  2. Chris 7 years ago

    I was thinking about getting a MXO2 Mini or Blackmagic Intensity Pro. Then one day I was at a bar watching two TV’s beside each other (same model, same channel) and noticed…hey, the color is different even though they’re the same TV’s! Then I thought, won’t all TV’s be a bit different, so no matter how I calibrate it, it won’t look EXACTLY like that? My point is, if my primary purpose was to monitor HD editing, is the MXO2 Mini worth putting down the extra cash?
