HP 27er T3M88AA FHD Monitor

Best Monitor Under 300 Dollars 2020 (Best Overall)

The HP 27er gives you as much as possible, for the lowest price imaginable. It’s thin, it’s lightweight, it’s stylish and yet not overbearing. The bezels are nominal, and the image & color quality compete with the best out there.

This monitor is not only our “Best Overall” pick, but has also garnered our choice for the Best 27 inch Monitor Under 300 Dollars.

The HP 27er utilizes HP Enhance+ resolution that amplifies images, videos, and games by reducing noise through an advanced filter. We personally like the unique stand that has a base that seems to mimic the look of an Apple wireless trackpad.

HP of course is so stranger to most households, so you can count on receiving a high-end, low priced product that will retain it’s incredible value over a number of years.


Dell Ultrasharp U2415 FHD Monitor

Best Monitor Under 300 Dollars 2020 (Best for Work)

Virtually every Ultrasharp monitor from Dell is worth purchasing, and as one wtg user commented “Dell Ultrasharps rocks!”.

This monitor is not only our “Best for Work” pick, but has also garnered our choice for the Best 24 inch Monitor Under 300 Dollars.

The Dell Ultrasharp U2415 is currently one of the highest rated, and most purchased monitors available, and for very good reasons. The style is modern and minimalistic, and looks equally great at home or in an office. The standard FHD resolution is 1920 x 1080, this Ultrasharp pushes the boundaries to a classification of WUXGA with a resolution of 1920 x 1200.

The minimal bezels allows you to focus more on your work projects and less on an obtrusive black border. Additionally the highly adjustable stand makes it perfect for working in landscape and portrait mode.

The detail, contrast, and sharpness of the images and videos displayed is considerably discernible, and it lives up to it’s name (Ultrasharp).

Best Monitor Under 300 Dollars 2020 (Best for Gaming)

ASUS has managed to include essentially everything you could want as a serious gamer. It has the impressive 144Hz refresh rate with a 1ms (GTG) response time, which of course is great for speedy and fluid gameplay.

The Adaptive-Sync (FreeSync) additionally helps reduce screen tearing and choppy frame rates. ASUS even takes it a step further by considering your eye health, with fricker-free tech. and ultra-low blue light technology. Perfect for all day/all night gaming sessions.

This monitor is not only our “Best for Gaming” pick, but has also garnered our choice for the Best 144hz Monitor Under 300 Dollars.

The screen size we recommend is the 27 inch, but there are plenty of ASUS options (associated to the VG278QR) ranging from 24.5 inches to 32 inches.

A fixed 19-inch (48 cm), 4:3 rack mount LCD monitor

Best Computer Monitors Under 300

A fixed rack mount monitor is mounted directly to the rack with the LCD visible at all times. The height of the unit is measured in rack units (RU) and 8U or 9U are most common to fit 17-inch or 19-inch LCDs.

Best 24 inch Monitor Under 300

The front sides of the unit are provided with flanges to mount to the rack, providing appropriately spaced holes or slots for the rack mounting screws.

Best Computer Monitors Under 300

A 19-inch diagonal LCD is the largest size that will fit within the rails of a 19-inch rack. Larger LCDs may be accommodated but are ‘mount-on-rack’ and extend forward of the rack.

Best 24 inch Monitor Under 300

There are smaller display units, typically used in broadcast environments, which fit multiple smaller LCDs side by side into one rack mount.

A 1U stowable clamshell 19-inch (48 cm), 4:3 rack mount LCD monitor with keyboard

Stowable

Best Computer Monitors Under 300

A stowable rack mount monitor is 1U, 2U or 3U high and is mounted on rack slides allowing the display to be folded down and the unit slid into the rack for storage. The display is visible only when the display is pulled out of the rack and deployed.

Best Computer Monitors Under 300

These units may include only a display or may be equipped with a keyboard creating a KVM (Keyboard Video Monitor). Most common are systems with a single LCD but there are systems providing two or three displays in a single rack mount system.

On two-dimensional display devices such as computer monitors the display size or view able image size is the actual amount of screen space that is available to display a picturevideo or working space, without obstruction.

computer monitor is an output device that displays information in pictorial form. A monitor usually comprises the visual displaycircuitry, casing, and power supply. The display device in modern monitors is typically a thin film.

computer monitor is an output device that displays information in pictorial form. A monitor usually comprises the visual displaycircuitry, casing, and power supply.

