New monitors and desk setup



  • On the back of the multi-tasking thread. This is how I multi task everyday. However I got new shiny things to do it with today. 2-27" monitors (sides) 1-28" monitor (middle)
    and new stand that attaches to the edge of the desk. Love the height and the ability to have the monitors take up less desktop space. Now to get synergy on everything!

    I can't imagine only working on one monitor.

    It's ok, I only have one monitor now, too.

    The feeling is mutual 😃



  • Very nice setup.

    I have had two monitors for so long I have been saying for a year I need a third!

    Over the last 4 years I have turned my business clients into multi monitor users!

    I had three but went down to two and didn't really notice. The jump from one to two is huge, but from two to three I didn't find so useful.

    Maybe that's because the real sweet spot is bolded text4!

  • I'm used to traders having setups like that, up to nine monitors. It's cool and I can see scenarios where that would work well. I rarely do live monitoring, though, which is perfect for lots of monitors. For the type of work that I do, two to three seem to be ideal. You have to balance real estate, context switching (human optical) and task separation to find what is optimal for your use cases.

    Yeah I can see that...see that...lol. Seriously, I have even consider desktop switching. I really only thought of an extra monitor to keep my Marketing/web dev work separate from my other Tech work.

    I prefer to completely change the desktop rather than looking to another monitor for that.

    Which Windows program would you recommend?

    I don't use one currently. When on Linux it is a feature that I really like. I am so busy these days that working on multiple projects isn't an option currently 😞
