It would be interesting and helpful, if those that are using an external monitor with their new M model radio, were to post here what brand and model of external monitor or HD/UDH tv rhey are using.
Also, since some of us have experienced querks with monitors, list what their problems were and how they have worked around them. Not everyone is having issues, so it might be nice to create a list of monitors that play nice with the new M model radios.
Here's mine:
Tried two different Samsung monitors. One with DVI-D input (older 24")
The other a 6 month old 27" with HDMI input.
Both had the sideways issue.
Third monitor I tried was an old Sceptre 22" with
DVI input. (On the DVI & DVI-D Monitors I used cables that had HDMI on one end and DVI-D on the other.
Only the Sceptre has worked best. On start up it quickly shows a sideways image on the monitor and then it rights itseld and the radios display.
Works great after that.
So, what works best for you?

I purchased a Acer 27 inch monitor.  No radio as of yet.  Late March hopefully.

James,  I have not tried it with my 27" monitors but I did connect it to my 49" Sony 4K TV
( XBR49X800E) and it works. It was sideways at one time in the startup but corrected itself during the process.

Does anyone else find it nearly impossible to close the intel display adapter window?  Maybe I was not waiting long enough as its very slow. But the X in the top right is so far into the corner it was hard to click.
