High Definition Monitor Choices

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I'm in an interesting position. Currently I have a single u2211h that I use in portrait mode, and after quite a while I think I will finally upgrade my display. Now what to upgrade to is my question.


This will be entirely for productivity.

I will use this mainly with Eclipse/Aptana, Visual Studio, Xilinx Vivando, Synopsis, Matlab/Mathematica and Cadence/other EDA tools.

I would like a lot of screen real estate, preferably with vertical space. I will use this with my u2211h in portrait.

My options are:

- 1440p Korean monitor PLS/SIPS with adjustable stand for portrait

- 2560 x 1080p Dell u2913hm in portrait

- 2 more u2211h in portrait for 3 screens

- 1600p Monoprice monitor in portrait

- Seiki 39" 4k TV in landscape 2160p

This is all with a laptop with displayport although I'll use active adapters, or with my windows desktop with an HD4000 iGPU and thunderbolt from my motherboard.


I wasn't sure whether to post this in the programming subcategory or here.

I won't be gaming or watching any videos, this is just for work and classes.


I usually like to have a Schematic open, a pdf open, a MS word/MS Onenote/LaTeX document editor and some IDE/ISE open. This is a pipe dream with my desktop, and barely possible with my laptop and portrait display.

Any advice would be appreciated, thank you for your help.

I'm really leaning towards the seiki for screen real estate. But the u29 from Dell is also looking like an interesting choice.
