Added a 24" Soyo monitor that I got for $40 shipped plus repair to replace faulty caps. With 24" 1920x1200 in between the 2 existing 21" 1920x1080 I have really wide view. The extra wide view came in handy when I wanted to run prime95 to test my overclocked dual Xeon rig (24 processes)

Trying to expand 24 little windows over a single monitor would have been quite hard.

If you can't tell, the wallpaper in the background came from www.digitalblasphemy.com

A 19" for watching TV while surfing on the 17". I just have to figure out how to keep Media Center from capturing the cursor when in full screen mode.

22" Samsung 226BW. It's about 5 years old and still rocking...but I am getting antsy. Trying to decide between a 27" or a pair of something else.

That is an insane deal. I'm going to have to learn how to fix monitors. How did you know it only needed new caps?

I have deal 22" acers, I just mounted them on a dual screen stand so now both the screens line up perfectly.

Even though multi monitor stands can be a bit pricey they really improve the feel of the work area, as when it was just 2 screens standing on a desk they would always end up out of line, having them mounted in a screen stops me from acidently missaligning them, I have had multi monitor set ups since 2007 and since adding the stand yesterday this is the first time a dual screen set up has felt complete. I plan to adjust the stand to make the screens a bit higher but over all I am very happy with it.

this is the stand for any one interested: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/scanf...inity-scalable


I'm on my tablet in the living room right now but I will post some pics when I go up stairs

edit: some pictures added, I didnt realize how untidy my desk was till I took the photos.

I'm thinking of adding bias lighting but I am not sure how effective it will be with a black wall behind the screens?

Filco Ninja 10keyless: Came with Browns modded to ergo clears' w/ black pbt engraved keycaps. I used ghetto reds in the arrow keys as I didn't see the benefit of tactile keys in that region.

Filco Bluetooth 10keypad: Came with Browns modded to ghettos reds` logo painted black w/ black pbt engraved keycaps. Imported from Japan with MIAHALLEN's help.

` (Black stems with blue/brown springs to make them the same as mx reds in all but color)
' (Clear stems with blue/brown springs to make a more tactile but equally light weight key compared to browns)
