It has been a good year to invest in a new 23-24 inch screen, the technology is improving all the time while the price points are becoming almost irresistible. The 1080p market is booming and many high quality LED 24 inch screens can now be bought for less than £250 inc vat.
What if you wanted something a little bigger than 24 inch? If your pockets are extremely deep then you could opt for a Dell Ultrasharp U3011, but be prepared to fork out £1230 inc vat for the pleasure. Dell also have the Ultrasharp U2711 with 2560×1440 Resolution, but again it costs over £800 inc vat right now in the UK.
For those with more a more modest bank balance, some manufacturers are currently offering 26-27 inch screens for under £350. Today we are looking at the Iiyama Pro Lite B2712HDS a 27 inch Active Matrix Widescreen with a solid specification. It offers 50,000:1 contrast ratio, 400 cd/m2 brightness with a 2ms response time and even has speakers onboard.
