    Advice on a couple of monitors please

    I’m looking at a couple of monitors

    This Dell

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...KL5A1OLE&psc=1

    Or this Acer

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...KL5A1OLE&psc=1

    Both appear to be similar specs.

    It will be used as a general purpose monitor attached to a Mac mini with HDMI out.

    I have used Dell in the past and been quite impressed, but Acer seem quite respectable.

    Also thinking about LG at a similar £130 - £150 price point. In built speakers a plus (yes, I know they aren’t that good, but that’s not a problem)

    Re: Advice on a couple of monitors please

    The Dell is IPS and the other one is TN. For general use I would recommend IPS. I certainly miss it a bit.
