Last year’s article on using two-screens on your computer prompted a lot of response – so we thought we’d do a little follow-up for you.
Many of you agreed and said that it has transformed the way in which you use your computer and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it. Plus, we’ve had a whole bunch of people requesting a second monitor for their PCs – amazing what a difference an article can make to your sales!
Multi-Multi Monitors. One question that we were asked a few times was ‘how can I have more than two monitors?’ – well, there are graphics cards than can be installed into PC s that enable multiple monitors to be connected. We run one in the office that has four screens attached to it – and it’s great for being able to keep an eye on 4 different ‘dashboards’ and ‘warning/performance screens’ at the same time.
A USB Monitor from Samsung. We highlighted that you can purchase a USB Graphics Adapter that means you can easily add extra monitors to PCs – but now, there’s a USB Monitor available! The Samsung LD220 is a 22” Widescreen monitor that plugs into your Laptop or Desktop using a simple USB connection. It costs £155 ex VAT and Delivery. Plus, you can plug up to 6 of these monitors into the same PC if you wanted!
Managing Multiple Monitors. Shaun Woodward of Principle International, recommended the use of http://mediachance.com/free/multimon.htm – a multi-Monitor task bar. Why not give it a try?
Thanks for all of your input – it’s really interesting to hear how IT is making a difference to your everyday business lives. Please keep the comments coming.
