    Hello Forum,

    I have just purchased a new production desk since I am partially a DJ, musician, gamer, and a technician all-in-one. All in all, I am satisfied with the newly included space on my table until I look at the monitor I currently own, which is an ASUS MS238H.

    Due to the new monitor platform included with the desk, the added elevation distorts the viewing of my currently display. To make things worse, there is no tilt adjustment at all with the stupid ring-like stand behind the monitor. So how, I need a new monitor.

    Luckily, I am an employee of a local Canada Computers location and have my eyes on the fairly recent GW series by Benq. The problem is with the new desk, therefore new distance from the display, I have no clue which size is right for me anymore. Before, my old desk gave me about under 3 feet of viewing distance. The new desk gives me about 5 feet. The GW series introduces a 24, and 27 inch model. I have the option of two 27s however I can squeeze in three 24s with the option of expanding to six later on. Which solution do you think is better?

    if your close to a wall buy a vesa wall mount with adjusable arm... should be a lot cheaper than a new monitor...

    good luck...

    27inch every time m8...

    i can see why it don't have mounting holes, it's like footless monitor ^^

    Lol funny. Yeah well the monitor I got is quite nice, just that thanks to the elevated platform with the new desk it has no tilt and an unacceptable viewing distance.
