Best LED Monitors For Good Quality Images

Although there was little improvement in Display technology before the last decade, recent years have seen a quantum leap. It has hardly been 10 years since LCD displays became a fad but they have already been displaced by the LED’s. Even LED’s are progressing so fast that, at every new tech congregation, a company comes with a modification that has a huge impact on the industry.

Some of the recent leaps in display technology are the introduction of OLED’s and QLED’s which has started a new war between tech giants like Samsung, LG, Sony etc. In this overload of choices and options, it has become quite challenging to make a choice, so here is an article to help you out.

Our best selling LED monitors article, will give you the details about types of monitors available in India , along with how monitors function. We also discussed in brief the importance of panel used , types of LED Monitors and tips for buying LED monitors along with top 10 recommendations. Read to explore more about LED monitors for PC/Computers.

Types of Monitors

  • Circle
    CRT Monitors

CRT technology was the pioneer behind bringing TV’s and computer monitors to our home when they first started becoming common. They are called so because CRT is an abbreviation for Cathode Ray Tube. A CRT monitor usually has 3 tubes behind the screen for the projection of an image. Cathode ray tubes are nothing but vacuum tubes. Where they differ is that they have electron guns and fluorescent screen on either ends.

LCD’s are the next technology that came in line to replace CRT’s and they were very successful at it. Within a decade, everyone replaced fat and ugly looking CRT monitors for sleek and slim LCD’s. LCD uses a special state of matter called Liquid Crystals to produce images. Hence they are abbreviated as LCD (liquid crystal display). Along with liquid crystals, polarized light and polarizing glasses also play a role in image projection.

    LED monitors

LED’s are the latest display technology currently being used. They are quite similar to LCD’s in not only looks, but share a lot of common attributes. LED stands for light emitting diodes and they are called so because the backlight for the panel is provided by LED’s rather than CFL’s as in LCD panels. Also, some companies offer curved LED panels to offer a theater-like experience at home.

How LED Monitors Work?

A monitor works on technologies that are very different for each type. As an example, let us consider the CRT’s which was one of the first mass-produced type of monitor panel economically viable for household applications. This uses cathode ray tubes to project or draw images on the fluorescent screen at one end of the CRT. The other end has electron guns present, which projects electrons at a very fast rate. Due to the large size of these tubes and the curved shape of the fluorescent screen, the CRT monitors are not aesthetically pleasing to the eye as compared to modern day monitors and have been phased out.

Another incumbent type of technology no longer being used for monitors or TV displays but which was instrumental in taking forward display technology is the Plasma monitor panel. They are called so because of their use of inert gases inside the monitor to produce images. Gases like Neon, Xenon, Argon are excited to such an extent that they change their state to plasma. When in that state, the matter emits ultraviolet light which is invisible to the human eye. However, to overcome this objective, phosphorus mineral present in each cell is absorbed and emitted back into a spectrum that is visible to the naked eye.

LED’S and LCD’S are other types of display panels that are currently the most popular and most advanced displays in terms of technology. Both of them use almost the same technology, however, what is different is the backlighting system that produces the polarizing light, that illuminates the matter and ultimately produces the images required. The advantage of these modern panels is their aesthetic looks, low power consumption, less occupied space, and their cost-effectiveness. These days LCD’s and LED’s are differentiated as active matrix displays and passive matrix displays based on the number of transistors used to display the image. Active matrix displays are preferred due to their overall better performance in every aspect.

The common factor between LCD and LED has always been the presence of liquid crystals being used to manipulate light from the source to behave in a way so as to produce the required images. The important aspect of LCD and LED monitors is the display controller which is responsible for deciding what images need to be displayed. It is called so because it mainly controls 2 things, that is the voltage and the backlight. It gets signals from the adapter present on the internal motherboard of the monitor.

The second important aspect is the backlight of the monitor, which is the deciding factor when deciding whether the monitor is an LCD or LED type. The LCD panel has cathode fluorescent lighting(CFL) as the backlight but a LED, as the name indicates has light emitting diode. Most monitors produced in the last couple of years have adopted LED’s because of the low cost of production as well as the low cost of operation.

Types of LED Monitors

  • Circle
    Direct-Lit LED Monitor

The direct lit LED monitors are the oldest type of LED monitors. It is a technology that is no longer being used because of the poor quality of images that it produces. The light emitting diodes are present just behind the screen but are very few in number to produce bright or rich images like the other types. The brightness levels of these type of monitors cannot be controlled and all LED’s present just emit white light which is converted into other colors through sub-pixels. The other disadvantage is the fatness of these monitors due to the need to occupy more space to diffuse the light

  • Circle
    Edge-Lit LED Monitor

As the name indicates, Edge lit LED monitors have the light emitting diodes present on the peripherals of the display. They can be present on the sides, the bottom, or on all edges of the monitor. They are the most commonly used type of LED monitors at present because they are not as sophisticated and costly as the full array display or don’t have an image quality as bad as the direct lit displays. Due to the presence of the LED’s on the edges of the display, they are one of the thinnest types of monitors available at present. However, the position of LED’s can also be a disadvantage as the edges are almost always more bright than the center of the display.

