Our selection of the best 15-inch monitors is limited to the top rated monitors which have
screen sizes ranging from 15 inches to 19 inches. Screen sizes are measured diagonally so this is going to be 15 inches from diagonally opposite corners.

Viewsonic and Dell are typically behind some of the leading 15-inch monitors. However many of these are mid-range models and though they're all HD, some stop at less than 1080p. However,15-inch monitors are hardly common today since most companies offer a starting size of around 17".
