Guide: Monitor Selection
We get many customer questions about how to choose the best monitor. We hesitate to point customers towards particular brands and models. We cannot stress enough the importance of visiting a physical retailer to choose a monitor that looks good to you - not one that looks good to folks writing on the Internet.
That being said, below we've listed a handful of monitor models that customers have had particularly good luck with and are sized to match your Surface. All models are IPS panels with best-in class color reproduction for good performance across various workflows. They all include a VESA-mount capability which we feel is crucial for optimizing workstation ergonomics.
