Worrying about your PC monitor set up may seem pointless, but multi-monitor set ups are all the rage these days with the goal of significantly improving productivity.


Al Gore Rocks Three Monitors!


According to a from the University of Utah:

* People using the 24-inch screen completed the tasks 52% faster than people who used the 18-inch monitor
* People who used the two 20-inch monitors were 44% faster than those with the 18-inch ones.
* Productivity dropped off again when people used a 26-inch screen.

This blogger offers his assessment of the value of multiple monitors in easier to digest terms:


Let me be perfectly clear on this matter: more is more. More usable desktop space reduces the amount of time you spend on window management excise. Instead of incessantly dragging, sizing, minimizing and maximizing windows, you can do actual productive work. With a larger desktop, you can spend less time mindlessly arranging information, and more time interacting with and acting on that information. How much that matters to you will depend on your job and working style. Personally, I'd be ecstatic if I never had to size, position, or arrange another damn window for the rest of my life.



How many monitors do you use on your smart biz desktop? I'd bet one, and not a large one.

May be time to move on up...
