I don’t think any kind of respite will be availabe due to chip shortage. It is likely expected to last another year. And by that time the present inflated price may be a normal one.

4k monitors prices are mostly stable.
Only 1080p’s are a huge mess, post first wave.
Which monitor are u looking to buy bro?

These variants may be handy displays, but may not be a replacement for the hard-core extended display lovers. They are hardly 10" I guess. Most extended monitors are of atleast 19" and higher. The resolution etc parameters are of different league

These cannot be bigger due to the weight it adds to the existing frame, and eventually on the laptop display. Even with the 1kg, I will not be comfortable to put that weight on my laptop display. Although it has a support stand, people hardly use it, or even if used, it may not be sturdy enough to support the entire weight. This eventually puts stress on laptop hinges and other parts.

i am looking for something reasonable for graphics, video editing and vfx stuff. 1080p 24 inch is fine but i dont mind picking up a 4k if there is significant price drop

As of now I don’t think so. Maybe wait for some sale or card offers.

Looks like you need it for the kind of work you are dealing with. Should be worthy to purchase one.

paji are there small monitors like the one’s shown in xebec which can be connected with a laptop (by not sticking with the laptop) but separately.

No idea, you may buy the one you mentioned, but choose not to hang it on laptop display.

Since the displays are 10", most tab covers should hold them, or a few simple mobile holders should hold those displays in place.
