Top 5 Desktop Monitors

Like if this guide is helpful
Because of their size, desktops can provide users with more features and power than compact laptops and tablets can. However, many desktops do not come with a monitor, which leaves shopping for one up to the buyer. Although they may seem like simple devices,
1 AOC E2462VWH

The large, 24 in AOC E2462VWH is one of Techradar's top choices when it comes to desktop monitors. The screen is large enough to be great for gaming, videos, and browsing. The experts on the site do say that that the plastic used for the casing feels a little cheap, but for the low price, the AOC is still a bargain. The screen is thin and lightweight with a touch of a tilt adjustment to get the viewing angle right. The matte screen finish reduces the glare that glossy screens suffer from. There is VGA port, HDMI port, and an audio jack on the back of the monitor. However, the monitor lacks a DVI input.


2 Dell UltraSharp U3014

The Dell UltraSharp U3014 is even larger than the AOC at 30 in and is is PCMAG's top choice. It delivers brilliant colours and sharp images. Unlike most monitors, the Dell also has a wide viewing angle which means that even if people stand to the side of the monitor, they can still see the images. The screen brightness, power button, and colour balance buttons are located on the right side of the screen and rather than being push buttons or touch buttons, these are proximity buttons. In other words, all it takes is hovering a finger close to the button for it to activate. No touching is necessary. The settings are easy and fun to navigate with this kind of feature. Unfortunately all the bells and whistles that come with this beast of a monitor also come at a high price. The Dell is one of the more expensive options available.


3 Lenovo LI2721s Wide

According to PCMAG, the Lenovo LI2721s has a wide viewing angle, an IPS panel and good colour quality at an affordable price. Its 27 in screen is large and the overall appearance is stylish. It is not the best choice for gamers, however, because of a slow pixel response, but it great for standard computer use and videos, with sharp images and a screen that does not suffer from glares. The Lenovo monitor is also LED-backlit to keep the screen bright. It has an HDMI port, VGA port, and DVI port.


4 Yamakasi Catleap

The Yamakasi Catleap comes from a Korean company that is still somewhat new in other parts of the world. Lifehacker.com lists it as a good pick for many reasons. The monitor has the same high quality IPS panel that Apple uses in their products. Yamakasi built this desktop monitor for users who want the best quality at the lowest price. It does not come with a lot of the fancy features that other monitors do, with only a DVI port, but the bright LED screen is 2560 px by 1440 px.


5 Acer T232HL

The Acer T232HL is comes with a slightly higher price tag, but also uses the ten-point touch screen technology. Its colours are brilliant and the viewing angles and performance are excellent. The monitor won the Editor's Choice award for best touch-screen monitor at the time of its introduction. The screen is 23 inches, which may feel a little small when compared to the more common larger ones. However, 23 inches is still pretty big. Those who like the same touch capabilities that they get with their mobile phones and tablets would enjoy the Acer. It also comes with a 3.0 USB port, which is somewhat rare.
