Re: best well-designed monitor for photo editing?


I have the exact same monitor as rico's (shown above), and a stylish room to put it in. The decor is a fashionable grey and beige, with art nouveau light fittings, and wooden furniture like recycled baltic pine and a mid-century desk, and the grey/charcoal monitor blends in unobtrusively. You have to remember these are low-volume, quality monitors that are expected to last a long time and be used in many different environments in different countries. They are not going to follow short-lived US fashion or be too out there.

There's also electronics in there to ensure colour stability as the monitor heats up, and a LUT, and a KVM switch. That takes space.

Perhaps "garish" is not what you really meant. Everything is black or grey except for a small badge. But it could be regarded as dated styling.

If style is your main concern, Apple is the obvious choice. The better (all now?) iMacs have a P3 gamut (different from Adobe RGB, but still wide) but you have to use the computer they come with. They are cheaper than the EIZO CX270 alone.
