Do you spend a lot of time at your computer mixing, recording, listening, watching, and more? We hope you have a monitor you love.
Computer monitors are a vital part of your setup — when selecting your new one, the first thing you should consider is how you're planning on using it. Do you use your computer for emails, surfing, or basic programs? Grab one of our simple monitors! If you are a content creator, get one of our multimedia monitors which are designed for professional content creation. And for ideal response when editing movies and videos, grab a monitor with a 5 ms response time or less.
When it comes to display types, you have three basic options: IPS, LED and LCD. IPS delivers amazingly deep blacks and true colors, perfect for photo editing and gaming. LCD monitors usually couple an affordable price tag with great performance. If you get an LCD monitor with LED backlighting you can expect excellent overall picture quality and a thinner design.
Do you need a personal monitor for everyday use? Consider 20 inches and under. If you need computer monitors for editing your work, anything from 21 to 26 inches is a great choice. For a massive amount of space, have a look at any of our monitors that are 27 inches and larger.
What resolution should you get? HD (1366 x 768) and HD+ (1600 x 900) are great for everyday use, delivering a quality picture at a reasonable price. Of course, if you're doing some serious work, enjoy a crystal-clear picture with one of our Full HD (1920 x 1080) monitors. Any resolution above Full HD is perfect for professional photo or movie editors who need amazingly detailed images.
Do you have an older computer? Make sure your computer’s graphics card will support the upgrade to a new monitor. If you have any questions, give our Sales Engineers a call and we'll help you choose the best computer monitor!
