Test Methodology

A monitor review based on descriptive visual analysis will always have the underlying problem of subjectivity; assessments of panel quality will vary from user to user depending on their normative expectations. To get around this we’re deploying Datacolor’s Spyder 4 Elite professional monitor analyser to return a quantitative assessment of display quality.

These numerical results add extra utility to our reviews allowing us to more accurately benchmark the following display characteristics:

  • Colour gamut relative to sRGB and AdobeRGB industry standards
  • Brightness levels and contrast ratios
  • Colour uniformity
  • Luminance uniformity
  • Colour accuracy (Delta-E)
