Really depends on your preference. I’ve got about the same amount of depth and I have a 27”. I like side by side windows.. Then I have a laptop arm hovering laptop off to the side as a 2nd display.

doesn’t get too crazy for your eyes? my concern was being so close to the monitor

Dual 27” monitors have been a god send. Life’s so much easier and more productive

I prefer dual monitors over one large monitor

Look into dual monitor arms. They clip to the back of your table/desk and lift the monitor up so you have good workspace.

Contrary to popular belief, bigger is not always better.

Dual would be great, can go up to 27”, but 24” dual monitor set up is perfect

I have a widescreen LG that I snagged at Sam’s last year... I love it!

49” ultra wide baby

2x 24s on mounts

I have a 32" 4k monitor (I do design, 4k is necessary) but it can be hard to fit that and my laptop on a normal desk-- 2 smaller monitors would probably be more expensive but better.
