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.

Asus ROG Swift PG348Q

The latest screen from the Asus Republic of Gamers range is a monster. The PG348Q has a 34in diagonal and a 3,440 x 1,440 resolution, and the vast number of those pixels are stretched around a curved IPS panel. Nvidia G-Sync is present, too, alongside...

LG 34UC79G

If you’re a casual or competitive gamer looking to spend less than £500 on an ultrawide monitor, I don’t think you’ll find many that compete with the LG 34UC79G. I recommend it.

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.

ASUS MG248Q

For the money, you can't buy a faster gaming display that offers a 144Hz refresh rate. Some might be turned off by the TN panel, but it still looks darn good in the flesh. You won't be disappointed.

Samsung C27F591

I have a habit of dismissing built-in monitor speakers, as they tend to sound far worse than even a £20 set of desktop models. However, the C27F591FDU’s speakers are a pleasant surprise. They’re only rated at 5W, but have plenty of punch and little...
