They may not have been on your wish list until recently, but in the last few months monitors have definitely moved up the ranks when it comes to much-needed and desirable tech.

As you’re here, you may be well clued-up on the benefits of having a good monitor. For those that need a little convincing, or just a reminder of why finding the best monitor for you is a seriously good idea, here’s a few points.

You’ll be hearing and reading about it everywhere; working from home is finally being accepted in the corporate world. Some of you may have already uncovered the uncomfortable truth that staring down at a laptop for seven hours a day isn’t the most back-friendly pastime – this is where a computer monitor can help (massively). Guidelines suggest we are eye-level with our screens and connecting your laptop up to a monitor makes this much easier.


More than supporting a healthy posture however, with 2020’s top monitors you’ll be able to; see your colleagues in crystal-clear definition for your millions of daily video calls, work on multiple documents at once, see and edit designs in immense detail and much more.

Monitors aren’t all work and no play though. Are you a big fan of films? Well, these display heroes can upgrade your at-home movie nights by offering a larger screen than your laptop and a more agile movie partner than a mounted TV set-up. Get that Lord of the Rings marathon scheduled in, ASAP.

There’s even more fun to be had if you love gaming and want the most immersive experience possible; if this rings true for you, than we’d recommend checking out the ultra-wide and curved monitor options we’ve shortlisted below.
