The best monitors for programming

0

Laptop, external monitor, twin, ultrawide…

options options options! All this years I’ve seen people coding in many ways, each programmer is a different world and there’s no such a thing as the best monitor for all, but maybe the best monitor for each situation.

I have changed my own favorite monitor setup several times, from dual monitor to single to my current LG ultrawide that I love. 

We’ll see the best monitors for each setup, let’s see if we can find yours!

Ultrawide curved 38″ monitors, huge! the best of the best

This is my current choice, now that I have a big table I wanted to have what this days seems to be the best option, a curved ultrawide, and I cannot be happier.

1.1. Best for the money: LG 38UC99-W curved ultrawide

It’s incredible that you can get this huge curved ultrawide for this price. It’s huge, it’s price is under all of its competitors and it’s curved! I’m right now writing this article in front of one and I’m really happy with it.

My old Macbook Pro Retina 15 from mid 2012 (it’s the first retina model) works perfect with it through the mini display port, including the wonderful speakers that use the same cable.

1.2. The new LG: 38WK95C-W

Yes, it’s new and better, but no more so “cheap”, it’s no longer that huge curved monitor with that awesome price.

1.3. Quality: DELL U3818DW

With the same 38 inches as the previous LG models, Dell’s one has a price far away from them.

2.2. Low price, still good quality: Samsung CF791

If you want a 34″ curved you can be sure you won’t fail with this, it is a Quantom Dot Display, this means that it converts the backlight to emit pure basic colors, so brightness and colors are specially good.
