Consumers can choose between LCD and LED monitors for their computing needs. LCD monitors, which have been around longer, use a fluorescent panel, twisting crystal lights, and cold cathode technology to illuminate a computer screen. The cold cathode releases electrons that turn into ultraviolet light to make CFL backlighting.
LED monitors use light diodes- instead of cold-cathode and fluorescent technology- to brighten a computer monitor. LED monitors offer better color quality, clarity, and have faster refresh rates, which is good for gamers. They are also the green option, as they use less energy than LCD models.
Dell’s 34 inch UltraSharp U3415W is the best LED monitor on the market right now, with a panoramic view on an ultra-wide curved screen that boasts a cinematic WQHD 3440 x 1440 resolution. Its 10-bit panel operates with 1.07 billion colors, which give a full Adobe RGB gamut.
The large monitor is ideal for multi-tasking. It offers Picture by Picture and Picture in Picture features to maximize potential on its wide screen.It can display content from two separate PCs via USB 3.0 upstream ports so there’s no need for two monitors. You can comfortably fit all of your work from two different devices on the UltraSharp if you have the desk space.
The UltraSharp also features dual 9W integrated speakers to compliment its crystal-clear picture. It comes on a height-adjustable stand that can swivel and tilt, or it can be mounted on the via the standard VESA attachment on its back.
