    Anyone have an opinion on BenQ SW320 vs Dell UP3216Q? Is there anything else I should consider. I dont want to spend anymore then what these are worth (the dell is about $200 more but there is currently 10% off)

    I would really like something larger then 27" and 1440p (which is what I currently have).

    I think you may have the wrong section?

    If for photography than Dell premier colour monitor.

    I have UP3214 and it’s great with calibrator.

    If you're using a monitor for photography, make sure your budget includes a calibrator.

    What does that matter for photography?

    Do you use miss 144hz for still screenshots too?

    Sigh, it's more natural and comfortable to look at a 16:10 screen, but they fucked up making quality products for the sake of saving money/higher profits.


    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/16:10_aspect_ratio

    16:10 (8:5) is an aspect ratio mostly used for computer displays and tablet computers. The width of the display is 1.6 times its height. This ratio is close to the golden ratio φ which is approximately 1.618.

    The shift from 16:10 to 16:9 was met with a mixed response. The lower cost of 16:9 computer displays, along with their suitability for gaming and movies and the convenience of having the same aspect ratio in different devices, was seen as a positive.[3][9] On the other hand, there was criticism towards the lack of vertical screen real estate when compared to 16:10 displays of the same screen diagonal.[9][10] For this reason, some considered 16:9 displays less suitable for productivity-oriented tasks, such as editing documents or spreadsheets and using design or engineering applications, which are mostly designed for taller, rather than wider screens.[9][11][12]

    I have the dell UP3214Q side screen with IGZO back panel and UP2414Q as my main screen with irite studio calibrator both are great with premier colour.

    I don’t have a powerful machine but I only work on ten photos usually from 500 shots I take, but spends many hours each per photo.

    So your workflow would matter too, but if you ddon’t not get paid why not just get a benq etc and calibrator.

    LG also have a few good options that you may wish to consider.
