You can, after all, buy a 24-inch widescreen monitor with a 1,920 x 1,200 native resolution for around £200 these days if you're not concerned about quality and just want lots of desktop real-estate.
There is the infamous saying that bigger is, ahem, always better... but in the LCD monitor market, that's not quite true. In our opinion, it's more about how you use the diagonal size you're working with and anyone that cares about image quality or colour accuracy would agree – there's no substitute for a good monitor.
It's arguably the most important part of your computer because it can make the single biggest visual impact on your overall computing experience. Whether you're editing photos, watching high-definition movies, playing games or even just reading your favourite tech site, a high quality monitor can make a massive difference."
