After 8 years, I bought it in 2008, my 24" screen died. It was a BenQ G2400W https://www.amazon.com/BenQ-G2400W-24-inch-LCD-Monitor/dp/B000XUU5LG/

I think it's quite ok, I've used it almost every single day for several hours, especially during the time I worked from home for 5 years. It was really cheap, I think I paid less than 350 EUR for it in 2008.

So now it's time for a new one and I have to say that I'm disapointed, especially about the sizes and prices in comperison to what you could get 8 years ago. Do you have any tipps on sceens with good value?

I'm looking at two the 3k 32" Philips BDM3270QP and the 28" Samsung U28E590D both are the same price, I'm just not sure if I want lower resolution but a bigger screen or a high DPI screen, no Idea how good Gnome can handle high DPI and if my laptop can handle it, I'm afraid it can't by itself, perhaps there are some docks which can help out


6000 ex moms, right? A bit steep I guess... I'm running 1 22 inch at 1680*1050 and one 24" at 1920*1080. It's terrible when you are used to the 4k screens at work 😕


Yes, but I personally use 25" model. As well as majority of us. http://www.pricerunner.se/pl/25-3033658/Bildskaermar/Dell-UltraSharp-U2515H-priser?q=u2515h
