We have an aging family iMac with a Retina 5K display that makes 4K displays look anemic. Ours, of course, has fingerprints on it because half the girls think it’s little more than a big iPad on a stand, but even oily human residue doesn’t dim that display.
Why can’t you buy a Retina 5K display? Anton Shilov has specs on a 27-inch 4K.
Like its predecessors, the UltraSharp 27 4K PremierColor Monitor UP2720Q is particularly aimed at photographers, designers, and other people with color-critical workloads.
Does it work as well as the Retina 5K display that came with the iMac?
The key new feature of the UP2720Q is its built-in colorimeter, which is compatible with CalMAN software and allows users to ensure that they use the most accurate colors possible. Typically, monitors used for graphics and photo editing need to be recalibrated every several months and integrated colorimeter stands to make the task much easier.
They do? Oh, and why the name UP2720Q? Did Dell get help from Sony to name the display? How much? $2,000. Next year. Meanwhile, Apple’s entry-level Retina 5K iMac starts at $1,799.
