If you own a gaming PC or even just use a screen on a daily basis, you might overlook your most-used peripheral, the monitor. A good monitor can make a big difference in your daily tasks – from competitive gaming to watching a movie to simply multitasking for work.
A monitor can be used with a PC, laptop, MacBook, smartphone or games console – and sometimes, depending on the number of ports, potentially with all those sources connected at once. No matter how and for what purpose you use your monitor, a good one can make all the difference.
