Best Computer Monitors In India (2018)
As monitors being one of the important components of a Desktop computer, we at dopemobiles felt this itself is a subject worthy of an article. So here we are, presenting to you the 5 best computer monitors that you can buy in the Indian market.
1. Samsung LU28E590DS/XL
Best 4K Monitor
- Suitable for gaming and multitasking
- Detailed and crisp visuals
- Bright display
The Samsung LU28E590DS/XL is a 27.8-inch 4K UHD monitor that delivers sharper images and true to life colour accuracy at a premium price. With its 8 million approximate pixels on the screen, this monitor delivers great results while gaming as well as during media consumption.
One of the USP of this device is its PIP 2.0 technology. PIP means Picture In Picture. This feature enables you to open two apps side by side and perform actions simultaneously. This is especially useful when, for example, if you want to watch a video and work on your seminar presentation at the same time.
This 4K UHD Samsung monitor features two HDMI ports and a display port. This will let you hook this monitor to your gaming consoles and other devices. The narrow bezel and the T shaped stand will blend with any type of home decor seamlessly.
This monitor features a 1 ms response time. For normal users, these numbers don’t matter but for gamers, it’s of utmost importance. Response time is the time between user action, like clicking on a mouse button, and its resultant action on display.
For gaming, the response time has to be minimal so that the gamers can execute precision movements within no time. Also, this display can achieve a brightness of up to 370 nits which will provide vivid results even in bright environments.
Samsung provides a 3-year onsite warranty on this monitor as well.

2. Samsung LC24F390FHWXXL
Best Curved Monitor
- Best for an immersive viewing experience
- No noticeable frame drops
- Power efficient
The Samsung LC24F390FHWXXL is a 23.6-inch curved full HD monitor offered at an aggressive price tag. This monitor has a VA panel that’s usually less prominent among the display types available in the market.
The VA panels offer deep blacks and great contrast levels compared to the TN and IPS panels. These panels consume less power during the operation as well.
The advantage of the curved display over the flat panels is that when viewed from an optimal distance, these panels provide a much more realistic immersive experience due to the curvature of the field of view.
Samsung has integrated the AMD FreeSync technology on this monitor. This will let the frames execute smoothly by synchronizing the screen refresh rate with the frame rate of the content on the screen.
We’d recommend hardcore gamers to stay away from this monitor. The response rate of 4ms isn’t much beneficial for gaming. This monitor mainly suits for media consumption and editing and does a very good job at that.
Samsung has integrated an eye saver mode on this product for limiting the blue light emission that will reduce strain on your eyes. This mode also results in providing a better sleep at night after a long TV watching session.

3. LG 22MP68VQ
Best Value For Money
- Best for reading
- True to nature colours
- Memory presets for different users
The LG 22MP68VQ is a 22-inch full HD monitor that offers fantastic viewing angles and colour reproduction.
Priced under Rs.10,000, this LG monitor is one of the best value for money monitors out there in the market. The IPS LCD technology provides excellent viewing angles and the narrow bezels around the display provides a seamless viewing experience.
The LG 22MP68VQ is capable of producing output that matches 99% of sRGB. This means that the colours represented on the screen are much closer to the real-life colour that the camera had captured while recording the visual.
There is a dedicated reading mode on this monitor that cancels the blue light emission from the display and reduces screen flicker.
The option to add various memory presets with different options is a great bonus. If the monitor is being used by multiple people, this lets them have their preferred choice at the click of a button.
This monitor suits almost every type of users except gamers.
LG provides a 3-year warranty on this monitor. With quality components used, the chance of accidental damage from external events like lightning or unexpected voltage surges are a rarity.

4. HP 22F
Best Design Pick
- Best to suit stylish interiors
- Excellent contrast levels
- Extensive service center network
The HP 22F has an IPS LED display that has good viewing angles. The images and videos will look the same, no matter from what angle you watches it. This display can have brightness up to 300 nits.
If you are planning to use your computer for a lot of text related works such as e-mailing or document editing, the HP 22F is your best bet. With 1000:1 static contrast ratio, the blacks and whites remain distinct and the colours are pleasing to the eyes.
This monitor comes with a 60Hz true refresh rate. An increased refresh rate means less motion blur. This makes the monitor a good panel for media consumption as well. Movies and sports can be watched without having any frame drops or jitters.
The slim design looks stunning from the front. The chin bezel where the HP logo is embossed adds a distinct premium feel to this monitor. The HP 22F is one of the best-looking monitors in the market.
This product comes with 3-years of warranty. HP has its service centres all over the country and thus prompt service is guaranteed.

5. Samsung LS22F355FH
Entry Level Pick
- Suited for budget constrained consumers
- Reliable product from a reputed brand
- Cumbersome controls
This monitor has a TN panel that’s slightly inferior to the IPS panels that we have reviewed earlier in this article. The viewing angles are limited and the colour accuracy should be expected to take a hit. However, this full HD panel does provide images with decent sharpness.
Since the TN panels feature better refresh rate than a conventional IPS monitor, there is considerably less motion blur while watching fast moving visuals on this display. The effect of 5ms response time, although not great of gaming is negated with this improved refresh rate.
This monitor comes with an HDMI and a VGA port for connectivity. The HDMI cable is not a standard accessory with this monitor and has to be purchased separately.
The single button on the back works for virtually everything. This makes the screen controls such as brightness and contrast adjustment cumbersome to perform.
However, for the price at which it is in the market, the Samsung LS22F355FH provides you with a decent full HD viewing experience with no additional bells and whistles to root for.
