Hi folks,

Any recommendations on a good computer monitor of 32 or above?

I bought two full-spec 4K AOCs from PC World last week. Cheap and good.

There's always the new Pro Display XDR coming soon. Comes without a stand, for some reason, but you can buy a really good stand from Apple, a snip at $999.

It would help if you say what resolution you want, the actual size rather than 32+, intended use.
Half the task is getting those sorted and then you can see what's available.
I prefer a 32" 2560x1440 as it means I can run it with no scaling so there are no issues on that front and my eyes are happy with the DPI.

Hi, I am not sure what Resolution I need to be honest, But I should be sitting about 2 meters from the display so I need items to be fairly big I guess.

We bought a lovely Dell 32 inch at work that cost about €1000. But the thing is that again because we are working at a distance, we set the resolution on that one to a low number. I think it was maybe 1600 by 900.

It might be that I actually need bigger than 32 inch in reality as I do not want the display to be in from of my monitors. I did think about getting a TV but heard that I need to watch out for input lad and out local PC world here do not really have figures for that.

Any ideas greatly appreciated. (A budget of about €600 would be nice, I could go higher if necessary though.)

Any ideas folks. I am killed out reading reviews and every monitor seems to come with goods and bad reviews.
Is there anything I should be considering to narrow the choice down.

I started thinking even this 200 quid hp might be good enough for what I need.
