This is mainly for textual work (site maintenance, business, researching, etc). Every here and then an image will be edited. Here are all the models available to me. All of them are 10 bit (well, 8 bit + FRC) and 75hz. I prefer with speakers (to save space), will also mount on a VESA wall arm. I think all the IPSs here are the same exact panel from TP Vision? Anyway, here they are:

AOC Q3279VWFD8
Release year: 2018
Panel: IPS
Response time: 5ms
Brightness: 250
Contrast: 1:1200 (Dynamic: 1:20M)
sRGB: 98%
Adobe RGB: 84%
Speakers: None.
This is the only model without a VESA mount. There's a workaround with an adapter.
Amazon avg review score: 4.4/5

Some thoughts on your monitor shortlisting,
1| Choose the latest monitor you can find to aid you with warranty support in case the panel is bad or defective or faulty.
2| Choose the monitor you want with respect to budget and functions(like the speakers), since you're not going to be editing images on it, you can work with pretty much any monitor out there, IMHO.
3| You're not gaming so response times, refresh rates and color accuracy aren't going to be a big thing, unless you forgot to mention them in your post or replaced that with the etc.

If you think that you want to treat your eyes, regardless of image editing or media consumption, then pick up an ISPS panel, as opposed to a VA and TN panel.

Thanks man.

As for editing images - I will do it from time to time, but mostly to polish my travel photos from the phone and make them ready to put on my websites or print them to hang on the walls in my home. But nothing crazy like heavy photoshop or so :) Also, I get design sketches and stuff like that from my designer sometimes, I don't do the designs - but I have to approve them - so I suppose it has to have enough color accuracy?
