    It seems there are now 17.3 inch high gamut displays available. I want to put one in my P170EM to use it for photo editing. Can someone supply me with type numbers please?

    Thanks, but I was specifically interested in a matte high gamut display. Until quite recently these displays did not exist in 17.3 inch. It seems the AUO B173HW01V7 is such a display. Unfortunately display manufacturers don't publish product specifications, at least they are not accessible for us.

    Thanks again, but 72% is normal gamut. High or Wide gamut is 90 ~ 95% gamut.

    You're right, until quite recently there were only high gamut displays in 15.6 inch, but now there are 17.3 inch versions also. I suppose the Clevo resellers in this forum should know.

    No, not yet. I hope to get some type numbers quite soon. For some odd reason display manufacturers are very secretive about their products. Perhaps we should ask Edward Snowden :D ?

    Do you work in adobeRGB? If your workflow is in sRGB then a calibrated 72% gamut matte screen will cover your needs. I work in sRGB because most people view online images in this colorspace and because the printers I use work in sRGB, and I'm not a high end landscape photographer that needs absolute color fidelity. Wide gamut displays are not necessarily better for photo editing unless your workflow is using a wide gamut colorspace.

    I believe Dell and HP have 100% adobe RGB matte screens (IPS, too), so they are doable, but I haven't seen the need.
