Second Monitor F/U
Posted by: MartyStickle

Well I've been using the Dell (S2421H) as a second monitor for almost a week now and I'm quite pleased. It's really bright and although there's a marked difference in resolution, I don't really notice it. The iMac is 5120 X 2880 and the Dell is 1920 X 1080.

I'm using the second monitor for email and also for ppt. Sometimes I do web searches on the main display and cut/paste stuff into ppt presentations, etc. I also do YouTube downloads with ClipGrab on th main monitor and then I can paste them into ppt on the Dell. Works well. Lots of screen real estate is nice. Works really well with Zoom too. When I teach, I'm using the iMac screen for the screen share ppt and the Dell for Zoom so I can still see a bunch of folks on the Dell.

In response to a question from jdc, Dell did not include a USBc to HDMI cable. I had ordered a cable from Amz for that though. They did include an HDMI cable though.

Anyway I do appreciate the advice from you great folks.
