Monitor

Whether it's for the home office, graphic design or gaming, you'll find a monitor to suit your needs in our range.

When buying a gaming monitor, there are various factors to consider. Screens with a diagonal of 27" to 34" are among the most popular sizes in the gaming sector. Depending on the graphics performance, the image resolution and refresh rate can be selected. If you are in the high-end range with your gaming equipment, you can easily go for a 2K or 4K monitor. If you are in the entry-level or mid-range range, Full HD is the better choice. To determine the appropriate refresh rate, you can use your current games as a reference. If you achieve high FPS figures without any problems, it is worth investing in a monitor that achieves a refresh rate of 144 hertz or higher. If you do not achieve these FPS figures, a monitor with a lower refresh rate will suffice. If you play on a PC or notebook with an nVidia or AMD graphics card, you should take a look at the "Gaming" filter. Many monitor manufacturers optimise the monitor for cooperation with the graphics card to enable a smoother picture.

If you want to use your monitor mainly for working, there are other factors to consider. A screen diagonal of 24 inches is one of the classics among office monitors. If you often work with different programmes, it is worthwhile to go for a larger screen diagonal. To enable ergonomic work, there are various adjustment options. You can choose whether your monitor should be rotatable, height-adjustable or tiltable.

If you want to use your monitor for graphics work, it is worth investing in an image resolution of 2K, 4K or even higher. The ideal graphics screens range from 27 inches upwards and have curvature, especially at higher screen diagonals. Also, check out the "Colour Space Coverage" filter, where you can filter by the common colour reproduction standards according to your needs.
