It's not the most feature-packed monitor you can get for the money, but the Dell UltraSharp 27 (U2717D) is a fine general-purpose display.
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.
The flagship of its new curved QLED game displays can replace two side-by-side 27-inchers, and the three models are the first to support AMD FreeSync 2.
The M228WD is the height of convenience. It comes with both analogue and digital TV tuners, and works very well in PC mode. Image quality isn't so hot in TV mode, but it offers great value for money and is more convenient than installing a separate TV tuner
The LG W2353V's decent array of inputs, excellent styling and good pictures mean this monitor represents great value for money. The Forte Manager software is a useful bonus, making the display easy to set up and use

The Black Jewel's super-high contrast ratio and fast response time make it one of the best monitors for movies and games. It also looks great, but it's let down by its lack of widescreen and a slight loss of detail in near-white tones
The HP W2007v is the ideal monitor for anyone on a budget. It's sorely lacking any interesting or useful features, but if you can live without the extra frills, it'll make a great companion to your PC

For those on a tight budget, the BenQ G2220HD will prove a great 1080p monitor, costing no more than you'd pay for a conventional 16:10-format monitor with a lower resolution. An HDMI port and speakers are sadly lacking, but the monitor's colour reproduction is very good
The Toshiba FF1 is one of a new breed of projectors that produces its image using LEDs (light-emitting diodes) instead of a conventional lamp, meaning it can run off a rechargeable battery and it doesn't produce much heat. But one of the coolest things about it is that it can display JPEG images directly from a USB memory stick
An excellent inexpensive monitor for everyday use, the UltraSharp 24 (U2417H) doesn't offer a lot of bells and whistles but it delivers everything you need in a general-purpose display.

The Samsung T27A950 is a hybrid PC monitor and 3D LED TV with catwalk looks. While the telly component has the upper hand, there's much to recommend it to casual 3D gamers, whether using PC or a console. It's a fast, sharp and reassuringly exclusive multi-purpose screen.
