What should I look for when choosing a monitor as I mainly watch videos and work with text a lot? Does refresh rate matter?

COST is always a factor. sometimes cheap is an indication of older tech being closed out. there might be things to love in a higher end two year old display compared to a new shiny. read the specs. find a review.

the STAND is factor. how long does it wiggle after you interact with it. or does it wiggle on its own when you bump your desk. a stand that moves less is a better choice. even if the display cost a little more.

where are the CONTROLS. OFF / MENU / UP / DOWN. and how do the menus work. when watching video you may want to change the display profile. you know for darker or more pop.

how do cables attach? I had HATE for a display that had too tight of space for how cables attached. not that I had to plug cables in that often but when I did I always had to pliers to release or tighten. ugh.

connectors. how many. legacy like VGA and DVI. DisplayPort. or just HDMi. what do you need?
