What are you looking for in a monitor as a 3D artist?
show user profile  Nanne
Hello mates, I've recently bought a new computer so I thought it was time to update my monitors as well. I currently have two different monitors of different age so they do look a little bit different, the older one is much more yellowish and darker, or rather dimmer. I think the old one is 300 cd/m2 and the new one is 400 cd/m2.

Do any one of you have any experience of working with very high end monitors? Or do you prefer to just buy cheap ones instead?

I'm a 3D generalist and I don't do much work for print, I suppose that a expensive high end monitor is better for color calibration with printers and stuff like that. But I'm not sure it's worth the extra money from my point of view.

At the office I have a Dell 24 UltraSharp U2415

I like it, and it is very cheap, but perhaps it's worth going a bit higher? I would like to have a larger screen, 27". Here's one I'm looking into.
Dell Ultrasharp Up2716d (27" 16:9 2560 x 1440 IPS,

But that one is quite expensive, here is one with a price in between the two mentioned before.
Dell Ultrasharp U2715h (27" 16:9 2560 x 1440 IPS)

Can you tell the difference, which one would you go for? Do you prefer 300 or 400 cd/m2 for brightness?

Are there any pitfalls to look out for when choosing a monitor, any specific technical value that is important to not overlook? For instance, I was looking at a TV recently that looked brilliant and with an excellent price. But when I came to the store the personell told me that it was only 50Hz (MHz?) update rate on it, and then he showed me on their wall two TV-sets with 50 and 100 Hz respectively and you could REALLY tell the difference! When the camera was panning the image was really lagging behind on the 50Hz TV, it was a really choppy experience where as the 100Hz TV gave a really smooth pan. So remember that!

Does anyone have any experience with these special "gameing monitors" from Asus ROG for instance? This one has 165Hz, is it worth it for an 3D artist?
ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q Gaming Monitor - 27" 2K WQHD (2560 x 1440) IPS, overclockable 165Hz, G-SYNC™

All input and shared experiences are welcomed, thanks! :)

I'm just glad Herfst decided to go audio instead of visual with his tuba...
