DisplayMate does have a reputation when it comes to testing screens out, and the folks over there recently took a look at the 12” display that sees action alongside the Microsoft Surface Pro 3. In fact, they had nothing but praises to sing concerning the Surface Pro 3’s display, touting that this particular model comes with one of the most accurate on-screen colors on any tablet or smartphone that had undergone testing using existing standards. Just how close to life the colors can be?
Well, the color gamut happens to carry a value of 97, and it was stated the “Absolute Color Accuracy for the Surface Pro 3 is an Excellent 2.1 JNCD, the most color accurate display that we have ever measured for a Tablet or Smartphone.”
Other than that, the tablet itself boast of a brightness reading of 371 nits, and this figure alone is capable of placing it in front of numerous other tablets. Do take note, however, 371 nits of brightness still makes it lag behind the iPad Air’s 449 nits reading, while the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 managed to score a whopping 527 nits. One thing is for sure though – you cannot win them all, and so it goes without saying that if you are in the market for a tablet that has an above average display, the Surface Pro 3 could be your cup of tea.
