It can be challenging to opts for the best PC monitor for your requirements as these vary significantly in size, shape and performance. There are different kinds of monitors depending on the desired use. There’s no catch-all monitor which is perfect for everyone. However, some monitors are more flexible than others and offer a vast range of characteristics for gamers and office users alike.
Here is our list of the monitors that we like.
Dell UltraSharp 27 4K USB-C Hub (U2723QE)
The Dell U2723QE has a prodigious feature set. It has a full range of ergonomic adjustments as well as all the ports we would want to see in a so-called “USB hub” or “docking-station” monitor. It is able to charge a laptop via its USB-C display connection. It even provides Ethernet connectivity if you are in an office with not great Wi-Fi. This Dell model has a 27-inch 4K (UHD) screen that boasts a high pixel density and wide colour gamut.
It’s one of the first two PC monitors to include IPS Black, which is LG’s latest flavour of in-plane switching (IPS) technology. It offers far better contrast as opposed to standard IPS displays. About the only common business feature that it is missing is a webcam however only a select few desktop displays have one.
The U2723QE sells at a sufficiently high price that you’re probably not likely to outfit an entire office with them. However It would be a great choice for meeting-heavy managers (or other critical workers), particularly ones who are involved in dealing with creative content as one area of their job. It’s not a full-on graphic-arts monitor however it is good for photo and video work in a pinch, and it’s a straightforward attach/detach for a regularly toted laptop.
Asus ProArt Display PA278CV
This is a 27-inch PC monitor that has a wide variety of ports and decent colour accuracy on most of its presets. The exemption is its sRGB preset, which offers amazing accuracy but locks the display at a fairly dim brightness too low for daily use.
The PA278CV has an HDMI port, an input and output DisplayPort, a USB-C port, and four USB 3.0 Type-A ports. This makes this monitor particularly good for anyone who wants to utilis theirs with a laptop. It provides sufficient power to charge most 13-inch laptops. Its flexible stand tilts, swivels, pivots and adjusts in height so it’s ideal for work and for playing at an online casino South Africa has to offer. It also has a three-year warranty with a great dead-pixel policy.
Samsung 27-Inch SF354
Most people who are looking for a new monitor don’t require anything extravagant. No matter how cheap you’re going, 27 inches and 1080p are good standards to keep. The Samsung SF354 hits both of those marks at an amazing price and it has a slim design with fairly thin bezels surrounding the frame.
Also, the SF354 utilises PLS panel technology, which is Samsung’s take on IPS. You’ll get decent viewing angles as well as realistic-looking colours. It’s not for gaming or intensive content creation however this basic Samsung monitor is everything that the average person requires in a work monitor.
