Professional monitors always come at a premium price. But for the extra coin you can get multiple color gamut options, factory-certified calibration, and, often times, the ability to create your own color presets with included software and instruments. When you need the absolute best color accuracy, one of the screens below can fulfill that need, usually without any initial adjustment or calibration.
Prices for our pick for best 30-inch wide gamut professional monitor are on the rise this week. The NEC PA302W is currently available for $1,759 (£1,638) on Amazon after dropping to $999 (£930) last week. The price tag is also high on Newegg at $1,894 (1,764). We’ve seen this monitor go over the $2,000 threshold, but these are still steep prices.
