Samsung C34F791

Big, bright and reasonably accurate, the 34-inch curved Samsung CF791 is a bit expensive for a FreeSync monitor but offers a generous feature set and solid performance for the money if you're a Radeon gamer.

Acer Predator XB272

If you just need it for high-frame-rate gaming, the Acer Predator XB272 is a great option. But otherwise it's a bit lackluster for the money as a general-purpose monitor.

Benq EX3200R

With high quality craftsmanship, superb display quality, and a silky-smooth refresh rate, the BenQ EX3200R is a superb gaming monitor. At 1080p, it’s just not as sharp as it could be, and if you sit close enough, you’ll be able to really pick out those...

HP ENVY 34

HP's use of the 'Envy' brand name has often seemed to smack of hubris -- especially when used with something as mundane as an inkjet printer. But we can't help admiring the sheer, all-out extravagance of this latest addition to the Envy range. As well...

Asus PG279Q

The Asus ROG Swift PG279Q is, on paper, the ideal 27-inch gaming monitor. It has an IPS panel, so overall image quality should be superb, plus it can refresh at up to 165Hz and includes G-Sync technology too. Unless you're after a super-high-resolution...

Philips BDM3490UC

A bright IPS screen goes a long way with any monitor, and having an extra-wide 21:9 curved form factor makes the Philips Brilliance BDM3490UC a real visual treat when playing games or watching movies. Plus it's reasonable value for money too.
