    Hey team!

    I'm on the hunt for a new monitor. Looking at 32 inch and good colour fidelity.

    Have been considering the BenQ sw321 and the ASUS ProArt PA32UC-K. But, I'm not stuck on either of those.


    Any thoughts, tips, etc from the the knowledgeable Reduser community?

    Are you set only on 32” monitor? Eizo makes great 27” monitors, that are cheaper and are used by many post houses for color grading and VFX work.

    Haven't seen it myself, but the proart looks to be pretty good https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews...proart-pa32ucx

    We just use good old LG-OLED TV's and Samsung QLED's (because many of our customers use these, to display the content for their: prospects, customers, etc..)

    How many times have you gotten to a point--at the beginning, middle, or end of a project--where just just have to ask yourself: where the heck are we, and how did we get here?

    If the answer is more than once, let me put in a good word for an FSI DM240 reference monitor. There is nothing like being able to get to a known good state, even if you claim you never touch stuff once it's "working".

    Personally I prefer single ultrawide for UI + a proper reference display. Using the Dell U3818DW.

    For Gui / vfx and editing screen we use these. When you get used to it there is no way to go back to something else. Does not cost much, super nice for 4k work and having lots if bins, big timlines etc. Everyone loves em, we got them on all worksrations and several clients started to by em as well. Not a grading screen but for editing and gui its amazing. And so is the price.

    This is the next gen slightly more costly but should be even better.
