A Complete Guide on Buying a Monitor

Technical Buying Guide
Background

Population A involves around 70 percent of the customers who visit an e-commerce website, search for monitors and start exploring results as per the filters or recommendations by the website. Interestingly, the same customers continue to take suggestions from social media influencers who do not provide the review ratings of hardware components of a monitor within the range of a budget. A poor buying decision leaves the consumer with a useless product that has depreciated its value after it has been unboxed and used.

Population B involves the other 30 percent of customers who visit an e-commerce website looking to buy a new monitor also visit other 3rd party websites that offer in-depth performance reviews of a monitor’s hardware components. The complete insights of the performance rating and the price of different monitors online of different brands help to make a better buying decision for the consumer. Finally, the customer ends up with a valuable product that lets the user accomplish all the activities the user has anticipated for years to come from it.

Consider your requirements again

Make a list of activities you want to perform on your new monitor.

The list of activities can set the boundaries of the performance required from a monitor. Hence, you know exactly what you are looking for and can easily predict how your monitor would handle the operations under stress and in fast graphics.

Are your requirements related to simple tasks, sending emails, MS Office, Outlook, taking notes, internet browsing, and blogging?

If so, then consider buying an average monitor, which is not too expensive and makes your life easy and productive. Also, you could go for anti-glare monitors that do not produce any strain on your eyes.

Are your requirements related to the use of photo editing, video editing, 3D software?

If they are, then you should consider purchasing a monitor that will last at least three or more years to come by checking the current software requirements of all the software you are going to use. And consider getting a monitor with a higher refresh rate, less input lag, 3-D supported if available, and Higher Color Output as the updated software may increase its operational requirements in the future.

Are you buying a gaming monitor?

If you are, then consider purchasing a monitor that will last at least two or more years to come by checking the current PC games requirements of the Game Title that you want to play or maybe releasing in upcoming years. You should order a monitor with a higher refresh rate, less input lag, 3-D supported if available, and Higher Color Output so that you get the best value for the price that you are paying now.
