this seems like a good deal for a work monitor. What am I missing?

"Similar" specs for $89.99 new from Office Depot / Max a few days ago (now expired): https://slickdeals.net/f/16253065
VA panel there (vs. IPS here), but a lot of people don't mind / notice that factor Smilie Figured this might be worth posting anyway; for anyone who has eBay gift cards or eBay bucks to spend. Good to have options.

Yeah.. VA Vs. IPS matters a lot in pricing.

The problem is this is a 27" 1080p.

What makes 27" 1080p a problem? I'm admittedly behind on monitor tech, and have no idea what to be looking for these days. The only thing I need is external displays (I don't need audio or anything like that). Ideally I'd have USB-C connections from the monitor, but I'm thinking I probably won't find USB-C connections at this price-point. I guess I'd just need to buy a hub of some sorts, to connect two of these to my MacbookPro.

Absolutely nothing. The people that have a problem with it are going to say it's not 4k. Not everyone games at 4k. I've worked with a 27 1080P monitor for a long time no issue. No, it doesn't look terrible. In fact, I would pick up two of these and work in dual monitors if I needed them.

This is LG's low budget line. I have this. The stand wobbles badly with the slightest touch. Beware!

This combination has a lower pixel density which makes the image look worse than one that's higher res at the same size.

Up to you if that matters but there's plenty of cases besides being a gamer where someone would want more pixel density/a higher quality image.

Just received this. They forgot to include the power cord and screws to attach the monitor to the stand. Will likely return.

I have never noticed that much of a difference until you get to the 40 inch or so range of monitor, then the edges become very apparent.

Well you may need your eyes checked but people have said this is/can be the case so just putting it out there for extra knowledge.

One thing I never considered is presenting in Teams, Zoom, whatever. 1080p is a great idea as a second or third monitor for screen sharing.
