6 Best Cheap Monitor List – 2017
Tips for Buying an Affordable Monitor
It’s not that hard to find a good budget monitor for less than $100. Here are some tips to follow when you are shopping for one:
Choose the size you want wisely. You can get a large 20-inch monitor at an affordable price quite easily online. However, make sure you have a big enough desk to place the monitor on safely. Some monitors tip over easily. There should be some space around the monitor to keep it steady.
Bigger monitors need bigger pixels rates. A 1080p rate is great for a 19-inch monitor to display excellent graphics. However, a 1080p 27-inch monitor will not have such good graphics. The larger the screen in the higher the number of pixels it can display should be.
You will notice that many monitors advertise the display resolution rate. The higher the resolution is, the sharper the images will be. Keep in mind that larger screens need higher resolutions than smaller ones.
Buy an Energy Star rated monitor. Don’t buy a monitor that consumes high amounts of power. You can save money and be eco-friendly by buying a monitor that is rated for its energy efficiency.
Make sure the monitor stand is sturdy. Some stands for larger monitors could be flimsy.
Not all monitors have HDMI compatibility. You will have to check the specs carefully to make sure the monitor has HDMI connectivity.
