People can only tell you their opinion and yours my differ.

Now that I've put up that disclaimer, 16:10>16:9. The extra height makes a huge difference. It may not sound like much but personally, I couldn't see myself going back to 16:9 ESPECIALLY if it's 1080p or less.

I'm not talking games or movies here, I don't do much of either of those on my PC but if you're browsing or editing, the extra height is going to be much better.

Without buying it and testing it, how would you know if a monitor properly displays text in portrait mode? I'm really curious because my monitor looks fuzzy when in portrait mode and I might actually like to get a few for editing in portrait mode one day.

Is there a certain spec I can look for?

So I received my monitor in the mail about two days ago.


Here they are side by side in landscape.


And this is how I prefer to have my monitors, in portrait mode.



So, in conclusion I think switching from 1080p to 1200p was a must. Honestly, I felt sort of cramped when I was at 1080. Gaming felt a little too close and internet browsing was too tight. Now with 1200p I feel more relaxed, or like viewing thing is portrait is less stressful. After this switch I feel like portrait mode should not be done with anything less than 1200p. But for landscape, 16:9 vs 16:10 is no big deal. Just ordered my second U2412HM

now I REALLY want that monitor thumb.gif


no room on my desk though, wish I did , but I ha a feeling that once you had that extra width in portrait mode you would never go back.

Yeah go for the 1920x1200 16:10 if you can.

Once you are used to it 1080p just seems a little blurry. You will notice the difference if you flick between then, small difference but still a difference.

I'm not a big fan of portrait mode nor do I think the difference of 120 columns of pixels would make an incredible difference. What I do believe is the more monitors you have, or if you step up to an extreme resolution i.e. 2560x1600 will give you the best results (well maybe not gaming FPS). It's like buying a Honda and an Acura when you could trade them both in an get a Porche wink.gif

Personally, I use 3x 1920x1080 in Nvidia Surround and I don't think I'll ever go to anything else except maybe a 2560x1600 or maybe a 1440 at the very least

I think portrait is pretty decent for reading papers, documents, maybe web, maybe coding, but 1080 horizontal is too little. On the other hand, monitors with 1920x1200 resolution are too tall in portrait, IMHO. Urgh.

Maybe this is off topic, but would there be decent options at 1600x1200 for portrait? 5:4 resolutions didn't really catch on past 1280x1024, right? Not like you can still find these things anyway, these days.

Yeah the extra 120 does not make much of a difference in landscape. But I feel that portrait is a must.
