Monitors for computers, video game consoles, and home entertainment centers have come a long way in the last decade. Gone are the days of massive, heavy CRT monitors that were almost as deep as they were wide. Gone are the days of low-resolution picture, screen burn-in (the reason screen savers were invented), and other relics that today’s kids don’t know anything about. Now, we have monitors that offer higher resolution than the eye can actually distinguish, with sizes as big as your desk will fit – and bigger! Gaming monitors, dual and triple monitor setups, multimedia monitors with built-in speakers and other functions – they’re all available with just a few clicks from major online retailers.
Prices have advanced a lot, too. The slow, steady march of technological progress has ensured that prices for monitors, including big, high-quality monitors of HD resolution or better – are more affordable than ever before. They last a long time, are highly responsive, and are perfect for gaming, graphic design, general computer work, video games, movies, and much more.
Modern LED and LCD/plasma TVs can often be used as large-scale monitors for computers, but are not optimized for this purpose. In many cases, you’ll get inferior performance and resolution on a television compared to a genuine computer monitor. It may be subtle, and there are plenty of TVs that can double as monitors – especially “smaller” sub-40 inch or so flat panel and curved TVs that will fit on desks and work surfaces. However, our primary focus here is on computer monitors, so unless it’s recommended by Reddit that a particular TV be included or considered as a computer monitor, it probably won’t be included on our list.
All this progress, and the blending of TVs and monitors, however, can leave even plugged-in, tech-literate consumers with a dizzying array of choices, both in-store and online. This can be an overwhelming prospect. How do you know where to begin, or what features really matter when you’re looking at buying a monitor? What interfaces do you need? Is 4K or 8K necessary for you? These are all good questions, which we intend to answer. We’ve pulled together a comprehensive guide to the top Reddit monitor recommendations, culled from thousands of threads across Reddit. We’ve also put together a brief buying guide, which covers the key specifications you’ll want to look at when evaluating these Reddit monitor recommendations against your budget and intended use for the monitor(s). Let’s dive right in by looking first at the important specifications and criteria to consider when comparing monitors.
When you’re looking to buy a computer monitor or monitor of any kind, there are some basic aspects and specifications that matter a lot more than others. Below, we highlight the 10 different aspects of monitors that you should pay particular attention to when you’re doing your comparison shopping, as they dictate a lot of the performance (not to mention price points) that you’ll find.Size
Obviously, one of the most visible aspects of any monitor or display is its size. This dimension is usually expressed in inches, and measured diagonally across the display.Display Resolution
The resolution is a representation of the pixel density – literally, the number of lines and columns of pixels that make up the display. The higher the resolution, the more clear, realistic, and crisp the picture will look, especially as you get into larger monitor sizes.
|Basic HD||1280 x 720 (720p)|
|Full HD||1920 x 1080 (1080p)|
|Quad HD||2560 x 1440 (1440p)|
|Ultra HD/4K||3840 x 2160 (2160p)|
|Cinema 4K||4096 x 2160 (2160p)|
|Full Ultra HD/8K||7680 x 4320 (4320p)|
Full HD is the most common minimum resolution you’ll find on monitors today. Quad HD is currently the most popular for gaming – considered the “sweet spot”, because systems are not yet capable of running higher 4K resolutions at the kind of frame rates that gamers demand. The “4K” and “8K” names and relationships reference to the common Full HD format – 4K is the equivalent of 4 HD resolution displays (2 x 2), and 8K the equivalent of 16 HD resolution displays (4 x 4), or 4, 4K displays (2 x 2).Aspect Ratio
This is the ratio of the width to the height of the screen. Old-style monitors and TVs (“square”) used 4:3 aspect ratios, whereas most HD and higher resolution displays today use the standard 16:9 aspect ratio. Some variation does exist, and 16:10 or 21:9, and 32:9, or other variations may be found in more exotic or purpose-built displays.Refresh Rate
The refresh rate is the actual rate at which the picture on the screen updates. The old standard was 60 Hz (60 times per second), but these days, higher-end displays are going for at least 100 Hz or higher, to ensure high-fidelity picture and more frequent updates to avoid screen tearing (when the data changes faster than the update rate of the display). For any larger monitor (typically above the laptop standard of 17 inches or so) intended for computer or video game console use, 100 Hz or higher refresh rate is recommended.TN, VA, IPS/PLS, OLED
