Hi guys.. another thread. Ive already asked this question on my first thread but I think its just better to make a new one. So with the SSD problem solved Im searching for an upgrade to my dell u2412m which is not color consistent even with calibration. Unfortunately a 4k monitor will not run with my mac mini (late 2012). Im looking at these ones but obviously Im open for suggestions. Like always thanks in advance. Budget ($900)

All of the displays you linked to would be great and I myself have looked at those models before getting the one I own now... an NEC PA272W which happened to be on sale and I snagged it for not much more than the VP2772's price, I figured that if I'm going to sit in front of this display for the next 5-10 years, it ought to be good.

The PA279Q comes with a glue-on hood and works best with its pre-calibrated profiles, which are already well within dE2~3.
VP2772 calibrates very well, but I have no idea if a hood is an option. I probably would have gone for this one if it wasn't for the discount.
The Dell is a popular display, but I'm not sure if it's as good as the other two. It has no hardware calibration nor uniformity correction.

I acquired an expensive camera so I can hang out in forums, annoy wedding photographers during formals and look down on P&S users... all the while telling people it's the photographer, not the camera.

How's been the experience with the NEC PA272W?

Pretty much ideal, so I'm at a loss of what to actually say about it - short of an Eizo, this is probably the best 27" display you can buy. Very easy calibration with the optional Spectraview kit, great color and uniformity, is built like a tank, etc.

Couldn't agree more. I have a PA272W and PA302W. I haven't seen an Eizo, but these monitors are a breeze to calibrate and display gorgeous images. They also weigh as much as a tank!

The weight part might be of trouble to anyone used to using display arms, since you'll need a pretty beefy system to hold these up. It's probably due to the display having a metal frame underneath the plastic outer shell. With the hood on, I actually use the top of the display as a shelf for papers and other small items.

I just re-ran calibration today and got around 0.24 dE @ 100cd/m. I think this figure would even satisfy a cyborg.

I have an older NEC PA241W and would buy the PA272W in a heartbeat if I needed a replacement. This has been an excellent monitor with exceptional uniformity. Incredibly easy to calibrate with SpectraViewII. I typically get Delta Es between 0.12 and 0.28.

Just in case someone wanders in here and doesn't know what we're talking about - delta-E is quite simply the point difference between two colors in the LAB color space, which incidentally does a good job of approximating how human color vision works. If one color is L:80 A:30 B:24 and another is L:80 A:30 B:20, that's a dE of 4.

Roughly speaking, dE~4 is about as much as the average person can tell apart two colors, while someone with perfect color vision and a trained eye can tell colors apart down to 2, with values less than 2 being considered imperceptible. In this context, a 0.2 error is 10x smaller than someone can ever hope to see. Of course it depends on the specific colors, as we're better at telling certain shades apart, among other factors.
