How many monitors is too many? I have 3 and want another

I have 3 including my laptop and want another one as well. I like the efficiency of not having to jump through windows to find what I’m looking for. I can put certain programs on certain screens and get more done in a less distracting manner.


My monitors and desk setup is quite literally one big reason I won't go back into the office. (Many other reasons too).
I hate plug-unplug to go sit in a stuffy meeting room holding my coffee, my notebook, my phone. Women's pants don't even have pockets!

OP in 2023 if the pandemic doesn’t end.

I think I’d spend more time fidgeting with those monitors trying to get them straight, than actually working…

Your computer graphics card will tell you when it's too many. Also # of ports may be limiting


An eGPU will fix that issue if you don’t mind dropping a grand!

I have been just using the laptop screen the last 3 years, can’t imagine a 2nd let alone 4!!


D1 you gotta be trolling! Level up those computer skills. Also prior military here

Are you the architect from the matrix ?


I am only here for the comments and y’all didn’t disappoint.


1 27” high resolution one and my laptop screen as backup for capturing notes primarily. Nobody in consulting needs more than 2 if you’re just working in PPT, Excel, Chrome and Outlook all day


One for outlook, one for ppt/excel, one for slack and other for netflix




I had 6 when I was a high frequency trader earlier in my career


What’s on the 4th monitor? Three works great for me.


I have 4 and love it. Two are sidetraks — my Computer has ears!


One for the incognito browser

I have my laptop screen for normal messages with Team. Two other screens for excel/pdf/etc. sometimes I do wish I have a 4th one whe n I need to look at multiple files…


6 Screens… 3 laptops + 3 external monitors works well


Sounds like you should use a TV for a monitor

3 for personal, 1 monitor + laptop for worm

This question is triggering my ocd for clutter

Depends on how many eyes you have

Hi fishes,

What are chances of getting rejected in l2 round in Capgemini.


Hello, not sure if I should move this to the Referral Bowl or here is good.
I have multiple years of working in Sysadmin/Tier 2-3 roles. Still experience trouble getting another SysAdmin role since I lost mine. I live in a state with plenty of work if sec-cleared. I cant get one.

Anyone work somewhere that could use an exceptional sysadmin, and that understands people aren't their past mistakes. Stuck back on helpdesk & want back to sysadmin

Hello Fishes! How’s Nagarro’s yearly hike? I saw in an earlier thread that it’s amount based (like 1.5, 2, 2.5 lac). But just confused how will it be applicable to a junior resource with 5 lpa and a senior resource with 30 lpa. Is that the amount mentioned above is same for all employees? If so, it’s unfair to the senior resource with 30 lpa to get the same hike as that of a junior resource, not based on previous ctc. Or Is it based on some percentage of prev ctc? Please help me understand! TIA


As a practice manager, I realized that I’m just a glorified assistant for everyone including providers. Worthless work, do this, do that. Just none stop.

What’s in, who’s in Ashburn Virginia? My website is constantly hit by numerous different IP address there. Tech? Advertising agencies? It’s weird.


Opposing counsel sent over about 700 pages of board minutes but the pages are all over the place. One page will be from minutes in 2014. The next in 2017. Then the next back to 2014. Was it on purpose? Can I ask counsel to resend in sequential order?
