Hi Ya Jeff
Anyway, what's you're opinion? Why are you still running one screen?
Well let's see. On my desk (desk being retired kitchen table) here I have three monitors. One on my everyday computer used mostly for Internet and whatever, some minor programming and assorted bullshit. I do not game so all this needs on this table is a single 23" monitor which serves what I do just fine. Beside that are a pair of older 19" Samsung SyncMaster monitors. Those are connected to my workstation computer. Now on the workstation I like dual monitors and if space allowed the 19" would be bigger. However, they serve fine for now. The big merit is if I am screwing around with development I can put a shitload of my tool boxes on one screen and my work on the other. That does make for nice. However, two is all I really need and hell I can only look at one at a time anyway.
Now at the wife's TV station they have one wall in a control room dedicated to monitors. They use them all during a production shoot. Different cameras feeding different video feeds to different monitors and the director calling the shots on what each camera should do as he views 16 or 20 monitors. Beyond shit like that I can't see much need for me to have a wall of monitors at home. The remaining systems I have running (two more) are in the electronics workroom extension of this computer room and each PC out there has a single 22" monitor.
Personally, for what I do, things are fine the way they are. Shit, I can only really look at one at a time anyway.
I guess if someone has a need at home for 4, 6, 8 or whatever monitors then cool.
Oh yeah, on a nostalgic note. I still have one of three 21" Sony Trinitron flat screened CRT monitors. They had dual input and were the monitor of the day at about $1,100 each new. The bastards also weigh just over 70 pounds each. I still have one of those that works fine but will take two men to drag the bastard out to the trash so it lays here on the floor inactive.
Just My Take.......
