Samsung S27B971D

My expectations for the Samsung S27B971D were high after seeing their demo at CES and how they calibrate displays. They increased when I opened the box and saw the calibration report with some pretty incredible numbers on it. While the initial...

Acer K272HUL

If you've been itching to move up to a big-screen, Wide Quad High-Definition (WQHD) monitor, but have been holding off until prices dropped below the $500 mark, your wait is over. The Acer K272HUL is a 27-inch, In-Plane Switching (IPS)-based display...

Philips 242G5DJEB

The Philips Brilliance 242G5DJEB/00 is an excellent gaming monitor, but our main concern is the price. At just under £290, it's more expensive than the AOC myUltraSpeed G2460Pqu and the larger Iiyama Prolite GB2773HS, both of which have 144Hz refresh...

Dell UP2414Q

Why spend upwards of $700 on a monitor? Because it runs at 4K resolution, of course. The pixel density and color accuracy of Dell's new UltraHD display simply can't be bested at this price.

Benq GW2760HM

A monitor that stands out for its stellar contrast ratio and performance, the GW2760HS might be the only monitor to go for at this size and price. Oh and by the way, when we say stellar, we really mean stellar. No other monitor comes close, or even...

Philips 298P4QJEB

If a typical widescreen display just doesn't give you the screen real estate you need and you don't have room for a dual-screen setup, it might be time to consider an ultra-wide monitor. The Philips Brilliance MultiView (298P4QJEB) ($699.99) sports a...

Viewsonic VP2770-LED

It seems like only yesterday that the race to bring full HD (1,920-by-1,080) resolution to the desktop monitor was in full swing. Now that HD monitors are fairly commonplace we're starting to see Wide Quad-HD or WQHD (2,560 by 1,440) and UHD (3,840 by...

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...

LG Electronics 29EA93

While we applaud LG for trying something innovative, this may be a case of too much, too soon. However, if you don’t have the desktop space for two full monitors, the 29EA93 may serve well as a normal desktop display.
