F/U to external monitor
Posted by: jardster

Just got the new HP Z27 (quick shipping by B+H) and have started the set up. I've never had this much screen real estate, and I'm not exactly sure how I'll end up doing it. For now, it's running side by side with my MBP. Amazing how much extra space I have and how much less I'll need to be flipping between windows since I can have a bunch open at once.

Auskey Webcam was plug and play.

I originally thought I'd need a riser to put the monitor on, but I'm pretty happy with the height, so I'll leave it on the desk for now.

I've got to get some speakers so I don't have to use the MBP speakers. Any suggestions? (again, don't need to spend much).

Here is a picture (I haven't worked out where I'll put the cables yet).

Thanks for all of the help in picking it out!

Awesome.

You really dont realize how much more clear 4K is unless you have it next to a non-4K screen. (I have 27" 5K next to a standard 27", its noticable)

It doesnt have height adjustment?

Budget on speakers? A lot of sound? Or just a little? Doesnt look like theres a lot of room, so maybe some simpler 2.1s. Or do you have room for a sub below the desk?
