A high-quality, 32-inch monitor for office use

Key features:
  • Great 30-inch, 2,560 x 1,440 pixel VA screen
  • Versatile stand
  • Eco-friendly mode
If you need a large-screen office monitor that’s easy to set up and not too tough on the wallet, the Samsung S32D850T is well worth taking a look at. The 2,560 x 1,440 pixel resolution VA display delivers excellent image quality over a 30-inch diagonal, with good viewing angles and brightness, and the stand is very versatile, allowing for plenty of swivelling, 130mm of tool-free height adjustment and the ability to smoothly switch to portrait mode.

Single dual-link DVI, DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 1.4 connections, numerous USB ports – one to connect to the PC, and four USB 3.0 connectors to use for peripherals - and a pair of 3.5mm audio jacks can be found on the back of the Samsung S32D850T, while large, clearly-marked physical buttons that will take you through to common settings feature just below the screen.

Samsung has also talked up the environmental credentials of the machine, which is able to consume significantly less power while still delivering on image quality. Brightness is sacrificed in this mode. Despite the inclusion of a gaming mode, we wouldn’t particularly recommend the monitor for games, due to the screen’s relatively slow response times.

Price: £433
