What is the best monitor to meet your needs?
When shopping for a new computer monitor, you might be overwhelmed by all the choices of display type. Don't worry, at Best Buy we can help you make sense of the various kinds of monitors, whether you're looking for a PC monitor or a Mac-compatible monitor.
Monitor display types.
Many monitors use a liquid-crystal, or LCD displays. This type of computer screen produces a quality image and can do so at a competitive price. Light-emitting diode, or LED monitors are LCD monitors, but they use backlighting to produce even brighter, more vibrant images, all while consuming less power in a thinner design than basic LCD computer monitors.
With in-plane switching, IPS monitors take things to the next level with wider viewing angles, more precise colors, and darker blacks than even the best LCD and LED computer monitors. These models are a perfect choice if your work and play finds you editing photos or enjoying video games.
Touchscreen computer monitors.
Another option to think about is monitors sporting touchscreen capability. These are perfect for home entertainment and using a computer with kids. Swipe effortlessly through images, launch programs with the touch of a finger, or enjoy addictive touch-based gaming. If you do decide on a touch-screen monitor, focus on models with stands that can easily be adjusted and that have glass that extends all the way to the edge. Don't forget your screen protectors and cleaning kits to keep your touch-screen monitor clean and protected.
