My Monitor has died and I need to replace it. I am looking for a 24inch Monitor for general use. I am not

 

interested in Gaming. Any recommendations would be appreciated. Not too worried about the cost.

If your aren't worried about gaming there's no real need to go expensive. What are you actually using it for? I'd probably opt for an ips display as the colours tend to be better on those if that is important to you. I think pb tech sell a couple of LG ones at just either side of $200 with the more expensive offering more inputs. We like our 29 inch lg ultra wide ips display, if you want a bit more real estate width wise it's about the same height as a 24 inch.

Thanks. Unfortunately I am limited to a 24inch because of my Desk Cabinet.

If picture quality in general isn't an issue (e.g web/office stuff), I'd just buy the cheapest thing I can find with a zero pixel warranty.

 

If you want a really nice one and don't mind spending a bit more, Dell UltraSharp's are my goto for anything non gaming.

Possibly a capacitor issue? Resurrected a Samsung myself after a bit of googling.

My 23" Dell IPS monitor has being going great for years. During lockdown I dug out an old Samsung TN monitor from the shed that must be 10 years old and probably more, it's still working well too. So my suggestions are Dell or Samsung.

I fixed a monitopr that had been sitting under my desk for a couple of years the other day. Took about 20 minutes and just involved replacing 1 capacitor on the output of the PSU. Found the same rated capacitor on another broken device that was hanging around. Surprisingly easy and the monitor works great after (it previously wasn't working at all).

 

Don't waste your old minotr even if its an excuse to get a new one :)
