[Micronet] Recommendations for 27" monitors

Beth Muramoto
I'm doing some research to purchase a standard, nothing fancy per se (doesn't need to be a cinema display or have high end graphics) 27" monitor from BearBuy, but I have to admit the choices are a bit overwhelming and wanted to get guidance on what features should one look for in a monitor or if anyone here has a recommendation? Dell or other company.

I should qualify that this is for use with a MacBook Pro. A person will be using a laptop for travel, but wants to use a large monitor versus buying a desktop iMac.

The only feature that the user expressed is the ability to do side-by-side windows to do comparisons. Kind of like the old days when we bought monitors that could be moved from tall portrait mode to long landscape mode. I'm not sure if a monitor plays all that big a role anymore, maybe it's a software trick, but I'm not savvy about what's out there now.

Any recommendations are welcome and as always appreciated.

Beth

Re: [Micronet] Recommendations for 27" monitors

Beth,

I would look at the Dell P2714H. I just got a Dell P2414H and have it in portrait mode right now. The great thing about the series of monitor is that they rotate and it is a simple software setting to apply once you turn the monitor

The Monoprice monitors get some pretty good reviews, and have really nice prices.  Check out http://www.monoprice.com/Category?c_id=113&cp_id=11320.

Also see http://www.cnet.com/topics/monitors/products/ for some reviews...

Cheers,

Ian

Luke,

Ah, cool! Thanks! I didn't know that monitors that rotate even still existed. I'll investigate for sure.

Re: [Micronet] Recommendations for 27" monitors

Ian Crew
In terms of rotating monitors, any monitor with a VESA mount (industry-standard mounting holes) can be rotated if it's attached to a mount that supports rotation.  Mac OS has built-in rotation capability in System Preferences: no third-party software necessary.

Just cause I'm a fan of Monoprice (good value for money, I think), here's there page for monitor mounts: http://www.monoprice.com/Category?c_id=113&cp_id=11326

Cheers,

Ian

It may also be useful to know that the  Dell P2714H is in stock at 4th street. You can order through CSS IT using a chart string and don't have to wait for it to come from Dell.

Re: [Micronet] Recommendations for 27" monitors

John Fuhs-Sooter
Checking current CSS IT stock, we have the following that would meet your needs:

Dell P2414H (less expensive but would require adapters, which we also have)
Apple 27" Thunderbolt (more expensive but would not require adapters)

We can get you these very quickly. Any others we can also special order for you as well. If you put in a ticket with us, someone from our Procurement and Provisioning dept will get back to you and help you go through options.

Luke,

Ah, cool! Thanks! I didn't know that monitors that rotate even still existed. I'll investigate for sure.

Beth,

I would look at the Dell P2714H. I just got a Dell P2414H and have it in portrait mode right now. The great thing about the series of monitor is that they rotate and it is a simple software setting to apply once you turn the monitor

I'm doing some research to purchase a standard, nothing fancy per se (doesn't need to be a cinema display or have high end graphics) 27" monitor from BearBuy, but I have to admit the choices are a bit overwhelming and wanted to get guidance on what features should one look for in a monitor or if anyone here has a recommendation? Dell or other company.

I should qualify that this is for use with a MacBook Pro. A person will be using a laptop for travel, but wants to use a large monitor versus buying a desktop iMac.

The only feature that the user expressed is the ability to do side-by-side windows to do comparisons. Kind of like the old days when we bought monitors that could be moved from tall portrait mode to long landscape mode. I'm not sure if a monitor plays all that big a role anymore, maybe it's a software trick, but I'm not savvy about what's out there now.

Any recommendations are welcome and as always appreciated.

Re: [Micronet] Recommendations for 27" monitors

Thanks for everyone's great responses! I will field the options to our user and whatever she chooses, I will go with. Thank you also to the CCS responses from Vivian and John and the processes to go through CSS as well as an option.

Re: [Micronet] Recommendations for 27" monitors

To all,

We just purchased 2 of these for our video edit showcase bay. It is by far the best monitor out there. But it is pricey....

Best,

Beth,

I would look at the Dell P2714H. I just got a Dell P2414H and have it in portrait mode right now. The great thing about the series of monitor is that they rotate and it is a simple software setting to apply once you turn the monitor

Dell or other company.

I should qualify that this is for use with a MacBook Pro. A person will be using a laptop for travel, but wants to use a large monitor versus buying a desktop iMac.

The only feature that the user expressed is the ability to do side-by-side windows to do comparisons. Kind of like the old days when we bought monitors that could be moved from tall portrait mode to long landscape mode. I'm not sure if a monitor plays all that big a role anymore, maybe it's a software trick, but I'm not savvy about what's out there now.

Any recommendations are welcome and as always appreciated.

Checking current CSS IT stock, we have the following that would meet your needs:

Dell P2414H (less expensive but would require adapters, which we also have)
Apple 27" Thunderbolt (more expensive but would not require adapters)

We can get you these very quickly. Any others we can also special order for you as well. If you put in a ticket with us, someone from our Procurement and Provisioning dept will get back to you and help you go through options.

It may also be useful to know that the  Dell P2714H is in stock at 4th street. You can order through CSS IT using a chart string and don't have to wait for it to come from Dell.

Someone from CSS should answer authoritatively, but I was wondering
