My winportrait monitor works great; however our doc department uses
FrameMaker and I've had some problems with font sizes since I got my new
monitor. For example, I need to have documents at 80% zoom in order for
them to appear normal. My coworkers also have winportrait monitors, yet
they need to have their documents at 140% or 160%. This isn't a huge
deal, but it is a little annoying when we all have to save each file at
100% zoom before we ship our CD-ROM manuals to clients.

I used one of these monitors for a couple years and loved it. I used
it almost always in the portrait position, but when I wanted
landscape, I just had to grab the corner of the monitor and turn it
around. The display adjusted immediately.
