We often wish for a bigger work screen on our personal computer while handling multiple windows at the same time. If you are designing something on your computer and surfing the Internet simultaneously, you will inevitably have to toggle between multiple windows in order to view them on the small screen.
However all this inconvenience can be avoided by using a space saving monitor arm for another screen. Working with two screens will save you the trouble of expanding and minimizing multiple windows while working. Read on as we introduce three displays that work well with space saving monitor arms and help you work more efficiently.
Choose a screen that fits your purpose
If you are thinking that getting another panel might make no difference in the way you perform your regular functions, you are wrong. It pays to be picky as the additional screen should tremendously reduce the fatigue of the eyes and enhance your interaction with the CPU System.
Be kind to your eyes! What makes these devices special is not just the type of liquid crystals used but also the fact that these models are ingrained with the features to reduce blue light effect. The liquid crystals used are non-glossy and are gentle on the eyes.
If you are planning to use the screen of your PC for gaming, you will have to choose a display suitable for the game. You will also have to regulate the pixel response rate accordingly. The response rate is a numerical value of how fast the video display is reflected on the screen. If the response time is slow, your gaming experience will be largely affected.
If you decide on thin Bezel Monitors, you will be able to combine two screens almost seamlessly as one large display. By doing so, the immersive viewing experience on the screen will be significantly improved. Taking these features into consideration, let’s learn more about multiple displays.
For multi-monitors, display that is gentle to the eyes and arm is recommended
Let’s find out how to choose a display that is suitable for multi monitor especially when you have to choose from a variety of products. The two features that you need to look out for are “non-glossy liquid crystal” and “VESA mount compatible”.
Working with multiple screens increases efficiency, but it also increases strain on the eyes. Therefore, a model with non-glossy liquid crystal display is recommended which places less strain on the eyes than glossy liquid crystal displays.
Furthermore, working with two display screens means that you will require more space on your desk. If the model comes with a VESA mount attachment, you can install two displays without having to worry about space. Although the use of the arm is not necessary, it would be prudent to select one with VESA mount, taking into account future placement changes.
We have a list of three recommended screen panels that take into account the two features mentioned above.
