Built with premium engineering and components, the Alienware AW2720HF uses a 240-hertz IPS panel with a 1-millisecond response time that minimizes ghosting and motion blur. Its USB 3.0 hub consists of two outlets on the bottom and two on the back next to the upstream port.
- Wide viewing angle
- Is a bulky design
- Below-average pixel density
Gamers on a tight budget won’t have to sacrifice much with the AOC C24G1A , which is about as affordable as a 165-hertz display comes. It offers an impressive warranty with 3 years of advance replacement on top of a zero-tolerance policy for dead pixels.
- 1080p resolution
- Surprisingly wide color gamut
- Not as big as many current options
If you’re looking for a large display and don’t want to spend much, it’s hard to beat the AOC CQ32G1 , which measures 32 inches and has in-depth settings control and preset profiles for various game genres as well as plenty of real estate to help increase productivity.
- 1800r curvature
- Produces up to 144 fps
- Not great in bright rooms
Acer ConceptD CP7
You’ll be hard-pressed to find anything more advanced than the Acer ConceptD CP7 , which boasts an Ultra HD panel with DisplayHDR1000 certification, near-complete coverage of the Adobe RGB and DCI-P3 gamuts, and an adaptive refresh rate range of 1 to 144 hertz.
- 384 local dimming zones
- Pantone validated color accuracy
- Extremely expensive
Essentially the equivalent of two side-by-side 1440p displays, the Samsung CRG9 measures a whopping 49 inches and has an aspect ratio of 32 to 9, which allows for highly immersive gaming as well as quite a few simultaneous open windows for increased productivity.
- Quantum dot filtration
- Peak brightness of 1000 nits
- Takes up a lot of desk space
HP Omen X 27
Few can deliver as smooth of an image as the HP Omen X 27 , which can take advantage of up to 240 frames per second and offers an especially clear picture thanks to its high pixel density. Despite its high performance, it actually comes at a moderate price.
- Minimal backlight bleed
- Input lag of 5 milliseconds
- Subpar hdr performance
While it officially supports AMD FreeSync, the AOC CU34G2X works well with Nvidia’s technology, but some users find it needs a little tweaking to avoid flickering. Overall, though, it’s one of the best entry-level ultrawide models around.
- 2 hdmi and 2 displayport inputs
- Built-in usb 3 hub
- 3-year zero dead pixel warranty
Asus TUF VG279QM
Offered in 24 or 27 inches, the Asus TUF VG279QM sports an almost unheard-of 280-hertz refresh rate that produces just about the smoothest motion possible, in addition to its especially low input lag. The only major drawback is that it’s limited to a 1080p resolution.
- Equipped with an ips panel
- Displayhdr 400 certification
- Peak brightness is above average
A 21-to-9 aspect ratio with a 1900R curvature means the Alienware AW3420DW can provide as immersive an experience as just about any other option. Its 120-hertz refresh rate is controlled by an authentic Nvidia VRR module, ensuring compatibility and reduced input lag.
- Advanced nano ips technology
- Extremely wide color gamut
- Resolution of 3440 by 1440
Viewsonic Elite XG270QG
Despite its reasonable price, the Viewsonic Elite XG270QG boasts some relatively high-end features, including simulated 10-bit color depth and a special Nano IPS technology that resembles quantum dot filtration and greatly increases the range of hues it’s able to display.
- 1440p resolution
- Ultra-low motion blur
- 98 percent dci-p3 color gamut
