    What is the best monitor for photo editing? Colour-accurate monitors offer true-to-life reproduction of photographic images, but price and performance varies. We’ve tested four of the top models available to see which monitor is best for photographers.

    Best monitor for photo editing: 01 Eizo ColorEdge CG243W

    Best monitor for photo editing: 01 Eizo ColorEdge CG243W

    Price: £1,200
    Buy it: www.eizo.co.uk
    This thoughtfully laid-out monitor has a versatile swivelling screen, which makes fitting it into your workspace a doddle, even with the (included) hood in place.

    The menus are sensibly laid out, with icons popping up above the buttons so you always know what to press, even in a darkened studio.

    The included calibration software enables you to build an ICC profile quickly, and the 1920×1200-pixel display offers high-end reproduction, but this doesn’t come cheap and, at 24 inches, this is the smallest monitor on test.

    Pros: A high-end, flexible monitor with rich, consistent colours
    Cons: Only 24 inches; functional rather than stylish design; pricey

    Score: 88%
