The cameraless, petite Google Nest Hub will blend into any room in your home. It's affordable, and quite useful as a digital assistant (especially in the kitchen), a photo frame and a smart-home control panel.
The Amazon Echo Show 5 isn't quite as good as the Google Nest Hub, but it's a solid smart display that's particularly compelling as a smart alarm clock.
If you'd like visual recipe help in the kitchen, the Lenovo Smart Display performs that task exceedingly well and everything else well enough that it deserves your consideration.
If you like the idea of a smart display for cooking, calling or watching videos, the newest Echo Show is a great option. But don't expect any extras.
It's not the most feature-packed monitor you can get for the money, but the Dell UltraSharp 27 (U2717D) is a fine general-purpose display.

With thoughtful design, great performance, and plenty of OSD features, the Dell UltraSharp U2412 fills its value quotient to the brim.
The Dell UltraSharp U2713HM is an excellent monitor that will satisfy both the performance snob and the features diva alike.
If you just need it for high-frame-rate gaming, the Acer Predator XB272 is a great option. But otherwise it's a bit lackluster for the money as a general-purpose monitor.

For a multitalented monitor in tight spaces, the AOC C4008VU8 4K UHD, 40-inch display might be the right fit. But overall, it's not knockout for the money.
The Samsung SyncMaster T27A950 is an HDTV/monitor meant for movies and TV with tons of features and a beautiful design, but some will find its price too high.
You'll be able to get your Windows 8 touch on with Samsung's first multitouch monitor.
Acer's new monitors vary in a number of ways, except one: They're all a bit dull.
The Samsung SyncMaster 2693HM proved itself to be an excellent overall performer, particularly during movie playback, and can be had for a fair price. Only a flimsy stand, an overcalibrated color-temperature setting, and a poor lower viewing angle prevent a higher recommendation for this 25.5-inch LCD.
Unlike the Surface Studio, the Dell Canvas is a secondary display with touch and pen input that connects to any PC.
The stylus optional mobile monitor is optimized for Windows 8 use.
The company's Predator X27 display has a lot in common with the one it announced at CES.
