    Which Monitor?


    Since issue #4993 I can say it's annoyed me so much that I'm tempted to buy a new monitor. - I was already tempted but I wasn't ever able to get it down to one particular.

    Notes:
    -Needs to be good from a far away distance (Up to about 6ft)
    -Needs to be reliable
    -Preferably with DVI, HDMI, Display port if possible.


    I've narrowed it down to a few I quite like the look of;
    Samsung S27D590CS 27 inch Curved LED Monitor: Amazon.co.uk: Computers Accessories
    27" Curved LED
    Advantages:
    Curved
    27"
    Speakers inbuilt

    Disadv:
    No DVI
    Not flush to edge of screen
    Not height adjustable


    LG 25UM55 25-Inch IPS LCD Monitor (21:9, 5M:1, 250 cd/m2, 2560 x 1080 HDMI/DP): Amazon.co.uk: Computers Accessories
    25" IPS LCD
    Advantages:
    Ultra Widescreen
    Speakers inbuilt
    Flush to edge of screen

    Disadv:
    Only 25"?
    Possible Res issues?

    I would contemplate getting the 29" if I/yourselves didn't deem 25" to be great from a bit of distance.

    Are you buying a computer monitor or a TV? From 6 feet I'd rather be looking into a 50" screen, but that's me ....

    I have a 27" ViewSonic and I love it. No speakers so I can use separate ones with a sub-woofer.

    It's like this one:
    Amazon.com: ViewSonic VA2703-LED 27-Inch LED-Lit LCD Monitor, Full HD 1080p, 3.4ms, DVI/VGA, VESA: Computers Accessories

    I get that, I have a tv that's 23" and I can see it clearly from 4ft ish I guess so it's no major issue. Unfortunately I couldn't get a TV due to the fact of flicker and such and where it'll be a 50" wouldn't fit.

    The distance is UP-TO, meaning I could be closer at times but at other times I may have to be far away - 6ft.

    That brings back memories. My Father bought me a 19 inch CRT ViewSonic with a glass screen. It was pretty nice back in 2002 lol.

    They still make good monitors, IMO. Mine is perfect for what I need right now.

    Unfortunately not a known brand in the UK, therefore it'd cost a fortune to ship whereas LG, Samsung, Benq? Asus, Dell, HP etc are cheaper

    I have an LG 23" LED backlit and it works great. Believe or not Dell makes some good monitors as well.

    I don't know what distance you're referring to, but the 25" Ultra-wide is pretty small vertically.

    The real one to get is the 34" Curved Ultrawide, although it's a bit pricier at $1299 USD. (you can probably find it cheaper in other locations).
