Hello everybody!

 

I am looking for a second monitor which I can use to look stuff up while e.g. playing games on my main monitor.

 

My current main monitor is an AOC24GU 24'' with a TN panel, 1080p resolution and a 144Hz refresh rate. I am fine with the second monitor being 60Hz and having a TN panel, although it should be 1080p and preferably 24''. I am also going to have it stand vertically, because I don't have enough space on my desk.

 

My budget is around 100€. I could probably push it to 150€ if I give it a little bit more time. Any recommendations are welcome!

For 16:9, i'd go with this monitor: BenQ GW2480 24-inch

But, my personal choice would be this one: Dell 24 inch U2415. Although the price of this one could be more than your budget in your country. Also this is 16:10.

You do not want a TN monitor when you'll use it vertically.

Why is that? Is it because of colours or view angles or something else?

The UltraSharp is sadly much more expensive over here. However, the BenQ one looks pretty good and fits nicely into the budget! I will put it on my list of conciderations hehe. Thanks for recommending!

The viewing angles of a TN display are very noticeable when you use one vertically. There will be a significant difference in the image horizontally when the monitor is vertical.

Secondary System: York

Intel Core i7-2600 (4C/8T), ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3, 16GB GEIL Enhance Corsa DDR3 1600MHz, Zotac GeForce GTX 550 Ti 1GB, 240GB ADATA Ultimate SU650, Windows 10 Pro for Workstations

Thanks for clarrifying! IPS panels with this size and refresh rate generally seem cheap in my country, so I might go for one at the end.
