Ultra-wide monitors are great for watching movies, viewing photos, or playing video games, but terrible for reading web pages and long documents. That’s why many of them can be rotated—but why waste all that energy turning a screen when you can build an impossibly nerdy, over-engineered monitor stand to do it for you?
2016 might be the year of VR headsets and all, but some people still enjoy looking at regular screens. And the 30-inch, pro-level 4K OLED display Dell just announced looks like one hell of an upgrade.
In the early days of personal computing—think UNIX early—text was often white or green on a black screen. That didn't last long, of course, but there's a little-known reason that those shadowy screens weren't ideal for users. And it has to do with your poor eyesight.
For those who like to really spoil their eyes, Dell's new 27-inch monitor services them a whopping resolution of 5120×2880. That works out to 14.7 million pixels in total, and 218 PPI.

Priced at an extremely competitive $699, Samsung's new 28" 4K monitor packs in two HDMI 1.4 ports, a Displayport, and audio out, all while leaving a very small footprint on your desk. It also has a "picture-in-picture" mode which allows you to plug in two computers and see both video feeds by dividing the screen in…
As you may have noticed, there are a million activity trackers out there right now. Most of them are glorified pedometers. The upper tier add altimeters, heart rate monitors, and sleep-tracking to the equation. But what if you don't just want to be reminded to work out—you want to work out better, safer, and more…
These days, any mention of 4K immediately conjures up images of crystal-clear definition—-and absurdly exorbitant price tags. Well, that's quickly changing. Dell's new UltraSharp 28-inch 4K screen can be yours for less than $700 when it ships later this month, and it's not alone.
Curved TVs—we've seen those. Curved monitors for your computer? I just saw the first one in the world. I played games on it, and it's definitely a great technology to be developing. But I hope they keep developing it.

This, as you might be able to tell, is no normal desk set-up. Designed to provide the ultimate in both comfort and productivity, we introduce to you the MWE Lab Emperor 1510 LX work station—and if you have to ask how much it costs, you probably can't afford it.
These days, multiple monitors are becoming the norm instead of the exception. And with most interfaces designed to capture your attention—everywhere and at all costs—the constant barrage of blinking windows, beeping notifications, and bouncing icons can be distracting if not entirely overwhelming. New Windows…
If you don't like the aesthetics of a set of speakers sitting on either side of your monitor, and can't stand wearing headphones, maybe HP's new 27-inch Envy monitor will appeal to your finicky demands. Like with its laptops, the company has integrated a set of Dr. Dre-approved Beats Audio speakers into the monitor,…
Sharp is showing off its Igzo 4K monitor at CES, but so what—everyone's showing off a 4K something or other. Except Sharp's actually getting ready to sell these things.
Using touch is awesome with Windows 8, but to do that, you've got to have a screen with touch. Duh. And unless you've got a brand new laptop, you're out of luck. But Lenovo's got something for you: a portable touchscreen monitor.
LG's EA93 monitor is claims to be the first 21:9 aspect ratio monitor the world has ever seen—which makes it a multitasker's wet dream.
There's nothing quite like a good prank, and what prank is better than convincing innocent people that they are about to meet their bitter, messy end?

So far, Sony and Samsung have dominated IFA with a torrent of magical TVs and new phones. But quietly, LG is showing off one of the coolest monitors we've ever seen.
Dell is dropping a nice new 27-inch monitor that isn't too spendy—the UltraSharp U2713HM. It's Dell's first to use AH-IPS, or advanced high-performance IPS, a technology that's supposed to improve on both color and clarity.
