I’ve recently purchased an M1 Mac mini that I’ll mainly just be using for programming. I don’t plan to do any gaming. I’ve only ever had laptops so I have no idea about monitors, only that I should go for IPS. Really I’d prefer to go for the cheapest option, unless there’ll be noticeable/worthy difference in quality, build, or future proofing.
Ones I’ve been looking at all 27” prices pre discount:
S2721D - cheap option 1440p $336
S2722DC - next model of the previous version 1440p - has USB C with power delivery $411
S2722QC - previous model but 4K UHD? $461
S27221DGF 1400p saw this was OzB recommended monitor under 400 in another post. Titled as a gaming monitor though so don’t know if the value is lost on me.
ATM I’m thinking S2722DC. Seems like it’s got some decent feature upgrades from the previous model (don’t know if the screen is any better though) and I don’t know if going up to 4K will benefit me much (I read sometimes when you scale up text using 4K it can get a bit blurry?)
Any help would be much appreciated!
