There are a lot of types of monitors available these days. I would like to use mine for reading documents with lots of text and few pictures (like webpages) and watching movies. I don't think I need a high refresh rate because it wouldn't be for gaming so much. Would IPS monitors be best for this? Do features like HDR or being LED make a difference to these?

I find higher resolution for reading text to be the most beneficial. 1440p or 2160p at a minimum. Especially if the screen size isn't massive (for the best PPI). My aging eyes really like reading on 4K screens.

IPS and HDR would be beneficial for movies. I love my IPS monitor, but those panels do cost a premium. Using it for a bit now, I won't buy another TN panel again. TN have much better contrast and do blacks and whites better. IPS has fantastic color reproduction.