  • Circle
    Full Array LED Monitor

The last and the best type of LED displays at present are the full array LED’s, which have immense display quality but are also more costly than other traditional LED types. Since the cost is high, the number of users is also quite less. Just like direct-lit LED’s, the light emitting diodes are always present right behind the display panels. However, that is where the similarity ends. The number of LED’s present in full array displays is always substantially higher than the number present in direct-lit LED’s. This leads to a very bright display with very high contrast and number of colors.

Types Of LED Panels

  • Circle
    IPS Panel

IPS panels are the most recent advancements in terms of display panels. IPS stands for in panel switching. They provide the perfect balance in terms of viewing angles and response times. IPS panels have a crystal structure that is different compared to any other panel type. The liquid crystals are all arranged horizontally unlike TN and VA panels where crystals are also partially vertically arranged.

  • Circle
    TN Panel

TN panels are the second most used LED Panels at present. TN stands for twisted nematic panels because they twist the polarized light so that it is completely stopped or goes through another polarizer. The TN panel has a crystal structure that is aligned both horizontally and vertically. TN panels are very cheap and easy to produce and hence popular among the masses. Also, it is the preferred panel for gamers due to the low response time.

  • Circle
    VA Panel

VA panels are the middle ground when it comes to LED display panels. They have a picture quality better than TN panels but worse than IPS panels. The cost is also more than TN panels but less than IPS panels. The overall structure is very similar to that of TN panels but the crystal structure differs. The crystals are always aligned perpendicular and hence called Verticle Aligned displays. When a voltage is applied, the crystals change alignment to horizontal.

  • Circle
    OLED Panels

OLED’s are the latest type of display panels. The other panels are LCD displays with LED backlighting but OLED’s don’t use LCD technology at all and are truly LED monitors in every sense of the word.

AMOLED’s are nothing but OLED panels itself and AM stands for the Active matrix. All OLED’s use active matrix displays, so there really isn’t much difference. It uses organic polymers instead of liquid crystals and hence called Organic LED’s. OLED TV is thinner than convelntional LED as OLED TV’s organic subpixel generates their own light and do not require a backlight unit.

  • Circle
    QLED Panels

QLED displays are the latest fad when it comes to displaying technology and is considered an improvement over OLED’s. They basically work like any other OLED panel but use quantum dots to improve the picture quality even further. Black levels, color gamut, viewing angles are the best that a display can offer in the modern world.

Other than these types, there is also a MicroLED panel which is slowly gaining ground. However, that display technology is currently restricted to just TV’s.

LED Monitor Buyer’s guide

  • Circle
    Panel technology

Panel technology is one of the biggest deciding factors when it comes to buying a LED monitor. Each user has an important requirement that they will need in a monitor. For a gamer, a TN panel will be required to get a good response time, however, a movie buff will need an OLED or QLED display to get the best image quality.

  • Circle
    Screen Size

The screen size is the second biggest factor to decide upon. LED monitors come in a variety of sizes but most fall in the 15-30 inches range. If you are a typical user or need the monitor for an office then a small display will suffice, but for multimedia consumption or graphics editing, a big display size may be needed.

  • Circle
    Resolution

The ratio of number pixels on the horizontal axis to the number of pixels on the verticle axis is called the resolution of the display. The resolution is the biggest factor in deciding the quality of the display. The higher the resolution, the better will be the display quality and pixel density of the display.

  • Circle
    Viewing Angle

In the incumbent CRT’s, viewing angles were not an issue as every monitor had good visibility from the sides. However, earlier generation LCD’s didn’t have good viewing angles and hence it became an issue. Companies have tried their best and some monitors have a viewing angle as wide as 178°. However, TN panels are worst in terms of viewing angles and buyers should be aware of this before buying.

  • Circle
    Ports

The monitor may be the main part of the computer, but it is useless without other parts. These other parts are connected to the monitor through ports. The ports required basically are the VGA and USB. The other optional ports are Thunderbolt, HDMI, DVI and display port, which is generally used for multimedia entertainment.

  • Circle
    Color capabilities

If you are someone who is going to use the computer for a lot of graphics intensive tasks like gaming, video editing, image editing, graphics etc, then color capabilities become an integral part of the monitor. The things you need to look out for are color gamut, contrast levels etc. Higher the levels, the better.

