- Multiple Connection options, Speakers, as well as a USB3.0 Hub
- Insane color accuracy (99%)
- Tons of work space as well as “Picture in a Picture” options
- Consistent and stunning 4k resolution
- Heavy duty, high quality, and professional build & design
- Weight! 55lbs for the whole box, and approximately 31.3 lbs for just the monitor
- The Price. At about $3,000 it’s a bit out of reach for the average pro-sumer, but in their defence, this is aimed at the more professional level market.
- At 4K, this thing will strain your computer and leave you with a noticeable input lag if you don’t have a newer and more powerful system. You’ll definitely want a good 4k capable video card and a powerful processor. My 2011 model MacBook Pro was straining at times to keep up with me.
After some pretty extensive use, (and revelation that I need to invest in a new power computer), my only opinion on downsides about this display are the weight, and the price tag. If you’re using an older computer/device that doesn’t quite have the video processing power the newer models have, you will definitely notice some overheating and/or response latency when running at the full 4k, but it’s arguable that it’s worth the wait. As a photographer and timelapser, the monitor packs a lot more punch that I actually need versus a $500-1000 competitor model, however, a working professional in the video and VFX world, or an absolute color-perfectionist, I could see this being a dream come true device for you. Is this device worth the price tag? Absolutely! But the average working photographer may have to pinch a few pennies while we wait for the price on this guy to come down a little.
We give the NEC Multisync PA322UHD 4K Monitor four out of five stars for exceptional quality, connection options and color accuracy at the cost of weight and price.
