As many of us continue to work from home, we’re still trying to figure out new ways to make it more comfortable and less monotonous. New planners and cool desk gadgets make us feel like we have our lives just a little bit more together, but there’s one accessory your home office setup is missing that will make a world of difference: a computer monitor.
If you devote multiple hours a day to staring at a tiny laptop screen, you likely have at least 30 tabs open at one time (like me) and spend a decent amount of time jumping between each one. A larger standalone monitor gives you the ability to view more web pages, documents and other app screens while working on a different or accompanying task.
And if you’re worried about it taking up additional space on your desk, fear not. Many of the monitors available today come in a sleek, slim design and some are even compatible with the VESA standard, a universal design that ensures compatibility with common wall-mounting hardware for monitors.
Having a monitor to go along with your laptop also comes in handy if you’re a dedicated gamer, as the graphics, visuals and game-specific features make for a better playing experience.
But regardless of what tasks you need a computer monitor for, one thing’s for sure: They help to enhance your day-to-day and help make working (or gaming) from home just a little more exciting. Below, we rounded up the best computer monitors to upgrade your desk arrangement, according to glowing Amazon reviews.
