It's built extremely well with an ergonomic stand, it brings beautiful color and contrast, and the IPS panel provides wide viewing angles. Connectivity is broad, including five built-in USB-A ports for hooking up other accessories.

The U2719D is rather pricey, so the AOC 22V2H (opens in new tab) might be more to your liking. It is smaller at 22 inches and has an FHD resolution rather than QHD, but it's built well and has decent specs, especially for the price. Enjoy a 5ms response time and 75Hz refresh rate, along with an IPS panel. It also costs hundreds less than our top pick.
