Of course, demanding professionals demand…demanding specs, and the 324i seems to deliver them. It has a comfortably expensive pricetag to justify it, though, at $1,249. That much cash nets you some additional features most displays can only dream about, including just about every connector under the sun and an advance care warranty that ships a new display if a customer needs to make a warranty claim in order to minimize downtime.
For an additional fee, the 324i can be ordered with a blue hood as well as colorimeter. All versions will be available early next month.
