A monitor doesn't need to have great presence on your desktop to make an impact on your work. The Portrait PageMaster and Portrait PageView LCD panels weigh only 10.2 pounds each. The PageMaster measures 19.5 by 12.8 by 11 inches and the PageView is 15.2 by 12 by 2.
The 15-inch DSTN monitors perform bigger, thanks to their full-page display capability. Press a three-key combination or click on an icon, and the monitors pivot between Landscape and Portrait (full-page) modes. The Landscape mode lets you see a document horizontally.
With its tilt, swivel and pivot cradle, you can set the display to the most comfortable position for the work at hand. The PageMaster has a bezel stand, while you must manually pivot the PageView by extending its picture-frame stand. Both support maximum noninterlaced resolutions up to 1024x768 and work with Windows 3.x, 95 and NT.
LCDs produce images that are as sharp on the edges as in the center of the screen. The monitors give off no magnetic emissions and use only 30 watts of power.
PageMaster, $1,799; PageView, $1,699
