    What are the highest contrast (darkest blacks) - and secondarily, best colors. It will be used for reading and coding a lot - and sometimes movies and video editing (secondarily). Also, what about the current state of anti-glare technology? My previous displays had mat coating that I liked.
    Thanks!

    If you want big, this is a highly-rated 32" 4k panel with a 10-bit VA panel:

    It's excellent for productivity, but a little slow for gaming. The large screen will give you plenty of working space, and the high resolution will give you excellent details when you need to edit things.

    Best of all, it's about half the price of pro monitors from most other brands.

    Just my luck. I was going to post about a monitor for productivity use and here's a thread.

    Any recommendation for something sub 300 before I drop over 400?

    How big you want yours? The OP didn't provide any requests, so I just made a shot in the dark for big and 4k because he mentioned video editing.

    Do you care about viewing angles (colleagues viewing over your shoulder), or will you be using it solo?

    This is a great value if you want don't care about video editing (it has lower contrast). Good colors and large size, but IPS glow could be annoying to you if you tend to work in dark rooms.

    And if you tend to work in darker rooms, go with something that has better contrast (MVA):

    If you work mostly with text 4k is a MUST. So the AOC linked in the second response or something similar (lg 32ud59b, etc.). Note that these are on the slower side pixel transition wise.

    Yes, I thought that was obvious in the context. I want 4k because I only intend to only keep one monitor on my desk.

    I will look at the LG and I will read the review of the AOC. I have always bought Dell screens, feels wierd to be considering something else.
