I did look through BenQ's website and I liked the BenQ PD2700U. It claims 96% DCI-P3, sRGB, Rec707, 10-bit and HDR10 support. It's also just over $500, which is within budget. Any other good options? Something similar but glossy?
How about this:
I'd still like to see at minimum 8-bit +dithering
Good DCI-P3 coverage, somewhere at least 90%
Basic HDR10 content support
4k 27" range
Still highly prefer glossy. I have a Dell P2715Q and it's great, but I like my glossy monitor more much.
The banding difference probably has to do with gamma tracking.
I don't really see a difference at least not easily without taking comparison photos between 8bit and 10bit MadVR output of a 10bit movie with monitor set to 10bit.
GPUs are fine, it's the drivers that don't offer OGL 10bit. There is no difference between GeForce and Quadro and their AMD counterparts, the difference is in driver.
The only glossy I remember is Q3279VWF, the first VA variant, and it's something close to glossy, not pure gloss.
The 5k used in some Apple monitors is glossy, not sure about LG and other with this panel.
Glossy is very hard to find these days. Let alone if you want a usable glossy = one with very good AR coating as you can find on some modern TVs but not all.
PD2700U is sRGB.
PD2720U is DCI-P3.
Plus the same in 32".
Actually I thought you may find the SW271.
Many modern panels come with electronics that offer 10bit input but if it's 8bit+FRC or native 10bit is always near impossible to find and even test.
Glossy profi monitors... never heard of any.