Best Computer Monitors Under 300

The display device in modern monitors is typically a thin film transistor liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) with LED backlighting having replaced cold-cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL) backlighting. Older monitors used a cathode ray tube (CRT).

Monitors are connected to the computer via VGADigital Visual Interface (DVI), HDMIDisplayPortThunderboltlow-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) or other proprietary connectors and signals.

Best Computer Monitors Under 300

Originally, computer monitors were used for data processing while television sets were used for entertainment.

Best Computer Monitors Under 300

From the 1980s onwards, computers (and their monitors) have been used for both data processing and entertainment, while televisions have implemented some computer functionality. The common aspect ratio of televisions, and computer monitors, has changed from 4:3 to 16:10, to 16:9.

Best Computer Monitors Under 300

Modern computer monitors are easily interchangeable with conventional television sets and viceversa. However, as computer monitors do not necessarily include integrated speakers nor TV tuners (such as Digital television adapters), it may not be possible to use a computer monitor as a TV set without external components.[1]

Best Computer Monitors Under 300

Early electronic computers were fitted with a panel of light bulbs where the state of each particular bulb would indicate the on/off state of a particular register bit inside the computer.

Best Computer Monitors Under 300

This allowed the engineers operating the computer to monitor the internal state of the machine, so this panel of lights came to be known as the ‘monitor’.

Best Computer Monitors Under 300

As early monitors were only capable of displaying a very limited amount of information and were very transient, they were rarely considered for program output. Instead, a line printer was the primary output device, while the monitor was limited to keeping track of the program’s operation.[2]

Best Computer Monitors Under 300

As technology developed engineers realized that the output of a CRT display was more flexible than a panel of light bulbs and eventually, by giving control of what was displayed in the program itself, the monitor itself became a powerful output device in its own right.[citation needed]

Best Computer Monitors Under 300

Computer monitors were formerly known as visual display units (VDU), but this term had mostly fallen out of use by the 1990s.

Multiple technologies have been used for computer monitors. Until the 21st century most used cathode ray tubes but they have largely been superseded by LCD monitors.

Cathode ray tube[edit]

Best 144hz Monitor Under 300

The first computer monitors used cathode ray tubes (CRTs). Prior to the advent of home computers in the late 1970s, it was common for a video display terminal (VDT) using a CRT to be physically integrated with a keyboard and other components of the system in a single large chassis.

The display was monochrome and far less sharp and detailed than on a modern flat-panel monitor, necessitating the use of relatively large text and severely limiting the amount of information that could be displayed at one time.

High-resolution CRT displays were developed for the specialized military, industrial and scientific applications but they were far too costly for general use.

Best 144hz Monitor Under 300

Some of the earliest home computers (such as the TRS-80 and Commodore PET) were limited to monochrome CRT displays, but color display capability was already a standard feature of the pioneering Apple II, introduced in 1977, and the specialty of the more graphically sophisticated Atari 800, introduced in 1979.

Either computer could be connected to the antenna terminals of an ordinary color TV set or used with a purpose-made CRT color monitor for optimum resolution and color quality.

Lagging several years behind, in 1981 IBM introduced the Color Graphics Adapter, which could display four colors with a resolution of 320 x 200 pixels, or it could produce 640 x 200 pixels with two colors.

In 1984 IBM introduced the Enhanced Graphics Adapter which was capable of producing 16 colors and had a resolution of 640 x 350.[3]

Best 144hz Monitor Under 300

By the end of the 1980s color CRT monitors that could clearly display 1024 x 768 pixels were widely available and increasingly affordable. During the following decade, maximum display resolutions gradually increased and prices continued to fall.

Best 144hz Monitor Under 300

CRT technology remained dominant in the PC monitor market into the new millennium partly because it was cheaper to produce and offered to view angles close to 180 degrees.[4]

CRTs still offer some image quality advantages[clarification needed] over LCDs but improvements to the latter have made them much less obvious.

Best Computer Monitors Under 300

The dynamic range of early LCD panels was very poor, and although text and other motionless graphics were sharper than on a CRT, an LCD characteristic known as pixel lag caused moving graphics to appear noticeably smeared and blurry.

Best Gaming Monitors Under 300

There are multiple technologies that have been used to implement liquid crystal displays (LCD). Throughout the 1990s, the primary use of LCD technology as computer monitors was in laptops where the lower power consumption, lighter weight, and smaller physical size of LCDs justified the higher price versus a CRT.

