Best Video Editing Screen

The best monitors for video editing will truly help you make your work stand out. Although you may be able to use an old, cheap monitor for video editing, it is not a smart idea. If you are involved in video editing as either a professional or in your spare time as an aspiring content creator such as a vlogger, you have to be able to differentiate visually outstanding source footage from clips that you should leave in the trash.

Best Video Editing Screen

1. ASUS ProArt PA329CV 4K monitor

Best monitor for video editing overall


Screen size: 32-inch (31.9)

Resolution: 4K UHD (3840 x 2160)

Brightness: 350 cd/m2

Ports: DisplayPort 1.2 (x1), HDMI 2.0 (x2), USB 3.1 Type C (upstream, 90W power, DP Alt Mode)

ASUS instantly made it on our list with this monitor which has a very large 32″ screen size and 4K UHD resolution. However, don’t just focus on size and resolution when choosing a monitor for video editing. A good panel is equally important for video editing and buying the best IPS panel monitor that you can afford is crucial, and the rest is just a matter of taste. 

It’s true you can find a monitor of this size for less than half the price of this category (hello, BenQ), but we didn’t include it as it uses a VA panel, which is problematic for color reproduction from different viewing angles. Compared to an IPS panel, a VA panel offers a better contrast ratio, but narrower viewing angles. Vertical viewing angles on VA panels can alter the color from top to bottom.

The Asus ProArt display lineup includes over a dozen models, and the PA329CV stands among the middle range with regards to pricing. It has a solid construction and a sober design plus great ergonomics. It is a great fit both as a single display or as a part of an expandable multi-monitor setup as it features a borderless design with no visible edges.

But it is the quality of its IPS panel that is its main selling point: it has 100% sRGB color space coverage along with Rec. 709 (the color space used for HDTV with a different gamma than sRGB). Its color accuracy is verified by Calman to be ΔE < 2. A delta value below two generally signifies more accurate colors, with anything below two considered indiscernible by humans. Additionally, it adheres to VESA HDR400, an industry-standard for ensuring the panel displays a minimum peak brightness of 400cd/m2.

It allows fine tuning brightness, contrast, color saturation and temperature, hue, gamma and other settings, but its presets will please most users, including sRGB, Rec. 701, DCI-P3, HDR, Reading Mode which is the low blue light mode to save your eyes, among others.

Instead of the legs that are commonly encountered with other big screen monitors of the same type, this monitor has a square foot stand. In this way, your computer or accessories can be placed nearer or atop the monitor base, and no space is wasted. With a desk clamp mounting bracket conveniently included, a full space optimization can be achieved by attaching it to the edge of any desk.

Its stand offers height, swivel adjustment, tilt of 23 to -5 degrees, and 90-degree pivot to switch it to portrait mode, making it ideal as a secondary monitor as well as for dual-monitor configurations (if you’ve got the space).

It has one DisplayPort input, two HDMI inputs, and a USB-C port for connectivity. It can act as a USB hub if you connect it via USB 3 and includes four USB 3.0 downstream ports, two with the rest of the connectors and two on the side, along the left edge. All around, a good selection of features for a great price. Hats off to ASUS.

2. BenQ SW271 4K monitor

Best monitor for video editing for the aspiring pro


Screen size: 27-inch

Resolution: 4K UHD (3840 x 2160 )

Brightness: 350 cd/m2

Ports: DisplayPort 1.4 (x1), HDMI 2.0 (x2), 3.5 mm Audio Jack, USB 3.0 Upstream (x1), USB 3.0 Downstream (x2), USB 3.1 Type-C

Basically, this is a professional level monitor with HDR support and a wide Adobe RGB color gamut and a few tricks up its sleeve, all at a reasonable price -one fifth of the most expensive Pro-level monitor in our lineup. Video editors will find several useful features in this device, including a hood, as well as precise factory calibration. 

