Sony LMD-2030W via BM Intensity Pro 4K HDMI. This is a professional monitor, not a TV.

HD 10bit is as high a resolution as I need, and this monitor is serving me well for now. When/if a replacement is required, I would probably move to a Flanders.

Not really professional, surely, with 8 bit color, TFT panel and not even native full HD meaning pixel mapping is required.

Maybe the US version has a different spec.

I have a Viewz preview monitor and really like it. I wanted to edit more in 1080p60 and my component JVC was 1080p30 at it highest, I started searching. There were a lot of price differences in the market. I tried the Viewz after talking with their sales department and was very happy with the image even though it is priced in the budget range.

I do not need 4k or 10bit from a monitor, just for it to be true.

Let me qualify that statement then.

In it's day it was billed as a professional monitor for editorial work, not as a grading monitor. There are/were much better monitors available, but I was more than happy to get this one as I got it for $0, and my intent was not to use it for critical grading. As I said, I would lean toward a Flanders as a replacement when/if the need arrises.

Critical grading is passed on to a proper colourist and grading/finishing suite, but it is close enough for the event videography that I do colour on it, and pixel remapping for editorial is not that big an issue, as it is more about story edit that direct 1:1 pixel mapping.

It is all relative to what the purpose of the monitor is.

Nor do I need 4K or a 10bit panel, as long as the monitor can ingest a 10bit signal and dither to the 8bit panel reasonably well.

I am pleased with the BenQ http://www.benq.ca/product/monitor/BL2711U. reasonable price and works well from the Intensity Pro 4K. Have to admit the output from Resolve look stunning compared to EDIUS or Vegas though. Not sure why.
