I went to amazon.com where I buy all my computer stuff and I can't figure out which monitor to get. It's a LG 32 inch 1080X1920 and one is for $189 with a list price of $299 and one is $199 and I think the list price is $199. The one for $199 has 8 connections in the back and the one for $189 has 4 connections. I can't figure out which one is the best one. Then it has a warranty for 1 year so is it worth $15 for another 2 years? It's a confusing mess for me.

Get the model numbers for these two monitors and then google for specs and reviews on both.

 

So long as they both have the connectors you wish to use then I would not think the number of connctions is all that important.

If I ever want to use this monitor in the future I should buy the one with the USB ports?

Do Computer monitors take AC or DC in this day and age? All I see are DC. Have they stop using AC?

Almost all monitors now use external PSUs supplying low voltage DC. It enables the monitors to have very thin casings, and it's easy to replace the PSU if it fails, rather than having to have the monitor repaired or throwing it out.

Are all the monitors Gloss because I can't seem to get a 32 inch matted screen. Even when the manufacture says it's matted and people using them say it's gloss. I've spent hours researching these monitors and I still come up short.
