1.Samsung 27-Inch

Pros & Cons

Speaking of HDR, even without the benefit of FreeSync 2 or a Radeon card, the CHG70 did very well in displaying both HDR videos and games in our testing. There are some quite capable recent gaming monitors that do not support HDR, including the Dell 27 Gaming Monitor (S2719DGF) reviewed just before this model. But with HDR compatibility becoming more common in AAA games, it’s becoming a feature worth looking for on gaming displays as a future-looking item, and its inclusion serves to a monitor’s advantage.

Between its balanced resolution, HDR capabilities, FreeSync 2, high curvature, wide color gamut, and very good image quality, the Samsung CHG70 27-Inch Curved Monitor has a lot to recommend as a gaming monitor—enough to earn it our Editors’ Choice. Even better, it can double as a very able monitor for video watching.

2.Acer SB220Q bi

Pros & Cons

Though the price wobbles up and down by the day, many retailers—including Amazon, Newegg, and TigerDirect—sell the Acer SB220Q for less than .  But this compact, general-purpose display doesn’t wobble itself, and it shows that “cheap” need not mean “shoddy.”

It has a typical, basic feature range of a budget monitor, with a smaller screen than some users may be satisfied with. But its 21.5-inch IPS panel is amazingly thin, with very good color accuracy in the sRGB space. The SB220 is a good choice as a second monitor if you are space-strapped, and it is reasonably portable. For only a little more money, though, you can find 24-inch panels with a wider range of features.

3.LG 27UK850-W

Pros & Cons

The LG 27UK850-W monitor is based on an IPS panel, which ensures accurate, consistent and vibrant colors making this display adequate for professional photo-editing tasks.

It supports 10-bit color depth (8-bit + 2-bit FRC), it’s factory-calibrated and it covers 99% of the sRGB color space.

As if that’s not enough, the 4K UHD resolution ensures stunning detail clarity with over 8 million pixels, which on the 27″ screen of the LG 27UK850 display result in a high pixel density of 163 pixels per inch.

Such high pixel density will make everything look tiny, so you will have to scale up your interface, which will, in turn, make everything bigger, crispier and more detailed.

4.HP Pavilion 22cwa

Pros & Cons

IPS technology is one aspect that makes it the right choice. Another is the slender bezel that provides seamless and borderless viewing satisfaction.

The Full HD display resolution of 1920×1080 is one of the reasons, which has offered the same detail clarity as those offered by more expensive monitors.

The diagonal viewing capability and the full-screen support provided for lower resolutions are also two of the important features you can get from such an affordable monitor.

If you are working on wider images, you can also adjust the scaling without hurting the image’s original aspect ratio.

5.Sceptre 27″

Pros & Cons

For gaming, the Sceptre x270W works great. The large size and high resolution makes it perfect for this, and the 2ms response time means there’s no smearing when you’re playing an FPS. The screen is bright and crisp, and it’s excellent for watching movies as well.

I also found that the base is supportive, but limited in its range of motion. This isn’t a huge issue, but it was slightly annoying when I was setting up the monitor initially. If you move or adjust your monitor a lot, it might be more of an issue.


Best Computer Monitors for Music Production – For us, ultrawide monitors are simply the best type of computer monitors for home studio applications. Working on an arrangement with it spread across the entire depth of an ultrawide screen is a sight to behold, and you’ll struggle to go back once you’ve tried one.

As a great ‘first’ ultrawide, the LG 34WN80C-B is easy to recommend. It has enough connectivity for most users, and – if you’re upgrading from a laptop screen – all that extra real-estate will feel genuinely game-changing.
