MSI is proven when it comes to high-quality computers and accessories. That's why the Optix MAG161V is our go-to monitor for Switch.

This monitor has everything you need: a full HD (1080p) 15.6" display, 60 Hz refresh rate, two USB-C and one HDMI ports, and a headphone jack. The only thing it's missing is speakers, but if you're planning on playing on a train or plane journey, that won't matter.

G-STORY appears to be nothing much more than a budget brand, but they have the only 17.3" display in stock on Amazon right now and it has fantastic reviews.

Mario Kart 


Super Smash Bros.

even more exciting than they normally are.

Aztine is another name you won't recognise, but its 15.6" portable monitor is proven by a slew of five-star reviews from satisfied customers.

Portable monitors are by no means "cheap" (yet), but the Aztine display is the best for under £200 we've found. It's a full HD 15.6" IPS LCD screen with 60 Hz refresh rate and built-in speakers. Nice!
