KITGURU SHORTLISTS: THE BEST MONITOR OF 2021

Last updated on June 15th, 2021 at 12:39 pm

The size and resolution of your monitor will dictate the real estate available for work and how immersive your game play will be – but if you are a professional or perfectionist, then you may also want to know about colour accuracy, panel technology and HDR.

ASUS ROG SWIFT PG35VQ

It wasn't long ago that the 24in Full HD screen was the sweet spot for gaming. But size and resolution have been inflating in the last couple of years, and we've started to see a flow of curved ultrawide screens with a 21:9 aspect ratio. The ASUS ROG SWIFT PG35VQ sits at the pinnacle of this trend. It's a 35in screen with a 3,440 x 1,440 resolution, and is premium in every respect - it's an all-round fantastic gaming display.

iiyama G-Master GB3466WQSU

Ultrawide monitors have been around for a while now, but pricing has often been a significant deterrent to making the switch from a traditional 16:9 screen. That appears to be changing, however, as we first reviewed the £500 AOC CU34G2X back in January, and today we review iiyama's G-Master GB3466WQSU - a 3440x1440 ultrawide with a 1500R curved VA panel and 144Hz refresh rate.

Gigabyte M27Q

The Gigabyte M27Q is capable of surprisingly good quality, when you consider that its unique feature is supposed to be its KVM. Fortunately, Gigabyte did not make this screen a one trick pony. You could buy it, never use the KVM, and still be pleased with the results. You can purchase 27in screens offering this resolution with higher refresh rates, such as the 240Hz AOC AGON AG273QZ, but this costs over £100 more and doesn't have quite such good image quality.

AOC C27G2ZU 27in 240Hz Curved Gaming Monitor

Monitor refresh rates are increasing all the time, and it wasn't long ago that you'd have to pay in excess of £500 for 240Hz, and it wouldn't even be possible to combine this with a curved screen. Now, however, AOC is delivering 240Hz refresh with a 27in curved screen, and you can buy it for under £310. There are two variants of this screen - with and without the USB hub. Our sample was the one with USB, the AOC C27G2ZU.

ASUS ROG Swift PG32UQX

The PG32UQX really has everything you could want from a gaming monitor when used on the PC. The HDR is incredible, the refresh rate coupled with the high resolution makes for a smooth but incredibly sharp experience, while a hardware G-Sync module is also there to prevent things getting choppy if you are playing a particularly demanding game.
