Anyone have any clue if the stand on the 27" S2740L is swappable with and or all Dell stands?
I am trying to run 3 of the 27"s in portrait but I need stands that pivot/portrait
I need to know this too.
Are all VESA stands are compatible?
Like my S2440L stand has this type of slot, with a grove in the middle:
and I want to buy a new stand to replace it so I can swivel or adjust its height!
Can I just buy this Dell U2410F stand & just place it in the slot even though the slot is shaped a little differently?
Will that work?
You will need this adapter http://www.ebay.com/itm/DELL-VESA-Mount-Adapter-for-S2340L-S2340M-S2240L-S2240M-/200883887468 in order to mount the monitor to any standard vesa stand or mount.
That one does not work for the S2440L you need this one. http://www.ebay.com/itm/DELL-VESA-Mount-Adapter-for-S2440L-/200946180643?pt=US_TV_Mounts_Brackets&hash=item2ec9536223
Or for that matter, can someone just recommend me a replacement VESA stand that can both rotate & be adjusted for height?
From what I have seen of it might need a nut and locking washer because the bracket does not appears to be threaded, but that is pretty cheap and available at most hardware stores.So I just insert that into my monitor & any VESA stand will then fit into the adapter?
No screws or extra hooks?
How is the glare to other glossy panels such as the Apple Cinema Display?
I have the HP 27BW right now, but the build quality was a bit of a letdown. Considering the S2740L but heard problems with the 'overshoot' and non-uniformity.
Let's nip this in the bud immediately, at least one person has been banned recently for this resolutions and screen ratios crap. Go buy a U2713HM if you want high dpi. 1080p will still be good for many users, especially those running low spec systems and/or wanting consoles, bluray and satellite/cable receivers on the same system.
Whilst your first comment was not as conspicuous and annoying as some, I'll just remind you that the displays forum recently had to have its' own set of rules and hard line non tolerance of those continually posting stupid ratio/resolution arguments in every thread. May I draw your attention to a similar complaint I made in another thread and Kyle's response:http://hardforum.com/showpost.php?p=1039000744&postcount=43If I see this thread start to descend into the same kind of nonsense as the above thread I won't hesitate to press the report post button. As for your pissy comment about supermarket shopping, I suggest you read the forum rules again. Rule #1 would be a good place to start.
Also I already pointed out that there are no 27" 1080p IPS monitors, and this is surely the only 27" IPS with a glass screen, whereas 1440p users can choose from Apple, Samsung and a variety of lesser brands and Korean imports.
Finally, as you seem to need to look down on people that are looking for 1080p displays consider that: a) you just sound like a ****, b) people are allowed to have more than one monitor to perform different jobs on different systems.
I bought a S2440l last week from Best Buy online since the ones around my place were out of stock due to the sale price. The first one has a couple dead pixels and what looked like dust/dirt stuck between the panel and glass. It looks like there is something putting pressure on the pixel(s). I went to exchange it yesterday once the local stores had them back in stock.
The second one was even worse. It has one dead pixel and again what looked to be dust/dirt stuck between the panel and glass. This caused discoloration to about a half dozen pixels. The bottom edges also looked to be pressing against the glass causing two circles of discoloration. They looked the same as if you put pressure a LCD screen without glass covering.
