What to Look For in a Work-From-Home Monitor?

Computers are so important to everyone’s working life that it is crucial to have the ideal work-from-home setup. When purchasing a monitor, you need to check its price and performance level.

You also have to check the connectivity options, image quality, color accuracy, color gamut, as well as its compatibility with other devices.

Here are the considerations to look into when purchasing monitors for working-from-home:

Wide Screen

How wide your office monitor will be would depend on your available workspace at home. If you have a limited desk space, you can opt for a 24-inch monitor.

If you have a large home office, it would be ideal to set up a 27” or 32” monitor. You may even go for a 34-inch ultrawide monitor.


You may still prefer your laptop over anything else. However, getting a secondary screen for work can be a game-changer. A secondary work monitor with a  1080P Full HD display is great for video conferencing.

If you are working with rich texts and a high DPI display, then go for a 4K UHD monitor. Purchasing Full HD computer monitors are cheaper now and purchasing two monitors will not hurt your budget.

If you don't have the budget for a UHD monitor, you can use a 2K (QuadHD) monitor if you are working with spreadsheets, high-density data, or software with a complex user interface.

Easy to Use for Multi-Tasking

For a stable display, your monitor should have built-in digital connections like HDMI, DisplayPort (DP), and USB C port. Most adaptors for DVI, USB Type C port, HDMI, and DisplayPort are inexpensive. They are also ready to be plugged in and used.

Most computers make use of a USB C port for faster connectivity. You can read more about the advantages of using USB C ports in the blog.

Connectivity makes work more efficient. If your computer’s processing unit has a DP output, choose a monitor that has a DP input. The same applies to other connectivity options.

Using an External Monitor

If you have a laptop, you may notice that there are limitations to using it the whole day. You can experience neck and back pains due to bending over and looking at the small screen size.

Aside from having one monitor, you now have the option to use a dual-display configuration. If you are using your laptop and plug in an external monitor, the monitor functions in mirror mode. This means that both screens display the same images.

For more efficient work, you can use both screens at the same time. With this functionality, two full-screen apps can run simultaneously.

This type of setup helps increase your productivity. If you plan on doing this setup, you may use a laptop stand to make the laptop and your external monitor at the same height.