The actual display panel technology can make a big difference in the performance of your monitor. Without getting into the technical weeds, LCD displays typically offer TN (twisted nematic), VA (vertical alignment), or IPS (in-plane switching) panel technology, which are progressively better as you go through the list. PLS (plane-line switching) is sometimes mentioned instead of IPS, as they are functionally equivalent. IPS is considered the gold standard in LCD display panel technology today. OLED is considered a higher-quality display technology, using complex LEDs instead of LCDs for the display. However, it does have drawbacks, including limited refresh rates, higher costs, and significant power draw, meaning there’s an active debate on the IPS LCD vs. OLED front in terms of what offers the better all-around monitor in the current market.Contrast, Brightness, Viewing Angle, and Response Time
There are many metrics that are often listed as part of the specifications for a given monitor, television, or display. These can include contrast ratios, brightness, viewing angle, response time, and more. In most cases, there aren’t generally-agreed upon standards or tests on which these metrics are based, so take them with a grain of salt. High contrast, good brightness, fast response time, etc. all good things, but if you’re not comparing apples to apples, don’t necessarily let these factors be the deciders when you’re choosing a computer monitor.FreeSync/G-Sync
Many computer monitors on the market today, especially the higher-end options, have attempted to address screen tearing (see Refresh Rate above for more). G-Sync is nVidia’s proprietary technology, which requires a chip installed in the monitor, along with a G-Sync-enabled video card in the computer in order to realize the benefits of, effectively, an adaptive refresh rate technology. FreeSync is effectively open source, and runs on the video card, utilizing the DisplayPort standard to manage the adaptive refresh rate of the display. In general, most experts agree G-Sync offers better overall performance than FreeSync, but both are a step up from nothing, or the standard V-Sync option (which can be very computer-intensive for sub-par results). G-Sync monitors tend to be more expensive, as they have the G-Sync module/chip inside the monitor, an added cost.Inputs
You’ll want to be sure that whatever Reddit monitor recommendations you may follow, that your chosen monitor has sufficient inputs of the quantity and standard to match your system outputs. HDMI is fairly standard, though many newer monitors are also available with DisplayPort, both of which can provide video and audio data. USB-C connections can also provide power, though are less common in fixed monitors than they are with mobile devices like laptops. The old standard VGA cable has long gone out of style, but some monitors still include the interface to be compatible with older/legacy systems. DVI is, like VGA, a video-only standard, but it offers much higher resolutions and refresh rates than VGA.
In almost all cases, DisplayPort provides the highest resolution and refresh rate, followed by HDMI, then DVI. Be sure to look for HDMI 2.0 (as opposed to the earlier 1.4 standard) as it offers superior data bandwidth and higher frame rates. DisplayPort 1.2 through the latest 1.4 can all support at least 4K at 60fps.Mounting and Multi-Monitor Considerations
If you plan to mount your monitor or use it as part of a multi-monitor display, you’ll want to ensure whatever monitor Reddit recommends will work with your chosen mounting hardware. At the same time, when using multiple monitors side-by-side to achieve larger displays, it’s often important to look for a thin bezel so that you minimize “dead space” in the display/between the screens. Curved monitors, like curved TVs, can often be a good alternative if you’re simply looking for real estate/size rather than intentionally having multiple displays to manage different programs simultaneously. Running dual monitors, a Reddit recommendation for many users, also requires a video card capable of supporting dual monitors or greater, so be sure your system matches up with your chosen display plans, too.Warranties and Manufacturer Reputation
Of course, as with any technology purchase, you’ll want to also look at what warranties or guarantees on the quality of the product are offered by the manufacturer or seller, and the reputation of the manufacturer. All things being equal, a brand that’s better-known, has better reviews, and offers a lengthier and/or more comprehensive warranty is usually a better choice.
As monitors are primarily meant to be connected to computers and gaming consoles, and not, in and of themselves, to be used as televisions, you’ll often find the best posts and information in sub-Reddits focused on computing and gaming. We used the following sub-Reddits as primary sources for our monitor research and recommendations, as well as sources of comments and feedback that we’ve included with each entry in our list.
You may also find some advice in more specialized sub-Reddits depending on your intended use or interests. Obviously, video editing, graphic design, 3D rendering, industrial design, photo editing, and other tasks, when conducted for professional/commercial purposes, may have more specific requirements and call for higher-quality or specialized equipment. Therefore, sub-Reddits dedicated to those pursuits and professions may offer more specific advice on monitors Reddit specifically recommends for those pursuits.
