We continue with “How to Choose properly “series, and in this article, we will tell you how to choose a monitor.

Monitor is a tool for showing-up information. There are many different types of high-quality monitors that differs in appearance and design. A small social survey of “How do people choose monitors “shows that most of audience choose a monitor by size and design.

We'll tell you what to look out for when purchasing a monitor.

First, we need to understand for what monitor will be used for (for example, an office computer, a home, or some other specific application). If you simply have a broken old monitor and need to buy a new one, then make sure the new monitor will fit your new computer.

If you are in doubt and cannot decide by yourself which monitor would be best for you, then feel free to contact us, our Good IT Service team will help you cope and find the monitor you need.

If you are confident in your capabilities - you know exactly what the monitor will be for, what the required size and design are, it would be a good idea to see what additional features are required. It is very convenient that you can customize your monitor individually - adjust its height, angle, and rotate it as needed. Monitor ports (sockets) are also important - if your monitor has more than one port, it makes this monitor more versatile, with the capabilities of a more modern connection - a much faster port supported by your computer.

The most popular connection types are VGA, DVI, HDMI and DP.

VGA (Video Graphics Array) - A fairly old type of contact, but it is still used by most modern monitors to connect them to older computers.

DVI (Digital Visual Interface) is a successor to VGA and is installed on almost all new monitors. DVI transmits a digital signal quickly and efficiently.

HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) - A multimedia connector with a higher bandwidth than DVI. Supports all modern screen resolutions. It transmits audio and video signals immediately, so they are used in other multimedia devices (such as TVs, media players, etc.).

DP (DisplayPort) - The most advanced contact currently. It has even more bandwidth. Like an HDMI contact, it can immediately transmit audio and video signals.

Before you buy a monitor, it is worth figuring out whether your computer will be able to provide the monitor with the resolution you need. An older computer may not provide, for example, UHD resolution, then you should opt for a lower resolution monitor (such as HD) or consider upgrading your computer and / or purchasing a new computer.