  • Circle
    Gaming capabilities

If you are someone who will use your computer for playing games and can’t afford expensive gaming consoles, then it’s paramount that you look at the color capabilities and the response time of the monitor. After the hardware, the above-mentioned things are the biggest deciding factors when assembling a gaming PC.

  • Circle
    Curved vs Flat

Curved displays are the latest fad in the computer and TV industry. Manufacturers are rushing to roll out their own version of the curved display monitors. Curved displays provide the perfect setting for watching a movie or other entertainment tasks because they try to provide a theater-like experience on a budget.

  • Circle
    Warranty

Monitor displays can be fragile things. There can be manufacturing defects or you yourself can damage it unintentionally. In such situations, warranty becomes an important aspect that you would need to keep in mind before making a purchase. Most monitors these days come with the standard 3-year warranty, but some other companies do offer a comprehensive 5-year warranty too.

However, where this product differentiates itself is the features present. Although the specification sheet is nothing extraordinary compared to others, its features are what makes it stand out. For example, it has a display port which even higher-end models don’t offer. It also has MHL ( Mobile High Definition Link ) port for connecting with android devices. There are even more features that a consumer needs to be aware of. Here they are

Main Features

  • The 12369MV comes with a 23-inch panel which is slightly bigger than most displays in this price range but smaller than higher-end models
  • The refresh rate of the screen is close to 60hz just like most LED monitors
  • The response time is commendable at 5ms
  • Circle
    The aspect ratio is 16:9 like most monitors
  • Circle
    The maximum brightness of the screen is 250 candelas
  • Circle
    The native contrast ratio is 1000:1 for the monitor
  • Circle

  • Circle
    The viewing angles of the display is 178 degrees both vertically and horizontally

PROS (What we liked)

  • The design of the monitor is spellbounding even though it isn’t the slimmest or sleekest. It has a straight design with minimal curves which many people would like.
  • The additional display port and MHL connectivity for Android devices which is not found in other monitors around this price range, really make it user-friendly
  • The response time of 5ms means that the monitor is more than capable of handling heavy games
  • Check
    Quite a big screen compared to other monitors in the same price range

CONS (What we didn't like)

  • Like many other devices in the same category, it doesn’t have something that makes it different from the rest of the options
  • Exclamation Triangle
    AOC is not a very well known brand which may put off some potential customers
  • Exclamation Triangle
    AOC service centers are not widely available in case something goes wrong

10. Benq GL2070 LED Monitor

BenQ GW2070

In the last place on this list is another product from BenQ. As discussed before, BenQ provides the most value for money products when it comes to computer accessories. Unlike other monitors on this list, the GL2070 isn’t a top end or even a mid-level monitor with the biggest specs or highest number of features.

It is a monitor that is focused at the lower end of the price spectrum so that first-time computer users or office owners can use it for their operations. So it is safe to say that the GW2070 is the best low budget LED monitor available today in India. The USP of this monitor is the fact that it offers so much more features and specs than other monitors in its price range.

Main Features

  • The monitor comes with a 19.5 inch which is more than most other monitors in the same price range
  • The monitor employs a cheap TN panel rather than IPS or VA panel like higher end models to keep cost low
  • The resolution of the display is 1600*900 pixels which translate to an HD panel and not a Full-HD one
  • Circle
    The maximum brightness of the display is 200 candelas
  • Circle
    The native contrast of the display is 600:1
  • Circle
    The maximum viewing angle of the display is 90 degree horizontally and 65 degrees vertically
  • Circle
    The maximum response time is an impressive 5ms but since it is a low-end display, gaming won’t be enjoyable
  • Circle
    The aspect ratio is the standard 16:9
  • Circle
    The display can render about 16.7 million colors
  • Circle
    The color gamut is 72% NTSC
  • Circle
    Flicker-free and low blue light mode available
  • Circle
    Support for DVI, D-Sub and VGA port, which is great at this price point

PROS (What we liked)

  • Incredible value for money at such a price point
  • Offers DVI, D-Sub ports even at this low price
  • The response time of the display is impressive at 5 ms but the monitor is not built for high-level gaming

CONS (What we didn't like)

  • Since it is a TN panel, the display quality won’t be good and it is not suitable for multimedia
  • Exclamation Triangle
    BenQ is not a very famous brand and service centers are hard to find.

Conclusion

So that was the complete list related to best-LED monitors that you can buy in India. In short, it can be said that there is very large variety of products out there in the market and it is easy to get lost in the sea of options.

To make the decision even easier for a potential customer, it is safe to say that if you have a big budget, the HP 24ES is the best option. If you don’t want to spend a lot but do want all the features that a higher-end model will offer, then the Dell 2218H is the way to go. However, if your budget is quite small, then the BenQ GW2070 is the best your money can buy.
