How we test

Overall score

  • Display performance (70%) - assessed on colour, brightness and contrast, text, surface reflections, angles of view, and the quality of the monitor’s blu-ray images.
  • Ease of use (30%) - stability, port access, height adjustment, on-screen menus, tilt, controls, hardware installation, and the manual.

All monitors were tested using their out-of-the-box settings. We set the colour mode to sRGB (where that was possible) and let the monitors warm up for 30 minutes before each test.
