I just bought a monitor that was 23 inches and decided it was too small. So, which monitor, over 23 inches, under $300, is the best?

Web browsing > gaming > movies>

These are the things I'll be doing the most. If you could give Amazon links, that would be preferred.

Thanks so much!!

Unless you want a monitor with more pixels, going bigger is pointless in my opinion. All you get is the same picture but stretched out. The best monitor under $300 in my opinion is the 23" U2312HM.

Right now it's on sale for ~$200. It has a 0.6ms input lag so for gaming it's fantastic.

If you wanted 16:10 aspect ratio, the U2412H at 24" may float your boat. It too is also on sale now for ~$280.

Now, after 1920x1080 (16:9 ratio) at sizes 21.5" to 23" and 1920x1200 (16:10 ratio) at 24", getting anything bigger is just a waste of money.
