Looking For Monitor For Programming

1. Budget?
30k max. Preferably around 25k.

2. Display type and size?

Preferring an ultrawide 32 inch. The monitor will be 2 feet from my eyes so also need it to be sharp.

3. What will the TV/monitor be used for primarily?

Home office. Primary use will be development, followed by some photo editing.

4. Types and number of ports required?

Prefer a USB-C connection to run it with MacBook Pro and avoid buying a dongle.

5. Preferred choice of brand?
I like Dell Ultrasharp but have no brand preference as such.

6. Any TV/monitor in consideration?


7. Any other info that you want to share.

Curved display not important. Slim bezels are also nice but not a deal breaker,


I'm using LG 27UK850, its very expensive but it has the requirement you need. A single USB Type c cable capable of powering the laptop+ display + usb hub at the back of monitor.

There is an ultrawide model also with same specs.



One more option but this doesnt have USB PD, it only has USB C to directly connect to macbook for displayport
Actully it says 1 USB Type-C™ (upstream, power delivery up to 15 W).. Refer to macbook pro manual, it may not charge properly with this and could cause damage, so research well before buying.

So I received the 32 inch monitor but was very disappointed with the 2k resolution. On a 32 inch screen and the monitor few fee
t away, it just looked really bad.

I've now got this 27 inch 4k model - Amazon.in: Buy LG 27 inch 4K-UHD (3840 x 2160) HDR 10 Monitor (Gaming & Design) with IPS Panel, HDMI x 2, Display Port, AMD Freesync - 27UL500 (Silver Stand with White Body) Online at Low Prices in India | LG Reviews & Ratings

Since you need it for programming not movies I think it is a better choice. Enjoy your purchase.
I am looking for a wholesome upgrade. 32" IPS 10 bit 2k, 144 hz and height adjustable. It is too much to ask for less than 40k so I am for now going to use my 24" LMAO.



This is the one I used, got it from AliExpress.

Just buy the cheapest one which mentions usb c to hdmi 2.0 or display port 1.2


@rockfella yeah. Images and videos looked really good on the 32-inch model.

For 2k at 144 Hz, do check if your GPU or laptop can support it. My MacBook Pro 16 supports 4k @ 60 fps max so I just discarded all the other high refresh rate options.

For hight adjustability, you can get a monitor arm and attach it to your desk. It will cost around 2k or more depending on what features you pick, but it's definitely cheaper than opting for a height-adjustable monitor.
