Best monitors to buy without breaking the bank

A monitor is essential for getting the most out of your gaming sessions and photo and video editing. While some curved 4K monitors can cost upwards of Tk. 50,000 to Tk. 100,000, today we're going to be looking at the best bang for your buck in the world of smart monitor investments.



Price: Tk. 11,000

Display Size21.5" IPS

Contrast Ratio 1,000:1


Response Time 5ms

Aspect Ratio 16: 9

Verdict: This budget monitor comes with freesync technology which ensures smooth gameplay by fixing choppiness and image tearing. The no-compromises factor for this monitor is further reinstated with the inclusion of LG's Black Stabilizer feature which allows users to improve the visibility of dark scenes in games, photos and videos. And with a 72% colour gamut, this monitor can generate almost true colour with the right settings. It also allows for split screen functionality making it a great monitor for multitasking. But what really sets this monitor apart that too at its price point is the fact that freesync allows the monitor to unlock the 75Hz refresh rate as opposed to its competitors which run g-sync. The only noticeable downside of this monitor is that since it's an IPS display, there are the usual IPS glows. But overall, this monitor is great for gamers and beginner photo and video editors.

Price: Tk. 19,500

Display Size – 24" LED

Contrast Ratio – 1000:1

Response Time – 1ms

Resolution – 1920 x 1080

Refresh Rate – 75Hz, 60Hz - optimised for console

Verdict: The BENQ Zowie is easily the best budget monitor for gamers. The monitor comes with presets for RTS games making it a good choice for playing strategy games like DOTA 2 and StarCraft II.

It also comes with a Movie mode, an energy-saving Eco mode and three "Gamer" presets, making the monitor a spectacle of modes which can change your viewing experience at the literal flick of a switch.

The monitor however has no height adjustment is a huge downside for gamers.

Dell S2218H


Price: Tk. 10,500

Display Size – 21.5" IPS

Contrast Ratio – 1,000:1

Resolution 1920X1080

Response Time – 6ms

Aspect Ratio – 16:9

Verdict: The Dell monitor has ultra thin bezels on its sides with a 1cm chin to fit the logo. The speakers are downward pointing making the small speakers pack a punch. The monitor is flexible as well, with plenty of back tilt and a little bit of forward tilt. While the screen is reflective it is not nearly as much as some and of course this does show finger marks but as it is not a touch screen there is no real reason to touch the screen.

Samsung C27F390FHW


Price: Tk. 27,500/-

Display Size – 27" Curved

Contrast Ratio – 3,000:1

Response Time – 4ms

Resolution – 1920x1080

Connectivity – HDMI, Headphone

Verdict: This LED display from Samsung comes with a deep immersive curve 1800R screen. If you are into gaming then you are in luck. The AMD FreeSync ensures you get a flawlessly smooth gaming experience in this slim profile display. The display comes with a HDMI port and a headphone jack. No other ports... not even a USB port. With the Samsung Magic Bright display option, you can also get preset optimised option for watching movies.

HP EliteDisplay E223


Price: Tk. 13,500

Display Size – 21.5" IPS

Contrast Ratio – 1000:1 static; 5000000:1 dynamic

Response Time – 5 ms

Resolution – 1920 x 1080

Refresh Rate – 60Hz

Verdict: With a sleek and compact design, the HP EliteDisplay is a wide-angle monitor with ultra thin bezels. The Full HD LED Backlit display is easy on the eyes, making for a comfortable viewing experience.  The monitor comes with native Xbox and Ps4 support. The monitor however lacks adjustability controls, so unfortunately no pivoting or height adjusting. You get the usual problems that come with an IPS display in the form of IPS glows. But the monitor is premium looking and its default viewing angles are set to fit a lot of detail on screen. It's a great purchase for any editor or console gamer.

The monitor has wide viewing angles, supporting 178° wide-angle viewing. The monitor is best for home users who are in the market for a bright monitor to game on. The ultra slim design makes for an immersive experience.
