This FHD monitor from Dell checks all the major boxes of a quality desktop monitor, and it’s incredibly cheap. If you just want a solid monitor for daily tasks like Word documents, checking your email, and watching YouTube, this is a fantastic option. It runs at 1080p, so as long as you aren’t streaming 4K you’ll be fine. It has a surprisingly high refresh rate of 75Hz, so high speed clips of sports games or action movies will look crisp and clear. Combine that with a 5ms response time and you’ll notice a general fluidity of movement between your mouse and the screen. Everything you do will feel quick and responsive.

Its most noticeable feature is the very small bezel size, meaning you get the maximum screen real estate without sacrificing space on your desk. The screen is responsive and snappy with a 5ms response time and a 75Hz refresh rate. It even has AMD FreeSync, a technology usually saved for gaming monitors that syncs your graphics card with your display. It has a variety of different screen input options, including HDMI, D-Sub, and DisplayPort. It even has a headphone out jack so you can control the sound from all of the devices you have connected with one easy cable.

Do you ever feel like your screen is a little cramped? Maybe you have two windows open but you need to look at a third one, and there just isn’t enough space for it. Your options are getting another monitor, or swapping over to a widescreen one. There are a lot of advantages to widescreen displays like this 29-inch LG. For instance, you won’t have an annoying break in your display where the bezels line up. This LG has a lot of fantastic features besides the screen size. It has an impressive refresh rate of 100Hz, so every mouse movement you make will be snappy and responsive on screen. It also has the ability to display 99% of the sRGB color gamut and can run HDR10, so you’ll have a wide breadth of gorgeous colors.

If you’re specifically looking for a new gaming monitor, the prices are going to jump up a bit. Thankfully there are options like this LG UltraGear, a staple in affordable gaming monitors. It has all the standard features you could want from a new gaming display. It runs at 1440p, so anything short of 4K will look its best. It normally has a 5ms response time, but with Motion Blur Reduction mode you can get that down to 1ms. It has a refresh rate of 120Hz, so you won’t miss a beat during fast multiplayer games.

A Samsung Odyssey G7 monitor on a desk.

The Odyssey series from Samsung is a classic run of gorgeous gaming monitors, with some truly incredible standouts (just look down a few entries). The G7 is a fantastic option because it knocks all the standard features out of the park. The most obvious is the resolution. The G7 is the first 4K monitor on this list. If you have a gaming PC powerful enough to run 4K, everything you run through this monitor will be gorgeous. It has a stunning refresh rate of 144Hz, so you can max out the frame rate on 4K games for the smoothest action you’ve ever experienced. Did we mention it’s curved? You’ll get an amazing and immersive experience out of this fantastic display.

34-inch Alienware Curved OLED Gaming Monitor — $1,000, was $1,100

Curved Alienware gaming monitor playing Witcher 3.

If the number of pixels isn’t quite as important to you as the quality of the pixels themselves, you’ll want to check out this Alienware gaming monitor. It runs at 1440p, so it’s not quite 4K, but it has OLED pixels. That means each pixel is self-lit and can turn itself off when it needs to display pitch black. You’ll get unparalleled contrast between bright colors and dark blacks, even when they’re on screen at the same time. It’s also curved, so you’ll get sucked right into whatever game you’re playing — not to mention it will feel better on your neck and eyes. It has an astonishing 0.1ms response time, about the best you can ask for, and supports over a billion colors. This is a top-tier gaming  monitor for sure.

Apple Studio Display — $1,300, was $1,599

The Mac Studio and Studio Display at Apple's Peek Performance event.

Apple has carved out its specific niche in the computing world, if “niche” is the right word for perhaps the most famous company on the planet. Apple displays like this Apple Studio are particularly loved by creative professionals, such as designers, video editors and artists. This display uses the same technology that makes your iPhone look so clear and crisp: Retina display. This one is 5K, meaning pretty much anything you look at will show up in stunning clarity. It has a 12MP webcam built into it, so your face will look fantastic in FaceTime and Zoom meetings. If you’re worried about inputs, you can take a breath; Apple has strayed away from just Thunderbolt ports and added three USB-C ports.

49-inch Odyssey Neo G9 Quantum Mini-LED Gaming Monitor — $1,700, was $2,300

If you won’t settle for anything but the best, you’ll need the Samsung G9. It’s a behemoth of a gaming monitor, measuring 49-inches diagonally. It’s curved of course, and it needs to be. You’ll have to swivel your head to the left to check your inventory items, then swivel it to the right to check your health. But that’s all in the name of immersion, and the specs are there to back that up. The G9 runs at 1440p with an astonishing 240Hz refresh rate. It has Quantum Mini-LEDs, meaning it can display more colors than exist in the sRGB color gamut (and 92% of the Adobe RGB color gamut). It’s a beast of a machine, but sometimes you need to treat yourself.