Best Gaming Monitors Under 300

Commonly, the same laptop would be offered with an assortment of display options at increasing price points: (active or passive) monochrome, passive color, or active matrix color (TFT). As volume and manufacturing capability have improved, the monochrome and passive color technologies were dropped from most product lines.

TFT-LCD is a variant of LCD which is now the dominant technology used for computer monitors.[5]

Best Gaming Monitors Under 300

The first standalone LCDs appeared in the mid-1990s selling for high prices. As prices declined over a period of years they became more popular, and by 1997 were competing with CRT monitors.

Best Gaming Monitors Under 300

Among the first desktop LCD computer monitors was the Eizo L66 in the mid-1990s, the Apple Studio Display in 1998, and the Apple Cinema Display in 1999. In 2003, TFT-LCDs outsold CRTs for the first time, becoming the primary technology used for computer monitors.[4] 

Best Gaming Monitors Under 300

The main advantages of LCDs over CRT displays are that LCDs consume less power, take up much less space, and are considerably lighter. The now common active matrix TFT-LCD technology also has less flickering than CRTs, which reduces eye strain.[6] 

Best Gaming Monitors Under 300

On the other hand, CRT monitors have superior contrast, have a superior response time, are able to use multiple screen resolutions natively, and there is no discernible flicker if the refresh rate[7] is set to a sufficiently high value. LCD monitors have now very high temporal accuracy and can be used for vision research.[8]

High dynamic range (HDR)[7] has been implemented into high-end LCD monitors to improve color accuracy. Since around the late 2000s, widescreen LCD monitors have become popular.

Best Computer Monitors Under 300

In part due to television seriesmotion pictures and video games transitioning to high-definition (HD), which makes standard-width monitors unable to display them correctly as they either stretch or crop HD content.

Best Gaming Monitors Under 300

These types of monitors may also display it in the proper width, however they usually fill the extra space at the top and bottom of the image with black bars.

Best Computer Monitors Under 300

Other advantages of widescreen monitors over standard-width monitors is that they make work more productive by displaying more of a user’s documents and images, and allow displaying toolbars with documents.

Best Gaming Monitors Under 300

They also have a larger viewing area, with a typical widescreen monitor having a 16:9 aspect ratio, compared to the 4:3 aspect ratio of a typical standard-width monitor.

Organic light-emitting diode (OLED) monitors provide higher contrast and better viewing angles than LCDs but they require more power when displaying documents with white or bright backgrounds and have a severe problem known as burn-in. They are less common than LCD monitors and are often more expensive.

Measurements of performance[edit]

Best Gaming Monitors Under 300

The performance of a monitor is measured by the following parameters:

  • Luminanceis measured in candelas per square meter (cd/m2 also called a Nit).
  • Color depthis measured in bits per primary color or bits for all colors.
  • Gamutis measured as coordinates in the CIE 1931 color space. The names sRGB or AdobeRGB are shorthand notations.
  • Aspect ratiois the ratio of the horizontal length to the vertical length. Monitors usually have the aspect ratio 4:35:416:10 or 16:9.
  • Viewable image sizeis usually measured diagonally, but the actual widths and heights are more informative since they are not affected by the aspect ratio in the same way. For CRTs, the viewable size is typically 1 in (25 mm) smaller than the tube itself.
  • Display resolutionis the number of distinct pixels in each dimension that can be displayed. For a given display size, maximum resolution is limited by dot pitch.
  • Dot pitchis the distance between sub-pixels of the same color in millimeters. In general, the smaller the dot pitch, the sharper the picture will appear.
  • Refresh rateis the number of times in a second that a display is illuminated. Maximum refresh rate is limited by response time.
  • Response timeis the time a pixel in a monitor takes to go from active (white) to inactive (black) and back to active (white) again, measured in milliseconds. Lower numbers mean faster transitions and therefore fewer visible image artifacts.
  • Contrast ratiois the ratio of the luminosity of the brightest color (white) to that of the darkest color (black) that the monitor is capable of producing.
  • Power consumptionis measured in watts.
  • Delta-E: Color accuracy is measured in delta-E; the lower the delta-E, the more accurate the color representation. A delta-E of below 1 is imperceptible to the human eye. Delta-Es of 2 to 4 are considered good and require a sensitive eye to spot the difference.
  • Viewing angleis the maximum angle at which images on the monitor can be viewed, without excessive degradation to the image. It is measured in degrees horizontally and vertically.

