I used to be a dual display guy, using a laptop and a second monitor to increase my screen real estate while working. But a few years ago I swapped out that setup for a single 1920 x 1080 pixel display which is almost big enough to comfortably fit most apps or websites in side-by-side windows.

You know how you can take the almost out of the equation? By picking up a display that’s got a higher-than-1080p resolution. And I’m sorely tempted to do that today, since Newegg is selling a 25 inch, 2560 x 1080 pixel monitor for $30 off its normal price.lg 25UM65-P

  1. 2 – Dell U2412M (fuck Dell, never again) and some cheap 1080p 24 inch TN Samsung. Can’t really imagine myself going single screen anymore.

  2. At work, I’ve got 5 19″ 1280×1024 monitors in a row. If I was going to trade up to higher-res monitors, I think I’d still have to have at least three. The other option is adding a 6th just like the 5 I have and switching to a 3-over-3 layout. Still, I just sourced a couple 27″ 2560×1440 monitors for a colleague and I have to say that the difference is phenomenal.

  3. This is sort of off topic but sort of not too…) it’s about screen real estate improvement using a web browser)

    Two absolutely fantastic and free Firefox or Pale Moon (I use Pale Moon) web browser extensions that help you with web browsing and screen real estate are Tile Tabs 13.3 and Speed Dial 0.9.6.18. Used together, they allow incredible flexibility of information presentation and management on the web.

    Tile Tabs lets you have multiple browser tabs tiled either vertically or horizontally in the same window (useful for putting several different web pages in the same window rather than individual and separate tabs) and of course Speed Dial lets you have your favorite web pages similar to “TV channels” or visual bookmarks. The really cool thing about Speed Dial is that you can set automatic refresh times on your favorite visual bookmarks so you can almost get real time information using the web browser as they can be set to auto-refresh themselves updating the information they present.

    Using both plugins together allows a crazy amount of information to be presented in a very small space and close to real time. With large monitors this isn’t really an issue but these two freebies definitely help streamline workflow. I often use these two plugins with weather related information. In ONE window, I have two Tile Tabs (weather alerts in one and weather radar in the other). I can then have them auto update after X minutes. I can then use other tile tabs to monitor lightning strikes or weather stations that are close to home. It’s as close to a real weather application (computer program) that I can get – all for free of course. Watching sports online and tracking sport related information is awesome too using this setup.

    I wish I could show you a picture (worth 1000 words) of how this is all accomplished because it’s awesome!

    1. Here, I uploaded a quick demo image on an image hosting website (100% safe for work). It fits all these weather info tabs into my laptop screen resolution of 1366×768. https://postimg.org/image/5jvnia8dt/ I chose Toronto’s weather. All this info updates every 30 seconds. Web development is more efficient too using these plugins.

  4. I am very pleased with the Seiki SE39UY04. 3840 x 2160, 30Hz refresh (fine for development), $400 on Amazon, less elsewhere. It’s a 39-inch display that lives across the entire back of my work desk with a comfortable pixel density. It can be driven directly by current and previous generation Intel on-chip graphics. I was really hoping this was the beginning of large, low-cost, high resolution monitors, but the trend appears to have stalled a bit. I’ve had it for 1.5 years. It’s been listed as discontinued for a while, and others report trouble with reliability, but I’ve had good luck. Sort of the antithesis of Liliputing though? That’s OK, I type on a tenkeyless.

    1. It’s all about using the right tool for the job… and preferably not spending too much money on tools you don’t need.

  5. 4 with laptop’s. 1 – email, 2 – main desktop, 3 – screen sharing/swing, 4 – sticky notes/IM contacts.

  6. Single 2560×1440 for my docked laptop and an ancient Westinghouse TV for my PS4 next to it.

  7. three monitors. 1 for email, 1 for primary work and another for swing space.
