Best Computer Monitors

Best Computer Monitors – Our recommendations are based on what we think are the best computer monitors currently available. They are adapted to be valid for most people, in each price range. Rating is based on our review, factoring in price and feedback from our visitors.

If you would prefer to make your own decision, here is the list of all of our monitor reviews. Be careful not to get too caught up in the details. Most monitors are good enough to please most people, and the things we fault monitors on are often not noticeable unless you really look for them.

1.LG 32UD60-B 4K UHD

Features



OUR TAKE

At 32 inches, this is a large monitor, but thanks to its thin bezels surrounding the screen, the actual footprint isn’t that big, so it doesn’t feel inordinate on your desk. The adjustable stand is easy to put together, supports height and swivel adjustments but lacks tilt adjustment. There’s a cable notch at the back of the curved stand, allowing for routing your cables without causing a mess of your desk space.

On the LG 32UD60-B, connectivity options are scarce, but acceptable for the work environment. All ports are located around the back, where you have an HDMI and DisplayPort 1.2 and a 3.5mm audio port. With HDMI 2.0 you can now use HDMI to display 4K visual at 60Hz, meaning you can plug a PS4 Pro or Xbox One X into the monitor and use it as a main display.

2.SAMSUNG Odyssey G7

Features



OUR TAKE

The Samsung Odyssey G7 is amazing for gaming. It has a native 240Hz refresh rate, FreeSync support, and it’s compatible with NVIDIA’s G-SYNC. The response time at its max refresh rate and at 60Hz are both outstanding, resulting in minimal blur.

Its narrow viewing angles make it less ideal for co-op gaming, but luckily, it displays deep blacks if you want to game in the dark. We received reports of the backlight flickering with VRR enabled, but we didn’t notice any flicker; rather the screen dims when a certain image is displayed full-screen.

3.DELL S3220DGF

Features



OUR TAKE

The Dell S3220DGF is an impressive 1440p gaming monitor. It has a curved design and it doesn’t take up much room, even with the support stand attached. Gaming feels responsive due to the fast refresh rate and low input lag. Also, the native FreeSync support should help reduce any screen tearing.

It can display deep blacks in a dimly lit room thanks to its VA panel’s high contrast ratio. That said, its viewing angles are inadequate, which means that images look washed out when viewed from the side. It has decent reflection handling and okay peak brightness, making it suitable for a moderately-lit room, but visibility can be an issue if there’s direct light.

4.ASUS ProArt PA32UCX-PK

Features



OUR TAKE

We originally published our Asus ProArt PA32UCX review on November 4, 2019, and at the time it was the only mini-LED monitor out there. However, CES 2020 in January brought promise of numerous additional monitors using this technology, namely the Asus ROG Swift PG32UQXAcer Predator X32 and Lenovo ThinkVision Creator Extreme. MSI is even launching its Creator 17 laptop with mini-LED this month.

The upcoming Asus and Acer monitors should be cheaper than our review subject since they target gaming, and the smaller Lenovo screen and MSI laptop, naturally, will also be lower-priced. The ProArt PA32UCX is still at the same price as when we reviewed it. This review was conducted before these was such strong promise of more mini-LED PC consumer displays in the near future.

5.Alienware 55 OLED

Features



OUR TAKE

If you’re going to enter the market as the first OLED gaming monitor ever made, you might as well break in big, right? The Alienware 55 OLED Gaming Display is a 55-inch 120Hz FreeSync gaming monitor that seeks to bring the ultra-dark blacks of OLED technology into the gaming dens of hardcore players and the living rooms of console casuals alike.

The 3,840-by-2160-pixel ultra-high-definition 4K display uses an OLED panel, a first in the world of gaming monitors (and also, possibly, the last, but more on that in a bit).

WRAP UP

Best Computer Monitors – It can be hard to choose the best monitor for your needs, as they vary significantly in size, shape, and performance. There are different types of monitors depending on the desired use, and there’s no catch-all monitor that is perfect for everyone. However, some monitors are more versatile than others.
