Using a Dell 24" 16:10 + Dell 23" 16:9 monitors (Any issues?)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, got a really good deal on the Dell U2412M + Dell P2312H monitors.

I managed to talk with a service rep into giving me a good price for both including 5 years of warranty. The reason why i choose the 23" is for it to fit within my budget and I'm not too keen on having a dual monitor setup for gaming / entertainment purposes.

When I'm studying, I would like to have Ms office open on the 24" monitor and notes / Wikipedia opened on the 23" in portrait mode. Seeing that the aspect ratio of these monitors are different, the 24" being 16:10 and the 23" being 16:09, would I run into any issues? Would the resolution be fine (1920 X 1200 + 1920 X 1080). What I'm hoping to hear is that the integration between these 2 panels would be as clear as crystal biggrin.gif

I ran 1920x1200 in landscape with 1080p in portrait for a bit and I did not notice any problems with it, with the exception that I made the bad choice of using a TN panel monitor for the portrait monitor. The bad vertical viewing angles of TN panels makes the colours in portrait shift very easily, and even looking straight on I saw some colour shift..
