Samsung 24" monitor on HDMI laptop

My 15" widescreen on my laptop was fine until I wanted to view A3 pages on it. This was needed when getting Read and Write to read pages out to me. At that point, at University, I was struggling. I researched it and found out you can plug almost anything in the HDMI port. My new laptop has only a HDMI out.

The new monitor is a Samsung S24D300HS 24 inch LED HDMI Monitor which was £100 from Amazon. I'm not one to buy much new stuff these days but I expect to have this monitor until it dies, or I do. It has made so much difference to my working and studying environment, I haven't viewed the laptop screen for weeks, but at least I know it is there if I need to go portable. Even 20/21 inch monitors seem tiny now. Also, I hope, that the modern monitor is being fugal in the electric.

Through student loans and as I have dyslexia I was given some free goodies to help me. This included an external USB keyboard and mouse, which I found out are worth £5 each, but I am using them right now, so they can't be that bad.

My stereos - a history

My Stereo(s) (Hi-fi) The rise and fall and rise again. A History of my stereo endeavours.

Part 1 - from a radio to the Pioneer

Part 1 | Part 2 | My stereo in June 2015

This is no boast but I love my stereo. Having a good stereo is the centre of my life and my only essential possession for someone who is not really into possessions.

Early days

I started my stereo life with a radio my Grandad gave me. Then I got my Dad's old setup (record deck and Sinclair System 2000 compact amp) which I added another one of my Grandads radio's to.

My Dad's amp was like this only black:

The Pioneer compact hi-fi

When I got a proper job I was able to start saving for something better and I bought a Pioneer compact Hi-fi which after a time I really started to hate. The Pioneer quality was lacking from this unit and really a lot of it was for show, like the twin display spectrum analyser. I hated the way the cassette and cd decks clunked about. Many things frustrated me with it, like th…

Dell KB522 Wired Business Multimedia Keyboard

Now I have a 24" monitor on my laptop I find that the £5 keyboard is really not up to it. Hence the Dell KB522 Wired Business Multimedia Keyboard. Very nice. I have started my degree in Creative and Professional Wiring this year and think I have a lot of typing ahead, hence the keyboard. It was only once I got this I realised how hard I had to hit the keys on the old one, as first of all with this one it hurt I was hitting them so hard. Pretty much sorted on the computer front now. I bought Dell hoping for longevity from this item. I don't like to buy new stuff all the time from an environmental standpoint.
