Getting an Ergonomic Monitor

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,
I suffer from back problems so I require a new monitor with ergonomic features. Height adjustment and tilt is a must. My main uses are gaming, video-editing and programming.

Other criteria:

- an IPS panel (or a really good TN?),
- matte screen and (preferably) matte bezel,
- less than $250 - $300.

Thanks heaps!

Maybe look at some NEC panels....but they are slow with refresh rates.

Refresh-rate isn't a problem. I was considering a 120hz panel, but I'd prefer an IPS panel since I don't go over 90fps in the games I play.

Looking at the Asus PA238q at the moment, seems like a good height-adjustable IPS display to me at just under AU$300.

If you are already satisfied with your current monitor apart from its ergonomics and it is VESA mount capable, you may wish to consider purchasing a mount rather than a new monitor. Alternately if you purchased a mount along with a new monitor it would allow you to broaden your search to monitors you might not otherwise be able to consider.

^ Looking for a new monitor altogether, as current resolution of 1440x900 is too small for programming and video-editing. I did consider buying a stand along with a monitor, however the additional $50 or so for a decent quality stand makes me just wanna go for a standalone monitor.

So with the Asus PA238Q, would there be any disadvantage in picking up a model that isn't recent? (Released 2 years ago)
