I bought this monitor Acer CB282K but as https://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/model/UM.PB2AA.001

As I had already bought a Dell P2419H which is nice to rotate and work while standing but now the new one which has the same ergonomics specifications is not rotating sideways, which was the main selling point for me.

It's replaceable and not returnable on amazon, so I guess I am stuck with this one now?

Is there a good 4k monitor which can rotate 180 degree so I can turn it to my bedside and watch Netflix.

EDIT1:- the monitors model which I bought is - UM.PB2SS.001

If you want to know about the monitor specs, go directly to the vendor site and check it, those comparison sites often have incorrect in formation.
The link to the monitor shows it can't rotate

Stand

Tilt (-5°~35°)

Height adj (7.09")


If you don't want the hassle of returning the monitor you can just by a stand for it, the monitor has a standard 100x100 vesa mount option.

What I would really suggest is buying the same monitor you already have or your screen are very likely going to look different which is annoying to look at.

Do you have the link in amazon?

Sometimes sellers have the wrong pics and specs listed. I believe the model (UM.PB2AA.001 ) can rotate.

See link. 17 seconds through.

Is this the same monitor you have? If it's not, you should be able to return it, as long as its showing that exact model on the listing. The seller probably sent you the wrong one.

Call Amazon. They will correct this.

This is the monitor which I bought and the model number matches to what I bought ie. UM.PB2SS.001 on monitor backside as well as the amazon website.

And the monitor is rotating just as shown in your video, but it's not moving sideways as the dell ones do.

it can Tilt
it can go up down
it can be in vertical mode too but it doesn't rotate sideways like 180 degrees which I wanted.
So I can watch the monitor from other side,ie my bedside.

Ah you are looking for a swivel stand, yes they make those types of things for monitors. Just look for a swivel stand at whatever place you usually buy equipment from.
ahh cool that is perfect,

Now when i rotate it manually only issue i have is my 2 keyboards and 2 mouse wires get a bit cluttered, any solution for that, i thought of getting KVM switch but they delay input etc sometime so not sure about that.

Wireless mouse and keyboard LOL

Or just route them where they don't get in the way, or put a stand under the monitor with space for the wires to go under. Lots of ways to fix this, all are pretty obvious if you think about it for a minute. There is no magic secret to wire management, it's all pretty clear and in front of you.
