Been looking at deals for this monitor for a while and this has appeared on Currys today.

Brilliant monitor for those that aren't bothered about curves, ultrawide or 4K but just want a great quality item with a fantastic picture.

Great reviews.

If you are a gamer I guess 1440p at 144hz is required but for normal home/office use, 1080p is fine.

A quality 1440p is going to come in at more than £179.99 I'm guessing.

My HP ips 23” monitor broke second time in 3 years. No warranty now. So every 3 years fork £200 / monitor to Hp.The price is about right but hp monitors look like duds. I own laptops and those are ok. Guess should sell them while still under warranty.

this instead surely?

Higher is nicer, but you need quite a bit more horsepower if you want to game at 1440p and still hit good levels of performance with good settings. If you're not gaming, it's not such a big problem obviously. .

I have a 27" 1080p screen and honestly, the pixel density is fine. It's not amazing, but I'm hardly getting lousy image quality here, especially with an IPS. Plus I have the benefit of having most media be very accommodating to 1080p, so no having to deal with upscaling for all the 1080p media out there.

Higher resolution and quite a bit bigger display. That is obviously not going to suit the same needs as this one will.

Plus you're not really getting much pixel density advantage by moving bigger like that. 27"/1080p = 82ppi vs 31.5"/1440p = 93ppi. It's a pretty small improvement. You'd have to want/need the larger screen specifically for it to make sense. And a lot of people already consider 27" to be quite large at a desk.

I'm not debating that, however in general the higher the resolution and the bigger the screen the more expensive a monitor is, which would suggest that there are cheaper deals to be had than this for a 27 inch monitor. I voted hot, it's quite good for the price, but most people want as much as they can for their money and so hence why I recommended the other product.
