Monitor or TV

rprameshwor 2 10 February 22, 2016 at 02:42 PM
Hi guys,

I'm looking for a monitor or TV that i will use mostly for my day-to-day office work ( i work from home, 6+ hours in computer daily ). But at times i would also like to move it to living room and watch movies,games,Netflix when i have some guest in my place.
My price range is around $100-$120. From lurking around the forum for a while, i believe i can get around 23'' - 25'' with that price range ?

I am looking for recommendations and suggestions on deals and best products for my use case.

If you're spending that long in front of a display perhaps consider a "Flicker Free" monitor.

I am not sure if it's truly better than Flicker monitors though (PWM) monitors.

sRGB colour space coverage is very similar (90% U2414) and the Asus uses LED PWM Dimming which ruins motion clarity and makes some people suffer from health issues like headaches and/or eyestrain:

Only the new 25" IPS panels and some 27" HP (Acer G257HL, overpriced Asus I can't remember and the HP 25-27 CW/XW/VX) monitors offer higher sRGB colour space coverage on par with the 24" 1200p and 27" 1440p options.

Can you just set 100 backlight for the monitor then dim with GPU settings to stop flicker from PWM?

If you don't think PWM will be a problem then I think the Asus VN248H-P could be great at 109.99 after $ 20 rebate.

An alternative is the Acer G257HL but has no VESA but is PWM free and 1.2 inches bigger but is about $ 38 more expensive.

In my experience, having a REMOTE is great as I tend to fiddle with brightness, gamma and volume A LOT.

Perhaps check the $ 99 Walmart Refurbished Vizio E24-C1 (only 1 hdmi and 1 VGA but is an actual TV). You can buy 2 year warranty for $ 16 when checking out. I suggest ordering multiple just in case you get a borked refurb if you only try once.

Returns should be easy as it's walmart. Some suggest do an instore pickup and open the TV right there and then so stuff are more easily resolved.
