Ultimately, however, it's those professionals – graphic artists, publishers and the like – that stand to get most out of this wonderfully colour-accurate monitor. If sufficient budget is available, we doubt the XL30 will disappoint for those users. For everyone else, we recommend you plump for a more conventional and affordable 30-incher and if you want to spend a little bit more, it's still well-worth considering the LCD3090WQXi at around £1,500 (inc. VAT). But one word of advice: make sure you never set eyes on the XL30. That way you won't have to discover quite how much you are missing when it comes to colour accuracy.
