What sort of monitor should I get?

The first decision is size. Typical LCD/LED monitors range from 21.5″ up to 32″ so desk space and preference are the main consideration.

The next question is what will it be used for?
The standard resolution is 1920 x 1080 (FHD) and this is fine for standard uses such as internet, email, videos and office work. Higher resolutions up to 3840 x 2160 (4K) give a sharper picture with finer detail for graphic work, video editing and games.

What else should you check?
The refresh rate can be important for fast motion applications such as games. The standard refresh rate is around 60Hz but some monitors can go up to 144Hz to reduce “flicker” and “tearing”. Price is also a consideration as larger sizes and better specifications usually means a higher price.
