Three 22" eyefinity portrait? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
Anyways, regarding portrait mode, I notice something weird. When I had 3 monitors connected to my graphic card ( not in eyefinity setup) I'm unable to change each individual monitor to "portrait". Now that I sold one of my monitor, the other two can be set to portrait freely. What's up with that?

just do landscape, in portrait it'll be like looking at a super HD TV with 2 seams in it...landscape will give you a better panoramic

Do you understand the concept of resolution?

If you would, you wouldn't have made that post.

I tried my 20" in portrait and it was too narrow before you hit the bezel seams. It felt almost claustrophobic. I'm sure with 24"+ it looks a sweet.

This is exactly the insight I was looking for. I've been searching everywhere for the best LCD deals ranging from $100-$200. I was even thinking about buying three 20" LCD and portrait it. Then again I thought it might be to narrow but I wasn't sure. Now I'm thinking of buying two more 24" but resolution have to be 1920x1200 to match my SyncMaster T240. It's hard to find a thin bezel 24" with the width of 1200 resolution without going over $200.

Whatever you do, the display you buy must have at least 1024 pixels vertical in landscape mode.

Websites are designed for 1024x768 (yes, they still are), so they scale to a size usable on 1024 pixels wide displays. If your monitor has less than 1024 vertical pixels, it's gonna be unusable in portrait mode.

Keep that in mind.


For example: 1920x1080 and 1680x1050 are both VERY near the limit of being usable in portrait. 1280x1024 is AT the limit of being usable. A 1440x900 display would not be usable in portrait while browsing.

Get it?

I tried landscape for a while, gaming was totally different to me. Larger images, more screen vertically to run your mouse (harder for ppl with lower mouse sense) and it just seemed to narrow. It looks cool and was the first thing I tried when I setup my Eyefinity, but I switched it back to landscape for better space and normal resolution looking games lol.
