Whether you want a monitor for daily use, or watching movies, or for gaming – the number of choices in the market can make you perplexed.
To cut through the noise, we have shortlisted 8 of the best monitors in India that offer the best combination of features, performance, and value for money.
We are keeping the best first. The LG 27UL500-W is a 27-inch 4K monitor with IPS technology, FreeSync, and detailed on-screen control. It costs higher than others in the list, but is simply worth it, given the outstanding display quality.
The IPS panel has a 10-bit colour depth, 98% sRGB colour gamut, and a wide 178-degree viewing angle. It comes factory calibrated so you don’t need to do any configuration or manual adjustments.
If you’re using it for professional work, you get a decent 300-nit maximum brightness level and a contrast ratio of 700:1 to 1000:1.
Additionally, with a response time of 4ms, you will not see any trailing or motion blur on fast-moving objects. It also supports AMD FreeSync with selected graphics cards.
Other important features include Samsung MagicUpscale that improves the quality of low-resolution images and Eye Saver Mode that filters the blue light.
The BenQ GW2283 is an ergonomically designed monitor that delivers authentic colours with deeper blacks and high contrast. It has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels with a 60 Hz refresh rate and 72% NTSC colour gamut.
Design-wise, the BenQ GW2283 has an ergonomic and stylish design. You will notice the etching texture and a sculpted base with fine whirls and smooth edges providing it with a functional appeal.
It also has an edge-to-edge display with slim bezels that suits any room decor. To make the wire management easier, it uses an invisible management system that encloses all the wires into the monitor stand.
It uses an IPS panel with 8-bit support for 16.7 million colours with a 16:9 aspect ratio, and a contrast ratio of 1000:1. The panel has a maximum brightness level of 250 nits, and 5ms response time.

It delivers immersive gaming and movie-watching experience, thanks to 93.34 PPI pixel density.
The MSI monitor uses a backlight strobing method to deliver an exceptional response time of less than 1ms. The approach involves inserting a black frame between each actual frame so that the monitor can reduce the actual motion blur.
The HP T3M79AA features a stylish steel grey frame with ultra-thin bezels and an ergonomic stand. The edge-to-edge display with an anti-glare IPS panel makes it a smart choice for both home and office use.
It’s a lightweight and sleek monitor, weighing just over 2.5 kgs, and being one of the thinnest displays by HP so far, it only measures 7 mm at its thinnest point.
The monitor has a 23.8-inch screen with Full HD resolution and uses FRC (Frame Rate Control) technology to achieve greater colour depth and native support up to 16.7 million colours. It has a 16:9 aspect ratio and a refresh rate of 60 Hz.
The HP T3M79AA is also an energy-efficient device. It follows all the latest power-saving guidelines to reduce its carbon print.

The Lenovo Q24i-10 is a 23.8-inch IPS panel with Full HD resolution. It has a solid build quality, good features, and a decent performance that makes it one of the best in its range.
The Lenovo Q24i-10 also features two inbuilt stereo speakers that work well to give a decent sound output. At the back, you will get a single HDMI, and a VGA port, along with a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
Apart from its great design, another standout feature of the Q24i is the TUV Rhineland’s Eye Comfort certification, which ensures the display is capable to reduce blue light exposure, flickering, and reflections that can be harmful to your eyes.
The Acer EB192Q is one of the most competitively priced monitors in the market. It offers a perfect blend of style, performance, and affordability.
The monitor features a brushed texture finish with an 18.5-inch display. It’s an HD-ready monitor, so the maximum resolution is only 1366 x 768.
The monitor is a great choice for daily tasks. Since it’s not an IPS monitor, you can’t expect great viewing angles. The colour rendering is decent if not the best, and you will also enjoy its rapid response time.
It has an average contrast ratio and colour reproduction is also not comparable to any IPS monitor. However, if you want to replace your old CRT or you want a budget-friendly monitor for word processing, data entry, or casual gaming – the Acer EB192Q is a smart choice.
The Acer Nitro VG240Y is a Full HD, 24-inch monitor, suitable for fast-paced gaming, content creation or to have an incredible multimedia experience.
Based on IGZO-TFT technology by PANDA, the monitor delivers accurate colour reproduction converting the standard sRGB range with 8-bit colour depth.
It has a contrast ratio of 1000:1, and a maximum brightness level of 250 nits. The display is bright enough to be used in a well-lit room and you might even have to decrease the brightness level under normal viewing conditions.
The display has a pixel-per-inch ratio of 92.56, with support for HDR. In our tests, we found out that HDR support was only software-emulated, which means it’s just average. Being an IPS panel, you will also notice some IPS glow but it’s manageable.
The monitor has an incredible input lag performance which is only 4 ms and a Moving Picture Response Time (MPRT) of 1 ms.
Connectivity options include 2 x HDMI 2.0 ports and a single Display Port 1.2 input.
