For designers, architects and anyone who work with CAD software (Computer-Aided Design), we recommend Full HD monitors with a diagonal of at least 24".Continue
Important things to consider when choosing a CAD monitor
Screen size and resolution
The larger the diagonal and resolution you choose, the better working conditions the monitor will provide. With higher resolution, you get a more detailed picture, whereas a larger diagonal means a larger workspace.
|Screen Size (1" = 2.54 cm)||24"||25-32"||33" and larger|
|Resolution to ensure adequate image quality||Full HD (1920 × 1080 pixels) or higher||WQHD (2560 × 1440 pixels) or higher||4K (3840 × 2160 pixels) or higher|
1 or 2 monitors
When choosing the size of the monitor, also take into consideration how many monitors you will work with.
- 1 monitor - models with 27" or more provide a sufficiently clear and large workspace.
- 2 or more monitors - to work effectively with multiple simultaneous applications, 24" monitors are sufficient. If you plan to work using multiple monitors, we recommend selecting the same models to avoid differences in colour reproduction.
What else should I look for when selecting a professional monitor?
- IPS / S-IPS monitors - excel in natural colours, low power consumption and wide viewing angles. The disadvantage is a higher purchase price.
- TN monitors - Often characterised by a low response times. Compared with IPS monitors They are cheaper, offer lower-quality colour reproduction and narrower viewing angles. While cheaper TN monitors are the sufficient for less demanding users, models with 4 ms response times are popular with gamers.
- MVA / PVA monitors - in terms of price and picture quality, these are somewhere between IPS / S-IPS and TN monitors. They provide more realistic colour reproduction and viewing angles wider than TN monitors and are cheaper than IPS monitors.
- Matte - reflects light from the surroundings; provides less-saturated colour reproduction.
- Glossy - provides vibrant and realistic colours; conversely, more light is reflected light from the surroundings, so the display can be difficult to view in bright sunlight.
- Anti-glare (glossy display with Antiglare) - a compromise between glossy and matte screens; they are easier to view in direct sunlight than glossy screens but also offer lower quality colour reproduction.
Before buying, make sure the monitor has at the least one same port as your computer. If not, you will not be able to connect the monitor to it.
Useful functions and features
- Technology That minimises eyestrain - Flicker-free, Flicker-safe, etc.
- Adjustable height - allows you to adjust the monitor to a comfortable position.
- USB Hub - play data from portable drives; connect a keyboard or mouse.
- Pivot - allows the screen to rotate horizantally; suitable for office work and reading texts from your computer.
