    A non regular person explained the difference. :D
    That's why such forums are kind of useful.

    I currently have the NEC PA242W (which is now replaced by the similar PA243W) and I love it. Not only does this support a wide color gamut but it has inputs that can handle multiple cable types. I have three computers connected to my monitor using display port, dvi, and hdmi and everything works beautifully. And it is less expensive than EIZO.

    Nothing at all special about those Apple displays, at least in comparison to the SpectraView's and Eizo's under discussion.
  4. I am perhaps in a similar boat as the OP, looking for a quality monitor upgrade. I have been using the NEC Multisync 3090 WQXi for many years, calibrating with Spectraview and the x-rite Display Pro colorimeter. Given that the PA series of NEC is increasingly unavailable, including no longer at Tiger Direct, are we perhaps left only with Eizo as a quality monitor replacement with good color calibration? I am looking at the Eizo CG2730, which states on B&H "Once connected, the display can be calibrated, to ensure improved color accuracy using the built-in color measurement device along the Digital Uniformity Equalizer (DUE), for true color representation from the center of the display all the way to the edges. To back up the color calibration capabilities of this display, EIZO has utilized their own microchip designed for precise and consistent color quality. This EIZO monitor also comes with a copy of ColorNavigator software and light protection shields." I have been very happy with my NEC monitor and Spectraview calibrations, but it is getting long in the tooth. I am curious if the EIZO setup might be a suitable quality replacement and offer the quality and ease of use I am accustomed to with NEC/Spectraview?
