We ran a very informal experiment at one of my former workplaces (software engineering) by passing around a couple 37" 4k TV screens that people tried out as monitors. Anecdotally, some people got super ill feeling using them, and some people loved them, there were too many factors to narrow it down beyond that but it was certainly more people that ...

The LG 24LJ4540 would make a poor computer monitor because of its very low resolution and pixel density. There is nothing you can do to fix this. This monitor has a 23.6" (diagonal) panel with 1366x768 resolution. That gives it a pixel density of 66 pixels per inch. Put another way, it has 4409 pixels per square inch. Your Dell E2020H has a far superior ...

After the addition of the GPU output panel… What you appear to have are 1 DVI-D, one HDMI & 3 DisplayPort connectors. It is unlikely that all those will work simultaneously, some will be shared, but it is very likely one of each type will work [& possibly two of the DisplayPort connectors]. So - you cannot directly connect two HDMI cables - there's ...

Some backlights do flicker at low brightness settings and the frequency they use might bother you. I would look at reviews for TVs to use as a monitor at rtings.com as a guide where they do cover lots of details. The typical things you get with a TV versus a monitor is the refresh rate and dithering of colors or lack of sharpness because they might not do ...

LCD TVs and LCD monitors use the same technology and can be used interchangeably. Add a tuner to a display and it's a TV, and TVs are fine as displays. That said, 720p is usable resolution, but close-up you'll see the pixels on the comparatively large screen. If you're working with images, e.g., retouching photos, get a monitor with higher resolution to ...

What you might want to look into is HDMI Multiplexer devices. There are quite a few "2 input 1 output" type devices, but there are also "Matrix" devices that allow you to switch multiple outputs like this one this one that allow you to take in some signals and switch them between outputs. That specific device would be able to switch an ...

The adapter is for converting a DisplayPort source port to an HDMI sink port (likely it is even a passive one that works only on a dual-mode DP (a.k.a. DP++) port). In your case you'll need to find something called "(convert from) HDMI (signal) to DisplayPort (signal) active cable". You probably won't find an adapter in similar style (DP plug/male ...

If your laptop has a Type-C connector, you can look up its capabilities on the manufacturer's website. If it has Displayport capability, you can use USB-C to Display Port, and if your monitor doesn't support Display Port, you can use an adapter, although it's possible that it won't work. It is not possible to connect multiple monitors to a single HDMI port.
