Product Specifications

The incredible XL30 is a masterpiece of dynamic design and professional performance. LED BLU technology allows it to go way beyond the NTSC color gamut standard to provide a wider range of colors than ever, fully covering the Adobe RGB natural color space, and meaning you will see colors on screen as you see them in the real world. A truly professional experience, this monitor will bring a whole new dimension to the work of photographers, designers and anyone who enjoys truly high quality images.
