim a dE of <2 should I go for that or should I go for a cheaper monitor like that MSI MD271PDE which has a good coverage of the color spaces as well but they claim no specific calibration. With the cheaper monitor I would save some money which could go to a calibration tool in the future...

Thanks for the Help!

the MD271PDE doesnt even cover srgb, and the vp2458 is just a srgb monitor with marketing labels, 

 

get a aoc 24g2 for 170usd to cover all the color spaces.

Depends on your definition of 'amanteur'. Nearly any monitor is good enough for SRGB photo editing, nearly every monitor needs a calibration for anything remotely serious. If it's an option between cheaper monitor + calibration and a more expensive model without calibration, I would always go to the former. Not only factory calibration is never as good as manual, you also need to calibrate your monitor regularly if you want the colours to remain accurate.

I own VP2468 before which slightly better than VP2458. To me it look very normal and the IPS is not very good also.

 

I don't feel it got Pro level.

I see were you coming from, so i should rather go with something like the aoc 24g2 which @xg32 suggested and use the spare money to get a calibration tool... Can you recommend one?

Probably a good idea if you're serious about colours. You will just have to be aware of the limitation of some very low end monitor. The AOC 24G2 has a rather poor viewing angle for IPS, and it means you will have to make sure that you're not watching the image off angle to be sure of its colour. Other cheaper panel that use TN or VA would suffer a similar problem, some very cheap one that was cheap because they are old also might not have a perfect SRGB coverage etc. 

 

*typed probabny not a good idea instead of probably a good idea for some reason

if you don't do any high refresh gaming and only care about color coverage and accuracy, then look at the sw240, these panels used to go for 1k a few years back, benq somehow does it with slightly worse qc

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1397520-REG/benq_sw240_24_ips_wuxga.html

 

you'll end up with a better monitor overall for the money vs buying a cheaper monitor + a colorimeter, this one's really a personal perference.

 

The cheapest route would be to just get the cheaper monitor first then get a colorimeter when u need it
