    Anyone know is the color scheme good for photo editing?

      100% sRGB (72% NTSC)

      If you get this then you absolutely need to get a colour calibrator and use that (you do with any monitor, but if you're gunning for a cheap monitor for photo editing, a calibrator is likely to be something you haven't thought about or plan to skip).

      It really depends on the level you're planning on using it for. Professional work? Probably not. Enthusiast/hobbyist? You'll be okay with some time spent calibrating it.

        What sort of color calibrator do you refer to?
        Or do you reckon the dell https://www.cheapies.nz/node/39338 deal would be a better one for photo editing?
        Thanks mate! :)

          I did a bit more digging, the monitor here I can't actually find accurate colour details on it, but an older 2020 version was only 72% sRGB which seems way too low, so I don't even think this one would be 100% sRGB - I think I saw specs for a different K3 model.

          So that Dell is 34" and the one here is 24". That one is also curved, higher res and higher refresh rate. Hence the much higher price. But it's also 99% sRGB, 90% DCI-P3.
          So yeah I'd probably choose the Dell over this Acer.

          You can edit on any screen, it just depends on how accurate you need/want to be. If you need a professional level monitor for colour accuracy, then you need to spend about $800-$1500 on a monitor. I personally have a $250 AOC monitor but it had an outrageous colour accuracy claim because it was a unique obscure model that didn't seem to be made anymore, and I'm not sure that it was true to be honest, I would get something better if I could afford it.

          This is a colour calibrator which is more important for someone who wants to print their work, but it's also good to have regardless:

          I have a similar one to this. You can also rent them from some photo shops.

          There's a little bit of middle ground though. You basically just want a screen with 100% sRGB and as much DCi-P3 as possible, 90% or more is okay.

          You should be able to land this for less than $650: https://www.newegg.com/global/nz-en/asus-pa248qv-24-1-wuxga/p/N82E16824281061?item=N82E16824281061&nm_mc=knc-googlenzadwords-global&cm_mmc=knc-googlenzadwords-global--monitors%20-%20lcd%20flat%20panel--asus--24281061&utm_source=google&utm_medium=organic+shopping&utm_campaign=knc-googlenzadwords-global--monitors%20-%20lcd%20flat%20panel--asus--24281061&source=region&srsltid=Ad5pg_EyMarfCj5S7uQj8pDGFJhKgKBZPJQzkIYUcDWncMgxYn19eaCD4ys

          • @chunder: wow thats brillant!
            not really a professional editor but felt that the color scheme on surface laptops were really vibrant compared to the other monitors i tried.. but thank you for that advice! will give the dell one a go i guess :-)
