By the fine folks over at DisplayMate. The Surface Pro 3 is Microsoft’s largest table to date, and judging by the results of this test, it comes with one of the very best displays.
As revealed here, the Surface Pro 3 is a highly advanced piece of hardware that features the most accurate colors on the market — beating many other similar devices out there, including the iPad Air and the Galaxy Tab S.
DisplayMate points out:
“Microsoft has produced an excellent professional grade high performance display for Windows. In fact, the Surface Pro 3 has one of the very best and most accurate displays available on any mobile platform and OS.
It joins near the top of a small set of Tablets that have excellent Top Tier displays – ideal for professionals that need a very accurate high performance display for their work, and for consumers that want and appreciate a really nice and beautiful display.”
Although its peak brightness of 371 nits is a few notches lower than the iPad Air (449 nits) and the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 (527 nits), this is not particularly an issue for most users.
The reason being that the slate is less likely to be operated outdoors, owing to its large screen size.
However, the Surface Pro 3 has the most accurate colors of all tablets on the market — an important factor for professionals and regular users alike that use it to view photos, watch videos, edit documents, or create artistic or multimedia content.
The full test, along with details is available at the link above, and is a rather illuminating read.
