Portrait Monitors to Compliment 27" 1440p?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am looking to add two portrait monitors to my 27" 1440p monitor in Landscape. I know options are limited. What choices do I have and what has worked the best for you guys?

Well, sadly all I can find on the subject is 19" 1440x900 which would look bad next to a 1440p. There is a 17" 1280x1024 but they don't fit the screen as well as the 19". This is making me pretty mad as I want to do what you are doing.

Ya it sucks for us. I'm using a 24" Asus monitor on each side of this in Landscape right now and I guess it's not bad, but wish it sat flush.

I am going to not have the money for another 3-4 months for the rig and monitors so I will be hoping prices go down on 1440p's and get 3 of them from Asus for hopefully $300 at 27" each, maybe 24" and put them in portrait mode.. I will do measurements and see, because I don't want them to tall.

The 24" monitors I have really stick out. Like 3" on top and 3" on the bottom. Not the best looking. My three monitors in LLL are really taking up desk space though.

If I ever got 3 monitors in LLL I would make sure I had them hanging and with enough room for me to have 2 keyboards inbetween them and the closest point of the desk to me. Right now I am going to be getting a nice L shaped Desk to maxamize the corner space with the 3 monitors, it will look nice and sleek at night with a black desk, dark-themed coding IDE, backlit keyboard and mouse, and my rig with minimal LED's to have enough lighting on logo's (I don't want to make my rig look like a miniature rave party is going on).

But darn it man, it pisses me off there is no easy way to get 19" 1440p portrait monitors. I know it is possible because Apple does it with their laptops.
