Here is a point that we often tend to neglect, however, it is the window to your computer. The screen is a central element of the configuration of a PC, an element which in recent years has seen a sharp increase in prices in particular with the arrival of OLED panels.

It is therefore absolutely essential not to make a mistake in choosing the screen that will accompany you for many years. Obviously, you need to know what technical characteristics are necessary to have the best, but also what will suit you best.

The size< /h3>

Before thinking about the budget, this is probably the first question to ask yourself before buying a screen. With sizes generally oscillating between 24, 27, 32 and 34”, the choice of screen size will be a determining element. Although it often comes down to a matter of personal preference, you may be limited to a certain size by your office. Obviously, this will also have a significant influence on the budget needed to purchase your monitor.

The budget

Let's use this opportunity to declare that budget is a matter of size. Of course, the budget is a crucial element to take into account, knowing that the size of the screen will greatly influence the necessary budget. Don't worry, there is generally something for all budgets, even if gaming screens are particularly expensive, often flirting with the limit of more than 1000 euros.

The type of slab

The technology used by the screen panel is absolutely crucial, this will greatly influence the price, the overall image quality, but also the possibilities of using the screen. Unfortunately, there are a lot of them and it's quite easy to get lost, and that's why we're going to do a quick summary of the different technologies here.

The TN panel is a technology that people under 20 cannot be familiar with. Long used in most screens, it represents the “standard” panel from which we must now move away in the outdated proposal.

The VA panel is quite uncommon, and offers better viewing angles and higher contrast compared to the TN panel. This is not necessarily why the technology is much better than TN, and we can only advise you to at least go for IPS.

The IPS panelis the best solution offered in screens for people on a tight budget. It offers good color reproduction, good contrast and good viewing angles. We can criticize it for its slightly higher response time, averaging 2ms, which is only slightly prohibitive for casual players. Overall, IPS is the best technology at an affordable price.

Mini-LED backlighting allows a great improvement in contrast while being brighter than OLED screens. It also has good color rendering and avoids any questions about the “burn-in” or afterimage imposed by organic light panels. However, monitors equipped with Mini-LED remain relatively rare, unlike OLED screens which are becoming a little more numerous at the very high end.

OLEDis the technology that does not have the word compromise in its vocabulary. Infinite contrast, perfect blacks, magnificent vivid colors, almost non-existent response time and wide viewing angle, it's the ultimate technology. The slab, however, has a weak point that should not be overlooked, its tendency to mark. Indeed, the phenomenon is called “burn-in”, which is explained by staying too often on an identical image with the risk that it marks the screen. A phenomenon that we explained in our article about the best gaming TVs here.

The resolution

Now that the question of choosing the panel is out of the way, here is that of choosing the resolution. It's quite simple, you will have to regularly seek the highest resolution in order to have the finest definition possible. The higher the number of pixels per inch, the better your image will be. Overall, the best screens have a resolution of 3840×2160 pixels (4K).

However, if your primary goal is to play in the best conditions, know that a high resolution proportionally requires high-end components and therefore a high price for your PC. Thus, it is sometimes necessary to make concessions and choose a screen with a lower resolution, but with higher refresh rates, especially for FPS aficionados .

Response time and refresh rate

For the most hardcore gamers, it is necessary to choose a screen that will have a minimal response time. Indeed, this data indicates how long it takes a pixel to change from one color to another, which affects the fluidity of moving images. For your information, the Alienware display that we will discuss at the end of this guide has a ridiculously fast response time of 0.03 milliseconds.

Regarding the refresh rate, this is measured in Hz and allows determine how many frames per second are displayed by the screen. So, the higher it is, the smoother the image will be. A high refresh rate is particularly suitable for pro players, since the refresh rate will allow them to more easily adjust their aim depending on the positioning of their enemy, which will be updated more often with a high refresh rate.

We will also favor screens equipped with G-SYNC and Freesync technology, making it possible to avoid the phenomenon of image tearing making it possible to adjust the output frequency of the graphics card to that of the monitor.


If this point is relatively incidental, it is not a bonus, especially for people who do not have easy access to their turn, or who have a laptop PC with very few USB ports. Thus, some screens offer a USB hub which will include ports, USB-A, USB-C.

Certain screens have a particularly useful function which also consists of to plug a laptop into one of the USB-C ports which not only serves to transfer the image, but also to power the computer without the need for the usual charging block. It is also important to have a port.


The last point to consider One important thing when buying a monitor is to check its ergonomics. It is much more practical to have a screen that can be adjusted on different axes rather than a screen that can be placed without being able to adjust its height or viewing angle.

Obviously here, there will be no need to have an exceptional screen, contrary to the needs of the players. On the other hand, it is important to have high resolution, advanced connectivity as well as good ergonomics to work in the best conditions.

Dell U2723QE: The Rolls of work screens

If you don't use your PC for gaming, here is the best screen you can get for working and carrying out office activities in the best conditions. The U2723QE is a 27” screen with a 4K resolution, which gives it a of exceptional pixels per inch, and therefore great display finesse in texts.

Presenting an IPS panel, it has good viewing angles, but more generally features that are particularly useful for having an organized desk.

Indeed, the Dell monitor offers a hub with of 5 USB-A ports and 3 USB-C ports as well as an Ethernet port, allowing you to connect numerous peripherals in order to have the least possible cables in his workspace. In addition, one of its USB-C ports gives the possibility of transmit the image coming from a laptop PC and provide it with a 90W charge with this single cable.

Finally, its ergonomics which lets us orient the U2723QE in all possible and imaginable directions is flawless here. , at the time of writing this guide.

Showing infinite contrasts and astonishing image finesse, it will also be the ideal companion for playing in HDR or watching multimedia content in the best possible conditions with Dolby Vision.

We will, however, criticize it for two points, the fear of burn-in in the event of prolonged use on identical images, as well as its price which is significantly higher. the height of all the criteria that the best possible screen meets. It is currently only available on the Dell website at a price of 1120.30 euros.

LG Ultragear 27GR95QE-B: smaller and less demanding, but just as good

It also has a refresh rate of 240Hz for a response time of 0.03 ms, is G-SYNC compatible, and offers an anti-reflective filter which makes it the ideal companion for bright rooms. Requiring a less demanding configuration, which still remains a significant sum for a monitor.

< p>

So, the 42” LG C3 OLED represents the perfect opportunity to use as a large monitor at a relatively low price compared to what is offered as a PC screen of this size. Featuring all the necessary technologies such as HDMI 2.1 ports, 120Hz refresh rate and reduced response time, we will be amazed by its impeccable image and colors.

, making the TV the best value for money currently in an OLED monitor.
