What's Your Monitor Set Up?

Have you ever heard of the phrase multi-monitor? Have you seen anything like that before? or do you own one? If yes, now is the time to showcase your expensive yet productive monitors that give you a more pleasurable computing experience.


To all who have this kind of monitor set-up, I encourage you to personally state some of the advantages and disadvantages of using this kind of set up. Come'n I know you have one!

BTW, you can also post a picture of you while playing with your monitors.

Maybe one day when I have many more websites and the money is rolling in, I'll get one of those. I can then sit back and watch it all happening

The best advantage of having a multi-monitor is making yourself more productive. Multi-tasking is the right word I think.

I personally love Licky's Setup!

That's right! you can do your work in one monitor and play games on the other while watching youtube all in at the same time. Sweet!

Anyone with dual monitors will probably agree, they don't typically do that. lol.

I mean, sure, you can (and will at first) but once you get a dual monitor it really just becomes an extension of the primary monitor, not necessarily a different space. So while you can play a game in one and then have youtube playing in the other, you're not going to get very far in your game if you're watching youtube so it kind of get unproductive.

What dual monitors truly excel at is the expansion of the desktop area as a single palette to work on.

Most people tend to run the main application they are using in the primary and (in the case of design) move pallets or clone views on the secondary. Coders like to use the secondary for secondary applications like server client connections/ftp/web pages for testing - rather than always alt-tabing on a single screen.

Now for me, yes I have 5 but you'll see in the pic that my two large monitors are my primaries - they are on my work computer (and play of course) while the other smaller two are on the server which also streams my music and video (to keep that process off my main) and serves as a backup and host for the network printer. The laptop is all communications like email, IM etc etc so I also don't have those running on my main either.

In this V7Tech Blog post, Get your Monitors on!,I detail how I use all 5 monitors with one mouse and one keyboard (even thought they are on three separate computers) using a tcp/ip km. So they act like 5 connected monitors.

I've gone the dual monitor way some time ago. Use the secondary monitor for my stock market tracking applications so I don't close it when I'm doing some other work.

When I read this article about Bill Gates I decided to go to dual monitors at work.

I have two PC's [19'' + 22''] in front of me but I do not use them at a time. I do sometimes wish to have them work together but I guess I will still use one PC at a time. The second PC is for Gaming purposes

Angilina, click the link in my quote - If you have multiple computers in front of you, that is perfect for you.

Vice Versa you just need a KVM switch for Multiple CPU 1 monitor. but Single PC multi monitor? hmm i've already tried that but the result is the same display as the primary monitor.. I think you need a multiple Graphic card also for it to be done..

I found out about multi monitor setup in detail, few weeks back. I really like this idea and will soon have a second LCD in place with the current one. Actually I do have 2 monitors on my long desk: but they are attached to two different PCs. The PC on which I spend most of my time working online: I am planning to attach a second LCD with it. I will then have 3 monitors on my desk
