I want to replace my ancient 24" HP monitor with a new one. It’s a secondary monitor to a large extent, my primary mac is a 27" iMac. The new monitor will be for the 2018 mini running catalina with capture one, final cut and other photo software, though I’m not as serious about them as I’d like to be (too many hobbies). I need a stand with full adjustability (height, tilt, swivel), though I could live without pivot. I’d also really like 4K and adobe RGB, but I can’t justify having it all (Seems to be $990 up.).
I’ve become addicted to the 27" size, but I could go smaller. I haven’t found anything great in 24" either, though. So far I’ve narrowed it down to two, both on sale or clearance. Both are 27", have two hdmi ports and have fully adjustable stands.
LG 27UK670 27" 16:9 4K FreeSync IPS Monitor
$400. 4K, but only sRGB, It’s glossy with a coating of unknown goodness.
Dell UltraSharp 27 UP2716D 27" 16:9 IPS Monitor
$600. 2K, but adobe RGB. Matte surface, which I’ve seen on older ultrasharps and liked, assuming they’re doing the same here.
I feel kind of like the starving donkey equidistant between two hay stacks.
Many thanks for any suggestions.
