Quad HD Monitors
Quad HD (QHD) is exactly what it sounds like – four times the resolution of conventional HD. So, while a standard HD monitor is 1280 x 720 pixels, a Quad HD monitor is 2560 x 1440 pixels. As you’d expect, by filling the screen with four times more pixels, Quad HD monitors offer an extraordinary level of detail. If you’re a keen gamer or interested in video and photo editing, you’ll see the difference immediately.
It’s worth noting that Quad HD screens are defined by their vertical resolution (1440p) so many of our widescreen QHD monitors offer a horizontal resolution that exceeds 2560 pixels. Take the incredible LG 49WL95C-W Quad HD 49” Curved IPS Monitor, which doubles up on screen space with an expansive 5120 pixels. With so much horizontal space to play with, this widescreen QHD monitor is great for organising photos or editing audio and video projects.
If you’re looking for a top of the range monitor that delivers stunning, truly immersive visuals, consider a curved model, like the Asus ProArt PA34VC Quad HD, which wraps around your field of vision, creating a more natural viewing experience. Alternatively, the BenQ SW2700PT features a detachable shading hood that reduces screen glare from ambient lighting such as sunlight or nearby lamps, ensuring colours on the screen look more accurate.
