If you're doing work like color grading, creating digital art or just making video content the most comprehensive spectrum available will always be an asset to have. When you're shopping for a monitor, the first thing to consider is the cost and what features it has. This might be one of the most important decisions you make when you decide on a new monitor. There are many options to choose from and it's easy to get lost in all of the features available.
You should think about two main features though - the colour space and the response time. It's important that you find a monitor that suits your needs because the differences between the two can mean the difference between seeing everything accurately or seeing garbled images. The comprehensive spectrum added an extra benefit when it comes to image clarity and vibrancy which many factors like screen size and refresh rates are involved with.
The colour space refers to the number of colours you can display whereas the response time is the actual response time as measured in terms of screen life. Response time is directly related to the refresh rate because the faster the monitor, the better quality of the image. You need to consider the response time when buying an appropriate monitor, because the faster it is the more accurately you'll be able to see your creations. The most widely accepted definition for ideal response time is somewhere between six and twelve milliseconds. You can expect a monitor to have higher response times in certain uses so don't expect a twenty-eight milliseconds response time to be ideal in every case.
The next feature to consider is the range of viewing angles. Some of the monitors available have wider colour spaces, but they also tend to have narrow viewing angles. This isn't always a bad thing because with the wide colour spaces available on some models the colours are more distinguishable, and so a wider angle allows you to see the colours at their most true level. But the narrow angles can make the images look sharper and may make you prefer to use the narrow viewing angles for printing documents, and the narrow angles for video production where you want to make the images as sharp as possible.
Finally, a good monitor will be compatible with the Adobe RGB colour space. The reason why you need this compatibility is that the monitor will be outputting the same colours as your computer. If you're using a laptop, then it's likely the screen space provided is too small to display the required range of colours anyway, but if you're using a desktop, then your screen space will be too narrow for the range of colours supported. So what you want is a monitor that can output the correct range of colours, regardless of the screen space provided, and a monitor that has a high peak brightness so you can ensure that the screen doesn't brighten too much during use.
Asus PA32uc monitor from China is one of these monitors, and they are popular with many consumers because of their great colour accuracy and high contrast ratio. The monitor has a very fast response time, and so is suitable for people who need fast action gaming, as well as for making videos. However, it has a low 'motion detection' setting, which means that if you have a motion on your video, such as an animal walking across the screen, then the monitor may not recognize that action and may show the wrong colour. In addition, the screen can get too bright if the lights are too bright, which is a problem common to many modern TVs, and not something that the Asus PA32uc is particularly prone to.
