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?
I moved a few weeks ago, so I had to break down and re-set up my workspace. When I did, I replaced my dual-display setup with a new 34" ultrawide LG curved display. It’s had its quirks, but now I’m not sure I could ever go back. Here’s why, and why it’s worked so well for me.
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.
Look, sometimes you spend $709 on a gaming monitor and wind up really happy with your purchase. I’m not saying it happens every time, but it happened this time.
Dell’s 27” 4K IPS display is the early voting leader in Lifehacker’s 4K monitor Hive Five, and you can get one today direct from dell for $540, along with a $150 promo e-gift card. That’s a great deal for any 4K monitor, let alone one with an IPS panel.
We love multiple monitor workstations, but “Ultrawide” displays, packing resolutions that rival two or three panels side-by-side, are looking better and better these days. After all, having more than one monitor doesn’t automatically make you more productive. Here’s how these new ultrawide monitors differ from a…

We touched on monitor positioning on our Office Gear Guide, and one of the best ways to elevate your monitor to the right height, utilize multiple monitors, and save space on your desk is with a monitor mount, but which one? Mount up and nominate your favorite in the comments.
Using more than two monitors used to be a luxury for those with the biggest PC building budgets. These days, large, high-resolution displays are affordable, and graphics cards are more powerful than ever. If the thought of gaming (or working) on three displays at once entices you, here's how to make it happen.
I've been toying with the idea of purchasing an Ultra HD monitor since toying around with the enhanced resolution early last year. With the release of the first 4K screenshots of Grand Theft Auto V on PC, the time for toying is over.
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. That's just a hair shy of the 15-inch MacBook Pro's 220 PPI, on a display that's nearly twice the diagonal lenth. Wowza.

That’s right: There’s more to a 4K PC than a display packed with pixels. Here’s what you need—and need to know—to build a 4K desktop that handles anything you throw at it.
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.
