The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is one of the best Lenovo laptops, but when you're using it at home, you may find that you want a bigger display. This is where external monitors can come in handy, as you can hook your device to it, and it will project the display onto the monitor. There are a lot of different external monitors out there, and each one offers something unique. Here's a list of our favorite options.

If we had to choose

If you want to blow up the display on your Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon while using it at home, an external monitor will benefit you. Whether you're working on a project, doing research, or just having some fun watching a movie, a bigger screen allows you to see everything in front of you more clearly. However, since there are so many external monitors on the market, it can be tough to know where to look.

In our minds, nothing tops the Dell UltraSharp U2719D's perfect combination of stunning color accuracy, a crisp 1440p resolution, plenty of ports for peripherals, and thin bezels. It's pretty much everything the average user could ask for, regardless of the activity being done.

People who want a premium 4K experience should invest in the BenQ PD2720U. It may be very pricey, but it's worth every cent as it brings the full power of 4K resolution to your eyes, backed up with supreme color accuracy, Thunderbolt 3 ports, and slim bezels. Folks looking for something as affordable as possible will love the Acer SB220Q, as it offers a solid HD viewing experience for a dirt-cheap price.
