Multiple Monitors
« on: December 31, 2020, 11:25:33 AM »
I am at my desk most of my day staring at computer screens.  I have 23 inch and 20 monitors, a few years old, and budget monitors, probably got them on some sale.  Has anyone in my shoes upgraded to, say, higher-end 25-27 inch monitors?  Is the difference meaningful enough?  Thanks.

Not sure what I am supposed to with this?  Neither address the size or use of two monitors.

Sorry I wasn't clear.
From the links above you may be to get a better picture of who has experience using a dual screen setup, and perhaps you'd like to post it there.

Use a small laptop screen + ( for my second screen) "upgraded" from a junky 20" to better 22".
Feels way diffrent. Easier and nicer to be front of.

Not sure if my productivity is up though.

I want to order this
I know you weren’t sure, but would you think that this would work with my computer.
Sceptre 40" Class FHD (1080P) LED TV (X405BV-FSR)
https://www.walmart.com/ip/683540269
Would I be able to connect this to a computer to use as a 2nd screen. ( for work to use for excel etc) or is this only for TV

I use 3 of these and love them. I use them ~9 hours a day and haven't hurt my eyes at all.
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

Do you use them for work or for gaming.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and assume that 9 hrs a day is more likely to be work than gaming :)