It’s IPS panel has true 10-bit color depth and delivers accurate colors with 99% of the Adobe RGB color space and 100% of sRGB. It also has a 1,000:1 contrast ratio and 178-degree viewing angles.

A mini-keyboard is plugged into the monitor using a mini USB cable and contains hot keys. BenQ calls it the “Hotkey Puck”. It has D-pad-style navigation arrows to move within the monitor’s on-screen menus, and the OK button in its center. The outer circle of the Puck has three numeric hotkeys and one that opens the OSD menu. 

Noteworthy are innovations like its Black and White mode and “GamutDuo” that lets you split the screen in half and see how the image would look in two different color spaces. Finally, it supports Picture in Picture (PIP) and Picture by Picture modes, which divide the screen into halves and display output from two different source devices simultaneously on both sides.

Connectivity is provided via the following ports: one DisplayPort 1.4, two HDMI 2.0, one USB 3.0 upstream to its hub, two USB 3.0 downstream, and one USB 3.2 Type C with power delivery for charging and DP Alt mode for video.

Its hard plastic shading hood, which works in both landscape and portrait modes, is just the icing on the cake.

3. EZIO ColorEdge CG319X monitor

Best monitor for video editing for the established pro


Screen size: 31.1-inch

Resolution: 4K DCI Standard (4096 x 2160) 1:1.85 Aspect Ratio

Brightness: 350 cd/m2

Ports: Displayport 1.2 (x2), HDMI 2.0 (x2), USB 3.0 Upstream (x1), USB 3.0 Downstream (x3)

As a professional monitor, the Eizo ColorEdge CG319X is not suited to the aspiring user. In fact, it is only suitable for users who are already professionals. At 31.1 inches, it’s bigger than other prosumer / aspiring pro offerings such as that of BenQ. 

The color gamut of this monitor is exceptional, rendering 99% of Adobe RGB and 98% of DCI-P3 color spaces, the color space used by the American film industry, along with full coverage of the CMYK color spaces used by the printing industry. The display features a high contrast ratio of 1500:1 and 178 degree viewing angles.

Featured on the screen is a built-in calibrator located right at the top of the screen. Calibration takes place over a period of half an hour and during this period, you’re able to use your monitor while it adjusts itself.

Included in the package is the ColorNavigator 7 color management software, which works with the Windows 10, Mac OS, and Linux operating systems.

4. MSI Prestige PS341WU ultrawide monitor

Best ultrawide monitor for video editing


Screen size: 34-inch

Resolution: 5K2K (5120 x 2160)

Brightness: 450 cd/m² Max Screen Brightness 600 cd/m²

Ports: DisplayPort 1.4, USB 3.2 (x3), USB-C

When working with video editing software, you can really benefit from the extra real estate that a wide 21:9 display offers. With video editors that use the timeline view like Final Cut Pro X or Adobe Premiere Pro, horizontal display space is extremely important. Generally speaking, the bigger the monitor, the better.

It is for that reason that “5K2K” monitors are a godsend for editors of video as they provide the vertical resolution of a 4K with the horizontal resolution of a 5K monitor – all in a wide-screen format. The MSI Prestige PS341WU delivers stunning images with 5-120 by-2160 resolution at 60Hz for high color contrast and vibrant colors. Thanks to its LG nano IPS panel, it produces excellent image quality for content creation and design.

As well as a larger screen area, it has a higher pixel density, which translates into better image quality and sharpness. Furthermore, it has excellent connectivity, including a USB Type-C port with charging capabilities, a DisplayPort port as well as an HDMI port-the latter being limited by HDMI’s bandwidth at 3,840 by 2,160 at 60Hz.

5. Dell UltraSharp UP3218K 8K monitor

Best 8K monitor for video editing


Screen size: 32-inch

Resolution: 8K (7,680 x 4,320)

Brightness: 400 cd/m2

Ports: DisplayPort 1.2 (x2), Audio Jack 3.5mm (x1)

Even five years after its announcement, the model is still outstanding and astounding today. However, it continues to have a high price and little competition, perhaps because there isn’t a lot of 8K content available and everyone is still producing mostly 4K video content. 

