As panel technology has improved, larger and better displays have become increasingly affordable for home and business users. And while there's still a place for low cost screens limited to just HD output - it wasn't long ago when HD was the benchmark - the ability to display 4K and HDR (high dynamic range) content is becoming increasingly important to many users. That's where the BenQ EW3270U display fits in. It's a 4K and HDR capable screen that's good for business, gaming and catching up on the latest movies and TV shows.
My current workstation set up has a 13-inch MacBook Pro perched on a stand adjacent to a curved 24-inch display I pic ned up on sale as it was the display stock at a local store. But when LG offered me the chance to review its 38-inch 38WK95C-W monitor I jumped at the opportunity- once I checked that I had enough space on my desk for it. Here's what I thought.
Dear Lifehacker, I recently installed a new graphics card and realised that my monitor, which uses VGA and a DVI-I converter, won't plug into the graphics card's DVI-D port. Instead of buying a DVI-D converter, sounds to me like this is a good opportunity to invest in a new monitor with HDMI. Any recommendations around the $400 mark?
Dual monitors are useful for a lot reasons, even if they don't actually affect productivity. Buying a second monitor is straightforward if you're working from a desktop computer, but it's much trickier with a laptop. YouTuber DIY Perks shows you how to build a second monitor from recycled parts that works great with a laptop.
If you want the ultimate in desktop screen space, you have two options: Get a bigger monitor, or get a 4K monitor. Both options offer you more space to spread out and work, and more pixels to cram your windows into, but two are the focus of many monitor-buyers today: Ultrawide and 4K. Let's see how they stack up, practically.
Super high resolution displays are becoming more common on Windows laptops, but densely packing pixels into a small screen comes with some trade-offs. The resulting image can be great -- text looks smooth and high-quality images are stunning -- but not all applications are designed to run at high resolutions, making for a very mixed experience.
We love multiple monitor workstations, but "Ultrawide" displays, packing resolutions that rival two or three panels side-by-side, are looking better and better these days. After all, having more than one monitor doesn't automatically make you more productive. Here's how these new ultrawide monitors differ from a dual-screen setup, and when you might consider buying one.
