1.Acer SB220Q bi

Pros & Cons

Now’s a great time to buy a new PC gaming monitor. So many games are enhanced with great graphics, there are always Acer deals to be had (no need to wait for Black Friday 2020) and there’s a massive range to choose from. High quality graphics are super important when you’re playing and the gaming monitors sometimes sold with PCs are pretty rubbish.

You may also want to use a monitor alongside a gaming laptop. The display size, also known as viewable image size (VIS) is the physical size of the area where videos are displayed – not the monitor case itself.

2.Dell U2721DE UltraSharp

Pros & Cons

The Dell U2721DE is a decent 1440p, 27″ monitor. Dell’s UltraSharp lineup tends to focus more on office features than gaming, and this one is no exception. It has great connectivity, including USB-C power delivery support, and it even has a built-in RJ45 (ethernet) port, which is extremely rare. Like most Dell monitors, it has excellent ergonomics and a simple design that looks great in any setting.

It’s not as good for gaming though, as it has a limited 60Hz refresh rate, a relatively slow response time, and no dedicated gaming features, and like most IPS monitors, blacks look gray in a dark room. Overall, it’s a very good office monitor and a decent choice for media creation, but gamers are likely to be disappointed by it.

3.Philips 226E9QDSB 22″

Pros & Cons

All settings can be changed by a single knob. By holding down the knob, you can turn off the monitor. Personally, we prefer a quicker way to turn the monitor off. The settings easily accessible are the Input Selection, Image presets called “Smart Image”, and Brightness. These image presets are mostly intended for gaming as there are no color accurate presets.
The monitor also highlights a Low Blue mode. It is Philips’s rebranding of the blue light filter, night mode or reading mode found in other devices which reduces blue light to lessen eye fatigue.
Other settings include the usual manual picture adjustments of brightness, contrast, sharpness and color. Additional features include Fast Response and Fast Contrast which increases the speed of the backlight panel. These settings don’t increase the framerate but they do make games feel a bit more responsive.

4.LG 27QN600-B 27”

Pros & Cons

The LG 27QN600 display has a maximum refresh rate of 75Hz, which provides a small but noticeable boost in motion clarity when playing fast-paced games.

Of course, if you mainly plan on playing first-person shooters and competitive titles, then you should consider a 1080p 144Hz gaming monitor, which you can also get at this price range for significantly smoother performance.

In case you just play casually from time to time or prefer slower-paced games, then 75Hz might suit you just fine. Keep in mind that 1440p is considerably more demanding than 1080p, so reaching 75FPS in the latest AAA titles in order to take full advantage of the monitor will require a decent graphics card.

5.BenQ EW3270U

Pros & Cons

The BenQ EW3270U is a good 4k monitor with decent picture quality. It has a VA panel with a high native contrast ratio and decent black uniformity, allowing it to produce deep, uniform blacks. It has a low input lag and fast response time to deliver clear images with minimal motion blur; however, the refresh rate is limited to 60Hz. Gamers will surely appreciate its FreeSync support and G-SYNC compatibility, and although it supports HDR, this monitor can’t get bright enough for a satisfying HDR experience.

Also, its ergonomics are quite bad and its viewing angles are just okay, so it may be worth investing in a VESA mount if you often need to share work or content. Overall, it’s a monitor that performs well for most uses and its simple design should fit anywhere.
