How to choose a monitor for a PC

Size of the monitor

LCD monitors have dropped considerably in price so it's now well worth getting a large screen size. We feel a 20 to 24 inch size, wide screen, is the best deal when comparing sizes and prices for an LCD monitor currently. With a full HD native resolution of 1920x1080 on the 22" to 24" size monitors you're all set for movies, games, web browsing or whatever!

LED backlight LCD monitor

Samsung monitor

An LED backlight LCD monitor is today recommended by us as preferable to the previous standard of a CCFL backlight LCD monitor. LED backlight LCD monitors are slimmer, lighter, run cooler, use less power and are longer lasting. They also have greater dynamic contrast ratios. As they have become mainstream their prices have dropped in comparison to a CCFL LCD monitor so price is no longer an issue we feel.

Brightness, contrast ratio, response time, LCD panel type

Other specifications we look for are 250 cd/m2 for brightness, 1000:1 for contrast ratio, a 2ms response time for gaming otherwise 5ms is fine. A TN LCD panel type is cheaper than an IPS LCD panel and we feel good enough for the majority of us unless we have specific professional type color display needs. Also an IPS panel generally has a slower response time than a TN panel.

Monitor speakers

Since we believe in selecting external speakers for better sound quality, we don't need to get a monitor with built in speakers. These built in speakers barely add to the cost of a monitor, but they do add some weight.

Monitor connectors

For connectors we recommend getting a monitor that includes an HDMI and a DVI connector. Get a D-Sub or VGA connector if you need to connect your monitor to an older computer that doesn't have an HDMI or DVI connector. A displayport connector, like HDMI carries both sound and video, is nice to have but not yet necessary.

Monitor brands

There is so much competition in this space there are plenty of brands to choose from at great prices. ASUS, ACER, LG, Samsung, ViewSonic come first to mind. Enjoy your large screen display!

Dec 2, 2021: Microsoft’s new Windows prompts try to stop people downloading Chrome - The Verge
“Microsoft has also been making it harder to switch default browsers in Windows 11 and forcing people into using Edge through Windows updates.

Windows 11 Is Making It Absurdly Difficult to Change Browsers - GIZMODO
Don't these people at Microsoft behind this latest move know how to behave, it appears they never grow out of that mindset of cheap anti-competitive tricks, motivated by greed I guess or something else who knows, instead of just trying to do great stuff. Here try this instead Microsoft, create your browser, don't integrate it with Windows, make it available for download, market it like any other product, if it's any good people will use it, if not they won't. Don't force people to use it because you think you can get away with it. Weren't they told something similar by antitrust regulators sometime back, that article references that case, did they forget? - Kamil
