2 x 22" at work, 1 x 24 at home
Only 1x 24" with 1920x1080 @144Hz .
Does the job, but sometimes I feel like I need more screen space, so looking to grab maybe 1 (or 2?) more screens later this year.
My monitor size is... big enough. Honestly, I'm not certain what size it actually is, but it's not small. Then again, I also have several laptops too... do they count?
With websites being responsive ... maybe there will be a move to smaller monitors.
I still like 19 inch square monitors. Even 17 inch.
More monitors is better than bigger monitors for multitasking.
Why not both? You can grab a trio of cheap korean 27" IPS monitors for under 900$.
We have three LG monitors with HDMI inputs
Monitor 1: 21 inches - resolution 1920 x 1080
Monitor 2: 24 inches - resolution 1920 x 1080
Monitor 3: 29 inches - resolution 2560 x 1440
The HDMI inputs automatically resize videos to use full screen.
Monitors 1 and 2 are used for our normal everyday computing and for viewing old low quality videos
Monitor 3 is huge and is uncomfortable to use for ordinary computing as it gives us eye strain and a stiff neck. Also, old videos are much too blurred to view on this monitor. However, modern HD videos are displayed in wonderful crisp full screen mode and we use this monitor mainly for these.
Can't they play "in their native resolution" (in a smaller, non-maximized window) ?
15.6 on laptop, 14 inch old desktop, 15.6 inch desktop, 22 inch new desktop.
15 inch wide and 1360 x 768 resolution
Wonder what the average monitor size is out there ?
Anyone got any good stats ?
Things are getting bigger.
Today's web design challenges are very difficult !
I use 19inch square monitor (not widescreen). It's a good quality NEC one so never replaced it since for a bigger one. I don't like widescreen monitors, had one before give it me dad.
I have been on my 13" 1440x900p Macbook Air for over 4 years now. No problems. Best computer I've ever had.
Two 28" displays @ 3840x2160.
What kind of card do you use to drive those?
When I bought the displays I had a Asus GTX 970 installed which rather surprisingly proved to be good enough. However I've recently bought an unbranded GTX 1070 which actually cost slightly less than the 970 and that really does fly.
13 inch laptop - don't own a desktop anymore... but at work I have 3 huge monitors... probably 24 inches or more. But that's for video editing.... The 13 inch laptop (Chromebook with Linux sideloaded) is just fine for my personal computer.
24" Dell IPS UltraSharp with a native resolution of 1920 x 1200 - best monitor I've had in a long while and the resolution gives me that little bit of extra vertical space to work in as opposed to 1080.
I think this may be my next desktop monitor, except for the fact that it's an eye watering £1k
38" Curved 3840x1600
I've been looking at these myself.. Just not sure I like the format
