A PC monitor’s main purpose is delivering the best image quality possible, meaning bright, colorful, clear images that can keep up with speedy gaming and displays that can handle color-rich content. Whether you’re all about the resolution, a refresh rate snob, a nits nitpicker or a contrast king/queen, 2019 will bring high-end specs to the monitor market. But that’s not all you’ll see.
During the CES 2019 consumer technology trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada last week, we got to preview many monitors coming out this year. Not only are vendors packing on the specs, they’re bringing a bounty of add-on features that turn monitors from a viewing tool to a peripheral yielding additional useful capabilities. From monitors that bring the noise or hide and organize your wires, to display tech that’ll help your posture and break the backlight mold, there are a lot of unique monitor gimmicks on the horizon.
