Acer Nitro XZ272U review: All you need for PC gaming

Acer's XZ272U is a 27-inch QHD monitor that's likely to please a great audience, and while it has a couple drawbacks, none of them are deal-breakers at $300.

HP 34f ultrawide monitor review: Premium for less

Large, curved screens have been a feature of high-end displays, but HP's 34f proves you can get a premium experience at an affordable price. This monitor is a great option for shoppers looking for a vibrant screen for work or home use.

Razer Raptor 27 monitor review: Making monitors fun again

Razer's first attempt at a gaming monitor is ambitious. With a unique cable management system, high-end aluminum materials, and excellent image quality, the Razer Raptor 27 definitely lives up to the company's reputation. But at $699, it's not cheap, either.

HP 27f 4K monitor review: Crisp images without the niceties

These days, 4K monitors keep getting more affordable, but some make that possible via significant compromises. The 2019 refresh of the HP 27f 4K offers some decent image quality to back up its resolution, but it's missing a few key features that hold it back from greatness.

Dell 75 4K Interactive Touch Monitor C7520QT hands-on review

At $6,000, the Dell 75 4K Interactive Touch Monitor is an expensive display that might not be for everyone, but it will replace the boring whiteboard in your office and change your meetings.

BenQ PD3220U monitor review

Most photographers and videographers still use MacBooks, but even expensive 4K monitors don’t always match the colors of those laptop screens. The BenQ PD3220U is a monitor specifically made to solve that problem. But can that possibly be worth its $1,200 price tag?
samsung space monitor review feat

Samsung Space Monitor (SR75) review

High-concept monitors can sometimes over-complicate things. But at CES 2019, we checked out one that fixes the problem it attempts to solve – your cluttered desk. With a dual-hinge arm, the Samsung Space Monitor can stand straight up as if mounted to a wall.
viewsonic xg240r gaming monitor review feat

ViewSonic XG240R gaming monitor review

Gaming monitors can be quite expensive, but the ViewSonic XG240R is an exception. Priced at $273, it takes premium features like RGB lighting, a fast 144Hz refresh rate, and FreeSync support and packs it into an affordable package.
acer predator xb3 review gaming monitor feat

Acer Predator XB3 review

The $1,300 Predator XB3 isn’t for the faint of heart. But if you have a system that can push over 100 frames per second at 4K screen resolution, this monster of a monitor might be the perfect match for your overpowered gaming rig. More than that, it’s an investment in the future of PC gaming power.
HP Omen X Emperium 65 review

HP Omen X Emperium 65 review

Gaming monitors keep getting bigger, but the 65-inch Omen X Emperium takes it to another level. In fact, this $5,000 display is as close to a gaming television as we’ve ever seen. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have the picture quality chops to compete with the Samsungs and LGs of the world.
Alienware 55 review

Alienware 55 OLED monitor hands-on review

OLED has long alluded gaming monitors. But no longer. The Alienware 55 OLED Monitor matches the incredible visuals of OLED with variable refresh rates up to 120Hz. The best part? It’s not just a concept -- it’s a real product coming to a living room near you.

Razer Raptor 27 hands-on review

Razer’s showed its gaming monitor, the Raptor 27, at CES 2019. It’s at tried-and-true Razer product. Made of aluminum and lit with Chroma RGB LEDs, it’s everything a Razer fan would want. Beyond that, the Raptor 27 has a couple of interesting tricks up its sleeve, including a unique cable management system.

Dell 27 USB-C Ultrathin Monitor (S2719DC) review

Ultrawide and 4K might be the buzzwords in monitors right now, but the Dell 27 USB-C Ultrathin monitor manages to be more exciting by just nailing the basics. Not only is this monitor super-thin, it has fantastic image quality to boot.
Alienware AW341BDW Utrawide Gaming Monitor

Alienware AW3418DW Curved Gaming Monitor review

Don’t underestimate the understated appeal of Alienware’s 34-inch curved ultrawide gaming monitor. Although this monitor doesn’t pack aggressive gaming aesthetics, it’s refined looks and balanced performance makes it a winner. The curved 34-inch panel, WQHD resolution display, and fast refresh rates will keep gamers happy.

LG 34WK95U-W ultrawide monitor review

Want a 34-inch ultrawide? You have many options from Samsung, Dell, and HP. All of them are good. The LG 34WK95U-W beats them all, but there’s a big catch. Our LG 34WK95U-W examples the image quality of this top-tier monitor to help you decide if it’s worth the price.
BenQ EL2870U review

BenQ EL2870U 4K monitor review

4K and HDR are some of the big-ticket specifications everyone wants to own. But can they be done for cheap? This $449 BenQ monitor attempts to do just that, but it comes with a couple of important compromises in image quality, and as our BenQ EL2870U review finds, that might not be worth the sacrifice.
dell ultrasharp 49 review inch monitor u4919dw 30008 feat

Dell Ultrasharp 49 review

Samsung’s ultrawide CHG90 opened the door for massive monitors last year, and now Dell is stepping through that door with its own gigantic screen. Dell’s Ultrasharp 49 looks similar to the Samsung at a glance, but it’s for a different audience. Our Ultrasharp 49 review breaks down the differences.
Samsung CHG90 Ultrawide Monitor review

Samsung CHG90 ultrawide monitor review

When it comes to gaming monitors, sometimes wide just isn’t wide enough. Samsung has taken that to a new max with its 49-inch gaming monitor, the CHG90. With quantum dot technology, a 144Hz refresh rate, and ungodly amounts of screen real estate, it just might be the most impressive gaming monitor ever made.

Samsung CF791 ultrawide curved gaming monitor review

With features like quantum dots, a massive 1440p display, and a deep curve, the Samsung CF791 aims to impress. Getting a price cut down to $750, this ultrawide monitor is an even sweeter deal. But even with a discount, it's an expensive monitor to invest in. Is it really worth it?
Dell P2715Q front angle

Dell P2715Q review

Dell's P2715Q was its first real effort at crafting a modern 4K display and it worked wonders. We thought it looked fantastic when it was first released and it still looks good today. The drab bezels and frame didn't look great at launch and they haven't aged well, but in the competitive 4K space, this monitor still holds up.
Ben-Q EX3501R monitor

BenQ EX3501R ultrawide monitor review

BenQ is known for shipping excellent displays, and that’s no different with this curved, ultrawide monster of a monitor. The hidden surprise? Its implementation of HDR, 100Hz refresh rate, and even FreeSync support. That’s right -- the EX3501R is a monitor that works as well for games as it does for work.

Our LG 34UC89G review shows just how hard it is to balance features in a gaming monitor, as LG falls prey to a common trap.
