Nothing out there worth mentioning people ?

 

Thought this https://www.noelleeming.co.nz/shop/computers/computer-accessories/computer-monitors/aoc-i2757fh-27-borderless-led-monitor/prod120506.html is quite good.

 

Also Nikon D7100 plus 18-105 lens for $1247 at NL on clearance.

 

-or maybe they're not. Anyway, just thought I'd mention...

 Only 1080p on that monitor, that is getting up to needing a television type viewing distance to be usable.

 

Also only HDMI and VGA inputs, so means fluffing around with adapters on most newer machines unless it is your only monitor. VGA, really? In 2016.

Plus it isn't really that cheap, plus it is an AOC, and assume the panel isn't the best grade. 

 

I haven't seen any real deals this Queens Birthday. Most retailers seem to jut be doing their normal 'Sales' AKA price rotations.

Well I figure its $60 cheaper than anywhere else according to PriceSpy, it works fine on HDMI, the best grade panels aren't $340 anyway, and if the low res makes the text a bit bigger my eyes will be suitably grateful. So I figure it does well on the value for money stakes and its what I can afford.

It's not a bad monitor for office/daily use etc. I had one and it does look pretty nice. Colours aren't vibrant but it's actually quite nice on the eyes if you're not keen for glossy finishes.
