| p.2 #7 · Is a IPS/Pro monitor is necessary if one doesn't print much. |
Late to the party ... but as a litmus test question, if you had to choose between color gamut and ips ... I'd choose color gamut. To my way of thinking about it, Color Gamut is about how much of what you are able to see. IPS is about where you can be and still see what the monitor is showing.
I'd rather have a 95% Gamut without IPS, than a 72% Gamut with IPS ... IF I were concerned about color. IF I'm worried about viewing angle, then the IPS comes into play more. Of course, both are good to have, IPS isn't the tell all do all. Fortunately, it is possible to have both, and once I've got my workstation positioned ... viewing angle doesn't change much. Although in my laptop, the IPS is nice ... just wish I had more gamut to go with it ... someday.
Depending on what the specific ranges are, I'd rather have more consistency over viewing angle than a wider gamut. That's because i shoot for print and printers have a smaller gamut than darned near any respectable monitor. So the greater opportunity for error will be with inconsistent viewing angle.
