Digital Camera World Verdict

While it may not quite offer the same bang per buck as its smaller 27-inch SW271 sibling, the SW321C is a superb monitor for image editing. It's image quality is near-faultless, offering wide color space coverage and exceptionally accurate color reproduction. It's not the brightest display on the market, but for serious photo editing, that's not an issue. If you must have a 32-inch display over the equally impressive 27-inch SW271, you won't be disappointed by the SW321C.
