HOW OUR MONITOR REVIEWS WORK

Our testing team subjects each product in our lab to uniform measurement procedures that evaluate all aspects of its performance, no matter the type of monitors. The results are then weighed in our system to reflect the impact they will have on your experience, based in your intended usage. The list below shows the impact different tests have on our recommendation scores by usage.