Our above sub-Reddits are more geared toward general audiences. These are great places to look if you want to explore the topic further after reviewing our guide. Many have active contributors and vibrant communities of commenters and moderators, who will be happy to lend their expertise to your search for the perfect monitor. As always, just be sure you read the sub-Reddit’s rules before you start posting. That way, you’ll have the best chance of getting helpful advice and answers to any questions you may have.
As with all of our review articles, we’ve listed the top Reddit monitors below in alphabetical order by manufacturer name, and don’t intend to imply one is better than the other or vice versa based on their ranking order. Rather, this list contains the best computer and game console monitors, across all categories – budget, 4K monitors, large size, curved monitors, multi-display monitors, LCDs, OLEDs, and so on. What might be the “ideal” choice for some people may not be for the other. But every monitor on our list would make a great purchase depending on your particular needs, budget, and intended uses.
However, as with every category of product or service we review, we’ve selected one entry on the list to receive our “Redditor’s Top Choice” award, based on positive feedback and comments, value, general recommendations on Reddit, and other factors. Be sure to look for it in the list below!
As a standard disclaimer, all specifications, images, and other information are accurate as of the time of publication, and subject to change based on retailer and manufacturer updates. Always be sure to review the exact specifications and options listed for the model you are considering before confirming your purchase.
Now, let’s take a look at the top Reddit monitors recommended by the numerous sub-Reddits related to monitors, gaming, PCs, and technology.
The Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ is effectively Asus’ entry into the top-tier gaming monitor space, on par with the above Acer Predator X27. It offers full UltraHD 4K resolution, comparable refresh rate, color, HDR, and G-Sync specs, and a comparable warranty. Inputs utilize the same high-end standards (DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0). By all the basic specifications, the X27 and the ROG Swift PG27UG are quite comparable. In terms of gaming monitors Reddit recommends, the Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ tends to be more highly-recommended than the Acer Predator X27, largely due to Asus’ gaming and quality control reputation.
Of course, just like the X27, the PG27UQ has high-end technology packed inside, and for that, you’re going to pay a high price. This is definitely not a budget monitor, but it is pretty much one of the best gaming-focused monitors on the market today. If you can score one on sale for 20-25% off, and your system has the power to make use of the high-end features, then it’s well worth the investment. It may be overkill otherwise, like the X27, but there’s no denying it’s a high-quality, well-built monitor. Like the X27, it’s hard to beat with the current offerings on the market. It also has a stylish look and highly adjustable stand, along with a relatively small bezel. Though, if you’re going to put two of these side by side, it’s going to put quite a dent in your wallet, but our hats off to you!
|Color and HDR:||99% Adobe RGB, HDR1000|
|Input(s):||DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0, USB 3.0 x 3|
|Warranty:||3 Year Limited Warranty|
|Height:||15” (17.2” to 21.9” with Stand)|
|Width:||25” (25” with Stand)|
|Depth:||3.7” (10.6” with Stand)|
Acer is a well-known, quality brand in computer monitors, and their latest series, the Predator, is no exception. While they offer incredibly high-quality resolution, advanced color, high refresh rates, and crisp, IPS panel technology, the real draw for the Acer Predator X27 is the G-Sync technology from nVidia. As a gaming monitor, Reddit comments point out that it doesn’t get much better than this. In particular, the quantum dot color technology and 10-bit color provides a much richer and more dynamic range, which is especially evident in top-tier video game titles.
At the same time, there are several models and variations within each size of the Acer Predator series. Depending on how much you can afford or want to spend, there are variations on the core design that are a bit more wallet-friendly, due mostly to earlier-generation G-Sync, lesser color, somewhat slower pixel response time, and similar. We’ve chosen to include this particular model, however, as there is fairly universal agreement among comments regarding monitors on Reddit (and in other, third-party evaluations) that this model is among the top gaming monitors available today, and well worth the price.
