    It’s time for me to get myself a hires monitor. Min. 4K and RGB capable.

    I already have an Eizo 27″ Color Edge and a BenQ 27″, but in normal HD versions.

    I woold like to stay at the two suppliers and keep the 27″ size, just upgrade to 4 K or above.

    Do any of you see any qualified competitors to the two brands?

    I would like to hear more about this as I will have to replace my old Apple Cinema Display soon.

    does anyone have some real world experience with either of these monitors?

    Man … how I am eager to know what monitor reproduces the most right colors re. gamut and evalated on the HD monitors I have they are close th two.

    Seems to me the BenQ has a bit of color noise going on, which the Eizo doesn’t. But from all those more or less commercial videos I chewed through, they are first and formost done on 32″ 4K monitors of, well any brand.
    It is of course not a problem for me to calibrate my monitors, so the doubt doesn’t rest in that department 🙂

    Seems the site need a typo correction function, normally called ‘edit’…?

    I could also add to my question if any of you feels there’s a differing difference whether you edit in 4K on a 27″ rather than a 32″?

    FYI…. You can always edit a post.  I use Grammarly and it works great with this site at least in Safari.  Shows your words that are misspelled and grammar and allows thwem to be fixed.

    My photo monitors history is:

    • Apple Cinema Display 23″ (the first one)
    • iMac 21″
    • HP LP2475w
    • Dell U2413
    • LG 32UD99-W

    The best one of all by far is the LG. Its hardware calibration works very well. I can see nuances in deep shadows. I cannot see brightness inconsistencies, although I know the left border is a bit darker than the rest.

    You asked about Eizo or BenQ, but I can tell you for having seen both that the LG is better than the BenQ. I had no opportunity to see an Eizo side-by-side with anything, I suppose they are much better yet, but than there is the money thing 🙂

    The other day I just installed the BenQ SW271nreplacing my Color Edge EIZO SHD monitor.

    How I love the higher resolution, but subjectively maybe not that big of a difference in tonal gradtion smoorthness as I would have thought. Anyhow, I do not regret. It is af the BenQ shows just a tiny,tiny bit more color bleed or is it glare?… than the Eizo. I have to a/B compare the to to conclude which didn’t yet.
    But you will be happy with the BenQ 4K, I feel sure.

    Just a final reply to my input here 🙂

    This needs to be updated. The LG is now 2 and a half years old and has white borders. I cannot recommend that monitor.

    Next one will be Eizo. I find the CS2731 very keenly priced.
