Can anyone advise on a cheap and cheerful monitor/panel? Ideally i'd like
>full HD
~24"
Used for design/office work, maybe occasional gaming but not essential at all

cheers

The next resolution commonly available above 1920x1080 is 2560x1440 and depending on your setup (viewing distance) you might find that a bit too much at 24" (although 24" & 25" screen are available), 32" is the nominal 96dpi size for that resolution.

They're not cheap though. They're £200+, well over twice the price of 1920x1080 screens. You may want to consider a dual screen setup instead which gives more space for less price.

Thanks, think it will be best to go down the 2x 1080p

It's strange how PC monitors don't seem to go down in price.

I bought my 24" Acer around 4 years ago, maybe actually 5-6 for £100 and that's the standard price for any 24" 1080 these days.

I hope to upgrade to a 4k monitor when they (hopefully) come down in price tho!


And yes I'd recommend getting 2 monitors if you have a use!
