All,
We're looking for replacements for Sony BVM-X300 reference monitors. They wear out so very fast and we're open to the idea of going off piste with something else.
Anyone out there getting HP Dreamcolor as a replacement for that level of monitor? Or some other "extreem-level-but-not-officially-reference" monitor tech.
Or these:http://flandersscientific.com/XM311K/
Any other recommendations also of interest.
The application is 4K-HDR

Hi Ken,
That's very interesting. You're not the first to suggest Eizo, but if you are trialing them can you send back your results/impressions! Even with the converter, that would more than half the outlay.

The biggest hurdle may be the X300 using OLED while others are LCD/LED, especially if you need the displays side-by-side with a large LG OLED.
Were considering the EIZO CG3145 as we expand our HDR monitoring.https://www.eizo.com/products/coloredge/cg3145/ As I recall this monitor hits the Dolby Vision requirements, which is something we need. The only real disadvantage we can see, aside from not being OLED, is the lack of HDSDI inputs. That can be overcome with an AJA Hi5-4K-Plus converter.
