Dual Monitors

Recommended Posts

As this isn't really a hardware support question, I'll ask here.

 

What do you guys have set up, if you have dual computer screens? I just now got 2 new LED Monitors.

These can swivel 90*. I was thinking of keeping one at wide length, when the right one is perpendicular. Left is for movie watching, playing games. Right is for web surfing, reading anything, writing in Word, etc.

 

Is this something you do, or am I this weird kid? :laugh:

 

Just wanted to know. As I'm not used to 90* swivel monitors.

I have three of those monitors ... all in landscape.  The ones on the outside are slightly angled inwards ... the center monitor is the primary (gaming, typing, etc).  The one on the right I mostly use for watching videos ... the left is kinda my dumping monitor (encoding, ripping, anything that takes awhile, etc).  I personally do not care for portrait orientation (I did try it originally with the left monitor...but it wasn't for me).

 

When I had two monitors they would be face on ... though I had one offset to my right and slightly angled towards me ... which I primarily used for videos (or was my "dumping" monitor).

At work, I have 3 x 24 monitors and I placed all of them in portrait mode.

 

At home, I have 1 x 34 that I keep in landscape.

 

It is pretty easy to switch between mode, I suggest you experiment with a few combination and settle on one you like. Give a few days/weeks and you will pretty much know what you want.

 

Have fun!
