Best Monitor for Photo Editing and Video Editing 2017

The monitor is the element which should be most heavily researched when buying computer equipment for the purposes of photo editing. And without some previous knowledge, it is easy to become lost once you start to investigate all of the technical specifications you may encounter in the course of your research. That is why we will be looking at all of the parameters you should be taking into account when selecting your future monitor for photo editing.

The quality of the monitor is fundamental since it is the element which will allow you to visualize your photos:

  • If the monitor is of poor quality, the fidelity of the displayed colors will diminish over time and as a result, the quality of your editing work will become random.
  • You will require a monitor which is capable of handling all of the possible colors contained in the images you will be editing.

The choice of monitor should therefore not be taken lightly. Consequently, it is only appropriate that you should study and precisely establish all of a monitor’s technical characteristics. This reasoning is all the more valid since in general the purchase of a monitor is done without being able to observe it in reality (contrary to televisions which can be seen on display in stores).

The Philips 276E8FJAB monitor has a better color gamut than the competition

Philips has announced its new Philips 276E8FJAB monitor. The new model in its catalog has a 27-inch display size and a 2K resolution. However, its main appeal is probably using the Ultra-Wide Color technology, which allows the monitor to reproduce a color palette larger than that of the competitive monitors currently on the market.

A good monitor should always go together with a good panel with good viewing angles. I suppose that this leaves TN panels completely out of the picture since, no matter how fast they are and how much their vertical refresh rate is, they still are panels that lag behind in terms of color reproduction.

Using your TV as a monitor: how to do it effectively

Pros

The main advantage is evident: a 43 or a 49-inch TV display is a lot less expensive than a monitor of the same size. In fact, few monitors can compare in size to a mid-end TV.

TVs give us more visual space and the same resolution of a high-end monitor, and having 4K on LCD TVs is now mainstream.

They also feature more multimedia options as every, or almost every, one of them is a smart TV nowadays, meaning that they offer an endless amount of different apps that enable us to use it separately from the PC. They usually have a lot of inputs, digital audio output and a speakers system that is usually far ahead of the one offered by typical monitors.

How to choose a gaming monitor?

Size and Resolution

You may already have a monitor size in mind. Perhaps you want a large 27 inch monitor for your desk, or maybe even two of them! Perhaps a smaller one would suit your needs and situation more? Whatever size you decide on, the most important thing, is what resolution the monitor is. The resolution of a monitor indicates how many pixels it displays, and this in turn reflects how sharp the image is. 1080P monitors are very common, and at screen sizes up to 23″ produce nice, sharp images. On biggers screens, such as 27” though, the image quality is not so great. A higher resolution is needed such as 2560×1440 in order to get that ‘sharp’ screen. This resolution also provides more screen space for your icons, browsers, and other things. Resolution
