Recommend me a monitor

Hi all,

Due to work & real life, I have not been able to keep up with the movement in monitor developments over the last couple of years.

I need a monitor for my son, usage will be homework, web browsing and gaming (hopefully in that order) and I would *like* the following features:

1920x1080 resolution
IPS panel if possible
Thin bezel
Looks good
Height adjustable if possible
USB 3.0 ports if possible

My budget is 150 max. If I had a higher budget I would probably just get him a Dell U2414H...

So bit-tech, what is the next best thing to a Dell U2414H for my budget?

You could get something like the Dell P2217H.

I got an older P2214H as a secondary monitor and it's a real bargain imho. Good panel, reasonable fast for gaming and I like the fact that these smaller 22" FullHD panels have a higher PPI aswell in comparison to their 24" brothers. You can even get it colour-calibrated somewhat decently.

I was looking at that, thanks for the feedback.

In my searches I found a Dell P2417H on NRGIT for 159 which is cheaper than Scan and is still a new unit with 3 year warranty.

I assume the P2417H is just a larger version of the P2214H? I like the idea of the larger screen real estate.

Thanks guys, after checking NRG's site and reading some reviews on TFTCentral, I think I am going to go for the P2417H for 159 from NRG unless anyone can tell me about a better deal?

They're basically the same, but the 22" has a tighter pixel pitch. 102 vs 92 PPI. And you don't notice the 2" diference really, but I like the higher PPI as it makes for a better picture-quality.

Cheers mate, I've pulled the trigger on the P2417H from NRG, my boy will appreciate the larger screen real estate.

Thanks all for your help, rep all round.
