I recently got a new 24″ Samsung monitor/tv because the 19″ monitor that I was using was starting to seem small, especially since they have almost all 22″ monitors at work now.
Originally I was just looking at how much 22″-24″ monitors were on newegg. When I saw this monitor/tv I thought it would be great for a dorm room.
As you can see in the photos, I decided to go with portrait mode on the old 19″ Samsung that I was using, but it wasn’t as easy as it should have been. A lot of the monitors that are sold come with stands that let you flip them sideways, but mine didn’t. I put together a custom VESA stand out of some wood we had in the shed last night. So far it’s working out pretty good.
Update: By popular demand, here are some pics of the stand I built.
