7 Best Business and Professional Monitor 2015

So much of our computer work happens with our eyes. We can have the best PC with the right processing horsepower, big storage space, ergonomic mouse and keyboard, and a comfy office chair, but if the monitor is no good, productivity and experience will definitely suffer. If you want to get more things done, you definitely need a display that can keep up with you. This includes the right size, resolution, and cost.

Price is usually the first thing we consider in choosing a new monitor, but there are more qualities that are just as important. Size and resolution for example, plays a huge role in daily office use. Larger monitors, offer more screen real estate needed for multitasking, working on larger spreadsheets, multiple apps, windows and files. Resolution on the other hand, depends on the kind of work you usually do. 1920x1080p or Full HD has been the standard for basic office work. But if your job revolves around putting together graphic designs and various visuals, then it may be worth it to invest for something better, such as 2560x1440p resolution or WQHD (Wide Quad High Definition) or even future-proof your workstation with 4K UHD (Ultra High Definition) display.

Also, since you will be using your computer for hours, every day, you need to consider the ergonomics and versatility of your display. This includes stand adjustability (swivel, tilt, height adjust, and pivot), input options (HDMI, DVI, VGA or DisplayPort), USB ports for easy file transfers, connect your peripherals and charging of your mobile devices, built-in speakers to save desk space, and lastly, VESA mounting holes to mount monitors to desk stands or wall mounts with fully articulating arms or for dual monitor or multiple monitor setups.

Whether you’re working for a company or working on your own at the comforts of you home office, getting the business monitor that perfectly fits your work and suits your preferences will help you do well on a daily basis. Here are 7 best business monitors you can find in the market today.

 

NEC MultiSync EA274WM

Like the other models from the EA series, the NEC MultiSync EA274WM continues to impress. This business-class monitor uses IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel to deliver robust colors and good grayscale performance. It may not have the best color accuracy right out-of-the-box, but it can certainly provide sharp images and intricate shadows and highlights, along with incredible viewing angles. It is packed with generous set of I/O ports, along with five USB ports, making it quite a convenient workstation partner. It comes with a fully adjustable stand as well.

It doesn’t come with a cheap price tag, and the skewed green may require some calibration, but its overall performance is quite impressive, and comes with tons of business-centric features.

Dell UltraSharp UZ2315H

Dell is one of the most trusted names in business and office settings, their affordable business monitors can definitely stand the rigors of daily use. Dell UltraSharp UZ2315H is another one that lives up to this reputation. It is the cheapest monitor in this list, but it has excellent color accuracy, wide viewing angles and strong set of features. It is best for users who do a lot of multimedia use and video conferencing. It uses IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel for rich and accurate colors right out of the box. It also comes with VESA-compliant mounting holes for use with third party ergonomic solutions, such as desk stands, desk mounts with fully articulating arms and wall mounts.

Pixel response is a little slower, which can be an issue for hardcore gamers. Also, grayscale performance has slightly mixed performance.

Asus PB287Q

The Asus PB287Q is the second most affordable professional-grade monitor in this list. It may still be expensive compared to most mid-tier monitors, but the 28-inch TN (Twisted Nematic) panel which can display outstanding Ultra High Definition (UHD) 3840x2160p resolution, with fast pixel response, solid overall performance and nice set of features can easily make the price reasonable. Out-of-the-box color accuracy is generally good, with some issues of skewed green and so-so viewing angle, which is expected in TN-based panel monitors. Similarly, the 1ms pixel response makes it great for hardcore gaming, as it can run even the most demanding games smoothly.

This display is packed with office and work-centric features to improve user productivity. The stand is fully adjustable for workstation comfort (tilt, swivel, height adjust and pivot) and comes with VESA-standard mounting holes for use with third party ergonomic solutions.

Apple Thunderbolt Display

Apple is known for sleek design and despite its huge 27-inch size, the Apple Thunderbolt Display is no exception. It delivers solid performance in both picture and audio quality that any Apple fanboy will easily appreciate. The IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel runs at 2560x1440p resolution, and its bright colors are accurate, while grays are well-defined even at its darkest shade, making it an excellent choice for image details. It also brags its wider viewing angle, along with Thunderbolt high-speed connectivity.

Its screen however, suffers from reflections, which can be a problem in highly-lit environment. Some motion blurs are pretty obvious, but then again, its screen is not meant for gaming. Also, the hefty price tag is something worth considering.

NEC MultiSync PA322UHD

If you’re looking for a professional-grade monitor with a massive 32-inch screen, then the NEC MultiSync PA322UHD should be in your short list of choices. The 32-inch IGZO panel delivers excellent color and grayscale performance at 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160p) resolution, along with wide viewing angles. It comes with 14-bit Look Up Table (LUT) for more accurate color calibration and wider color-gamut coverage (99.2% of Adobe RGB spectrum). The best thing about this product is its 4-year warranty, something we don’t usually find even in highest rated monitors in the market.

As expected this bulky business monitor doesn’t come with affordable price tag.

NEC MultiSync EA244UHD

The NEC MultiSync EA244UHD packs excellent color and grayscale performance with crisp Ultra HD imagery and excellent color accuracy. Equipped with AH-IPS (Advanced High Performance In-Plane Switching) panel, this 24-inch screen can deliver 3840x2160p (Ultra HD) resolution. It also comes equipped with loads of graphic-centric features. It also comes with fully adjustable stand for optimum ergonomics, along with plenty of management settings.

As with most professional-grade monitors, this product comes with a hefty price tag. But its high price can be easily justified by is performance and quality.

HP DreamColor Z27x

The HP DreamColor Z27x is the best professional-grade monitor in this list. With 1.07 billion colors in its Dream Color engine, factory-calibrated gamut and embedded calibration software, it definitely fits all aspects any graphics professional may need. 

Thanks to the Advanced High-Performance In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel, it has no problems delivering accurate colors and excellent grayscale performance. It delivers outstanding performance across the board, and fully equipped for professional use. It runs at 2560x1400p resolution and comes with a generous set of I/O ports, including dual DisplayPort connections and six USB hubs. Professional users with meticulous needs can further enhance image quality through the integrated calibration software.

As most professional-grade displays, it’s quite expensive. And like most massive 27-inch displays, it lacks the auto-rotate support. Good thing it comes with VESA mounting holes.
