Multi portrait Monitors

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Need a bit of help. Been looking for 3 nice monitors with thin bezels to run in portrait. Can't seem to find any online with pictures that look too thin, and BestBuy has a crap selection to look at. So I was wondering if anyone could suggest some good ones. As my current Acers in landscape have the weird curve at the bottom, and it makes for an awkward portrait display.

Prefernces;
21-23" (21/21.5 prefered, no larger than 23)
LCD or LED
$100-200/each

Brand not really an issue, and any combination of the above would be nice. The cheaper the better though, since I am on somewhat of a budget.

I do like that samsung, but very pricey indeed.

Looking again I found these 2,

Dell P Series P2212H

Dell E Series E2211H
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824260037

Thoughts on them? No reviews on newegg, but most Dells seem to be good...

I ran three monitors in portrait for a couple months...
Don't cheap out and buy TN panels. The color shifting will drive you nuts.
IPS montiors are the way to go.
I used 3x Dell U2211Hs; they have an excellent stand, thin bezel, and since it's an IPS, you get perfect color no mater what.
They're right in your price range too of about $200. I got one for sale as well. wink.gif

Good advice, didn't think about panel type. The only U2211H's that are coming up are $250'ish, but Dell only has U2212HM on their site and at $219, I'm assuming they're the same or close to the same? If so that would look to be just about perfect.

Yeah, saw those. Vega is crazy.

The U2212HM would do the job perfectly. thumb.gif
