    I’ve been using, and loving my NEC PA271W for many years. I calibrate it regularly with Spectraview and the proprietary puck.

    It is currently ten years old. I do not know how long it will survive so am beginning to look at potential replacements. None of the current NEC ‘s at B&H look like they are comparable; Eizo’s look nice but are expensive as well. I know nothing about BenQ.

    Does anyone here have experience with the relatively new Mac Studio Display, not the $5k one, the $1,600 one?

    Can it be accurately calibrated and with what device?

    Thanks for any responses.

    Eric

    Accurate is a buzzword.

    Can you calibrate it to match a print via a soft proof? With the right software and the options needed, sure.

    Can it do everything the SpectraView (or Eizo) can do? No.

    Thanks for your response, Andrew. I appreciate your expertise.

    Were my beloved PA271W to “die” tomorrow, what currently available 27″ monitor might you recommend?

    Thanks.

    No recommendations at this time as I haven’t crossed that bridge yet. My PA271Q is running just fine.
