This list of the best monitors is limited to the monitors which are available between $500 and $800. Dell and Asus are the brands that are chiefly behind some of the best monitors under $800, offering you a generous 27-inch display, making them a great option for designers and animators.

The large screen sizes of these high end monitors in the sub $800 bracket also cache some pretty pricey features like LED back-lit TFT LCD screens, which have excellent brightness, colour accuracy and response time.
