Bro this Dell U2414H does looks good, but it has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 px -

whereas the Dell U2412M has got 1920 x 1200 px resolution, which means more desktop space and therefor more charts to be viewed easily.

Although the thin bezel is definitely a very good plus point of the first one. If there is some other model available with similarly thin bezel but 1920 x 1200 px resolution, then that would be even better.

This has a screen resolution of 1920x1080, which is the same as what you get on cheaper 20.5" monitors. The main USP of this monitor is the super thin borders. For most multi monitor uses, thin borders are a "nice to have" feature, but not critical.

No point in getting bigger monitors with the same 1920x1080 resolution. They will just waste desktop space.

Hi No1,

I have a monitor slot on a side of my lap top Dell Inspiron 1318, as below.

Can you suggest what are the options to attach a bigger screen size monitor to my laptop via this port ?

It is a VGA / SVGA port - so you can connect it to a monitor / LCD / TV. But you might need a VGA convertor box based on the output in addition to a cable. Older monitors should work without a converter.

It will not transmit audio to your monitor / LCD TV - so your TV will not play sound.

It will not support hot-plugging (you can connect it to a monitor while the laptop is running and expect it to work). You will have to shut-down the laptop, connect and start it again.

Thanks

These days it is next to impossible to get a monitor with 1920x1200 resolution, almost all monitors in the market are with a 1920x1080 resolution.

I would suggest buying a cheap samsung/lg 20.5" monitor with hdmi or dvi input.

Is there any specific reason for getting a thin bezel on the monitor?

In my experience, it does not make a huge difference if your monitors are a bit far apart too. And even if you have a monitor with a very thin bezel, spanning a window across 2 monitors will not work very well. Best suggestion for a trader would be to keep charts and windows restricted to one monitor and use a different chart on another monitor.

It will support hot plugging on most modern laptops.

Just get any regular LCD monitor and you should be able to set it up as a secondary display and get extended desktop.

Unless you have a very old laptop or a cheap netbook, you should be able to run any modern monitor with a vga input and a 1920x1080 full hd panel. No need for any convertors, etc if you are using a regular lcd/led flat panel monitor with a vga input.