|Model Number:||X27 BMIPHZX|
|Sync Technology:||G-Sync Ultimate|
|Color and HDR:||99% Adobe RGB/HDR1000|
|Input(s):||DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0, USB 3.0 x 4|
|Warranty:||3 Year Limited Warranty|
|Height:||14.8” (22.7” w/Stand)|
|Width:||24.8” (24.8” w/Stand)|
|Depth:||3.4” (14.8” w/Stand)|
|Weight:||10.5 lbs (27.1 lbs w/Stand)|
If the price tag on the above Acer Predator X27 has got you down, consider the X34 instead. It’s larger, at 34”, and curved, with a thin bezel, for more viewable area and more immersive gaming and video experiences. At the same time, its MSRP is only half of the X27, with deals and sales far more frequent and available than on the X27. The main differences are that this monitor simply isn’t as packed full with the absolute latest, cutting-edge tech. It’s very good, and high-end, but not quite as high-en as the X27. It doesn’t run in 4K 144 Hz, but rather Ultrawide Quad HD (QHD), effectively a wider version of 1440p. The refresh rate is 100 Hz, or up to 120 Hz with overclocking. It doesn’t support HDR, either.
With that said, many who are searching for a good gaming monitor or just an all-around monitor for productivity and different uses point out that 1440p is really the sweet spot these days. 4K gaming at 144 Hz requires a ridiculously powerful, cutting-edge gaming rig to utilize effectively. 100-120 Hz Ultrawide QHD/1440p is much more attainable with reliable high frame rates on a much wider variety of gaming rigs – including those that aren’t brand-spanking new. It’s still an investment over a traditional monitor from 5-10 years ago, of course, but it’s in the price range of most of the monitors on our list, rather than the stratospheric pricing of the X27.
|Model Number:||X34 PBMIPHZX|
|Color and HDR:||100% sRGB, No HDR|
|Input(s):||DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 1.4, USB 3.0 x 4|
|Warranty:||3 Year Limited Warranty|
|Height:||14.5” (22.5” with Stand)|
|Width:||32.2” (32.2” with Stand)|
|Depth:||4.9” (11.8” with Stand)|
|Weight:||14.9 lbs (21.4 lbs with Stand)|
For consumers who would love the PG27UQ, but can’t afford it or can’t fathom spending so much on a monitor, the more-affordable Asus ROG Swift PG279QZ 27” may be the perfect solution. Though not a 4K monitor (rather, it’s 1440p), for many consumers, this is not a problem. 1440p is considered the best resolution for most people for gaming, since 4K can really bottleneck the CPU, and isn’t supported on many GPUs (other than the top-of-the-line latest). Not only does the PG279QZ deliver 144 Hz, it’s actually overclockable to 165 Hz. While there’s no HDR, and understandably it’s an sRGB color space with overall lower max brightness than the PG27UQ, that’s a minimal compromise for most people when you look at this monitor with a price point less than 1/3 of that of the PG27UQ.
For those worried about screen tearing, the PG279QZ offers the nVidia G-Sync technology, just like its expensive “older brother” mentioned above. The styling and construction are consistent with the Asus ROG line, and quality control is also reported to be quite good, consistent with Asus products. For the majority of gamers or those just looking for an all-around everyday multimedia monitor, Reddit recommends you check out the PG279QZ. If that’s not available in your area, the PG279Q is a suitable alternative – they’re functionally the same on specs, though with a slightly different design – the Z is just an Amazon exclusive version.
|Color and HDR:||100% sRGB, No HDR|
|Input(s):||DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 1.4, USB 3.0 x 2|
|Warranty:||3 Year Limited Warranty|
|Height:||14.3” (17” to 21.7” with Stand)|
|Width:||24.4” (24.4” with Stand)|
|Depth:||2.6” (9.4” with Stand)|
If you’re a creative professional looking for a great 4K monitor, and don’t particularly care about refresh rates or G-Sync for gaming purposes, then the BenQ DesignVue PD3200U should be right up your alley. It’s a great all-around monitor, but it’s specifically designed for creativity – graphic design, photography, animation, video editing, and similar tasks. It has a wealth of special features and modes to assist in those creative fields, as well as color certifications and calibrations, great resolution, and a versatile stand to adjust to any work setup. Since it’s not meant as a gaming monitor, the refresh rate is limited to 60 Hz, and there’s no G-Sync or FreeSync. Yet, it’s got full 10-bit color in 4K resolution, a beautiful 32 inch IPS panel, and is incredibly affordable (since it’s not competing with the gaming demographic, and can forego the expensive hardware required for G-Sync and higher refresh rates).
