What Second Monitor for Lightroom?
Jan 31, 2013

Background:

I do all of my Lightroom and photoshop work on a Sony Viao laptop with a 2GB Radeon Graphics card.  I'm happy enough with the 1920X1080 Sony screen.

I plugged in my wife's 21" monitor and it worked quite well, including calibration.  LR was happy to put the edit window on the large screen.  As you may guess, this didn't go down too well with my bride.

So here I am looking for advice

The resolution of my laptop is fine with me.  But I really want the second display so I can see a full A4 image.

What do we know about the displays that turn 90 degrees to view in portrait mode?

I may be crazy but I'd like to spend as little as possible = €450 max

What else do you need to know to help me?
