Whether for leisure or teleworking, if we spend long periods of time in front of our computer (or laptop), the monitor is one of the most important peripherals. One that is too big can cause neck discomfort, one that is too “good” can be a waste of budget and a long list of possibilities.
Quick guide to know everything you need when choosing support for your monitor or television
Although many times we can opt for any alternative that fits our budget, in the case of the monitor it is very important to take into account what uses we are going to give it and take our time. Above all, to avoid a “funnel effect”: that it is not suitable for us or that it does not take advantage of our computer.
Already in ConsumptionClaro we recommend some options for those who like to play on weekends and for those who were looking for a monitor for their laptop. But what if we are looking for a monitor that meets our expectations but does not take our entire budget?
We have compiled some options depending on what we need
Three monitors for teleworking
1. HP 24mq: for the most demanding
For 175 euros, the HP 24mq is a monitor that is positioned as the best option for those who are looking for a hybrid between power and functionality. It is a 24-inch screen that supports 1440p resolutions (2560×1440 pixels, a little longer than 2K) and HDMI and VGA ports.
One of the most striking points of this monitor is the support on which it comes, since it is especially complete: the height and inclination can be adjusted –although if you are interested in buying a support, here is a guide–.
It is a very competent monitor for those who want to use it, mainly for teleworking, but without sacrificing good quality for leisure time.
two. Philips Monitor 243V7QDSB / 00: simple and direct
For 160 euros –130 euros on offer–, the Philips 243V7QDSB / 00 is a simple but reliable monitor. It is an IPS panel with FHD resolution (1920×1080 pixels) with a very sober but attractive design thanks to the fact that it has almost no borders.
One of its most important points is that it has a “blue light” mode, that is, a mode to considerably reduce the brightness without giving up seeing the image. In this way, in the face of long hours of work, it can be a determining aspect.
3. Viewsonic VA2405 – H: good colors at low price
For 137 euros, the Viewsonic VA2405 – H is one of the best options for those users who are looking for a monitor with a particularly beautiful color gamut. It is a FHD resolution screen with HDMI and VGA ports, so in this aspect it meets most of the needs that we may have.
Its panel, being LED technology, offers especially sharp and vivid colors compared to previous models, in addition to having its own ViewMode technology that allows to enhance saturation and give an even more prominent appearance. Also, like the previous one, it has the EyeCare mode to reduce the impact on our eyesight.
Three monitors for leisure
1. BenQ GL2480: power at a good price
For 150 euros, the classic BenQ brand offers the GL2480, a “gaming” monitor that meets all the requirements that are necessary for our leisure time. With an LED panel and 1080p resolution, it is a good alternative for both playing games and watching multimedia content.
The response time is 1 millisecond and its 75 Hz refresh rate makes it especially useful for video games. Even so, it also has a blue light system and even a “reading” system to considerably reduce the brightness and adapt it to the ambient light and, thus, affect your eyesight as little as possible.
two. Samsung C24F396FHR: With curves
For 145 euros, the Samsung C24F396FHR is the cheapest curved monitor, without sacrificing quality. As usual Samsung, the C24F396FHR offers a 24-inch LED panel with a FHD resolution, with a radius of curvature of 1800 millimeters, offering a large field of view.
It is a monitor that, although it can be used without problems for teleworking, gives very good results when playing games or watching multimedia content. This, among other things, is due to a 3000: 1 contrast ratio, which helps display more vivid colors, and compatibility with AMD FreeSync technology.
3. BenQ EL2870U: 4K for less than 300 euros
Now, what if we are looking for a monitor that reaches 4K but does not involve a large outlay? For 279 euros, the BenQ EL2870U is the best alternative for those who want to enjoy the highest resolution.
The BenQ EL2870U is a 28-inch LED panel with a resolution of 3840×2160 pixels (4K) accompanied by an HDR mode, which increases the dynamic range of black and white. This represents a considerable leap in terms of quality compared to previous models.
It also offers a greater number of ports to take advantage of even more the power of this monitor: HDMI 2.0. and DisplayPort. Plus, it features Brightness Intelligence Plus technology for eye strain and glare reduction by sensing ambient lighting and room temperature.
