Monitor recommendations

At TAGARNO we are dedicated to design and manufacture digital microscopes solutions, but we do not manufacture a TAGARNO branded monitor. With a customer base around the world, it will not be feasible to ship 3rd party monitors from TAGARNO.

The monitor is however an important part of any TAGARNO solution and hence TAGARNO will provide this guidance to purchase a monitor from a different vendor.

New monitor models emerges constantly while older models quickly reaches end of life. For that reason, TAGARNO cannot maintain a list of specific recommended model numbers. We will however list these common recommended monitor specifications to achieve the best user experience:

24” (Diagonal size)

Resolution

Full HD (1080p60) 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Aspect Ratio

16:9

Panel Type

IPS with 178° vertical/horizontal viewing angle

Response time

Input Connectors

HDMI (one preferably two ports)

Ergonomics adjustment
