I'd recommend getting either the current Mirai 27" or the Dabs Value 32" (refurbished). Both are supposed to be excellent sets for the money and will give you more VFM than a smaller screen. Othewise get a computer monitor with a higher resolution that has good (and plentiful) inputs.


The only thing I can advise if you are going for 'budget' brands is to stay away from AOC.

My current PC monitor is AOC and I have numerous issues with the backlight (flickering, turning the entire screen pink etc). After just over a year old, I would expect more from a monitor like this. I can only assume the QC isn't quite up to scratch.

So if LCD monitors are an issue, stay away from their LCD TV's!

Companies like and are also notorious for appallingly bad customer service so be warned.

In short, research the product you are going to buy, and research the company you are buying it from...
