Best gaming monitors of this moment

The developments in the land of monitors are going fast, especially in the field of gaming. We are often asked what the best gaming monitor is. I have outlined the best gaming monitors of this moment per category.

The ultimate boss. The Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ is the absolute king among gaming monitors in the ultra high-end category. If you have a sample of a gaming PC and you have extremely high demands for your gaming monitor, this is the screen for you. You game on 4K with a refresh rate of 144Hz, and can even game in HDR. Its appearance is nice, too: the PG27UQ has a mat black design and with the projector at the bottom, you can project a logo you designed yourself on your desk.

Isn't a super fast 27-inch monitor the thing you're looking for, but do you just want to have something special in your gaming setup, you should choose the Samsung LC49HG90. On this superultrawide screen, you play with an aspect ratio of 32:9, which means that you can benefit from a very large field of view in many games. This way, you see practically the whole field at a game of FIFA and see your opponents from your corner of the eye in games like Battlefield or Fortnite.

Mid-range gaming monitor

The Acer Predator XB271HUAbmiprz is Coolblue's Choice for a mid-range gaming monitor, and that's not for no reason. As a gamer, you want your games to be rendered smoothly and your monitor to respond quickly to every input from your mouse and keyboard. Thanks to the refresh rate of 144Hz of this screen and the response time of only 1 ms, you can play fast shooters without any problems. With a brightness of 350cd/m², you can see your opponents in dark scenes and you can see the image well in brightly lit rooms. The gaming appearance completes it.

If you have a limited budget or you just started gaming, you still want a fast screen on which you can make your first gaming steps. The AOC C24G1 has a Full HD resolution and an average image quality. In terms of refresh rate (144Hz) and response time (1ms) you're fine, but if you want to see dark details in your games better, you should choose a screen with a higher brightness.

The best monitor for console gaming

There are more and more monitors on the market that have been developed for use with a console. Instead of your television, connect your Playstation 4 or Xbox One to a monitor. As a result, you can benefit from the lowest possible input lag and a fast response time. In addition, on a console gaming monitor, you connect your decoder or Chromecast to enjoy your favorite movies and series in 4K HDR. The Samsung LU28E570DS/EN has a refresh rate, so you can achieve the maximum refresh rate with console gaming. Thanks to the 4K resolution, you can play games at the highest resolution.