The area, height and width of displays with identical diagonal measurements vary dependent on aspect ratio.

Best Gaming Monitors Under 300

On two-dimensional display devices such as computer monitors the display size or view able image size is the actual amount of screen space that is available to display a picturevideo or working space, without obstruction from the case or other aspects of the unit’s design.

Best 24 inch Monitor Under 300

The main measurements for display devices are: width, height, total area and the diagonal.

Best Monitors Under 300

The size of a display is usually by monitor manufacturers given by the diagonal, i.e. the distance between two opposite screen corners. This method of measurement is inherited from the method used for the first generation of CRT television, when picture tubes with circular faces were in common use.

Best Monitors Under 300

Being circular, it was the external diameter of the glass envelope that described their size. Since these circular tubes were used to display rectangular images, the diagonal measurement of the rectangular image was smaller than the diameter of the tube’s face (due to the thickness of the glass).

Best Monitors Under 300

This method continued even when cathode ray tubes were manufactured as rounded rectangles; it had the advantage of being a single number specifying the size, and was not confusing when the aspect ratio was universally 4:3.

Best Monitors Under 300

With the introduction of flat panel technology, the diagonal measurement became the actual diagonal of the visible display. This meant that an eighteen-inch LCD had a larger visible area than an eighteen-inch cathode ray tube.

Best Monitor Under 300$

The estimation of the monitor size by the distance between opposite corners does not take into account the display aspect ratio, so that for example a 16:9 21-inch (53 cm) widescreen display has less area, than a 21-inch (53 cm) 4:3 screen.

Best 24 inch Monitor Under 300

The 4:3 screen has dimensions of 16.8 in × 12.6 in (43 cm × 32 cm) and area 211 sq in (1,360 cm2), while the widescreen is 18.3 in × 10.3 in (46 cm × 26 cm), 188 sq in (1,210 cm2).

Main article: Display aspect ratio

Until about 2003, most computer monitors had a 4:3 aspect ratio and some had 5:4. Between 2003 and 2006, monitors with 16:9 and mostly 16:10 (8:5) aspect ratios became commonly available, first in laptops and later also in standalone monitors.

Best Monitor Under 300$

Reasons for this transition was productive uses for such monitors, i.e. besides widescreen computer game play and movie viewing, are the word processor display of two standard letter pages side by side, as well as CAD displays of large-size drawings and CAD application menus at the same time.[9][10] 

Best Monitors Under 300

In 2008 16:10 became the most common sold aspect ratio for LCD monitors and the same year 16:10 was the mainstream standard for laptops and notebook computers.[11]

Best Monitor Under 300$

In 2010 the computer industry started to move over from 16:10 to 16:9 because 16:9 was chosen to be the standard high-definition television display size, and because they were cheaper to manufacture.

Best Monitor Under 300$

In 2011 non-widescreen displays with 4:3 aspect ratios were only being manufactured in small quantities.

Best 24 inch Monitor Under 300

According to Samsung this was because the “Demand for the old ‘Square monitors’ has decreased rapidly over the last couple of years,” and “I predict that by the end of 2011, production on all 4:3 or similar panels will be halted due to a lack of demand.”[12]

 Before 2013 top-end consumer LCD monitors were limited to 2560×1600 at 30 in (76 cm), excluding Apple products and CRT monitors. Apple introduced 2880×1800 with Retina MacBook Pro at 15.4 in (39 cm) on June 12, 2012, and introduced a 5120×2880 Retina iMac at 27 in (69 cm) on October 16, 2014. By 2015 most major display manufacturers had released 3840×2160 resolution displays.

Best Monitors Under 300

Every RGB monitor has its own color gamut, bounded in chromaticity by a color triangle. Some of these triangles are smaller than the sRGB triangle, some are larger. Colors are typically encoded by 8 bits per primary color.

Best Computer Monitors Under 300

The RGB value [255, 0, 0] represents red, but slightly different colors in different color spaces such as AdobeRGB and sRGB. Displaying sRGB-encoded data on wide-gamut devices can give an unrealistic result.[14] 

Best Monitor Under 300$

The gamut is a property of the monitor; the image color space can be forwarded as Exif metadata in the picture. As long as the monitor gamut is wider than the color space gamut, correct display is possible, if the monitor is calibrated.
