Pivoting monitor
Posted by: RE:up

Anyone have recommendations on a monitor that pivots (landscape to portrait)?

24 inch ips $100 to 200. Was looking at an HP 24mh FHD on Amazon, but the description is vague at best on the pivoting feature. Plus HP support page says a driver is needed, but they only supply drivers for Windows. Perhaps Mac OS has that capability built in?

Will be used with my son's Macbook 13 retina, about 2014 vintage I think. He writes orchestral scores and portrait mode should save a lot of scrolling.

Thanks!

Mac OS Display control panel enables display rotation. Windows also has a control panel that enables display rotation. The driver may be for automatic adjustment as the display is rotated.

My son currently has one Dell monitor in landscape mode. I can't flip my 32 inch LG as it's too big to do so. But the OS will enable display rotation.

We are using the HP 24" E243i (with speaker bar), runs around $200 for our work.

I like this monitor a lot.

Almost every Dell ultrasharp has this feature... I have this one.

27": [deals.dell.com]

Although for 27", Id want 2556 x 1440

Or you can buy a pivoting mount, if you already have a non-pivoting monitor.

Ultrasharp. Pivot options built in to macOS and Win 10, no extra software needed.
