I am looking for a good under $250 monitor to be used mainly for writing. Text quality is the most important thing. I will be attaching it to my 2017 MBP, and will be doing some video editing. Any suggestions?
There’s some info and opinions here to get you started.
I’ve tried several different 24" monitors. I initially went with a 1920×1200 resolution but found that the text looked too grainy for me. I’m pretty happy with QHD resolution of 2560x1440. I bought this https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/accessories-and-monitors/monitors/home/L24q-30A19238QL023-8inch-Monitor-HDMI/p/65FBGCC1US on sale for $155. It has a VESA mount.
I’m surprised this didn’t make the Wirecutter article. It is now sold out, but I will definitely add it to my list of possibilities.
