1.Sceptre IPS 27-Inch

Pros & Cons

When it comes to the all important specs the max screen resolution is 3840 x 2160 pixels, the refresh rate is 75 Hz. and can run at 75 Hz.

This gaming monitor weighs 9.1 lbs – important to know if you’re taking it to live events or college. The color of this monitor is Machine Black.

PCGameBenchmark ratings are built up from the scores of the Amazon community, to show the most important aspects of a PC gaming monitor. We merge those scores to create a percentage rating. On brightness this monitor scored a 4.7/5, value for money 4.6/5, picture quality 4.2/5, for gaming 3.7/5 and on tech support 3.1/5. That makes an aggregate score of 81%.

2.HP VH240a 23.8-Inch

Pros & Cons

The VH240a employs a 23.8-inch (measured diagonally) in-plane switching (IPS) screen, with full HD/1080p resolution (1,920 by 1,080 pixels) and a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. The panel has a respectable pixel density of 92 pixels per inch (ppi), which is more than enough for typical home or office use, though photo or video enthusiasts will likely want a screen with a higher pixel density.

As is typical of IPS displays, the VH240a has very wide viewing angles, rated at 178 degrees for both vertical and horizontal. I saw a minimum of color distortion or posterization, even when I viewed the screen from the most extreme off-center angles.

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.BenQ EX3203R

Pros & Cons

The EX3203R’s 31.5-inch, 10-bit vertical alignment (VA) panel has a native resolution of 2,560 by 1,440 pixels (QHD), with a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. Its pixel density of 93 pixels per inch (ppi) is fine for a gaming or general entertainment monitor, though it’s not ideal for tasks such as editing photos. (All else being equal, the greater the pixel density, the sharper the image should be.)

The screen is sharply curved, rated for 1800R curvature. This means that if you could place enough EX3203R monitors side by side to form a complete circle, it would have a radius of 1,800mm, or 1.8 meters. Curved screens offer the user a more immersive experience than flat screens. We have only seen two or three monitors, all gaming models, with a curvature greater than 1800R, the maximum being 1500R.

5.AOC CQ32G1

Pros & Cons

The AOC CQ32G1 is a fairly well-rounded 32 inch 1440p curved monitor with good gaming performance. It’s a 144Hz monitor with native FreeSync variable refresh rate (VRR) support and it’s G-SYNC compatible. The input lag is extremely low, but sadly, the response time is slow, resulting in motion blur. Luckily, it has a black frame insertion feature to help improve the appearance of motion.

AThis monitor has a VA panel with a very good contrast ratio and it has surprisingly fairly wide viewing angles, so it’s still a good choice if you need to share your screen with a friend, but unfortunately, it has very limited ergonomics. This monitor doesn’t support HDR, but on the upside, it has good overall picture quality with great out-of-the-box color accuracy and it has great peak brightness.
