There are many different types of computer monitors available today. There are flat panel displays, which are very popular among professionals. They provide the most comfortable viewing experience due to their low profile. Flat panels offer excellent color reproduction, contrast ratio and brightness levels. However, they have some drawbacks such as poor viewing angles and limited screen real estate.

Another type of display is a multi-monitor setup. Multi-monitors are usually used by students or those working from home. A multi-monitor setup allows for more screen real estate. It is easier to view multiple pages of content without having to scroll as much.

It is especially useful for design professionals such as graphic and web designers.

It is important for a monitor to match your eyesight and comfort level. Most monitors today come in 16:9 aspect ratio. Some also come in a 16:10 aspect ratio. Professionals such as graphic and web designers usually prefer the latter.

The 16:10 monitors give more vertical room, which is useful when working with code or spreadsheets.

Monitors also come in two different types of technology: LCD and LED. Both of these monitors come in either the flat panel or tube style monitors. Liquid crystal displays (LCD) are perhaps the most common type of monitors today. They are lightweight and more energy efficient compared to their predecessor, the cathode ray tube (CRT).

LEDs are a bit newer than the LCD monitors. They offer brighter images and use less power.
