    Advice Recommend a monitor

    Hi
    need some recommendations on a dual monitor set up. Ideally looking for 23" hd displays and want to spend around 100-120 on each.
    Seen some iiyama ones with ips panels but wondering if they're any good?

    Not fussed if they dont have speakers as I won't use the monitor speakers, but need dvi or I guess could use hdmi with a dvi adapter.

    They won't be used for gaming but will be used for photoshop and some video work etc.

    what brands are recommended nowadays?

    Thanks for any advice.

    I've had a pair of Dell Ultra sharp U2414s for a month now and couldn't be happier. Picture quality and colours are first class, and the killer feature for me is the razor thin bezel that just makes it look classy. I am running them via a single displayport out on my graphics card, and the two monitors are daisy chained via their respective displayports. The only issue is price, they're about £170 a piece.

    Thanks to GTI

    you can get a 27" one now for around £140.00

    don't worry to much about specs and diff panels as its a bloody minefield lol..

    go look at a few is the best way, ips and 4k are the new buz words but a lot still use a TN panel
    and it then becomes confusing, the AOC range is a good one for the price and most have dvi/vga in them
    and switch via the monitor.

    Why does "fat chance" and "slim chance" mean
    the same thing?

    Saw the Dells and they did look good esp with the thin frame. But the price goes up a bit.

    Wakadoo think I prefer 2 displays rather than one large one.

    2 x 27 wouldn't even fit on my desk

    was as looking at 23" because they seem to be approx 60cm width so would just fit nicely.

    Think I've narrowed it down to a few all at the £130 mark.

    the dells I can get for 130 but they're not directly from dell so not sure on the warranty situation.

    leaning towards the dells, anyone got any more advice?

    Thanks

    I've always like Iilyama screens but I've had 2 23" LG's for the last month or so and am really pleased with them. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    I don't know if you have purchased your monitors yet but I bought a LG24MP55HQ-P 24" IPS last month from ebuyer and it is a fantastic monitor, and it is only 57cm wide
    and the price has dropped £30 since I bought mine it's only £109.98 now i would definitely buy another one tomorrow
