even though i have a bias against lg i think i have a legitimate reason here.
1. i dont recommend 1080p for portrait. i'll even recommend old 1600x1200 over 1080p. i recommend 1920x1200.
about a year ago i got a good deal on a 1080p asus monitor from ebay. turned it on and immediately put it up for sale on craigslist.

2. don't cheap out on a monitor. we spend a lot of time staring on monitors. pick something high quality even if it's used. if you're gonna pay for something new save up and buy the best of the best.
but since it's a 3rd monitor don't spend too much on it. i say get a nice used high quality monitor.

3. pay attention to only negative reviews of monitors. and think about them before you make your purchase. one of the reasons i never even consider lg's is because a lot of them don't even have vesa mounts. i don't mind poor quality stands which the ips231p-bn is accused of having.
vesa mounts is a must. the new samsung design could be the best monitor in the market but the fact i wouldn't even consider it because that it's not vesa mountable and 16:9.



but this is just my personal preference and bias lol.
