The monitor of your Apple or PC product is a vital component to a computer, yet not everyone gives the same type of consideration to the quality of monitor as they do to the actual computer when making a purchase. They might just keep the monitor the computer comes with out of convenience, or they’ll stick with their old one since they don’t want to spend the extra money to upgrade.
But for as much time as people spend in front of their computer monitors each day—and for some, depending on work and usage that could be the entire day—it might be time to rethink the value of the monitor.
What kind of monitor you should get, according to PC Mag, depends on factors like what you actually need the monitor for, how much you’re willing to spend, and the type of operating system you’re using. The computer magazine weighed a variety of factors and came up with its list of the top 10 computer monitors currently on the market.
Those monitors included the Dell UltraSharp U3014, the NEC MultiSync EA244WMi, the Acer T232HL, the HP Pavilion 27xi, the Viewsonic VG2437mc-LED, and the Dell UltraSharp U2713HM. With the exception of one, all of these monitors retailed for less than $1,000, meaning you don’t have to spend a lot of money in order to get a high quality computer monitor.
While the PC Mag article didn’t detail Apple monitors, an article in Lifehacker listed the Apple Thunderbolt 27″ Display among its top 5 computer monitors. What’s noteworthy about the pick is that, among the monitors it selected, it was chosen as the best overall computer monitor in a poll that the website conducted of its readers.
Of course, with the Consumer Electronics Show currently underway in Las Vegas, there will likely be a host of new computer monitors unveiled in 2014 that could potentially outperform those already on the market. The annual conference is always packed full of new, innovative products and great ideas, and is definitely something to keep an eye on.
