DisplayMate: Microsoft Surface Pro 3 screen is one of the best
DisplayMate, known for its thorough testing of screens, has just taken a hard look at the 12 inch display used on the Microsoft Surface Pro 3. Gushing with praise for the slate's display, the report says that the Surface Pro 3 has the most accurate on-screen colors on any tablet or smartphone it has tested under the current standards. The color gamut is 97, while 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."

The  tablet has a brightness reading of 371 nits which tops many tablets, but does trail the Apple iPad Air's 449 nits reading, and the 527 nits scored by the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9. Screen reflectance for the Surface Pro 3 scored a very good 5.9 (lower score is better) which puts it in between the 6.5 achieved by the iPad Air and the 5.0 tallied by the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9. But it did trail the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 by 26%. The latter has the record score of 4.7 in this category. The screen on the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is not an energy hog, as it used less energy than smaller screens did during testing.

Overall, DisplayMate still favors the displays on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5, but does say that in most categories it is neck and neck with the Surface Pro 3. In third place is the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9, while the Apple iPad Air is now in fourth place, according to DisplayMate.
