When it comes to giving gifts, the more technology advances, the greater the chance that your presents are going to be oriented around entertainment and utility. When previously jewelry would have sufficed for just about any occasion, more and more women are coming to appreciate the value of being able to use that thing that cost you a few hundred bucks instead of just wearing it at certain times of the year. Aside from that, being able to impress her with a bit of technical knowledge goes a lot farther in today’s dating scene than simply impressing her physically. So let’s take a look at what to consider when it comes time to find her a new monitor.
The First Question Always Needs to be How She Uses What She Already Has
Is her computer use mostly casual updates of her social networks, browser games, or other low impact tasks? Does she do a lot of text work where it would be useful for her to be able to have two documents side by side? Is she into video games where a higher refresh rate can give her a lower input latency and improve her competitiveness? How important is color reproduction? Would she be replacing her current monitor, or could this addition be used in a multiple monitor set up? All of these scenarios require a different approach for the perfect solution, and are not necessarily mutually exclusive either.
Any time you start a search, you need to know what you’re looking for. Whether it’s a review of married dating sites or a comparison of video editing monitors, knowing the end goal is half the battle. Monitors in particular are a little more work than just hopping over to BeNaughty.com because of all the glowing reviews.

First thing you have to know is what she’s doing and how you can improve the experience. For example, someone who spends a lot of time staring at text and comparing articles or doing research is going to be more interested in something that can provide a crisp, clear rendering of a lot of text and have the space to move it around. In this case, there are two possible solutions based on the size of area she can work with and her comfort level with technology. Either finding a single monitor to replace what she already has with a wide enough resolution to set windows side by side, and/or finding something to compliment her existing monitor so she can move things she isn’t currently using but wants to reference to the side.
Conversely, someone whose job includes lot of photo editing or video work is going to be more interested in color accuracy and viewing angles that anything else. The panel type is going to make the biggest difference here. TN, while the most common and cheapest panel available, often doesn’t cut it in either color reproduction or viewing angle. Often, you end up considering some sort of IPS panel for this sort of work. Even if you can’t afford one of the truly high end options, what most people have can be upgraded to a solid IPS panel for an acceptable amount of money. If she is all about competitive gaming, or constantly complains about stuttering in her games, consider a monitor that has higher refresh rates or newer gsync technology. The form helps if she already had a high end system to push frames above 60 in her favorite games. The latter is great if she doesn’t necessarily have the ability to run a steady frame rate over 60 FPS, since it syncs the monitor’s refresh rate, or Hz, to the FPS the video card is producing.
Once You Know, Compare
Just like looking for a review of married dating sites, you need to spend some time comparing and contrasting the various solutions to her requirements. The best way to do this is to not only read the reviews from the various tech sites that measure out all the specifics and tell you which is technically better than the other, but also spending the time you need to read up on the manufacturer warranty and the general appreciation of the product after it has been purchased. It can have all the best ratings in the world, but if the company has horrible quality control, chances are you are making a headache for yourself and her instead of giving her something she can really appreciate. So make sure to look beyond just the straight up review of the parts and find amateur reviews on day to day use that reflects how she is most likely to make use of it herself.
Understand the Difference between Resolution and Size
This is important for two primary reasons. First, knowing the resolution she will benefit from the most is knowing how much she needs to find on the screen at once. Generally speaking you don’t want to go below 1080p. Anything smaller just is not worth the price, and fortunately usually is not available these days. Instead, you want to compare upwards to the next two most common resolutions: 1920 x 1200 and 2650 x 1440, also known as 1200p and 1440p. The biggest difference between these two sizes is the aspect ratio. Don’t let all the jargon throw you off, we promise it is easier to understand than you think. 1080p and 1440p are considered 16:9 (read sixteen by nine) aspect ratios whereas 1920 x 1200 is 16:10. What does this mean? Essentially, that the 1200p screen is a fatter rectangle height wise than the other two if you were to make them all a similar size. 1200p is a good alternative to shelling out for 1440p if she would make better use of the vertical space, as may be the case if she is doing a lot of text work, or wants two documents side by side. On the other hand, it is generally harder to come by outside of laptop monitors and may not be worth saving the extra money if it is that much more difficult to get your hands on.
Resolution is only half the battle, though. Just like one review of married dating sites wouldn’t be enough to convince you BeNaughty.com is the best of the bunch, only having the resolution of the monitor isn’t going to tell you which size to buy. Generally speaking, most monitors in 1080p, 1200p, and 1440p resolutions are going to come in variations of 23, 24 and 27 inches diagonally across. Sometimes you will also find a nice 30 inch monitor as well, but generally speaking the price difference is not worth the extra few inches. This becomes a definitely not worth it unless it also sports a 1600p resolution. So that leaves the decision between the 23, 24 and 27 inch varieties. As a general rule, it’s best to go with whatever fits best in the space. The primary difference between a 23 inch and a 24 inch monitor is pixel density with the smaller looking sharper because the pixels are closer together. The opposite, then becomes true as you increase the size of the monitor.
