As a new year dawns, it’s time to take stock and make a fresh start. To draw a line in the sand and embark on a novel journey. What better way to project that feeling of rebirth and replenishment into the workplace than by investing in new equipment. So if you want to make a difference in office efficiency, this is where to start– your monitor. A new monitor is a clear sign, which a forward-thinking employer cares about their eyes and wellbeing, providing the best to your staff. And in return, you’ll get the best results back. Here are five top picks to perk up productivity today.
Enjoy USB-C docking: Clear desk clutter by streamlining multiple functions into a single cable. Power your notebook or laptop direct from your monitor – no need to carry a charger ever again.
Experience High Dynamic Range (HDR): Expect crystal clear visuals with greater clarity, depth and contrast thanks to Ultra Wide-Colour Technology, which offers a far wider spectrum of palettes and shades than most monitors on the market.
Make compelling presentations: Impress clients with appealingUltraClear 4K UHD Resolution, while LowBlue Mode reduces harmful shortwave blue light rays proven to affect eyesight and damage vision over time.
The joys of MultiView: Work with multiple devices on the same screen simultaneously – want to watch the match while working on that report? No problem.

View from any angle: IPS technology offers full colors and a crisp picture, whatever the app and from any angle. Meanwhile, the UltraNarrow border display ensures a seamless appearance.

Alternatively, flick between optimized tailor-made pre-sets for Office, Photo, Game, etc – while the Economy mode delivers significant energy saving benefits.

Extreme Wide Curved Monitor (499P9H1)
Unrivalled perspective: With 5120 x 1440 resolution and a 32:9 aspect ratio, this Super-Wide display offers the same experience as tiling two 27-inch widescreen (16:9) monitors – with the added benefit of 1800R curvature. But without, of course, the annoying borders blocking your view.
Ideal for multitasking: MultiVew technology means you can work from up to four devices simultaneously from a single screen, each split into their designated quadrant – like four monitors in one.
Increased connectivity: Such multi-use functionality, of course, demands ready connectivity.
No problems here: You’re loaded with a built-in USB-C docking station, allowing easy, one-cable transfer and power. There’s also two HDMI and two DisplayPort connections, and a built-in KVM switch to easily switch between sources.
