LED Computer Monitors

LED monitors are LCD computer displays that use light-emitting diodes, rather than cold cathode fluorescent lamps, for backlighting. This advanced lighting system delivers brighter images while consuming less power. In addition to being more energy-efficient than regular LCD monitors, LED models are also slimmer. Staples® carries a wide selection of LED computer monitors from different brands.

Consider Display Panels When Comparing LED Monitors
LED-backlit monitors use different types of display panels. The most common ones are TN, VA, and IPS. TN (Twisted Nematic) and VA (Vertical Alignment) panels are more affordable than IPS (In-Plane Switching) panels and offer certain advantages. TN panels have the best refresh rates and response times. These make them preferable for use as gaming monitors. However, their contrast ratio, color accuracy, and viewing angles are not as good as VA and IPS panels. VA screens enjoy higher contrast ratios than other types of display panels but slower refresh rates. For an all-around excellent computer monitor, look for a model with an IPS panel.

IPS monitors deliver impressive color reproduction, viewing angles, and overall image quality. While they have slower response times than TN panels, they are still fast enough for most gaming PCs. There are variations of IPS technology. The most popular is Super PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching). A Samsung LED monitor is most likely to use a Super PLS panel since this is a proprietary technology developed by the brand.

Key Features to Look for When Shopping for LED Monitors
Pick a monitor size that is most appropriate for your work desk. The unit you select should not be too big as to cramp your workspace. Entry-level LED computer monitors usually measure 20 inches or smaller. These are big enough for basic computing needs. For an office computer, get a monitor with a screen size between 20 and 27 inches. Bigger models are ideal for gamers, multitaskers working with multiple open programs, graphics designers, and video editors. Resolution is another important factor to consider when shopping for LED displays. Look for a minimum resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. This HD resolution is good enough for 20-inch or smaller models. To enjoy high image quality on bigger units, only consider Full HD, Quad HD, and 4K resolutions.

What Are the Benefits of Ultrawide LED Monitors?
Regular monitors have an aspect ratio of 4:3. Most manufacturers now offer widescreen models with aspect ratios of 16:9 and 16:10. These are better for watching movies and playing games. For an even more impressive spread, choose an ultrawide monitor with an aspect ratio of 21:9. This delivers a sprawling view and is ideal for gaming and entertainment PCs. The wider screen estate is also good for viewing multiple windows side-by-side and splitting the screen between different applications.

What Features Should Be Considered When Comparing LED Monitors for Gaming PCs?
Look for a model with a minimum refresh rate of 60Hz and a response time of 5ms or less. High refresh rates and low response times maintain high picture quality during fast-action scenes by eliminating input lag, screen tearing, ghosting, and motion blur.

Are There Curved LED Monitors?
Yes. Curved LED displays have better viewing angles and less glare than flat ones. Large, ultrawide models benefit mostly from a curved design. Their curved edges make it possible for users to see their entire screens without turning too much in their seats.
