Recommendations for 2 or 3 monitor setup Tags: Flat Panel Monitors Monitors Peripherals Last response: February 2, 2012 5:05 PM in Computer Peripherals Share anomolies February 1, 2012 11:40:56 PM Hello, I would like some help regarding monitor stands.. I've attached a pic of my setup below I originally bought a 24" with the plan to upgrade to a larger monitor in the future, but prices never came down (haha). I can get a second identical monitor on craigslist for $100. The only problem is, my desk isn't big enough for a second monitor. Would it be better/cheaper to: 1) wall mount the monitors (can high quality wall mounts be had for cheap?). One reason I'm thinking wall mount is so I can have more desk space. I am also wanting to tilt the monitors vertically (portrait mode), but all of the monitors with tilt capability cost $300 or 2) triple monitor stand (any recommendations for an affordable stand and would allow me to position monitors in portrait?) 3) get a longer desk? I think I'm gonna need a longer desk regardless of what I choose to go with.. haha If it's wall mount I'm looking for some recommendations as to brands. Another question I have is if the difference between 2ms / 5ms monitors is noticeable? I currently have a 5ms.

You could wall mount them. Otherwise I don't see a difference between having two monitors on your desk and having a double monitor. I wouldn't recommend a wall mount, that would really limit your options in the future. Plus they are a pain to setup. | Report abuse anomolies February 2, 2012 3:52:24 PM the speakers need to be at least a foot away from the wall, and positioned at the same level as my ears, + not obstructed. I could get stands but I think those are kind of expensive | Report abuse MagicPants Monitor Authority February 2, 2012 4:41:39 PM Sorry to ask, but then in the 3 monitor setup would the speakers go in front of the monitors? | Report abuse anomolies February 2, 2012 5:05:18 PM Well, I think I will need a bigger desk no matter what. But I was thinking, at least with a wall Wall mount I can position one screen above the other. I am using for mostly webbrowsing / stock trading. What did you mean by wall mounts being limited? | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Computer Peripherals>Recommendations for 2 or 3 monitor setup> Related ressources: ForumTriple Monitor Setup - Recommendations Forum3 Monitor Setup GTX 680 ForumRecommendations finalizing 1st build... cooling/storage setup ?