TWhether you’re a creative professional or just looking for an all-around 4K monitor to use on a regular basis at home or the office, the BenQ PD3200U should definitely be on your short list. The company itself isn’t as well-known as some of the others on our list, but they’ve been around for nearly 2 decades. Originally an off-shoot of Acer, they’re a Taiwan-based manufacturer of monitors, projectors, and other tech accessories. They have a full range of monitors, from creative/all-purpose like this one, to specialized gaming monitors that compete with some of the other entries on our list. Quality control can be an issue (similar to with Acer) with several consumer reports of flicker issues or dead pixels. But, on the whole, it’s a very well-reviewed monitor and worthy of consideration, especially at the relatively low price point for 4K resolution.
|Color and HDR:||100% sRGB, Rec.709|
|Input(s):||HDMI 2.0 x 2, DisplayPort 1.2, miniDisplayPort 1.2, USB 3.0 x 4|
|Warranty:||3 Year Limited Warranty|
|Height:||17.2” (19.3” to 25.2” with Stand)|
|Width:||29.1” (29.1” with Stand)|
|Depth:||2.6” (8.4” with Stand)|
|Weight:||18.8 lbs (27.6 lbs with Stand)|
Not everyone is into huge monitors – some people prefer more manageable sizes, especially if you’re going to end up putting two side-by-side. Therefore, we had to include at least one more “reasonably” sized monitor in our list based on the top Reddit monitor recommendations. The Dell UltraSharp U2415 is a 24” monitor that uses the 16:10 aspect ratio and WUXGA resolution standard – essentially, 1080p with some extra height. As an all-around, office, multimedia, or gaming console monitor, this is a great choice, well-reviewed, and priced at a much more “normal” monitor price range – the amount you’d expect to pay for a “normal” sized computer monitor in the last decade.
Of course, you won’t get 1440p or 4K resolution out of this monitor, nor anything above 60 Hz refresh rate. There’s no G-Sync or FreeSync either, but at these resolutions and refresh rates, there’s not as much value to it. If your system doesn’t include a GPU that could utilize those technologies anyway, then there’s no reason to pay more for a monitor that includes them. The Dell UltraSharp U2415 isn’t an entry-level monitor – the quality is quite good, and you’ve got greater than HD resolution, DisplayPort and HDMI inputs, and a decent IPS panel. It’s just not nearly as high-end or advanced as the gaming and creative/design monitors that makeup much of the top of the market these days. But not everyone needs that kind of high-end tech, and if you don’t, then seriously consider the Dell U2415 – your wallet will thank you and you’ll have a great all-purpose monitor.
|Color and HDR:||99% sRGB, No HDR|
|Input(s):||DisplayPort 1.2, miniDisplayPort 1.2, HDMI x 2, USB 3.0 x 5|
|Warranty:||3 Year Limited Warranty|
|Height:||13.8” (15.9” to 20.4” with Stand)|
|Width:||21” (21” with Stand)|
|Depth:||1.8” (8.1” with Stand)|
|Weight:||9.4 lbs (14 lbs with Stand)|
There’s no denying it – the Dell UltraSharp U3219Q is generally targeted at business users. In that role, it performs incredibly well, with excellent color, large size, full 4K resolution, and more. Critically, it’s one of just a few monitors on the market that has a USB-C interface – a must for many who work off of tablets and slim-style laptops since it will charge the device while plugged in. Despite the fact that we started by saying this is a business monitor first and foremost, it’s got HDR and good to excellent performance for movies and most general gaming needs. You can absolutely consider this a mixed-use monitor, and get a ton out of it, whether you’re using it for your business, home office, or just as your all-purpose monitor.
It’s certainly not going to be winning any gaming monitor competitions against units with higher refresh rates and G-Sync or FreeSync. Response time is a bit lower than many of the gaming-focused units on our list, too. At this price point, it’s a comparable all-purpose or business entry to the more gaming-oriented Acer Predator X34 or the smaller Asus ROG Swift PG279QZ 27” option. If you’re mostly looking for a gaming monitor, then consider one of those options. If you do a lot with data, spreadsheets, and business – or just like to view movies and web content and have a large good-quality screen – then consider the U3219Q from Dell.
