Hi,

 

Im looking to invest roughly $1200 on a grading monitor.

Could someone with good knowledge with monitors put me on the right direction?

 

I'm thinking a second hand 2009 hp dreamcolor which has been really popular in the past or a new eizo sx2462W.

 

What would people recommend?

 

Thanks

My choice would be the Dreamcolor, as it has a wider gamut than the other contender and is better suited to video applications (P3 color space emulation is pretty good).

It might be really hard to find one with low hours though.

 

Considering it's already 5 years old, you may want to look for newer alternatives (2013 models).
