    Nice screen. Shame it isnt a little further away from the $1000 standard.

    SAY Yes to high quality screens.

    SAY Yes to lower prices.

    Equation doesnt correlate! ERROR

    Do they come pre-calibrated? If not, I do not see any reason to purchase them for $1000.

    i'm having a hard time understanding why so many different colors are needed to be displayed when its estimated that the human eye can only see 10million. So we're missing out on ~90% of this monitor's capabilities. Am i missing something?

    Nice looking monitor tho.

    68 billion colours, as usual, is a marketing stun. As much as they want to convince the Joes, here is no tech invented yet that can display so many colours. Besides is useless. No OS is capable yet, as far as I am aware, of displaying more than 32bit colours, that is 16 million, so...

    It seems like it is pre-calibrated.

    The more I see articles like these, the more I feel pretty good about getting 3 IPS panels for 5760x1080 instead of paying twice as much for just one of these 2560x1440 panels. :pimp:

    IPS is definitely the way to go nowadays though. I'll never go back to a TN display.

    You can get 2560x1440 IPS monitors for $350, this monitor is just super expensive because it is color calibrated and endorsed by Adobe.

    I thought they need the extra precision for the calibration and when the backlight is not lit at reference level. 24bit is all we can distinguish, but once we mess with it we quickly lose dynamic range. More precision is also needed if we want an HDR display. By that I mean a display that can be as bright as outside in the sun and completely dark. Then the eye will adjust to different levels when you i.e. exit a cave and need "another" range of 24bit for the bright outdoors.

    Don't listen to this hypocrite Viewsonic! If we can have $500 motherboards with every bell and whistle, or a $1000 CPU for a meagre 3% performance increase... And not I'm not even gonna mention ram! We even have a GPU named Titan.

    You should know where I'm betting at: 120hz, strobing backlight, zero input lag, 8bit colors, precalibrated, 4K, IPS, 3ms gtg. It seems the only PC tech not improving is the very part we stare at all day. #%&#@$¥ grrr
