As 4K monitors gradually become outdated, make sure to consider the good 5K monitors available on the market. 4K displays have lower resolutions so it’s worth examining the most recent offers from the leading manufacturers. In this review, we have listed the pros and cons of the best 5K monitors.

1.LG 34WN80C-B

Pros & Cons

The LG 34WN80C has a maximum refresh rate of 60Hz, and it lacks FreeSync support, which would allow it to change its refresh rate dynamically and thus keep screen tearing at bay.

Given that it’s not a gaming monitor, this is not surprising, though since FreeSync is royalty-free, including it wouldn’t have increased the monitor’s price.

Regardless, video games will look great thanks to the monitor’s high resolution and vibrant colors!

You may be able to overclock the monitor up to 75Hz for a little kick in motion clarity, but since every monitor is at least slightly different, your mileage may vary regarding just how far you’ll be able to overclock your unit of the monitor.


Pros & Cons

The Samsung CRG9 is a good super ultrawide monitor. Its 32:9 aspect ratio provides plenty of space for an immersive gaming experience and allows you to work comfortably with multiple windows opened side-by-side. It has good reflection handling and gets very bright, enough to overcome glare with ease. Fast-moving scenes look clear and smooth, as it has a high refresh rate and quick response time, and it supports variable refresh rate technology to reduce screen tearing.

Unfortunately, despite having a VA panel, its contrast ratio is only decent, and its edge-lit local dimming doesn’t improve black level by much. Also, black uniformity is bad on our unit, although your experience may vary. Viewing angles are sub-par; however, the screen’s curvature helps with visibility on the sides. Lastly, it can deliver a pretty good HDR experience thanks to its wide color gamut and high peak brightness.

3.Sceptre Curved

Pros & Cons

The Sceptre C248W-1920RN is a curved 24-inch FHD (1,920-by-1,080) designed for casual gamers, or users who spend equal amounts of time working on a desktop PC and a laptop PC. Although not as expansive as the Samsung CRG9 49-inch Curved Ultrawide Monitor we recently reviewed, the C248W is a much more conventional monitor than that super-ultrawide behemoth.

Its resolution and refresh rate are commonplace among 24-inch gaming monitors, but its appearance is rather unique, and looks expensive than its actually costs.

4.MSI Ultra Wide QHD RGB

Pros & Cons

A high-refresh-rate ultrawide gaming display, MSI’s $799 Optix MPG341CQR introduces a range of features to the gaming monitor space that gamers didn’t even know they wanted, and it posts some remarkably low input-lag figures.

Its color results may not be ideal for creative professionals, and the HDR quality leaves a bit to be desired. But outside of those quibbles (which don’t affect this panel’s core audience), the Optix is one of the best values among 34-inch ultrawide gaming panels today, and it earns our Editors’ Choice.

5.Apple iMac

Pros & Cons

It was adept at handling Adobe InDesign (which we used to lay out the news pages) and the dozens of Chrome tabs and Word docs I had open at any given moment. All this while looking more stylish than any other piece of tech in the room.

The new iMac looks and feels no different. Literally. I’ve been using the new 27-inch model in the tiny bedroom of my New York apartment for almost a month, and unboxing it brought a wave of memories of the many hours I spent in that old newsroom. It looks the same, and is still just as elegant.
