Buyer's Guide: The Best Monitors

Our pick of the best LCD displays

Editor's Choice : BenQ BL3200PT

This monitor is our surprise favourite of the moment! You may need a large desk to make room for this 32", 13 kg display, but the large screen size combined with QHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels) and a pitch of 0.27 make it a very pleasant model to use. It boasts a nice, deep black (2500:1 contrast) and accurate colour fidelity (Delta E = 2.3). The 12.5 ms response time isn't great for fast-action gaming but it's fine for occasional games and for watching movies.

Ultra HD : Iiyama Prolite B28888UHSU

The BS888UHSU is a great way to experience Ultra HD resolution without breaking the bank. It's a 28" TN monitor with narrow viewing angles and lowish contrast, but it makes up for it with high responsiveness and excellent default colours.

For Gamers : LG 24GM77

Responsive, with accurate colours and Motion 240 for a sharper image, the 24GM77 is one of the best gaming monitors on the market. Its price, more reasonable than some of its competitors, is yet another reason to opt for this LG screen. Only the "plasticky" finish detracts from its other great qualities and perhaps goes in favour of its rivals.

Budget Option : Iiyama ProLite E2483HS-B1

With a basic but functional set of connections, decent colour fidelity (although the green is a little off the mark) and surprisingly high contrast for a TN monitor  (1270:1), the Iiyama ProLite E2483HS-B1 is a respectable display that's one of the best-value options out there right now.

Experts & Pros : ViewSonic VP2772

The ViewSonic VP2772 is a worthy successor to the VP2770-LED, offering a wide-gamut Adobe RGB colour space and in-factory calibration. It's an excellent monitor for imaging professionals or anyone interested in working in WQHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels). Viewing angles are excellent, the stand is practical and there's a good range of connections to choose from.

Top Value : Iiyama ProLite XU2390HS

The Iiyama ProLite XU2380HS is an entry-level display that covers the basics. With good image quality and wide viewing angles, it's an excellent choice for office computing, web work and even a spot of graphic design or photo editing. The only downsides are the basic build (no swivel stand, height-adjustment etc.) and the low-quality speakers. Then again, this is a low-cost monitor.
