Whether you intend to use one for gaming, work, or production, 4K monitors are becoming an increasingly popular option. True 4K has become more achievable than ever thanks to advances in graphics cards with tech like Nvidia's DLSS and the release of the PS5 and Xbox Series X. This technology has made 4K displays very desirable as we can finally take advantage of the better image quality and higher resolution. There's no shortage of great 4K monitor options out there with high refresh rates, low response times, and more. (Though if you're thinking about refresh rates for competitive gaming, see our guides to the best 144Hz monitors and best 240Hz monitors.) With that in mind, we've rounded up the best 4K monitor options on the market in 2021 from top brands like LG, Asus, and Dell.
