Best Multitasking Monitors For Work And Entertainment

The latest generation of multitasking monitors measures at least 32 inches going all the way to 49 inches

There is no reason to go for the second monitor when you can have one large enough to fit all the windows and apps you want to open.

The latest generation of multitasking monitors measures at least 32 inches going all the way to 49 inches. Even when you go for the biggest on the market, these monitors still take up less space than two monitors placing side by side.

So if you have been convinced, here are our suggestions for the best multitasking monitors for creative users and knowledge workers.

AOC U3277PWQU

AOC's U3277PWQU is one of the best multitasking monitors for business users.

With the price of $1,999 and ₹71,396, this monitor is a steal for its 4K resolution, the ability to connect two computers, and multiple apps.

It comes equipped with DisplayPort and HDMI interfaces, along with VGA and DVI for older laptops and PCs. There are two USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports but unfortunately, there is no support for USB-C.

The monitor is highly versatile, has the picture-by-picture and picture-in-picture feature, and switch sounds from the monitor’s speakers between the two computers.

Acer XR382CQK

The 37.5-inch variant of the Acer XR382CQK retails for $1,099.99 or ₹ 87,699 in India

Acer’s XR line of multitasking monitors aims at video enthusiasts and gamers but since they have picture-by-picture and picture-in-picture features, they can work out well for knowledge workers too.

The 21:9 aspect ratio allows users to view multiple documents at once. They can also connect the monitor to two computers and view content from both.

The 37.5-inch variant of the Acer XR382CQK retails for $1,099.99 or ₹ 87,699 in India.

Connection-wise, there are two USB 3.0 ports, one HDMI, and one DisplayPort. It’s worth pointing out here that the monitor isn’t a 4K display, instead, it has a resolution of 3840 by 1600.

Dell S3221QS

Dell S3221QS isn’t only one of the best multitasking monitors but also the most affordable 31.5-inch display on the market.

Retailed for $424.99, the monitor offers 4K resolution, 90% of DCI-P3, and 99% of the sRGB color standard. This means it can easily handle videos and graphics.

Connectivity-wise, there are one DisplayPort and two HDMI ports. The monitor also has split-screen mode allowing users to use two computers simultaneously.

It supports picture-in-picture and has two USB 3.0 ports for accessories.

Dell U3821DW

Dell UltraSharp 38 U3821DW isn’t the biggest among multitasking monitors but it’s highly versatile. The 21:9 aspect ratio and 4K resolution are perfect for juggling multiple apps.

The fact that it has support for 100% of the sRGB color standard means it’s suitable for all kinds of design and graphics apps. For videos, Dell UltraSharp 38 U3821DW supports 95% of the DCI-P3 standard.

For connectivity, users can rely on the monitor’s four-port USB hub, a KVM switch, and two HDMI ports, USB-C, DisplayPort, and an RJ-45 Ethernet port.

HP 34f

The price means some compromises must be made

HP 34f is budget-friendly and you will be hard-pressed to find another 34-inch option among multitasking monitors that costs you less.

The price means some compromises must be made. Instead of 4K, users have 3K here but the 21:9 aspect ratio still provides enough room for multitasking.

There are an anti-glare coating and a low-blue mode to minimize eye strain. Port-wise, users have two USB 3.0, a DisplayPort, and two HDMI ports. Since there are no inbuilt speakers, you will have to rely on external speakers or those on your PC.
