When buying a computer, we will be especially picky when choosing a monitor. Depending on what you are doing – working, being passionate about 22Bet betting, or playing computer games, you have different needs and look at different parameters.
First, it directly affects vision (and the nervous system too). Secondly, it will stand in plain sight (you want it to be aesthetically attractive). Thirdly, due to temporary financial difficulties, it is necessary to choose such a monitor model, the purchase of which will not hit the family budget hard.
In our article, we will look at the parameters that you should pay attention to when choosing a monitor for your computer.
The first thing that interests us is the screen diagonal, which ranges from 15 to 30 inches. If you are going to watch movies or play a lot, then you should choose a monitor with a diagonal from 22 to 24 inches. The aspect ratio of the screen, the ratio of width to height, also matters. Aspect 4: 3 (less commonly 5: 4) is considered normal, and 16:9 (less commonly 16:10) is considered wide. A widescreen monitor is more convenient for video and games. These days 16:9 is the norm, so we won’t suggest anything lower.
Next, pay attention to the maximum resolution of the monitor. Image resolution is specified by specifying the screen size in pixels. The higher the resolution, the more detailed will be image be. These days 1080p is the bare minimum recommended for gaming and multi-media with 1440p and 4K (2160p) being in the enthusiast niche.
Brightness and Contrast
The minimum recommended value for brightness is 250 cd/m2 (candela per square meter). The higher the contrast ratio, the better the color is reproduced. During the animation, when a brighter image is shown, the brightness of the backlight is added (while dark places are still perceived by the eye as dark), and when a darker image is displayed, the brightness of the backlight is reduced (while light places are still perceived by the eye as light). It should be noted that dynamic contrast has no practical value, it is used only to impress the imagination of an inexperienced buyer.
Monitor Response Time
The response time is the shortest time it takes to change the brightness of a pixel. It is not so important for office work, but it is important for video and games. With response times over 5 milliseconds, the image is blurred because the frames are changing too quickly.
Screen Viewing Angle
The angle of view indicates the maximum angle at which you can see the image on the monitor in normal quality. This can be important when watching videos. The angle is indicated in the vertical and horizontal planes and can be up to 170.
Analog or Digital Monitor?
Analog monitors are convenient because they are connected to a computer using an ordinary cable. However, when converting an analog signal to digital, slight framing shadows or picture jitter may appear, especially when the monitor is used for a long time. Digital monitors work without a signal converter, so they are usually cheaper than analog ones.
LED Monitors and 3D LED Monitors
Monitors with light-emitting diode (LED) backlighting provide the best picture quality. LED monitors last longer than conventional LCD monitors and consume less energy. There are also monitors with 3D support, all actions on such a monitor are more realistic. 3D monitors require appropriate glasses and graphics cards.
We hope that our advice helped you and clarified what parameters should be looked at when buying.
