    Hey guys,

    About to buy a 4k monitor, primarily for editting and a bit color.

    Right now I'm looking at the LG 31mu97z, specs seems nice and there's a great thread on reduser about this monitor. But it's also from 2014, are there currently any better solutions? Or should I stick to the LG?

    Is that the one for $2000?

    Side note: Isn't F'ed up that we can buy a 5K iMac with a 5K DCI P3 (10bit) monitor plus the entire computer for $1800-$2300.

    It's about $1399$, seems great for the price! It's 4k dci, 10bit, 99.5 rgb, and factory calibrated.

    Timothy, I took your advice and went with the iMac 27" Retina 5K DCI P3 10bit colour. Resolve 12.3 takes advantage of the 10bit P3 capabilities. So far so good while I'm working in a raw 2K/ProRes HD timeline.

    I believe my NVIDIA Quadro K5200 card puts out 10 bits...

    Also received the X-Rite i1 Display Pro OEM RevB Probe - purchased from Light Illusions.

    Also received the Atoch unit for my Ursa.

    Also received two Samsung 850 Pro 1TB SSDs.

    I can now sell my two 128GB CFast2 cards...

    Also managed to get my Mastercard interest rate down to 11.9%.

    All-in-all, a good week. No purchases planned for the next few months...

    Yes, worked with iMac's for a few years now. It's a big step up for sure, grading in resolve never felt so smooth. Really happy!

    What about Seetec 4K monitors? Now they have 23.8 inch and 28 inch 4K monitors, and the price are both below $1000. Links of the monitors are as below, maybe it is a reference for you.
