Extra wide curved monitor is killer

like

I have a 32” curved monitor from Samsung and love it way more than my 2 monitor set up at the office

like

Same. Best decision ever

It’s a preference. It’s easy to snap docs to the left and right side of one monitor so I think functionally they act the same but I don’t like seeing bezels and sometimes watch sports on my 34” curved monitor

like

One 35-40 inch curved is all you need. Way better than two smaller screens with a bezel between them.

I have been using a Dell S3423DWG and have found it value for money - don’t think practically speaking the talk about VA monitors having black smearing matters when you just use them for office work

Be wild. Double wide monitors.

funny

Go for one ultra wide. Two monitors means you have a lot of wasted space between monitors and spend a lot of time turning your head. You can also use Microsoft Fancyzones to switch your screen between having two or three segments at the press of a button

I’ve had back pain, either in lower back or sciatic nerve for the past 8 months. I got released from physical therapy around the holidays because I was making improvements and wasn’t in pain. However, since returning to work and working busy season hours it’s difficult to stay seated for most of the day. I bought a standing desk, but was wondering if anyone has any suggestions? I need to make some serious changes as I’m 27 and should not have this much back pain so young 😢
