Today, there are two screen formats that make up almost the entire market.
16:9. Simply “normal widescreen”. This is the format that most screens have, regardless of price class or target group. Works well for most things.
21:9. Or ultrawide (exact aspect ratio may vary). A single, very wide screen that can be used instead of two separate (likely not curved) screens. Often a little more expensive, but really nice for those of you who need a lot of space.
One wildcard is the almost square format of 3:2, which is starting to appear more and more in work-related contexts, where the idea is that you will have better use of more height than width to read documents and the like.
Gaming screens have the option of higher refresh rates, not infrequently at 120 hertz, 144 hertz, or higher. If you want to get the most out of your screen and your graphics card, the screen must also support the right technology that handles higher refresh rates. Even if there are shades, it is important that the screen supports Freesync if you have a graphics card from AMD, and G-sync if you have a Nvidia card.
It may sound nice to get integrated things, such as a USB hub, webcam, or speakers in the screen. And this can be quite convenient in some cases, especially if you want a very clean desk. On the other hand, these features often cause issues, especially if you connect and disconnect a laptop to the screen. It’s better to spend money and energy on a really good screen and then buy the peripherals separately.
Resolution settings is one of the things that make the most difference for you when using the screen. Here you have a guide about what to consider when it comes to screen resolution.
