jerryab,

I looked at the specs for lots of monitors today. They seem to differentiate from each other by using of terms tilt, swivel, pivot. There were those that specified tilt only, and then these that I looked at that specified tilt, swivel and/or pivot. The HPs that another poster linked above don't show the portrait orientation in the product pictures, either, but that poster says he has used these.

Not a single of the monitors that I looked at specify portrait and landscape, or even just landscape. I have to believe that the terms pivot and swivel mean what they mean. I guess I can always call the companies and ask.

Also, thanks for the suggestion about the monitor stand. I went and searched for these on Amazon. I don't know if I want to go that route if these monitors I've priced will actually do what I want.

You mentioned that a 24" monitor will show an 11 X 17 inch image. That's good to know. I don't need that much screen space; most of the PDFs are scans of letter size documents, sometimes legal size. It's nice to have the extra space, though.

Thanks for the thoughts, all the comments have helped,

Rita
