Fair play Man. :happy clapper:

And gambling's for fools,

Anyone use Philips Hue lighting in an outdoor setting? Worth the investment?

Other half is working from home and would like a monitor to attach to laptop. Hope to use it for Netflix etc in the evening.

Willing to spend around €150. Anyone any recommendations?

LG IPS panels around that point are good value (vibrant colour) with slightly wobbly stands. Got about 5 good years out of my last one.

Current Samsung 24" is a bit meh for €100

Get something with a hdmi input. Easiest and cheapest to connect other stuff to.

If you've got a spare TV, the windows wireless display adaptor is very useful and takes no setup - I've been using one with my TV and can mirror or extend the display. I think sound works too.

Only £35STG from Currys but around €50-60 in Ireland.

Like most wireless devices it's flakey and slow. Can't beat a nice simple cheap wire.

If you have a spare tv then just hdmi your laptop into it. I think the issue is not having a monitor though.
