Recommend Me PC Monitor and Monitor Light Based on Use Cases Please

tl;dr - which monitor would you choose to use and which monitor lighting would you purchase for them.

Been using a Xiaomi 34" (the popular one here) for a few months. Prior to that was using dual monitor (side by side setup); one being a Kogan 27" curved <— link is probably a slightly newer model but similar specs, and an Allied 27" curved <— I know I know … the resolution is different between the two.

Recently the Xiaomi had to be returned for exchange (hopefully), so am back to using the dual monitor setup for the time being.

My use case is mainly for Excel uses, gaming and the odd graphics design.

(1) So, when the Xiaomi exchange is complete, should I go back to using the Xiaomi or continue to use the mixed match dual monitor setup?

(2) I purchased a Xiaomi monitor light bar couple days back. Am gonna get a few more monitor light bars for the Kogan/ Allied monitors plus a few other old monitors that the kids are using. Currently looking at either Kogan one, or the Baseus i-wok youth. Which one would you recommend?

  • nowadays, whatever you are looking for, most of the time the answer is xiaomi (well unless you are apple bois)

    you've used both. Which do you prefer?

    • No preference tbh. Wife was using the dual setup so I pitched hers and her workplace provided two HP monitors since she's WFH. In fact when the Xiaomi comes back after the warranty run, either that or the dual monitors will become redundant or relegated to kids use (and they hardly ever use their PCs).
