Apple’s Pro Display XDR is priced at Rs 4,49,900 in India and according to the iPhone maker, this is the monitor for professionals. It even goes extra miles claiming that its latest monitor can match the quality of professional displays that are much more expensive.
To test this claim, Vincent Teoh, a reviewer for HDTVTest, has compared the Pro Display XDR against Sony BVM-HX310, which will set you back Rs. 28,54,260, to see if Apple has exaggerated the ability of its own product.
Before he compared the two displays, Teoh did some tests on the color accuracy, brightness, and contrast of Pro Display XDR. In the process, he has found some flaws with Apple’s display.
Issues can be found with brightness, color accuracy, contrast, and screen uniformity, which makes Teoh concludes that the display is more suitable for content consumption rather than content creation.
As the Sony BVM-HX310 was mentioned at the launching ceremony of the Pro Display XDR, Teoh picked this monitor as the reference. Apple monitor had a hard time keeping up with the quality of Sony’s display. Even if one cannot afford the Rs. 28,54,260 price of BVM-HX310, Apple’s monitor is far from being a viable alternative for content creators.
Teoh concluded that Pro Display XDR is a big no for professionals as it was only an IPS display featuring 576 full-array local dimming zones.
Many would argue that it is not fair comparing a Rs 4,49,900 display with an Rs. 28,54,260 monitor but since Apple made the comparison itself at WWDC, this comparison is just a test to see if Apple was truthful about the ability of the Pro Display XDR.
