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.

ASUS got in touch with me the other week and said, "Hey, would you like to see our new monitor?" And I thought, sure. Monitors are cool. Tech is cool.

But this isn't a monitor. It's more like a TV.

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?

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.

I moved a few weeks ago, so I had to break down and re-set up my workspace. When I did, I replaced my dual-display setup with a new 34" ultrawide LG curved display. It's had its quirks, but now I'm not sure I could ever go back. Here's why, and why it's worked so well for me.

A substantial PC upgrade, or even a better workspace, doesn't have to be a huge project that drains your time and energy. If you can order the parts, there are several worthwhile improvements you can make that will pay off big when it's time to work (or play). Here are some of them.

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.
