Basically it's a 28" Vs 2 x 21.5

Main things I would be doing would be graphic design. Thought 2 might be better then I can have what programs I need running on separate screens rather than them all running behind each other.

So what's peoples opinion

This is user dependent man. I enjoy the work area on two monitors.... on one, regardless of size, you only have so much resolution to work with.

Would two monitors help YOU? If yes get them.

I'm thinking 2 would be best....

Just wondering if I'd benefit from the larger screen but as you say only so much Res to work with.


I shall have a ponder before I click buy

Inches dont matter.... it's the same resolution. 1920x1080 at 21" is the same as 28". Besides 1080p looks bad, to me, on 28" monitor arms length away...

If they are the same resolution a single screen @ 1080p or 2 screens @ 1080p then go with the 2 screens for sure. Gives more usable work space. IMO

For work I prefer 2 screens. A dedicated one for C.A.D. and another for Forums Email, standard books, and ancillary applications.
