As with our mice selection, Best Monitors that we think suit graphic designers will be limited to what we have used and/or tested. Here you will be able to find the selection. It is not the Top 10 or Top 12 like others like to present them. We would like to share only what have been touched by our team at Rhino Red Prints. Those monitors at one point or another, served us well and helped us work on our line of vector file drawings. Some of the other designer work that we’ve done was also accomplished with the help of the monitors mentioned below.
There is no clear winner, except if you are looking only at the price. Each and every one of the items stated has pros and cons, since there is no perfection invented so far. But some of those come pretty close. With that said, we would like to add that if you are not into Graphic Design professionally it is best to stay away from the expensive options here. However, for professionals money wouldn’t matter since this is the tool that will help make even more of those.
Samsung U-E590D – Samsung delivers great device as expected. They are not focused on anything these days, producing tablets, laptops, smartphones and up to jet engines. But we must give ’em this – E590D is a great tool. With nice smooth refresh rate, brilliant picture quality and high resolution, this monitor suits many and for many needs. It is definitely not tailored only around graphic designer’s needs. The only let down that we must add are the viewing angle issues.
Dell UltraSharp U2720Q – This is one very beautiful monitor. Contrary to the widespread belief, Dell’s monitor is not on the high-end price spectrum. For the qualities that it possess, the tag is decent. It is truly a professional monitor featuring 4K, USB-C, HDMI and more. The colors are amazing, hardly disputed by any other product at that same price. We enjoyed every moment with that tool. We can highly recommend it.
BenQ PD3200U – As with the previous mentioned, here we have wonderful and accurate colors and excellent image quality. Large screen and 4K resolution moves this monitor up in the ranks and many consider it to be more than enough for any graphic designer. BenQ is of course very respectable brand among technology users which only adds to the equation. The price is decent and depending on where you are located, you can get nice sale options.
Eizo ColorEdge CG319X – 4K HDR support, fantastic colors with accurate presentation, this monitor is perfect for drawing and editing and will suite the professionals easily. It is one of the very best options on the market, however that comes at a price. And the latter one is pretty unpleasant. However, if you are serious worker and you spend hours and hours in front of your monitor this will correspond to your needs and goals. No hesitation if this is your day job. It costs a lot, but that is no accident. After all, we all know that you get what you pay for.
Lastly, for the Apple fans:
Apple Pro Display XDR – as with everything else the mega company does, this is a nearly perfect product. It is rather expensive, but if you are into Apple’s eco-system, you shouldn’t look no further. Color quality is exceptional. Contrast is superb. Everything about it is great, but mostly – it is the technology of the Apple embedded. It simply works. Graphic designers as many photo editors and video makers swear by it. There is more than one reasons why.
So this pretty much sums it up. Before you buy, do your own research. Just because we at Rhino Red Prints like those described above, doesn’t mean you will enjoy them too. Besides, vector drawings and blueprints /red prints in our case/ that we make does not require excellency in terms of hardware. Any mid-range equipment will do just fine. With that said, we do other work as well and we trust that monitors mentioned will help you as much as they helped us.
