CNET's top DisplayPort monitors

A look at monitors with DisplayPort CNET considers the best of the bunch.

Probably the least likely DisplayPort monitor of the bunch, but that also makes it the most exciting! At least for me. Josh P. Miller/CNET

I think there were many who follow the electronics field who believed DisplayPort would quickly usurp DVI as the digital connection of choice on computer monitors. That (probably inevitable) future has yet to be realized, but its likelihood is increasing.

It's taken a few years, but judging by the ratio of DisplayPort-capable monitors we've reviewed in 2010 vs. 2009 (4:1), I'd say 2011 will likely be its breakout year.

So, while we all wait for DisplayPort to become a household name, I've compiled a list of the best DisplayPort-capable displays we've reviewed so far. Enjoy.
