    Default Multiple monitors or just one ?

    So, I was wondering which is better. To have a setup of three 19'/21' monitors. Or just one big 34'/40' monitor ? For gaming + watching movies & etc.

    single big, as interruption in between monitors in multi-monitor setup is really disgusting.

    being a triple monitor user myself (5760*1080, 2x21.5"+1x24"), I can vouch for the immersive gaming experience of such a monitor setup. Trust me on this, after a few days, you will never notice the bezels. For me personally, after switching to triple monitors, i game a lot more now than i used to!

    If you decide on triple monitor setup, I suggest you avoid using 19" (~720p) monitors. You will really miss the vertical height available with 21.5" monitors (1080p).

    One problem that I am facing is with movies. When you maximize the video player for full screen view (across all 3 screens), the movie will expand to the monitors on the side due to aspect ratio of the movies being different than that of the monitors, example below:

    Click image for larger version.

Size:	102.0 KB 
ID:	32551 look at the red arrows

    Also, if you maximize the video player to one monitor only, you lose vertical space, example below:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	20140131_100952.jpg

Size:	99.4 KB 
ID:	32552 again, look at the red arrows

    Lastly, not every game will work properly across 3 screens. You might see stretching, field of view shaking, etc. But I have not experienced such with any major game. Only faced problems with toy story and deadpool.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks very much bro for the informative reply. how much did the monitor setup cost ?

    And lastly if I do decide to get a big monitor, what size would be best for viewing from a distance of one feet ?

    Did not buy all of them together, initially bought the 24" (Asus, LED, TN Panel) which i think cost 24000. The 2 x 21.5" (Viewsonic, LED, IPS) cost around 14000 each.

    No size would be good for viewing from 1 foot!

    may be others can recommend recent models!
