Your home office should be a place where you can be productive — where it’s not a fight to find a pen, there’s enough light for an early morning video chat and you type away without being hunched over. Instead, most of our home offices end up being the dining table, couch or worse — the bed.
If you’re working from your personal or work laptop, you’re probably going to need a computer monitor that’ll show every tab, spreadsheet and document you have open. It’s easy to get lost in all those windows, after all.
In fact, the design experts at Herman Miller say they’ve “seen a 70 percent increase in dual monitor use since 2002, and multiple studies indicate that people who use two screens are more productive.”
That’s good news for folks who are looking for an excuse to upgrade their work-from-home space.
And nope, you won’t have to crane your neck to find the best ones — we already did and spotted six computer monitors that all have more than a 4-star rating and are under $100. Now’s your chance to snag them way before you start spring cleaning.
