Since lockdown is partially lifted, I'm looking to buy a monitor for office work for at least 1 more month, and then when I get back to office, I will use it to Edit Audios
I don't know what to look for in monitors, except the budget is below 300$ and size should be 21 inches at least.

I’ve been using a nice wee 4K 24 inch display for years now, which handles Logic well. Should be low priced if it’s still available: the Dell P2415Q.

4K isn’t essential for DAW work but it definitely helps. The information density of those interfaces is high indeed. Much better when you can actually see all of it.

Okay @Muirium, I will check it out!
But, I think Minimum Full HD monitor is necessary! Not 4K, But At least 1080p is required!

I know of a professional studio that is using an old 1680x1050 monitor.

But a 24" 1920x1200 is probably all you actually need for audio. 4K is nice, but probably not essential.

I use a Dell U2412M. I wish they would get with the times and make a 3:2 monitor in that size range.