With the new breed of high-end smartphones already capable of 8K video recording, the flood of 8K content is likely to make other monitor manufacturers jump aboard the 8K monitor bandwagon. 

The 32-inch size of this beast doesn’t let it go unnoticed, even when it is turned off. From the outside, you get a pretty sturdy design and impressive construction as per usual with Dell, all wrapped up in stylish brushed aluminum. In addition to the great ergonomics -again another hallmark of Dell- it has support for height adjustment, tilt, pivot and portrait mode features.

Most IPS screens in this line up have a brightness of around 350 cd/m2, however, this one has a brightness of 400 cd/m2. Moreover, its contrast ratio also tops the list at 1300:1. The panel’s color gamut is one of the best we have seen with 100% of sRGB, 100% of Adobe RGB, and 98% of DCI-P3.

Best monitor for photo editing 2022

1. Dell UltraSharp U2419H

This inexpensive 24-inch Full HD monitor might be all you need



Screen size: 23.8 inches

Resolution: 1920 x 1080

Aspect ratio: 16:9

HDMI inputs: 1

Display ports: 1

If you want a useful step up in specifications from our old monitor and the reassurance of a well known brand, you’ve found it. The Dell UltraSharp U2419H isn’t the cheapest 24-inch monitor you can buy, but there is such a thing as false economy, and this Dell does give photographers a good combination of performance and value. The Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution is about as low as we’d want to go in a 24-inch monitor, if you can accept a little visible pixellation if you look hard enough. Otherwise, this Dell’s IPS image quality gives great color space coverage for the money (99% sRGB, 99% Rec709 and 85% DCI-P3), along factory color calibration ensuring an accuracy of Delta-E less than 2. This is the kind of quality we’d expect from a monitor costing several times the price, therefore the Dell UltraSharp U2419H is an absolute steal. Our guide to the best Dell monitors(opens in new tab) offers plenty of alternatives if you’re not sure that this is the right option for you.

2. LG 27UL500-W

A 4K IPS monitor for a bargain price – what’s not to like?



Screen size: 27 inches

Resolution: 3840 x 2160

Aspect ratio: 16:9

HDMI inputs: 2

Display ports: 1

The excellent 27-inch LG 27UL500-W might look expensive compared to budget screens you see in a computer store, but if you can afford the extra it’s well worth it. The 4K resolution is ideal for photographers, and the Color Calibration Pro tool boosts the color accuracy of the monitor, which is essential for anyone who is looking for high-end photography capabilities but at a competitive price.

Extras like HDR-10 compatibility, AMD FreeSync support and 98% coverage of the sRGB cover space add even more appeal.

With a slimline design and slender crescent-shaped silver base, the LG 27UL500-W makes most desktop monitors look comparatively clunky. The only real compromise is that, while tilt, height and pivot facilities are available, there’s no swivel mechanism built into the base.

3. ASUS ProArt Display PA279CV

A cut-price monitor that doesn’t cut corners when it comes to image quality


USB-C: Yes

Screen size: 27 inches

Resolution: 3840 x 2160

Aspect ratio: 16:9

HDMI inputs: 1

Display ports: 1

While you can get monitors with the same resolution and even wider colour gamuts for around half the price of this display, you won’t find a certified color-accurate sRGB monitor for less than the PA279CV. The 27-inch display doesn’t just use IPS screen tech, it’s also capable of displaying 100% of the sRGB photo color space and 100% of the Rec. 709 video color space. What’s more, a Delta-E color accuracy of less than 2 – along with factory color calibration – ensures color is spot-on, right out of the box. Elsewhere, you get a versatile spread of connections – HDMI, DisplayPort, and USB-C connectivity with 65W Power Delivery to power a connected laptop. The panel sits on an ergonomically-designed stand with full tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustment.
