My Dell Ultra Sharp U2312HM 23" monitors from 2012 is getting near the end. Any suggestion for replacements in the 300-500$ CDN range.

Just remember I am a poor Canadian not one of those rich Americans.

(Just had to use that line again, some one in 1983 said that about me to an East German (DDR) conductor on a train travelling between Hof in West Germany to Berlin. Thought my train pass was good to Berlin it wasn't, all I had was 100 DM in my wallet.)

This is much too small for my old eyes.
A meter away from a 40" full HD TV with HDMI input, I find very pleasant.
Surely a larger vaulted 4k TV would be much better (but unfortunately I have not yet).

Perhaps that should read "Just remember I am a poor Canadian not one of those rich Americans Europeans".

I think that within the 23" - 24" range it's actually quite hard not to get a decent monitor at the moment. Certainly here in Australia I can get decent monitors in that size range for between $2-500. For example, a Samsung SE390 costs $240 here in Australia, so given that our current exchange rates match at the moment you should be able to do similar deals.

Full circle. My first monitor was a TV, I could work and watch Die "Sendung mit der Maus" at the same time. I would have to knock down a wall to accommodate one of them.

My two 24" LG's are close to reaching "end-of-life", I've decided replacing with two BenQ-GW2480.

It seems to me that availability and pricing of displays in Europe differ significantly from Canada in general, but I found this model on Amazon Canada: www.amazon.ca/BenQ-GW2480-Brightness-Intelligence-Flicker-free/dp/B072XCZSSW/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1526556577&sr=1-1&keywords=BenQ+GW2480
It's better to travel well than to arrive...

When I built my computer last year, I moved from 2 26" monitors to a single ultrawide LG. Took some getting used to, but for those apps that still aren't dual screen aware it's the way to go.

What does it mean?


I repaired lastly two ~10 years LCDs spending few cents for new capacitors, then I spent about ~2 hour per unit on replacing broken ones.

Dells are notorious for bad capacitors. We flew through these in my past job (we had a Dell business account). Time dictated not fixing them.

I was editing some photos using the left monitor all of them looked like there was tiny dirt bands on the lens. Tried it on the other monitor they were gone.
If the monitors are viewed with Polaroid glasses one monitor is very dark and the other is unchanged.

I'm not sure but I'd suggest to get a screwdriver, open the lcd case and look for broken capacitors on board(s). This is a quite common issue.

At the worst case you'll broke whole unit and buy a new one, but the risk of damage is low and you can save some bucks.

My LCDs were drawing colorful bands and were flickering. It's worth to try to fix it by yourself. It's easy if your hands aren't shaking [too much].

Please do not connect power supply while LCD's case is open! There is high voltage transformer inside and there is a risk of electric shock. If you're unsure ask someone else for help or give the unit to a specialist service.

Thank for the tip. I'll take a look at it. Where did I put that soldering iron?
