Suggest me a great 24" monitor - Page 2

post #11 of 18
For general purpose usage you can pretty much use anything, but 1440p or 4K will look nicer, if you're interested in that, of course.

Remember to buy a flicker free display.

90% time for work purpose and 10% to view videos.
However since I spend over 10 hours each day in front of it I would want a good one.
So far I have come up with 2 options i.e. Dell Ultrasharp U2415 ($320) or LG 24MP88HM ($230).
The advantage with LG is the monitor looks good (no bezel) and is cheaper however Dell may have better display. LG 1920x1080 and Dell 1920x1200.
What should I do ?
Advice will be appreciated.Cheers,GR

Check out eBay for monitor sold and shipped from South Korea.
Brands like Qnix, Crossover, Yamakasi, etc
Best panel tech (best color) is the LG AH-IPS, which Apple uses in it's $1000 27" model.
But the ones sold on ebay can sell for a lot less.

My (discontinued) Yamakasi DS270 is a 27" with a AH-IPS panel, cost me just over $300.

Spend about $100 on a 1080p and call it done. Or spend a little more for 1900x1200 for a little more workspace. If you're worried about eye strain, just cut down on the contrast settings and create a separate movie setting for when you're watching videos.

Between the options you listed, I wouldn't dare get an LG instead of a Dell Ultrasharp. Why on earth does a bevel even matter if you aren't getting multiple displays for gaming?

I do not want multiple displays and a monitor look does matter to me. A monitor which has no bezel will be preferred than one with a bezel.

However the LG monitor is 1080p, IPS and nice looking monitor and is reasonable on the pocket whereas just to get 1200 pixel I have to spend 50% more money (incase of dell ultra sharp). Am i right?

@Astreon : 2K or 4K will cost more. I live outside the US so prices a slightly higher.

@Tacoboy : would prefer not to use ebay here

By the way in a 2K or higher monitor if I play 1080p movie then will the movie cover whole screen or there will be space left on sides/top.

It's a all-round great and very competitive monitor despite that.

I do coding every day and I can advise to get something bigger then 24 inch. The extra screen space can be used for terminals, side-by-side programming etc. For me at work 24inch is too small and 27inch is where the sweet spot is.

 

If you really want a 24inch you can never go wrong with an Dell Ultrasharp.

Dell Ultra sharp is expensive here (live outside US) and I have already bought a LG monitor. For now this will do the job. Next time when I buy then will consider some 4K monitor or so (after 2 years).
