Eizo FlexScan L578

The Eizo FlexScan L578 delivers better-than-average image quality and is well suited to imaging pros. Just be ready to pay more, as it's priced well above most 17-inch LCD monitors.

Asus PA248Q

The Asus PA248Q is a reasonably priced 24-inch IPS monitor offering solid performance and a generous feature set. Its grayscale performance is good but not great, though.

Acer T232HL

I’ve tried hard to separate my feelings for Windows 8 from the Acer T232HL display, but they are still linked together somewhat. Anyone buying a touchscreen display is likely buying it for Windows 8 now, and if the interface only supports it so well,...

Dell U2414H

The Dell UltraSharp U2414H balances fine image quality with a great selection of features. Ultimately, we prefer the larger resolution of its predecessor, the UltraSharp U2412M – which is still on sale – but it’s a close-run thing. If the Full HD...

Asus PA238Q

Another thing that the PA238Q does right is the OSD controls. For one, they are in the front, clearly marked and non-touch, making them easy to decipher and use than those that has them stash away in the back, and relies purely on memory to get one...

Samsung S24D390HL

The screen of the Samsung S24D390HL monitor measures 54x31x2cm with the 25x20cm stand raising it 9cm from your desk. The viewable screen is 51x29.5cm which gives the notional diagonal imperial measurement of 23.6inches. The default screen display is...

The monitor also has support for Nvidia's 3D Vision technology, which gives you active shutter 3D in games. This is an extra which many people will appreciate, although you will need Nvidia’s own 3D Vision hardware and a compatible Nvidia graphics card...

Samsung S24D590PL

Custom lets you tweak things as you like; Standard provides a good basic setup that isn't too bright; Cinema mode is a horrid, over-sharpened mess best avoided; and Dynamic Contrast, in common with most such modes, is punctuated by irritating...

AOC g2770Pqu LED TN 144Hz Set 1

The G2770PQU is not the most attractive monitor on the market, but it may be the best to offer a 144Hz panel. The fact that it offers image quality that’s nearly on par with the best budget 27-inchers we’ve tested is impressive given its $350 price...

Samsung S27C750P

The Samsung Series 7 S27C750P is an excellent monitor humbled by a few noticeable flaws. While well designed, the wobbly stand is a distraction, and the accurate picture is at times ruined by black crush that robs detail from dark scenes. Still, this...

Apple Thunderbolt 27 (MC914)

As a display, the Thunderbolt Display is no different than the 27-inch LED Cinema Display. You lose some of the resolution of the older 30-inch panels but you get a much more compact form factor that feels far less overwhelming on a desk. Having the...
