So as you know most likely from a previous post, i am currently using 3 monitors. This is pretty new to me but before this i used 2 monitors for about 2 years. Both of them were 1680x1050 so i recently picked up a 1920x1080 monitor to replace one of them. So how did i end up with 3? Im too lazy to get rid of one, lol.
Basically going from 1 to 2 monitors was a huge improvement in productivity. You don't realize all the advantages of another monitor until you actually try it for yourself. My main use for it was having all my social networking on there, such as skype/aim/msn/vent and then i would be able to see incoming IMs all the time. Id also use it for watching videos or looking at websites while doing other things such as homework or playing a game. Once you use 2 monitors its hard to go back.
Now as for 3 monitors it really depends on what your doing. But even the simplest PC user can find a use for 3. It just comes down to is it worth the extra $$. A simple user can have his main work on the primary monitor, their social networking on the other and then music for example on the 3rd. Now this is possible and i guess its nice but it really doesn't justify spending the extra money for a monitor and then a way to hook it up to your computer (remember most graphics cards only support 2 monitors).
|Am i the only one who really dislikes full screening their browser? lol|
Ironically this is how my desktop looks most of the time, website on the primary, music on the 3rd and social crap on the 1st. I wouldn't go out of my way to achieve this setup. I can only think of a couple times that iv said to myself "thank god i have this 3rd monitor". But for some reason i really like it there and probably wont be going back to a 2 monitor setup.
Oh yea and you can do this if you have an eyefinity card :P
So in conclusion, you probably dont need 3 monitors but at the same time you probably wont regret getting a 3rd monitor. If your still in 1 monitor land i strongly recommend you try a dual monitor setup to increase your productivity and just give you a generally better experience.
Thats it.. oh and 100 followers, thanks guys.
