KITGURU SHORTLISTS: THE BEST MONITOR OF 2022

Last updated on April 21st, 2022 at 08:12 am

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.

iiyama GB2770QSU 1440p/165Hz Monitor

Offering a 27in 1440p panel - considered by many to be the 'sweet spot' for gaming - this 165Hz IPS gaming monitor is priced at just £250, but it backs that price up with a high quality panel, fast response times and low input latency. It really is one of the bargains of the year.

AOC U28G2XU 4K/144Hz

AOC definitely had to make some compromises to get this monitor available at the price point, but arguably the most important thing to know is the IPS panel itself is high quality.

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.
