The Benefits of QHD Resolution

You need a monitor that delivers top-notch features for design, photography, engineering, financial or other detail-driven applications. Is QHD worth the premium over HD? What benefits does it offer?


Quad HD (QHD) resolution, also referred to as WQHD for its wide 16:9 aspect ratio, delivers four-times the pixels offered by HD 720p. This added pixel count delivers notable benefits for detail-minded professionals: photos, line drawings and text are crisp, clear and ultra-sharp. Added screen real estate is another key benefit of WQHD. With more workspace at their command, users can simultaneously view multiple tabs or documents, eliminating time- consuming toggling. Designers can seamlessly compare drafts, keep pallets and tools visible, and easily zoom into detail across their entire workspace. Large spreadsheets can be viewed in their entirety and market tickers and other stats can be tracked simply by scanning the screen. Programmers benefit from simultaneous visibility of code and documentation, while writers can keep web pages and other reference material visible as they create content. In short, more screen space means greater productivity. As demonstrated by numerous studies1-4, added screen workspace offered by WQHD:

  • Boosts overall productivity by 30% - 50%
  • Enables users to complete tasks up to 52% faster
  • Reduces window management time up to 90%
  • Boosts reading comprehension by making more text visible at once
  • Can result in enhanced strategic thinking by enabling a better view of “the big picture”
