2 24" or 1 27"

I've always liked using multiple monitors (at work) and i've using a 1080p TN panel 27" at home.

I think it's time for an upgrade

2 24" Dell U2412 or 1 U2711

I've been waiting for the series9 27" but i don't think it's going to happen anytime soon

2x24, definitely. More monitors is more extra screen area than one bigger monitor...and you can never have too much.

Personally I find 24s a bit big, I run 4x22" 1080p at home.

Vote for one monitor here. I like seeing my monitor straight on, and the bezel separating the two is annoying.

Simple. One if you game or watch video most of the time. Two if you spend a lot of time browsing and you don't really sit back from the desk at all (like using a game controller).

I've got 2 x 22 at work and 1 x 23 at home, depends on your application.

Don't miss having 2nd monitor at home.
