FIVE THIN GS TO LOO K OUT FOR …

Ob­vi­ously you need a screen that will dis­play your pho­tos ac­cu­rately – but there’s more to a mon­i­tor than that…

01 In­puts

We’d always rec­om­mend us­ing a dig­i­tal in­ter­face like DVI or HDMI, but it de­pends on what your com­puter has. Do you want to plug in mul­ti­ple de­vices? Make sure your new mon­i­tor has the same in­put as your com­puter has out­put!

02 Swivel and pivot

Sev­eral of th­ese dis­plays en­able you to swivel the mon­i­tor from side to side and turn the screen 90 de­grees into portrait mode.

03 Res­o­lu­tion

Most mon­i­tors are now ca­pa­ble of Full HD res­o­lu­tion (1920x1080) but more and more can do higher res­o­lu­tions – many here are ca­pa­ble of 2560x1440, for ex­am­ple.

04 USB hub

With so many de­vices plugged into our com­put­ers th­ese days, a USB hub re­ally is some­thing you’ll won­der how you lived with­out.

05 De­sign

So many mon­i­tors – in­clud­ing sev­eral of th­ese – are just plain ugly. Also see what peo­ple are say­ing about the but­ton con­trols and menu sys­tem. En­sure it is us­able.
