3 Things to Look for in Back-To-School Tech

Whether you’re a techie glued to your desktop at all hours of the day or simply need a device to edit documents and watch pixel perfect video, everyone needs respectable computer equipment. Chances are, the monitor you’re using right now came bundled with the desktop PC you bought a couple of years ago. But did you know there are new models that can dramatically improve your productivity and viewing experience?

1. Multi-tasking: You can resize windows and use split screen, which divides the display into multiple sections for different tasks. Advanced options include state-of-the-art display features like four types of picture-in picture multiple window displays, so you can easily work on several documents at a time or type notes while watching presentations or videos. Gamers will delight with game mode, which offers optimal first person shooter and real-time strategy settings. Freesync also provides seamless movement between the graphic card’s frame rate and the monitor’s refresh rate.

2. 4K Resolution and colour accuracy: 4K monitors offer four times the resolution of full HD, and are a must-have for creative students and design and photography professionals. These monitors have exceptional detail and are well-suited for tasks where shadow, gray-scale, and crisp colour fine points are essential. Additionally, the higher the resolution, the more information that can be displayed on the screen. A curved screen also delivers an immersive experience.

3. Size: PC monitors generally run anywhere from 17 to 34 inches. If you’re looking to replace a dual-screen system, consider buying a wider single monitor, like the new 21:9 monitor from LG that features an ultra-wide screen so you can view more. It offers enough real estate to ensure that you can watch videos while viewing multi-page documents in tiled or side-by-side formats.
