I go way back in the good old days of technology what back then existed were CRT monitors,you know those weirdly shaped monitors that had a hard thick display and took up every inch of space on your desk. Monitors back then mine as well been equivalent to the old floor model TV's (I'm really showing my age,but I digress), I mean they were just huge and extremely heavy in weight. Heavy because those monitors of yesteryear used CRT tubes to generate images,ouch.
Thankfully PC monitors have come a very long way,most taking on an Tony Stark-ish futuristic appeal. They are a lot thinner,brighter, and they run 4K resolution and counting. The thing is every year the technology with monitors get more innovative, its pretty tough to say who has the latest and greatest when there's a manufacturer unveiling a new monitor that is bigger,brighter and better than the ones that was released the previous year.
Every PC monitor manufacturer seem to dick joust for who has the baddest in display technology,its rather tough to choose which one you should purchase. To make things somewhat easy for you tech consumers looking to buy the latest in visual high tech,I came up with "Top Five" monitors in no particular order you should purchase. Provided that for some of these monitors you have money to splurge.
Dell UltraSharp U2412M
A few years back when UltraSharp U2412M monitor was first introduced to the market by Dell, it was then sort after by a lot of PC power users whether it was being used for gaming or business applications. With a few years under its belt,the UltraSharp U2412M believe it or not is still a widely popular. The monitor is not 4K but still has a 1,920 x 1,200 resolution at a dirt cheap price. There is no HDMI port present within this monitor,but thank god for HDMI-to-DVI adapters.
Price Point: $270
Now from here on out we're venturing into 4K territory of monitors starting with this sexy curve (21:9) ultra widescreen 34-inch display, the LG 34UC97. This one of the few monitors that you can place on any desk and it will not compromise any real estate ,mainly because as mentioned before it has an ultra widescreen,very thin and light in weight. It has QHD technology with 3,440 x 1,440 4K resolution which of course adds up to very sharp quality images on the display.
Price Point: $949
Dell UltraSharp U3451W
Dell known for making pretty decent monitors but not known for going all out with its design,bland and plain at best. The UltraSharp U3451W dismisses that reputation with its version of the ultra widescreen 21:9 curved display,with a very impressive ergonomic VES stand. Just for the sake of adding more information,the UltraSharp curve display also carries a 3,440 x 1,440 resolution and yes its 4K and very expensive.
Price Point: $899.99
Asus ROG Swift PG278Q
Whats "Top Five" listing of monitors without having one made specially for gaming, I got your covered with the Asus ROG Swift. This 27-inch display carries a crisp 2560 x 1440 visual combines with a speedy 144Hz refresh rate. All made possible with NVIDIA G-SYNC technology. For those seeking answers to what G-SYNC technology is its NVIDIA own technology primary function is to eliminate screen tearing.
Price Point: $799
The Acer S277HK has a very odd yet unique design with an extremely thin bezel is what gives it so much appeal. Out of all the 4K monitors on this list, the S277HK is probably the most reasonably priced. Speaking of which,for the price of $577 you get an Ultra-High-Definition display based on in-plane switching (IPS) panel technology. The adjustable stand is rather limited,but that does not take away from overall impeccable design and awesome visual technology.
Price Point: $577
