Any recommendations for a 4k monitor? My new job gives me WFH allowance for my desk and I’m looking to upgrade from my 1080p 27 inch Dell monitor. Any recs would be appreciated!

1080p on 25" max, 1440p minimum on 27" (this is great combo but 4k/5k on 27/32 is also great) and probably some widescreens. At a certain point in the 30's, probably want to be at 4k minimum or I’m guessing you’d be able to count the pixels (like 1080p on 27"). In my last job I used two 1080p 24” Dell Ultrasharps which worked well. Now I have an 27” LG Ultrafine 5k provided by work, which is a fantastic monitor but a bit pricier. I use my MBP screen as second monitor. At home I use a single 27” 1440p 144hz IPS monitor which has been very reliable for years. Since you’re a designer and this is for work, focus on size & resolution, color accuracy & viewing angles, and less on refresh rate and response time. The latter are better for gaming. There’s a website called RTINGS that does a good job assessing the specs of monitors and applicability to given professions.

Thank you so much!

I personally used Dell P2415q, it's few years old model and a 24inch, probably Dell already released newer model and with 27inch. I really like it and pretty accurate colorwise. I heard Eve Spectrum is pretty good and LG 27GN950 is quite popular, but not sure your budget is.

Hahaha both Eve Spectrum and LG 27GN950 are $100 over your $700 mark. Well they are also gaming oriented with fast response time and high refresh rate so you definitely can find cheaper option that's more dedicated for productivity and design.

For office work on a 27” screen, is 4K visually distinguishable from 1080p? Genuinely wondering - I would guess that some people could tell, but I can’t imagine the difference is that significant. I’m not sure what the standard is these days but I wouldn’t spend a ton extra for 4K if it’s expensive I would optimize for refresh rate and response time instead of resolution

like

If you are a programmer, higher resolution means more lines of your code per page, which is a huge plus imho

like

I find for a programmer 32 inch 4k vs 1440p does make much difference. Get a 34" or larger.

Had an employee request a standing desk due to back problems. went through the ADA process & the employee obtained a doctor's note to support their request. However, the note was questionable. it was from an acupuncturist, on a word doc, no real signature and just said that a standing desk would prevent pain & improve their productivity, nothing about him not being able to work without it. Thoughts? Also, what do you think about having certifications from non-traditional doctors?

Need for travel has been one reason why some of our jobs could not be outsourced to remote delivery & low cost off-shoring. If travel is fully or >50% eliminated, it can be a real threat to management consulting as we know it. So there needs to be an “optimal ratio” of travel to client locations, home office, and WFH, to protect our consulting models. Since we need some face time with clients, and some interaction with colleagues, the optimal balance should be possible. Share your thoughts.
