View Full Version : How many monitors do you have?

July 11th, 2006, 01:53 AM
I got a second monitor for my main workstation a few months ago, and I'm never going back to having just one.

How many monitors do you have on your primary machine?

I have one 21" crt-monitor.

July 11th, 2006, 02:02 AM
I have 2 moniters. One for each computer.:lol:

July 11th, 2006, 02:06 AM
2 20.1 LCD's (a Sceptre and a Samsung) running @ 1600x1200 dual monitored for 3200x1200 ...

one at 1280x1024

One - The laptop at home, but at work I have two - my laptop screen and a nice big monitor. I run windows at work so it's almost the equivilent of multiple desktops. (Yes, I know windows has multiple desktop capabilities in Widows XP, but I'm not comfortable with the implementation - It feels like a hack!)

Including broken monitors? :p

I have three over here. Two of them are hooked up to KVM switches for two computers each and the oldest of them is for my lil Aptiva over here near my bed with breexy on it.

laptop, plus my LCD TV can double as a second monitor if i need it

My primary is a 17" LCD, I have a 19" CRT sitting in my storage closet.

I can never go back to CRT.

not sure where my post in this thread went...but i have a laptop at home and use 3 monitors at work, each of which is connected to its own KVM switch which has a few boxes on each one

Own 5, use 2. With ubuntu you really only need 1.

I have two 19" CRT's, and that's where most of my desktop space goes :rolleyes:

One display just isn't enough for some apps that I need. Now I need to get myself a laptop, and I don't know how I'll survive with only one display..

July 11th, 2006, 08:07 AM
One, it's a laptop :P , at 1680x1050

July 11th, 2006, 08:09 AM
1 42in hitachi plasma
1 42in samsung plasma
1 19in wide screen acer lcd
1 15in philips lcd
1 15in lcd laptop
17in wide screen laptop

Only one, but it's a 42" 1080p display. In reality I hardly use it because I'm always on my notebooks.

does tv-out counts?

July 11th, 2006, 01:31 PM
I have three at work: 1 19" LCD attached to my XP laptop to extend the desktop, and a second laptop (more like a doorstop :p ) on which I just installed Xubuntu for a playground. :KS

5 monitors in total 4 on my desk at the moment each hooked up to a different computer as im still playing with multi monitors on ubuntu

July 12th, 2006, 08:02 PM
2 on my workstation with a kvm switch so I can switch to the server easily and not have more keyboards and mice around. Dual monitors are the way to go!! I would really miss it if I had to go back to a single.

I have one 21" crt-monitor.

Same :)


July 12th, 2006, 09:18 PM
One 24" widescreen...more than enough space for my needs

July 12th, 2006, 09:52 PM
22" HP p1230 CRT

July 12th, 2006, 09:59 PM
1 22" CRT tension mask, at 1400x1050 (very pleasent to look at)

Why is it so nice to have more, When you have virtual desktops in Ubuntu:confused:

July 12th, 2006, 11:59 PM
One 19 inch CRT and one 17 inch CRT.

I love it.

July 13th, 2006, 12:06 AM
My desktop has a 15" LCD ( 1024x768 ). It's too small for my needs, but at least it has DVI :). My laptop has a 14-something inch 1400x1050 LCD.

I have one monitor for my primary machine and one monitor for my secondary machine. Both are old 17" CRT monitors.

When my primary monitor(it's now the monitor for my secondary machine) went "bad" I borrowed a monitor from a friend who didn't have any use for it anymore.

About a hundred.
I'm not kidding.

Of course, I live at the back of an electronics repair shop and even in South Africa people are giving 15" monitors away.

They are EVERYWHERE - under the kitchen table, four make up the base of the lounge table, in the hallway. The rest are being rained on right now in the backyard.

Most can be easily repaired, which is the sad thing.

I, on the other hand, have no use for 15" either and are quite happy with one 17". :-)

I have 2 moniters. One for each computer.:lol:

Same here.

My primary is a 17" LCD, I have a 19" CRT sitting in my storage closet.

I can never go back to CRT.

I actually like the picture quality from my old CRT flatscreen better then the LCD flatscreen.

Now the LCD flatscreen does look sexier, and the CRT flatscreen looks like a VW bug, both my wife and I enjoy the picture quality better on the big old monitor.

I have yet to make them both work under ubuntu as I've installed opensuse... Ubuntu has gotten me lazy so I'm going back to it so that all my hardware is recognized and little to no work is on my side. I wish windows did that!

I have one Dell 1907FP Ultrasharp threw DVI at 1280x1024 and one Sony trinitron Multiscan 200ES at 1024x768 threw VGA. - This is in windows, and if I can get it running on Ubuntu, then it'll be same there.

one 17" Crt
