In the Market for a New Monitor

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a new monitor to be primarily used for Chief Architect and some casual gaming. Suggestions for something in the $200-$400 price range would be really appreciated.

I recently got a BenQ 27" QHD- I was after flicker free and did not want to go full 4K. In your price range, decent response time for an IPS. I'm happy.

Larger - a few folks are using 4K TVs -saw mention of TCL brand, price is right, so I went and got one to use for TV .

I like my 32" BenQ VA ( IPS like) Panel BL3200PT monitors, there is a newer Model ( size up from Mark's above) out now , so not up on current pricing. 4K did not work for me at the time , I tried a 43" TV 1st and decided dual 32" would work better.

I have an LG 34um95 which is almost 4k 3440*1440, and a HP pavillion 32 QHD.  The HP 32 I bought it used, found a photographer online who was sellling it for 250$, haggled him to 200$.  Honestly I love it, 16:9 i love, the 21:9 is useful but not always.  I tend to PBR on the HP and do the planning on the LG and stuff in split screen mode, so plan+elevation in sep windows.

The LG has more than 1 billion colors while the HP is ies less, but honestly still great color reproduction.  So if I was you, I'd look at the HP 32 pavillion or omen, pretty much the same stuff.

I'm using (2) 27" Dell 4K monitors.  They are great but sometimes the text is somewhat small to read (have to scale up web browsers sometimes).
