What kind of 4K monitor? I’m in the market and looking for recommendations. For me: the big thing is a lumbar support pillow for my chair. Has done wonders

For 4k screen share you will have to go full screen/maximize windows. Otherwise it will look too small on most 1080p monitors.

Some company in North Jersey close to EWR. Cant remember name. Nowdays search https://www.furniturefinders.com/find/used-aeron-chairs.html The chromes are kind of rare to find but I wouldn't change for anything. It is almost like a classic car.

I bought a 49 inch screen (LG) during quarantine. It‘s like 2 27 inch screens with WQHD. And it’s amazing. I thought a lot about getting this versus a 4K screen at like 32 inch. But for work, you don’t really need 4K. I don’t know how I shall work with a smaller screen when travel picks up again...

In Zoom, Teams, etc. you can just share one window.

Also Herman Aeron Chrome from 2006-2007. Still like new. Worth every single dollar. I would have changed 2-3 chairs already.

Where did you purchase?

I ask for help on messaging because I can be a little too blunt which doesn’t go over well for some 😬
