The Best Computer Monitors for 2021


 The Best Computer Monitors for 2021

The monitor you're using right now might have come bundled with your desktop PC, or maybe you bought it back when 1,024 by 768 was considered "high resolution." Since you spend a huge part of every day looking at your screen, it pays to be picky when buying a new one—this is technology you buy that you'll stay with for years to come. And nowadays, you get a lot for your monitor money. Even many low-end panels utterly blow away high-end models from a decade ago.

The Basics: Pricing, Panel Types, and More
Regardless of the type of monitor you're in the market for, some general factors are worth considering. Here's a rundown of the key areas to keep in mind.

What Are the Price Ranges for Different Monitor Types?
Monitor prices depend on the target audience, the screen size, and the features of the display. For $100 or less, you can pick up a no-frills 22-inch or 23-inch model, but don't expect niceties such as a wide variety of ports and a height-adjustable stand at this price. But these panels do use LED backlighting, require little power, and are often bright. Performance is adequate for most entertainment or basic business and productivity purposes, but not well suited to tasks where color and grayscale accuracy are key.


At the other end of the spectrum are your high-end models that are geared toward graphic design professionals and photographers. Most of these are 27-inch to 38-inch panels that support 4K resolution (3,840 by 2,160 pixels), capable of displaying four times the resolution of a typical full HD (1,920-by-1,080-pixel, or "1080p") monitor. Moreover, they offer such features as a highly adjustable stand, a range of ports including HDMI, DisplayPort, and USB (often including USB-C), and a wealth of advanced image settings, including in some cases calibration hardware and software.
