10 best monitors for photographers
If a person is professionally engaged in photography , then the choice of a monitor should be approached with special care. If the picture is not adequate, then the photographer will easily screw up in his work, and the result will be not the pictures that the customers asked for. We can assume what this threatens – negative reviews about the work are unlikely to add a plus to the photographer’s piggy bank.
The task of the display is to convey colors as faithfully as possible and to realize the photographer’s idea. Hence – the high requirements for monitors for photographers. We have compiled a list of monitors that have received good reviews – you can listen to the opinions of buyers and draw your own conclusions.

10. BenQ PD2500Q
Diagonal : 25
Price : $299.
Model BenQ PD2500Q includes different modes – there is also a function to reduce the load on the eye. There are glare, but minimal, and almost imperceptible even at the maximum brightness and with a black screen.
QND does not differ much from FULL HD when viewing photos, however any text is much smoother and clearer. Buyers are satisfied with the work behind the monitor, and even call it an advantage in itself. BenQ is well-known among good monitors in terms of price / quality ratio. The good news is that all the settings “straight from the factory” are calibrated, and there is no need to set them yourself. The monitor is definitely recommended for purchase.
9. NEC MULTISYNC EA275WMI
Diagonal : 27
Price : $649
For this money, it is difficult to find a more worthy option. The monitor is excellent: no creaks, no swaying and no glare. The picture quality of the NEC MULTISYNC EA275WMI is above all praise – it was not for nothing that this monitor was sold out (but you can search in online stores, perhaps it still remains somewhere).
I am glad that there are no dead pixels, the backlight works evenly, which allows you to work comfortably behind the monitor. Buyers note that it is better to take a monitor in white (there are 2 of them: in white and black). 27 inches is an excellent diagonal. Given the good factory color settings, you definitely won’t have to worry about the accuracy of the shades.

The stand allows you to twist the monitor in all planes – very convenient. You can find fault with the quality of the image if you want, but is it necessary? The colors can be adjusted and the monitor will not look different from the professional one. Go for it!
