post #11 of 14
buy 1 monitor that you want to keep, use it and the samsung until you can get the samsung sold, buy another identical monitor once you sell the samsung.

profit.

you know...thats the simplest solution that i never thought about...i fail biggrin.gif....ive just been trying to pair together the samsung with something else...never considered just getting a 2nd monitor and then getting rid of the samsung and buying a duplicate of the 2nd monitor

now the question is...do i want to pair to low quality monitors or 2 higher quality...hm thinking.gif

thanks for the link...but ive actually already owned one of those for a few days...it wasnt a good monitor at all...lots and lots of back light bleed and the monitor i got had some weird color shift from left to right...it was a pretty bad monitor overall IMO but its possible it was defective

honestly the best monitor ive got so far is my current 2nd monitor...which is this Dell ST2220 21.5" LCD which i picked up from staples for 130$...which is one of only a couple 21.5" monitors with an HDMI port which is nice IMO
