Acer H257HU

If you require more pixel density than you get from a full HD (1,920-by-1,080) monitor, but don't have the money or desktop space for an Ultra-High-Definition (3,840-by-2,160) model, the Acer H257HU ($369.99) has you covered. This sharp-looking 25-inch...

This is an excellent monitor, you can pick it up for around 270$ which is not much for an IPS screen at 27 inch. Viewing angles are good, resolution is nice and its very thin while colors are crisp and clear.

LG Electronics 29EA93

The LG 29EA93 measures fairly well post calibration, so LG did a reasonably good job on the electronics side. However, while a 21:9 aspect ratio offering 2560 x 1080 resolution sounds like an exciting concept, it’s really a solution in search of a...

HP Envy 27 Display

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...

Viewsonic VX2363SMHL

For a 1080p gaming PC this bargain-priced monitor wouldn't be a bad fit. It's not going to last forever and the 23-inch panel isn't the biggest or most beautiful, but it's a decent IPS screen for the price.
