Reader Comment: NEC PA 302W Wide Gamut Display with Calibration

Bruce Z writes:

I just wanted to tell you, I saved just over $200 on the NEC 30” monitor buying it from B&H instead of our local guys (which is too bad because I like to support my local guys, but hey, they left me no choice really.)

That $200 goes nicely towards your consulting fee, so you and I both win there!

And WOW, a 30” monitor … how the hell did I manage without one before!

I am working through your other recommendations, starting with OWC back-up systems, etc. The new Mac will come last.

DIGLLOYD: [Bruce is referring to savings at Canadian prices over his alternatives; B&H ships to Canada]. The NEC PA302W is currently at $1699, which is about $1000 less than it has been for some years.

UPDATE 29 June: The price has been moving around and the B&H price on the PA302W has now apparently lapsed. OWC also carries the PA302W, as does Amazon.

The PA302W remains my primary workhorse display, still has a 'killer' color gamut better than most anything, an eye-friendly pixel density, and I strongly favor the 2560 X 1600 work area over a cramped widescreen 2560 X 1440.

The color gamut of the PA302W is shown below; it is the outer triangle. Its gamut extends far beyond that of AdobeRGB in the reds, magentas and blues. Given that some Epson and other brand printers can print beyond AdobeRGB, it is my view that a display with this sort of gamut is ideal for assessing “master” images—editing for display limitations (most displays) even as printer gamut exceeds some areas of display gamut makes no sense at all: it’s hard to make valid judgments on color, let alone saturation, and detail will be lost. Doing that to a master image (one from which prints are made now and in the future) is a very bad idea.

PA302W color gamut goes way beyond AdobeRGB in the rads and blues
