The monitor I had started doing weird electric noises late last year so I replaced it with a new one and, given that I was already getting a new one, I also wanted to get something a bit better.
So, I went from a 23" 1080p monitor with IPS and 60Hz to a 25" 1440p monitor with IPS and 60Hz. Both from Dell.
I went with an IPS monitor because that type of panels offer the best colours. For comparison, TN have higher refresh rates and VA have better blacks and contrast.
The size is kind of a problem to me as I'm not comfortable with big monitors. 23" was already perfect to me but there are no 1440p screen at that size, so I went for the next best thing. Luckily, I got used to it very quickly, which gives me hope that one day I'll be able to get a 27" 4K monitor in a few years.
The refresh rate didn't matter to me, but you don't need high frames per second to enjoy the extra refresh rate.
Please excuse my bad English.
