Re: 30" Monitor or Dual 24"

I'm set up similarly to Birk. But my landscape screen is 30". My portrait screen is an old 20" Dell that I set to 1600x1050 instead of the native 1680x1050, that way my mouse doesn't get caught along the bottom or top since it matches the 2560x1600 of the 30".

Your eyes do go back and forth, but that's the case with just a 30" as well, unless you have a huge desk or mount it on the wall.

My color calibration is for the 30"-er. I use the portrait for File Manager, streaming news, podcasts, email, etc.

If I had to advise b/w only your 2 choices, I'd go 30" in a second, but that's if price is no object. I doubt there will be a sale on that brand new Dell 3014.
