2nd monitor for video editing

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi I currently have a Samsung 2333T and would like to add 2nd monitor that is better than my Samsung for video editing. I was looking into the old 23" Apple displays or the Dell Ultrasharp 23" or 24". Which do you guys think is better? Or have any other suggestions? My price range is around 300-500. Thanks!

The Ultrasharp U2410($499) is the best monitor you can get in that price range. The U2312HM($269.99) is a very good value IPS monitor which after calibration comes close to the 2410's color reproduction, which is great.

For sRGB color reproduction the U2311h and U2312HM are actually better than the U2410, as is the U2412M if you want to go 24".

sRGB has the same primary chromatcitiy/gamut values (red/green/blue) as Rec.709/BT.709.

The U2410 uses a wide gamut panel that is artificially reduced to sRGB primaries, but not perfectly, I might add. The U2312HM and U2412M both cover sRGB very well in the range of 93 - 94%. The U2410 is listed as covering sRGB at 100% but it actually does not in sRGB mode.

Go for the U2312HM or U2412M for this specific purpose and save the extra money. I'm assuming you are doing this on a PC?

Thanks for the help you 2! I'll go with the U2412M just for the slightly bigger size. And yes I'm doing it on a PC.
