Some prefer to connect gaming monitors to the Xbox One due to their improved response times, relative affordability, and ability to fit on a desk. There's a huge gamut to explore, from basic, budget-oriented models running at 1080p to advanced options with high-end features like HDR and 4K support.

Editor's Notes

December 20, 2018:

For starters, you don't need to move past a 1080p option if you're working with a standard Xbox One. The S models will benefit from a 4K monitor because of their upscaling, and it's a bit of waste to have a One X without a UHD display, because its native 4K rendering is something to behold. Also note that every one of our selections here supports AMD's FreeSync adaptive refresh technology, because it's hardly worth dropping a ton of cash on a monitor if you'll have to deal with stuttering and screen tearing. The BenQ models are quite popular across all platforms, and the Asus is a great mid-range display. It's hard to beat the Philips for performance-per-dollar, of course, but the smaller ViewSonic is close behind it. The 32-inch ViewSonic here, on the other hand, is a true high-end gaming display. We have to mention some good Samsung models, and their QLED monitor looks simply fantastic. Of course, if you're not sold on maximum sizes of 32 inches, we included one of Samsung's most cost-effective 4K TVs for gaming. And if you plan on your gaming taking you places, get the G-Story, and you can take it with you.
