Choosing a PC monitor can be a real headache, given the multitude of options available on today's market. Between size, resolution and display technology, it's easy to get lost in the criteria to consider.

Determine your use

Do you work in an office and your job consists of surfing the web, processing texts and jumping from one meeting to another? Then a Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) 21" to 24" screen is ideal for you.
Example model: Dell (24″) Monitor - SE2422H or BenQ (24") Monitor - GW2480T

For the best gaming experience, choose a screen with impeccable fluidity and responsiveness. Choose a model with a high refresh rate, such as 144 Hz or more, and a short response time. As for display technology and resolution, it all depends on your preferences and budget.
Example model: Asus TUF Gaming VG279Q1A or Acer Nitro XV272U KF

Do you do video editing or graphics? If so, you'll need a high-definition screen, offering the precise color reproduction you need. A high resolution of 2K or 4K is recommended, and opt for a display technology that offers a wide color gamut.
Example model: Dell UltraSharp U2720QE or BenQ PD2705U

Choose the right display technology

When considering a monitor purchase, it's crucial to take display technology into account, as it directly influences your viewing experience:

TN (Twisted Nematic): the most affordable and offer fast response times, making them ideal for video games. However, their viewing angles and color reproduction are not always optimal.

IPS (In-Plane Switching): excellent color reproduction and wide viewing angles, making them ideal for graphics and video creation. Response time may be slightly higher.

VA (Vertical Alignment): deep contrasts and intense blacks, making them ideal for watching films or playing video games in dark environments. However, their viewing angles are not as wide as IPS models, and they can have longer response times.

Need extra features?

  • Integrated speakers
  • Ergonomic stand: tilt, swivel and adjust monitor height for optimum comfort
  • G-Sync and FreeSync: these technologies from Nvidia and AMD respectively reduce screen tearing for a smoother gaming experience.

Now that you're familiar with the various options available and their features, you're ready to choose the monitor that best suits your needs. So, find the one that suits your needs and enjoy an optimal visual experience!
