For?
Gaming? Production work? Video editing?

Response time, colour accuracy etc - Your use case really helps determine what you're looking for.

Any target resolution or screen size?

What GPU do you have?


Typically, IPS will give you the best colour reproduction. TN (typically) the best response time/refresh rate, on a budget. VA being a decent balance of the two.


There's a 31.5" 1440p IPS panel, 75Hz and FreeSync from AOC for £193

Main uses will be just web browsing and running office programs, but also i like to watch movies. For the resolution 1080p is fine. For the size, i think 27'' would be a good size. I will be connecting it to a lenovo t590 laptop. I think it is integrated graphics only. IPS would be the preferred option. For response time and colour accuracy, just the best i can get within my price range really.
