Anyone have a separate monitor to connect to their laptop as a second screen for WFH? What do you use? Any recommendations? Fwiw I have a Lenovo Yoga 920 as my work computer when not in the office.

In addition to my 4K monitor I got a few yrs ago, I picked up a Lepow 15.6” portable monitor this year and I’m loving it. It has a folding stand sort of like an iPad and is pretty thin. I use it when I want to work on my patio or in another room to get a change of scenery & would definitely take it with me for a portable setup when traveling post-covid

I’ve got a portable one as well that I’ve been using when away from the house. It’s amazing! Plug and go! This is the one I have AOC I1659FWUX 15.6" USB-powered portable monitor, Full HD 1920x1080 IPS, Built-in Stand, VESA https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06X9C6XFK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_G9C3AWQ8A6PJHGGYQ2GH?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

I also have a docking station. Can’t work on a laptop screen full time!

I have two, connected through a port replicator. The monitors are nothing special, 28” Acers that can pivot to vertical from landscape. Love the setup. And everything cost me well under $500 shopping deals.

Same here. I have a Lenovo laptop and a Lenovo docking station that I took home with me when we started WFH. The docking station is really nice. I can connect two screens and have leftover ports for a wireless mouse and key board. I will be sad to return it when we go back to the office!

I have two. My ACER is my favorite but they don’t make it in this size and resolution anymore. Still, a good brand for a good work monitor. External monitors are worth the expense.

I have a docking station and a monitor (BenQ) that can switch between my work laptop and my home computer.

I have a docking station, 2 24” and 1 34” monitors in a reverse pyramid set up. It was worth the investment.

Could be if you don’t need that much screen at once but it works well for me. For example, I have my timekeeping software on one, email on another, and then a pdf and word doc on the 34, split screen. If I’m writing a brief, it’s awesome to have my outline, research, dep transcripts, and actual draft without having to cycle through.

Same firm-issued laptop with the docking station, with 2 x 32" LG LCDs connected to the docking station.

It’s a must. I’m using a 32” 4K monitor with external webcam, boom mic, and powered desktop speakers (through obligatory DAC for tunes), all connected to docking station. Pandemic aside, any WFH setup needs to be comfortable...

Seconding two monitors hooked up through a dock (I bought exactly the same make and model that was in my office at work). I’m in a transactional practice and this is absolutely critical.

32” LG monitor from Costco. Love it!!!

I have the Phillips 328E. Its resolution isn’t the best, but that actually helps me not have headaches from too much screen time (and saved $). I also have the same laptop 😊