|Color and HDR:||99% sRGB, Rec. 709, 95% DCI-P3, HDR400|
|Input(s):||DisplayPort, HDMI, USB-C, USB 3.0 x 4|
|Warranty:||3 Year Limited Warranty|
|Height:||16.3” (18.5” with Stand)|
|Width:||28.1” (28.1” with Stand)|
|Depth:||1.8” (8.7” with Stand)|
|Weight:||12.8 lbs (20.5 lbs with Stand)|
The LG 34UM69G-B is one of the most positively-reviewed monitors on almost every site and retailer. It’s not top-of-the-line, but it’s no slouch, either. Essentially, it’s a large, widescreen format gaming monitor at 1080p – ultrawide full HD, with FreeSync, 75 Hz refresh rate, reasonable color performance, and a bunch of game-centric features. For gamers who aren’t running $2K graphics cards in their rigs, and are perfectly happy with 1080p gaming at 75 Hz, this monitor has got everything you need. Excellent brightness and a sharp, clear image are among the characteristics that LG is known for, and on those counts, this monitor delivers.
While the 34UM69G-B has a USB-C interface (in addition to DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 1.4), it has extremely limited power delivery owing to the overall low power draw of the monitor. You can certainly use the USB-C connection for video out from your laptop, tablets, and similar, but it likely won’t keep the device fully charged. A phone should have no problem, but higher-draw devices like MacBooks and other laptop/tablets will either slowly drain or fully drain over time. After all, it’s designed really as a budget yet high-quality gaming monitor, and most people aren’t gaming on slim-style laptops or tablets (at least not without being plugged into external power). This is pretty much as good as monitors get at this price range, in the sub-1440p category.
|Color and HDR:||99% sRGB|
|Input(s):||DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 1.4, USB-C (DisplayPort Alternate, Limited Power Delivery)|
|Warranty:||1 Year Limited Warranty|
|Height:||14.6” (18.3” with Stand)|
|Width:||32.6” (32.6” with Stand)|
|Depth:||1.6” (11” with Stand)|
|Weight:||14.1 lbs (18.7 lbs with Stand)|
The Samsung C27HG70 27” monitor is a curved, gaming-focused monitor that offers the “gaming sweet spot” resolution of QuadHD 1440p. In terms of price, it’s somewhat lower than the other comparable 1440p monitor on our list (the Asus ROG Swift PG279QZ). That’s because the Samsung C27HG70 uses a VA-type panel instead of an IPS-type. This is a lower-cost option, that allows good refresh rates and fairly good color, but has a lot more distortion of color and image properties at extreme viewing angles. This is paired with Samsung’s QLED quantum dot technology to offer fairly good color coverage, especially given it’s a VA panel.
In terms of gaming performance, it easily supports a native 120 Hz refresh rate via the DisplayPort connection, with overclocking to 144 Hz. It uses the AMD FreeSync 2 anti-screen tearing technology, which now can be paired with both AMD-based GPUs and rival nVidia systems that support G-Sync. There are also a lot of bells and whistles designed specifically for gaming and gamers, most of which are easily accessible from the onscreen display. There’s even a handy mic/audio input and headphones/audio out with the semi-standard USB hub to provide you with a one-stop desktop solution for all your peripherals, so you can get organized and stay focused on gaming. Obviously, it works great for other purposes aside from gaming as well, including movies/media and general purpose uses.
|Panel Type:||VA with QLED|
|Sync Technology:||FreeSync 2|

This list only scratches the surface of the sheer number of monitors that are out there. One of the best ways to utilize Reddit for monitors and buying advice is if you can’t decide between two or more variations or comparable monitors. There are always users out there ready to provide you with feedback on their experiences and preferences. Hopefully, our list draws upon the best recommendations for monitors on Reddit, and provides you with a great starting point and cross-section of price points, styles, and resolutions.
It’s important to remember that everyone’s needs and means are different. If you’re looking for a gaming monitor and have an unlimited budget, there are some great choices available. For multi-purpose monitors and general or mixed-use monitors, there are also some great choices, typically at much lower price points. Always be sure to know what your intended use is before you comparison shop – as you can see, there’s such a huge variation in price ranges anymore depending on the features you need that it’s very easy to over spend or under spend if you’re not clear on your use case and your system hardware.
With all of that being said, for each of the above monitors, there are typically many variations available from their manufacturers. If you need a monitor with G-Sync, or prefer an ultrawide to a 16:9, even if not included in our list, there’s probably a version or product available to meet those needs. These reviews and the feedback and comments on monitors Reddit experts have provided are just a starting point to help you hone in on your dream monitor or monitors. Hopefully, you’ll find an option you love, at a price that you can afford.
