How to Choose the Right Computer Monitor

Few people, besides gaming enthusiasts, give a second thought to their choice of monitors when setting up a desktop computer at the office or at home. If we consider how much time we spend looking at screens every day, we will prioritise a desktop monitor that creates an enjoyable viewing experience and an ergonomic work environment.

If you have little space or a small budget, you will find plenty of affordable monitors – such as Dahua Monitors, Datavan Monitors, Dell Monitors, Hikvision Monitors, HP Monitors, Lenovo Monitors, Mecer Monitors, Posiflex Monitors, Samsung Monitors. Bigger monitors are more expensive, but put less strain on the eyes and offer a more immersive experience. If you opt for a large monitor, pay attention to the monitor’s resolution.  A monitor’s resolution indicates how many pixels a screen has along its width and length. Monitors can differ in size and still have the same resolution, in which case the smaller monitor will have a better picture quality. The more pixels a screen has, the sharper the display will be. It’s easy to end up with a poor quality display if you are trying to get the biggest monitor for your budget.

If you plan to use your monitor for gaming, make sure you choose a monitor that is fast enough. How fast a monitor is, depends on its refresh rate and response times. Refresh rate, measured in hertz (Hz) refers to how fast a monitor updates with new information and response time refers to how fast a pixel changes colours. Most good gaming monitors offer refresh rates of above 120 Hz.

If you need a screen that is easy on the eyes and contributes less to computer vision than convention screens, you need a screen that reduces harmful blue light emissions. The DELL 27″ S2721HN monitor, for example, reduces blue light emissions and has a flicker-free screen for workdays free of eye strain.
