I just (in the last few days) migrated to a dual monitor set up. I can't really comment on how it has changed my workflow because I'm still playing around with that, but I can tell you that I got 2 HP 2311xi IPS 23" monitors, and they calibrated nicely with my i1 Display Pro. I caught them on sale at Best Buy (with 3% Fat Wallet rebate), and you simply can't beat the value in my opinion.

IPS panels are generally regarded as preferable to TN panels for photography work.


I used to utilize a dual monitor set up, but they were very old monitors that I felt wouldn't work for a photo editing environment. Also I never got a chance to play with the afore mentioned using my old set up. I did see a significant increase in productivity though.

Let me know how the dual monitor set up works out for you.
