Dell P2314T

The Dell P2314T suffers from the same problem as the larger P2714T – a price that’s just too high relative to its image quality. Indeed, the value of the 23-inch model is arguably worse, because even Dell ships Ultrasharp monitors with better picture...

Dell S2240T

Touch-screen monitors are everywhere these days, thanks in large part to the proliferation of Windows 8 systems, but most of the models we've seen carry a premium price. The Dell S2240T ($349.99), on the other hand, brings 10-point touch technology to...

Acer XB270H / HA / HL

Nvidia has hyped up its G-Sync technology since its 2013 launch, but this is the first time we've had one of these screens on the test-bench. Acer's XB270H doesn't just have Nvidia's latest tech in tow – it's got a 144Hz refresh rate, too.

HP Envy 27

Let's face it: Most desktop monitor speakers are so underpowered and tinny sounding that they are virtually unlistenable at high volumes. If you like your music loud but don't have a good set of external speakers handy, the HP Envy 27 27-inch IPS LED...

BenQ GL2760H

The BenQ GL2760H ($299) is a 27-inch Twisted Nematic (TN) monitor that offers a fast pixel response, low input lag, and an affordable price tag. It won't blow you away with its overall performance, and it doesn't offer much in the way of features. Our...

Samsung's entry into the Windows 8 touch-screen monitor arena, the S24C770T ($649.99 list), is a sharp looking 24-inch model that uses MVA (multi-domain vertical alignment) panel technology to produce bold, accurate colors and a highly detailed...

When we reviewed the AOC E1649Fwu portable USB monitor last year it earned high marks for its color and text quality and affordable price but we thought it was a little bulky and suffered from narrow viewing angles. Its successor, the AOC E1659Fwu, is...

ViewSonic VG2401mh

The on-screen display appears in the middle of the screen, and it’s reasonably well organised – most of the relevant screen options are held inside one menu, and it’s easy enough to skip up and down. It’s not the most attractive menu system we’ve seen,...

The VX2880ml is a well specified and reasonably priced 28-inch monitor that represents a worthy entry into the 4K market for ViewSonic. As it should be for a 4K monitor, the image quality at the native resolution is stunningly sharp and clear. There...

Budget monitors are getting better. With prices arguably as low as they can ever go, to make your low-cost display stand out from the crowd, you need to give the sort of performance we'd have expected from a mid-priced monitor of a few years back. This...
