Vertical Computer Monitor
« on: February 11, 2020, 07:38:05 AM »
Hi all ... I need a recommendation. 

Since I am doing lots of orchestra compositions I really need a vertical or swing monitor. 

All the scrolling up and down is a real pain in the A=440.  Recommendations?

A very good question! I'm not planning to buy one tomorrow but I'm curious about the answer nevertheless.

I use a special stand (3 of them, actually) that allows me to turn my monitor from landscape to portrait (as well as raise or lower the monitor easily).
they cost, at the time, around $140 each.
Brand name: Ergotron.

Michel,

What is the model number of your stand?  The company manufactures multiple stands.

I can't find the model number on them.
but they have probably moved on from that specific model anyways.  it's been a few years.

Hi Michel and all,

I just bought an HP VH240a monitor.  It easily rotates 90 degrees and is a breeze to setup.  And it is not expensive.

I hope you don't go all orchestral now that you have this and neglect chamber music :)

It looks like a very nice buy, enjoy it!
