What Type of Computer Monitors Should You Consider For Your Seattle Law Practice?

Seattle IT ServicesIn today’s digital business world, law firms use computers to create and store an extensive amount of information. Selecting the right computer monitor is just as important as selecting the right computer. But this can be difficult for some. The following are a few tips to simplify the process help you select the best computer monitors for your Seattle law firm.


Look for an adjustable computer monitor, but more than just the ability to tilt the screen. Ensure you can raise or lower the screen as well.


Resolution is the number of pixels or dots that make up an image. When it comes to pixel density, use a pixel-density calculator when shopping and choose a large pixel density for the best resolution.


Most buyers tend to look at the size of the monitor before anything else. Figure out how much space you need for the work you’ll be doing in order to determine the right size monitor. As an attorney, you must to sift through a massive amount of electronic documents every day. Your monitor should display two full-width pages side-by-side so you can review a large number of documents.

Multiple Monitors

Do you use multiple monitors to display social media, your calendar, and other various non-work related services? If you decide to use multiple monitors, match them to avoid small differences, such as different pixel sizes, that may hurt your eyes. Multiple monitors larger than 22 inches may harm your eyes as well.


Some monitors include a microphone, integrated or separate speakers, one or more USB ports, and HDMI inputs. Some LCD monitors have memory-card readers to display photos on-screen directly from a camera. What type of extra features are you interested in? If you want your monitor to double as a TV, find a monitor with a built-in TV tuner.
