This video is all about monitors. Specifically picking monitors that are good for design. There isn’t really a “best” monitor for all people, so the purpose of this video is to describe and review the different specifications of monitors so you can decide what’s best for you. It will cover things like resolution, hz, refresh rate, and the input types they allow.

Once you know what to look out for in the technical specifications of a monitor, you’ll be able to figure out what’s best for you long after the monitors shown in this video are relevant. Knowledge is power! Technology always changes, but the core ways of evaluating what’s good often stays the same.

Have any questions about what you’ve seen in the video? Feel free to leave a comment!

  1. I'm sick of this "gaming" trend. Every time i google to find a computer or a monitor for design or anything tech related all i get is gaming this, gaming that…Thanks for making this video, it's hard to find any solid info about tech for design these days…

  2. Nice video! :^)
    I'm a bit confused about something that was not mentioned in this video: Color Bit depth/ the amount of colors the screen can reproduce. The standard is 8 bit per channel (~17 million) while Pro monitors have 10 bit per channel (~1 billion).
    I thought that the 10bit feature would be great for working with Photoshop but turns out consumer class graphics cards don't support Ps in 10bit mode.
    So I thought is it really worth it then? Especially considering that I can set Ps to work in 16bpc mode and the result is the same quality. Only difference is that I don't see it.
    Or should I consider investing in a better sRGB gamut coverage? And is it worth to buy a 100% sRGB over a 99% ?
