Looking for a Student Display

Xander Cousins
 Share

So I will most likely be leaving the house next year I would would preferably like to bring my Xbox and Pc Tower along with me. Due to this I am looking for a new Display that can be able to use both Systems. 

(Xbox one requires a HDMI Same with the computer)

 

The requirements would be simple:

 

Not too large so anything under 30"
Has built in speakers
Smart functionality is option
And under £250 (GBP)
Fast refresh rate.

 

Any Recommendation would be greatly appreciated. 

 

Thank you in Advance :D !!!!

 

Some people prefer a challenge, I just band my head against a wall until my method works...

What resolution? 1080p? 1440p?

 

Do you use your PC for gaming? If so, which graphics card do you have?

Stop and think a second, something is more than nothing.

looks like he is going for 1440p because a 30" 1080p looks kinda weird (16:9 that is)

I think its a Radeon R5 600 not 100% sure what my card is friend sent it my why when the last one crapped out.

 

And yes gaming plus 1080p 

i'm saying lower than 30" because I don't like large display when gaming (too much to scan)

The reason I ask is to check that your graphics card can actually push 1080p at higher than 60fps. You may want to check.

 

Since you have an AMD, then you'd want a monitor that has FreeSync.

What about the LG 24GM79G, as reviewed here. It can be bought for ~£180 from Laptops Direct.

 

It lists the refresh rate at 50-60Hz, but then states this lower down in the tech specs: V-Sync Rate at Max Res.144Hz. I don't know exactly what that means.

 

It also has FreeSync, which with an AMD graphics card, will help reduce/remove any screen tearing.

They have a white version for 20~ USD cheaper. But in British money that’s bound to be cheaper. (If actual exchange is taken into account, and it’s not number matched in a stronger currency.)
