#1 BENQ EW3270U
The BenQ EW3270U is a great option for those with limited budgets. This monitor has a 32 inch screen with a 4k resolution, but it uses a VA panel that has a higher contrast ratio. It has an overall good build quality, but the main downside is its ergonomics, as there’s only tilt adjustment available. Viewing angles are decent, its out-of-the-box color accuracy is good, and it supports a wide color gamut. The backlight is flicker-free to help reduce eye strain, and there’s support for FreeSync variable refresh rate if you want to use the monitor for some gaming on the side.
#2 Dell U3818DW UltraSharp UltraSharp UltraSharp UltraSharp UltraSharp UltraSharp UltraSharp UltraSharp UltraCurved USB-C Monitor 38-Inch
This Dell monitor is stunning with its InfinityEdge 38-inch screen. This wide canvas allows you the ability to work with multiple windows simultaneously, making it ideal for graphic design and other creative fields. It’s also suitable for fighting zombies or charging into battle with its sRGB colors.
#3 LG UltraFine 24MD4KL-B
Fledgling content creators will find a great value in the LG UltraFine 24MD4KL-B, if they’re looking for the best USB-C monitor that won’t break the bank. This 4K display’s high resolution and color accuracy get things done while its USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 is a boon for Apple fans. It’s still pretty pricey, especially for everyday users. However, it’s a pretty good purchase for content creators, especially if you’re used to more expensive models. However, you will need to compromise on a smaller screen size or thicker bezels. If you’re working with a smaller desk space, this is definitely ideal.
#4 MSI Prestige PS341WU
If you’re looking for a monitor that’s a cut above the 4K norm, then you’ve got the MSI Prestige PS341WU. It is not easy to present a flawless 4K monitor. However, this monitor does it with the massive 5K2K native Resolution (and 21.9 ultrawide aspect ratio of its 34-inch IPS screen). It doesn’t come cheap, but it does have a great feature set to make up for that, including a Nano IPS panel with DCI-P3 color gamut, HDR support and comprehensive connectivity. All that packed in a beautiful white aesthetic, and you’ve got yourself one of the best USB-C monitors of 2020.
#5 BenQ PD2720U 27 inch 4K
BenQ’s DesignVue 4K Display wins over graphic designers, photographers and videographers. It was built for you. It’s easy to switch between different display modes, including split-screen.
This screen is perfect for high-quality resolution. The blacks and reds are deep and bright. The whites are so bright that you almost need sunglasses. I did some work in Dark mode for a while. This reduced the brightness but kept the screen clear.
#6 MSI Opx MAG272CQR
Gaming monitors don’t necessarily have to be expensive to be good. Take the MSI Optix MAG272CQR. It offers excellent features like a 165Hz refreshrate, 1ms reply time, AMD FreeSync, and a curved shape. It won’t set you back as much as other gaming monitors out there, making it ideal for gamers with a limited budget. Of course, there are compromises to be made: it’s only got a VA panel and it’s not 4K. However, it’s a great (and fast) all-rounder that’s best for not just gaming, but also productivity and creative workloads.
#7 LG 29UM59 – A
The LG 29UM59A is our favorite budget monitor for MacBook Pro. This is a decent office monitor with plenty of screen real estate to open a few different windows, plus the good viewing angles means you can share your work easily with your co-workers. The colors are accurate, but the monitor doesn’t support a wide variety of colors.
Although this monitor is excellent at handling reflections, its peak brightness is only alright. If you work in bright offices, it may be difficult to see the screen clearly. This monitor is not recommended for viewing dark content in dark rooms. The contrast is poor and the black uniformity is horrible. It does have a great gray uniformity that is useful for content with large, uniform areas, such as Word documents.
Overall, the monitor is decently priced for the MacBook Pro. However, it should only be used in well-lit rooms.
