2.Acer SB220Q bi

Pros & Cons

For a sub monitor, the Acer SB220Q bi’s performance will most definitely exceed your expectations on casual gaming and media consumption. The good performance is thanks to speedy pixel response and refresh rate. There isn’t noticeable blurring or ghosting on games like Crysis 3 (PC) and Grand Theft Auto V (Sony PS4), provided your desktop/laptop pushes fast and fluid action. However, there is discernible screen tearing with FreeSync disabled, but enabling it restores a noticeably smoother picture. The same effect is seen with the VIOTEK GN27DB and Pixio PX277-N, as well.

The SB220Q’s 26ms input lag (the time it takes for the monitor to react to a controller command) is a little bit on the slower side for a gaming monitor, but this monitor isn’t built for pro-gaming, it just moonlights for budget buyers before upgrading to a real gaming monitor. The Acer Predator XB271HK leads the pack of gaming displays at 10.2ms.

3.HP VH240a

Pros & Cons

Based on an IPS panel, the HP VH240a monitor provides wide 178-degree viewing angles meaning that the picture won’t shift in color and contrast when you look at it from skewed angles.

The monitor supports 8-bit color depth via dithering (6-bit + 2-bit FRC) for 16.7 million colors and covers the basic sRGB color space, i.e., 72% NTSC (~100% sRGB).

However, it’s not factory-calibrated, so you will need to make some alterations to get the best image quality possible out of this monitor. We recommend this website for calibration.


Pros & Cons

I was looking for a small portable monitor, the size of a laptop screen with a HDMI input. Most big brands offer sizes of 22″ and larger, but during the COVID crisis I needed something smaller for a streaming setup in my spare room. This WHOLEV model seemed to fit my needs (I got the 12″ version).

Also in the box is a VGA cable, a HDMI cable, a 12V wall-wart power adapter and a stand. The latter slots into the back for desktop use, but there are also four screws that allow for mounting on other arms without the stand (I don’t know if it’s VESA compatible – sorry). The whole setup is very light, weighing barely one pound. A double-adhesive pad for the stand is included too, so that it can be stuck in its place to avoid moving around.


Pros & Cons

Best Monitors for Security Cameras – CCTV, high-resolution camera,  stands for closed-circuit television. This is the original technology that was created in the 1960s. This technology has gone through many upgrades and changes but remains basically the same today. CCTV cameras with digital video recorders are the most commonly used technology. A CCTV camera sends a video signal to a DVR using a video cable. The camera’s signal is analog, not digital and the DVR converts this analog signal into digital, and then records video to a hard drive. This technology is most cost-effective and provides a simple straightforward installation. The quality of the signal is great because these are cameras with high resolution and the format of the signal is the format that DVR was set to save it.
