Say, I'm looking for a bottom to middle of the range Desktop monitor 18" and above and confused by all the specifications. Kindly direct me to a concise guide to understanding the specs and choosing  a monitor. The most important item is to reduce eye strain. Tx Shaun

Here is a guide from CNET that is a couple of years old, but has a lot of information about the specs you require.

Let me know if you need any other information.

If you want to reduce eye strain, you will need a display that has a high resolution. Are you looking for a modern wide-screen or old, 4:3 display? 18" displays will probably not be that common anymore today, and they will be even less common if you are looking for wide-screen.

Normally I'd recommend an LED display with a resolution of 1920x1080 (Full-HD). That's a good resolution, and the LED backlight makes it bright and good for the environment as it uses less power.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Any model should do. Maybe just go to a PC shop close to and ask for 1920x1080 LED displays. Usually there isn't any big difference besides maybe the price and sizes, and maybe the design from the outside. The panels used inside are often even the same between different manufacturers.
