Nothing wrong with your choice and a good price. Just make sure is has the connections you need. I am not at my PC at the moment so cannot have a look for alternatives. Do you have a maximum budget and what GPU have you?
If you have the desktop space then a 24" monitor is a must. I promise you that you will wonder how you managed with a smaller screen. The ability to have to web pages or documents side by side but still be perfectly readable is so useful.I like nickf swear by a 27" but am looking to move up to a 30" and I cannot see further than Dell who produce some of the best monitors out there. But they are not cheap. Though you can pick up a second hand one from this guy for a decent price and the guy is sound. Monitors.
I know you said it is just for basis computing but you should still get something that will last give good colour reproduction,have various connections. VGA is old school DVI HDMI are a must.
Thanks guys for the suggestions so far. I think that a 24" would be the right size, due to limitations.
Chronos- Checked out your links. The Ebuyer monitor reviews seems to have the same remarks about a 'flimsy' stand, which would possibly make me think of long term usage or effect. Something that I could possibly life with. There were a few other 24" monitors giving a good review rating, so I will check further, from other websites for pricing, warranty etc. Prefare a 3 year warranty than a 1 year with extended options.
Thanks again everyone, keep the suggestions coming, would add that selection and purchase is not an urgency, but with the 'right' model, then purchase will go ahead fairly prompt.
Just done some internet searches, regarding the suggestions made so far.
Chronos suggestion as some very good reviews and prices from most of the main well known suppliers. This actual model appears to have been released about 8/9 months ago, hence a good selection of reviews. There is also a few bits on YouTube about the LG IPS234V-PN.
