Guide: Monitor Selection

We receive many customer questions regarding monitor choices. We hesitate to steer customers toward 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 a variety of workflows. Monitor availablility changes over time so do double-check that the monitor you buy VESA-mount capable which we feel is crucial for optimizing workstation ergonomics.

Most of these models are NOT 4K. 1440p panels tend to be much higher quality than 4K panels of similar cost. And given typical viewing distances, 4K monitors will have screen contents automatically scaled by Windows 10 so the extra pixels are not particularly useful for most customers.
