Shopping for a New Monitor
How are you planning to use your monitor? Answer that question, and you’ll be well on your way to finding one that’s perfect for you.
For tasks like e-mail, social media, surfing the Web and paying bills online, you probably don’t need a high-performance monitor with lots of extra features. Many lower-priced monitors are available, and you don’t have to settle for a small screen. Even average-sized monitors (23″-24″) with Full HD are probably more affordable than you think.
Monitors for multipurpose use provide the display quality and performance you need for everyday activities, like streaming music and movies, sharing photos and slideshows, videoconferencing and creating spreadsheets. An LED or IPS monitor (see Display Types section) with Full HD resolution works well for multipurpose use. If you get a larger monitor (27″ and up) or touchscreen monitor, it can double as your home entertainment center.
Photographers, graphic designers, video production artists and other multimedia professionals need a monitor designed for content creation. This means a larger screen with at least Full HD or Quad HD resolution for more screen space and highly detailed images. Also, you can’t go wrong with an IPS panel with its deep blacks, accurate colors and wide viewing angles. If you’re editing movies and videos, look for a monitor with a response time of 5ms or less, to reduce motion blur and ghosting, a faint trail left on the screen from previous images. You might also consider getting an adjustable stand or dual-display mount for easy, ergonomic viewing.
Gamers need a monitor that can keep up with the speed and intensity of today’s games. We recommend at least Full HD resolution, a response time of 5ms or faster, a refresh rate 60Hz or faster, and a horizontal viewing angle of 178° or more. If you enjoy dual boxing, add a second monitor to your gaming setup for a great view of each character’s screen at the same time.
