    Default Monitor suggestions

    Looking for a new monitor as a second screen when I replace the current Thunderbolt display the new iMac arrives.

    Looking at an LG27UL850 - 27" UHD 4K. £399 from Scan.

    Any suggestions for alternatives?

    Don't need 5k display quality, does need to have USB-C input, at least 27" screen size, preferably a couple of USB 3.0 outputs as well.

    34" Dell. Then you only need one monitor.

    This is a great bit of kit:

    Dell UltraSharp 34 Curved USB-C Monitor: U3419W

    I found it a bit fiddly to get used to but loving it now

    Samsung 34" Ultrawide. Had mine 2 years and wouldn't ever go back to a smaller screen. Great for multi-tasking and for gaming too.

    It's going to be a second screen so don't want anything quite that wide, otherwise yes, excellent bit of kit.

    Forget two monitors and lump them both in to one?
