I’m doing web design (not print or photography) and I’m wondering if I should spend extra money on a display that provides more accurate colors.
I’m already set on buying IPS since they’re easier on the eyes, but I don’t know if i should just settle for 6-bit or be more concerned about color accuracy and go with 8-bit.
I honestly wouldn’t worry about colour accuracy for web. Every person in the planet will see the site in a different shade (so to say). One thing is using web safe colours, that will actually make a difference if you have, for example, overlapping layers (like a non-transparent image on the same colour background). But a website will be seen in anything from an old 15″ to a monster 30″+ monitor, passing though mobile, and everything with different resolutions, brightness, contrast, etc. I’d go for a comfortable decent sized monitor.
