Hi All,

Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced 27' monitor for working in Lightwave and Photoshop?

Cheers, Bob

tricky question, what features would you want?

3D
4K
HDR

personally would like a 2560 x 1440
  more LW "friendly" compared to 4K, in my >personal opinion
and 3D support
  i'd like to make some 3D movie tests with LW

Thanks for the replies. Erikals, yes, basically a good quality reasonably priced LW and Photoshop-friendly monitor. 4K may be too excessive by the sound of it. I just wondered what other folks out there were using.

this said, the monitor is one of the last things down my list to replace, unless i want to do some 3D movie tests in the near future.

right now the 21.5 inch monitor with 1600x1200px does a great job, even if being around 15 years old   :)

My advice is EIZO Monitors as LW and Photoshop-friendly. The new Eizo CS2730 ColorEdge with IPS Pannel (Wide Gamut) and 2.560 x 1.440 WQHD is best Pixelratio for 27''.

Those display are in the higher price range as I heard. Maybe not all models.

I think about buying 40-43 inch 4K tv to replace my two monitors... ;]

I don't think this is ergonomic because you have to move your head alot and the mouse movements could be problematic as well. Just my thoughts but I might be wrong. I think best is 2x 27" FullHD for LW because it is not usable on 4k anyway. For other applications maybe 2x 27-30" 4k.

On ultra-wide versus dual my personal response was "both." I have a Dell 34" as my main and an older Apple 27" as backup. I've become spoiled by having more than enough screen real estate to have as many windows going as I please and having them in a standing desk configuration I find the ergonomics are great.

I found the Dell as an older-model closeout for less than 50% of list, which is how I'd personally recommend anyone on a budget shop for such items.

I use a dual set up, an Asus PB278Q 27" 2560x1440 and a Dell P2417H 24" 1920x1080. I looked at 27" 1080p monitors for the second, but the pixel size was noticeable, 24" seems about right. My eyes couldn't take LW on a 4k, getting old I guess.

I have dual 27"Asus 3D monitors. They are a few years old now. In fact, I have a pair on both of my PC systems. Being identical, I can keep color fidelity between them the same.

Belated thanks for recommendations. In the end I went for the Dell 27 Bazsa mentioned. Colours are accurate which is the main thing. What I really like about today's monitors is reduced parallax, the pixels don't appear to be hiding behind glass.
