Pros & Cons

Additionally, the monitor has a color gamut of 72% NTSC, which is equivalent to ~99% sRGB. In other words, the colors are accurate, consistent and vivid.

Out of the box, you may want to make some picture adjustments by using this website as a reference.

Here’s the kicker: the 1080p resolution looks crisp and sharp on the 23.8″ viewable screen of the ASUS VP249QGR. You get a decent pixel density while the resolution is not too demanding, allowing you to maintain high frame rates even with entry-level gaming GPUs easily.

2.ASUS 24″ 1080P

Pros & Cons

The Asus VG248QE is a decent monitor overall. It does particularly well with gaming usages due to the excellent motion handling, and its good brightness means it won’t look dim even in well-lit rooms. Unfortunately, its mediocre picture quality and very narrow viewing angles make it a bit less versatile.

The Asus VG248QE is a good 144 Hz LCD monitor with a 1080p resolution and a slew of gaming-oriented features. It has very low input lag, and its high refresh rate and low motion blur make for very fluid and responsive gaming. However, its very narrow viewing angle and ordinary picture quality make it less suitable in office environments or for those that watch a lot of movies in a dark room.

3.DELL Optiplex 790

Pros & Cons

Though it may look like a toy, it’s far from flimsy. Businesslike plastic façade aside, the chassis is built from sturdy sheet metal. Its solid construction and matte finish give reassurance that the OptiPlex will withstand the knocks and scuffs of office life as well as its larger cousins.

It has a decent amount of power too. Our review sample featured a 2.5GHz Intel Core i5-2400S – the suffix signifying the low-power version of Intel’s 32nm chip. It still has Turbo Boost though, with one core able to reach a maximum of 3.3GHz. In our Real World Benchmarks the system achieved an overall score of 0.7, indicating plenty of power for desktop applications – though it’s some distance behind the 0.9 and above we’d expect from a full-power Core i5-2500 system


Pros & Cons

The Gigabyte M27Q is excellent for gaming. It has exceptional response time, low input lag, and a high refresh rate to deliver incredibly smooth and responsive gameplay. Its large, high-resolution screen feels immersive, and it has wide viewing angles so that you can share content easily.

Unfortunately, it has poor ergonomics, which makes it harder to place the screen the way you want. Also, it isn’t well-suited for dark rooms because it has a low contrast ratio that makes blacks appear gray.

5.HP M27ha

Pros & Cons

Measuring 20.1 by 24.4 by 8.3 inches (HWD) and weighing 11.5 pounds, the M27ha is a typical size and weight for a 27-inch economy monitor. Its top and side bezels are quite thin, but its thick black screen borders lack the sleek appearance of the near-edgeless LG 24MP88HV-S.

The 27-inch in-plane switching (IPS) screen offers full HD (1,920-by-1,080-pixel) native resolution and a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. Its pixel density is 82 pixels per inch (ppi), which is fine for household or home-office use but less than ideal for photo or video fanciers.


Best Monitors for Dual Screen Setup – The best dual monitor setups provide a great deal of freedom, make it much easier to multitask, and provide a more immersive gaming experience. When shopping for monitors for a dual setup, the selection criteria are a bit different. Most people look for thinner bezels, so there’s less space between the displays. Dual monitor setups can either be VESA mounted or simply displayed side-by-side on the same desk, in which case great ergonomics are a must.
