Vertical Monitor suggestions, setup?

Hi,

I'm looking to purchase an extra monitor to go with my 27 inch curved montor.
I was looking to mount it vertically. the vertical monitor just used for browsing on the side.

I was looking for some monitor suggestions? can I just buy a regular 24 inch?
also would you recommended IPS monitors?

thanks in advance

You can just buy a regular 24". That's what I have. The main thing you need to take into consideration is the viewing angles and mounting orientation. Some cheaper monitors have almost no viewing angle from the "bottom" angle, so it's possible to get a monitor setup and not be able to see it properly. So research the vertical viewing angle of the panel you're getting. Not sure what tech works best here, someone will be along with that info. My Dell Ultrasharps work excellent for this.

Regular 24" IPS monitor will do the trick.
Using a dual monitor arm with both monitors would be ideal so it's easy to reconfigure the layout.
RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and getting the stuff I want without paying full price like Joe Shmoe did.
This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.
