You can get amazing, high-res LED-backlit LCD displays for very little money these days, and their dimensions and resolutions will continue to grow as their prices continue to fall over the next few years, says Stevens of Engadget. OLED panels, super-expensive, super-thin monitors that offer brighter pictures and greater contrast, are expected to shake up the market. But buying an inexpensive computer monitor now is a smart move since most use LED technology, and even the least expensive monitors offer really good displays. Prices have really dropped: Today you can get a 27-inch monitor for about $222; two years ago, that price hovered around $400. "They're a lot less expensive and they'll last forever," says Marco Hanna, executive editor of GadgetExperts.net.
