Arris SB6190 is definitely a great option for you. I personally do not use any of these 2 but if I would have to make a choice then Arris would get picked up!

Just be aware that is a 6-bit + AFRC panel and not an 8-bit one. It is not uncommon in this screen size. Thanks for the heads up! Anything better in similar cost? Honestly, I'd try to reach the $300 U2515H, 25" @ 2560x1440. Or if you are willing to give up the stand and the extra dpi of the de...
