    Just an update on my spec. I am now running 1 Samsung 2343BWX and 2 ENVISION P2271WHL. I thought the d-sub to displayport adapter I was using at 4320*900 wouldn't work at 5760*1080 but it worked without issue.

    Loving L4D2.:rockout:

    Hey Rebelstar or anyone else for that matter running Portrait Mode, does CCC ask you which way you want to rotate your monitors when you set them up like that?

    Yes, you need to rotate screens in the CCC before creating Eyefinity Group.
    HossHuge says thanks.

    I know it asks you if you are creating a portrait or landscape group, but I don't know if it asks which way you rotated them. Do your monitors rotate both ways?

    That makes sense. What was I thinking....:banghead:

    The reason I'm asking is because of the bezel. I want to be able to rotate both my outside monitors in different directions. Like so:

    Hey Everybody,

    I just wanna run this idea by you (for a portrait set-up) and see what you think. I'm thinking about mounting my middle monitor to a board and than using two of those mounts on each side. I think those mounts would stick out enough to help give me the angles I would need.

    What do you think?

    And if not, I could add extra wood to the outside monitors.

    I decided against it, but someone could use my idea if they so desired.

    I picked up another Envision P2271WHL instead. I noticed the Samsung was losing it's brightness compared to the newer LED Envision models I'm using now. It looks much better as well.

    On another note, is it time to change the name of the club to include our Nvidia brethern who can now (finally, 2.5 years later:shadedshu) multi-screen?

    For example, The TPU Multi-screen Club.

    I'm hoping that since both companies are doing it now that more games will allow for multi-screens. I was sad that Driver: San Fran and FEAR 3 didn't.

    Still haven't gotten around to running new benches on this to check, but I changed out the middle monitor's DVI cable for an HDMI, and I swapped the Accell mini-DP to DVI adapter I was using for the one that's in the box. I noticed I'm no longer having issues with the monitor on the mini-DP jack not powering up when it comes back from stand-by though.

    Anyone have any comments on the cheaper Acer monitors? Been looking at something like the G215HVAbd. I've just been concerned because I've read a few times that if a monitor has only 1 digital input it usually is not very good.

    Just wonder.

    it doesnt mention viewing angles and its not LED, so i'd be hesitant to recommend it. cant speak for image quality.

    I couldn't care less if it was LED or not. Was just looking for cheaper recommendations on 1080p monitors for Eyefinity.

    Got any comments on the Acer S211HLbd?

    Also is there anything cheaper out there for triple stands other then the ones on Newegg or creating something custom?

    how was the quality using dvi over hdmi or vice versa?

    OT : the reason why i don't want to try eyefinity because of the "BEZEL"! it's killing the beauty of it.

    The monitor is thin other than that there is not much to say about it. You could see if amazon has a stand you like at a good price.

    I bought the Articulating Triple Mount by SIIG for $50 I run them in portrait. I have not been running all three of them lately been using both computers.

    How bad does it get when it is in portrait? It's not a gloss screen is it? (Can't stand them.)

    Looking at the Newegg reviews, it looks like a few people seem to like them for an Eyefinity setup.

    eyefinity usage

    hello,
    I have a question regarding the usage of eyefinity:

    I would like to set up a 2x1 group of displays using Eyefinity, but I need that the upper display is rotated 180°.

    I understand that the rotation must be done before grouping, but i didn't discover how to do that.

    This my first post in this interesting group

    thanks in advance

    Due to eyefinity limitations you can't do that. For eyefinity all displays must be in the same rotate position. :ohwell:

    However, if you need these monitors set in that configuration, you should be able to do so in the Windows Display Properties. Eyefinity mostly comes into play when doing three or more monitors.

    eyefinity and display rotation

    Hi,
    thank you for your quick answers.
    I have simplified my request: I really need to create a 2x2 configuration with the upper displays rotated of 180° because the base bezel of the displays contains the brand name and the speaker, so it's thick.

    I understand that windows 7 permits the configuration I need, but I would like to set the "bezel correction" that is a feature of eyefinity.
    Maybe that other software do this.

    Thank you again

    Sorry - your post above said a "2x1" configuration, not a "2x2." Rebelstar is right - you need all the monitors in the Eyefinity group to be the same resolution and orientation.

    Is there any monitor anyone would recommend buying if you decided to de-bezel it?

    Is there any thin monitors that anyone would recommend if you didn't want to go the de-bezel route?

    Thanks

    since the lamps are usually in the bezel, de-bezeling wont work well. just find some thin screens.
