LCD monitors are the cheapest and the most energy efficient type of display. There are also very similar, so that choosing the appropriate monitor can be a long and unpleasant process. We present you the Top 10 best PC monitors based on general configurations.
Dell UltraSharp U2311H
With a screen size of 23 inches, the Dell monitor comes with a warranty of three years and combines advanced technology with traditional options. Reaction speed is 6 ms, while the dynamic contrast is 10,000:1. Price: $300.
Realistic colors displayed by the 23-inch monitor from Asus are based on the huge dynamic contrast of 50,000:1. The 5 ms response rate is another advantage, but the monitor does not have many options to adjust the position. Price: $210.
Even if it has high energy consumption, the 24-inch BenQ monitor has a very fast response for its VA panel technology - 8 ms - and dynamic contrast of up to 20,000:1. Price: $350.
Gateway FHX2402L bid
The 2 ms response is an important advantage for Gateway FHX2402L bid, but the NA technology does not offer wide viewing angles. This monitor has a dynamic contrast of 12,000:1 and image quality is excellent. Price: $250.
The PVA technology used for the NEC monitor offers wide viewing angles, but also the longest response time in the top 10 - 25 ms. Its dynamic contrast of only 3,000:1 along with the response time, recommends it for office use, not for movies or gaming. Price: $300.
Lenovo ThinkVision L2440p
With an excellent brightness, the Lenovo monitor suffers though due to the old TN panel technology, which is why is not ranked on a top position despite the good image quality displayed. Response: 5 ms and Contrast Ratio: 1,000:1. Price: $308.
Realistic colors and the response time of only 5 ms make from the LG monitor a good choice for many users. Dynamic contrast is 10,000:1, but the TN technology is old and the monitor would have been significantly better with an IPS. Price: $260.
Acer S243HL bmii
With very low power consumption, the monitor from Acer offers few ways to adjust the screen. Acer S243HL bmii has a response time of 2 ms, while the contrast ration is at 8,000:1. Price: $330.
Response time of only 5 ms and the dynamic contrast of 10,000:1 seem advantages for the ViewSonic monitor, but adjustment options are minimal, and the image quality is not really impressive. Price: $245.
Medium specifications and limited adjustment options make the Samsung monitor the least inspired choice of the best monitors available on the market today. Response time is very fast at 2 ms, but the 5,000:1 dynamic contrast is far too low for a price of $400.
