The Best Office Monitors For (Still) Working From Home
This display has slim bezels, a stylish base and a stand that’s got height, swivel, pivot and tilt adjustments alongside good build quality. It’s got three full-size USB ports and two USB-C connections, one of which can power laptops. Some ports are installed on the side, so they’re easier to reach, and you get an audio jack and a security lock slot. It’s all managed by an intuitive on-screen display.
There are only minor issues. You could find better Adobe RGB coverage elsewhere, but you’ll have to pay more. There’s no Thunderbolt support, either.
For the most part, though, the U2720Q is fantastic – it’s got great image quality, a high resolution, loads of features and good design. It’s the best office all-rounder.
Also consider: The U2720Q’s biggest flaws are its missing Adobe RGB and Thunderbolt support. If you want that, consider one of the pricier professional screens we’ve recommended here. If you want to stick with Dell, the UP2720Q (£1,391) fixes those issues, albeit for a higher price.
Resolution: 1,920 x 1,080 | Size: 24in | Syncing: 75Hz AMD FreeSync | Panel type: IPS | Quoted contrast: 1,000:1 | Inputs: 1 x HDMI, 1 x DisplayPort, 1 x VGA
The ViewSonic VX2476 costs £160 right now, often dipping below that price, and it pairs a good mainstream feature set with surprisingly capable image quality.
This is an IPS 1080p panel, for starters, and that’s an improvement over the budget panels of yesteryear – they’d often rely on weaker, cheaper VA or TN hardware. Its Delta E hovers at around the 3 mark, which means you get accurate colors to handle everyday workloads and some light photo editing without issues. The contrast sits way beyond 1,000:1 on these displays, too, so the ViewSonic also delivers impressive depth. Viewing angles are good, too, which adds versatility.
ViewSonic’s screen has HDMI, DisplayPort and VGA inputs, so it connects to a wide variety of devices, and its sub-3kg weight and modest 209mm depth make it easy to manage. It’s even got speakers, and they’re not awful.
