Best 4k Monitors

Best 4k Monitors – In fact, as more content is released in 4K and desktop PCs come with ever-increasing performance, due to the inclusion of GPUs such as the Nvidia Geforce RTX 3080, UHD is fast turning into the standard. So, you’d be doing yourself and your rig a favor by getting one of the best 4K monitors. That’s because beyond future-proofing your rig and getting a better viewing experience, such monitors also deliver extra screen real estate, making them ideal for multitasking and for creative workflows.

1.ASUS 24″ 1080P

Features



OUR TAKE

The furore has died down since May 2020, but there’s still plenty to be said for a monitor with a built-in webcam. Remote working is going nowhere and the BE24EQK manages to kill two birds with one stone at a lower price than many of the high-end webcams we’ve tested.

The trouble is, in order to keep the price as low as it has, Asus has had to make some aggressive compromises. The BE24EQK is certainly the cheapest 1080p monitor with a built-in webcam we’ve ever seen, but it’s far from the best.

The Asus BE24EQK was created to take advantage of a unique situation. It launched in May 2020 at the peak of the webcam shortages, when office workers across the globe were getting to grips with taking meetings remotely and desperately hunting for a cheap way to be seen and heard over Zoom.

2.ASUS VP28UQG

Features



OUR TAKE

The Asus VP28UGQ is so easy to put together that you won’t even need a tool belt, nevermind a tool box. You simply insert the panel into the thick stem sticking out of the circular base, paying attention to alignment. A screw with a handle makes it easy to tighten by hand. I used a screwdriver to make sure things were as tight as possible.

Sick of screens eating away at bezels? Well, with the Asus VP28UGQ you won’t be. Many (often pricier) monitors are moving toward slimmer bezels. But the VP28UGQ’s black, matte plastic border is a proud 0.75 inch (19.05mm) thick. That’s enough space for a shiny Asus logo and, unnecessarily, HDMI and DisplayPort ones. (Sure, brag about the brand, but are we really so proud of our ports?)

3.Sceptre IPS

Features



OUR TAKE

It combines an edgeless design with a host of other gamer-centric features than most 24-inch competitors, but does so for much less. The cabinet is supported by a V-shaped stand that provides 15 degrees backwards and 5 degrees forward adjustments, in addition to a detachable neck and base.

The Sceptre monitor is as functional as it is attractive. It lacks pivot, swivel and height adjustments, not surprising at all. The wide stand base keeps the monitor in place without breaking the clean aesthetic. I honestly can’t thing of any single flaw in the 1658A’s design. A pair of built in speakers suffice for your audio needs – though, not loud enough for gaming.

4.BenQ SW321C

Features



OUR TAKE

At the heart of the SW321C is a 32-inch (708.48 x 398.52mm) 4K display with a native resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. This equates to a crisp 137ppi and 0.1845 dot pitch. The 10-bit wide-gamut IPS display boasts excellent colour space coverage – 100% sRGB, 99% AdobeRGB – particularly impressive – and 95% coverage of the DCI-P3 video color space (the cinematic equivalent of sRGB).

Wide 178/178-degree viewing angles promise accurate contrast regardless of your viewing position, helped by an anti-glare and anti-reflective coating. A 5ms response time is more than fast enough for photographic applications, as is the maximum 250cd/m2 brightness.

5.LG 27GL83A-B

Features



OUR TAKE

The LG 27GL83A-B is a great monitor for gaming. It has an extremely low input lag and an outstanding response time, resulting in clear motion with little blur behind fast-moving objects. It supports FreeSync variable refresh rate technology (VRR), but it’s also certified by NVIDIA to support VRR from recent NVIDIA cards. On the downside, it may be difficult to place it comfortably due to its lack of swivel and limited ergonomics.

It has wide viewing angles, good reflection handling, and very good peak brightness, so glare shouldn’t be an issue. As a more budget-oriented model, it has a pretty basic stand, with limited ergonomics and no RGB lighting. Although it supports HDR, this doesn’t really add much, as it can’t get bright enough to deliver a true HDR experience and has a low contrast ratio.

WRAP UP

Best 4k Monitors – Perhaps it’s time to upgrade to one of the best 4K monitors. Although 1080p and 1440p displays are hardly obsolete, there is a lot more content these days that may be enjoyed at 4K resolution, which is sharper and more detailed. And, the only way to truly enjoy and give that UHD (ultra-high definition) goodness justice is on an excellent 4K display.
