Gaming Monitors

0

Gaming monitors should have a minimum response time 4ms and a refresh rate of at least 60Hz. This means they respond quickly to changing images, providing smooth and crisp images even during fast action scenes.

When choosing a gaming monitor, first consider what type of games you intend to play.

Gaming monitors suitable for action and sports games

For action or sports games, we recommend monitors with a response time of 1-2ms and a refresh rate at least 60Hz, but 100Hz or more is ideal.

Gaming monitors suitable for strategy games

When playing strategy games, the size of the playing area is important - generally, the larger the better. Large playing areas can also achieve high resolutions. For strategy games, we therefore recommend monitors with at least Full HD resolution (1920×1080 pixels), but ideally more.

What else should I consider when choosing a gaming monitor?

Panel Type

  • IPS/S-IPS monitors - excel in natural colours, low power consumption and wide viewing angles. The disadvantage is a higher purchase tag.
  • TN monitors - often characterised by 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 4ms 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 wider viewing angles than TN monitors and are cheaper than IPS monitors.

Screen surface

  • Matte - reflects some light from its surroundings but provides less-saturated colour reproduction.
  • Glossy - provides vibrant and realistic colours but more light is reflected from the surroundings, making the display hard to see in bright sunlight.
  • Anti-glare - a compromise between glossy and matte screens; they are easier to view in direct sunlight than glossy screens but also offer decent colour reproduction.

Connectors

Before buying, make sure the monitor has at the least compatible port with your computer. If not, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE to connect the monitor to it.

Useful Functions and Features

  • Eyestrain-minimising technology - Flicker-free, Flicker-safe, etc.
  • Adjustable height - allows you to adjust the monitor to a comfortable position.
  • VESA mount - allows you to mount the monitor on a bracket.
  • Web camera - useful if you plan to make calls over the Internet.
  • USB Hub - play data from portable drives; connect a keyboard or mouse.

Gaming Monitors

Gaming Monitors

Gaming monitors are designed for PC gaming enthusiasts. Their parameters differ from other monitors, with a key example being faster response times. The faster the response time, the better and smoother the gaming experience.

Gaming monitor resolution

We recommend choosing a monitors with a high resolution. HD+ offers a decent 1600x900-pixel resolution, but for large-screen monitors, you'll experience a sharper image from Full HD models offering a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. You'll also be rewarded by higher quality and more detailed images. If you want to avoid screen reflection, select a matte or anti-glare monitor.

Gaming monitor technologies

TN monitors have the advantage of fast response times for lower prices, but it's IPS monitors that deliver the highest quality image with accurate colours and fantastic viewing angles. At the moment, they represent the pinnacle of gaming displays. Samsung recently introduced PLS technology, which is known for minimal image distortion and great viewing angles.

Gaming monitor manufacturers

The major brands producing gaming monitors include Samsung, Eizo, and BenQ. Our wide range of monitors cater for different requirements and budgets, so you can choose from standard models or top-of-the-range professional models.
