Choosing a good location for your display
Here are some key factors to consider when determining where to place your
m Be sure that the desk or table can support the display’s weight—
approximately 45.2 pounds (20.5 kg).
m Make sure that the power cord will reach an available AC outlet.
m Make sure that the display cable will reach from the back of the display to
your computer. The display cable should be unobstructed when you swivel
and tilt the display, so allow at least 6 inches (15 cm) of clearance in the
back. If you don’t allow enough clearance, the display connector might be
damaged when the cable hits an obstruction.
Positioning the display
Once your display is in place, either on top of your computer or next to it
on a desk or table, follow these steps:
1 Place the display so that the screen faces you.
2 Adjust the viewing angle of the display by tilting it up or down and turning it left or right
on its stand.
Position the display so that when you use it, no bright light is behind the
display or reflected on the screen. Your eyes should be about level with the
top edge of the screen and between 18 and 28 inches (45 to 70 cm) away.
Take occasional breaks when using your computer, to focus your eyes on
a distant object.
