Excerpt: I bought this monitor to replace my aging Apple HD Cinema 30" display. While my old display was beautiful to look at, it wasn't up to the task for color rendering and soft proofing. Now with the my new CG277, the color rendering for both sRGB and Adobe RGB are accurate. Goodbye wasted time and prints! Plus with the self-calibration built-in and performed on a weekly schedule, I can do what I love without worry.
Excerpt: extremely precise colors to match color proofs.hardly any need for printing.what u see on screen matches color proofs extremely closely.built in spectrometer validates colors to match press standards.results always come up nearly identical to reference profiles (SWOP, GRACOL etc)software is great and allows to jump from one calibration to another for pre-press very easily.vertical setup, cool but, not so useful as when on vertical, you'd realize how narrow is screen.a...
Pros: Color Precision, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use
Excerpt: I was looking to "step up my game" in the photo editing department, so after spending considerable time researching the possibilities I decided to invest in this monitor. I need a good monitor mainly for editing photos in Photoshop and other editing software. Previously I was using a 1920x1200 native-resolution monitor, so I was missing out on seeing the photographs I edit in a larger size, not to mention the issues with color calibration.This monitor does it all.
Pros: Accurate Display, Best Color Workflow, Convenient Calibration, Easy Calibration, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use
Excerpt: If I were not a professional photographer who depends upon my images being post-processed and printed correctly, I would not spend this much money on a monitor. But the results I have seen (and the confidence that I have in my post production process) is very good and it is a direct result of the monitor.Let me back track a bit. I used to have an iMac and used my iProfile calibration method to do everything.
Excerpt: Since I've received the monitor, I noticed how powerfull the quality of the image I produce start to be... It is true that, what you see on the screen it is what you have in printing, with the best final results for my clients and my job. It is very friendly and I like the ergonomics when working in both, vertical and horizontal way, which is great when processing in long journeys. It is great how easy you can handle it once on your work station, no matter its weight.
Excerpt: Great monitor to work with. It helps to retouch on a nice, large screen. The built in calibrator is a plus and makes one less thing to keep track of. Very convenient to set up automatic calibrations as well.
Excerpt: A monitor is often the first chance a photographer and a client get to see an image. Having a monitor that has the potential to be the authority on color (granted you take the time to set everything up correctly) is amazing. The color uniformity is fantastic. Buyers beware that once you own one of these you will be a monitor snob. There are many monitors out there, but not many like this one!
