Multiple Monitors, Ultrawides, or Both? — Micro Center

Multiple Monitors, Ultrawides, or Both?

Last week we asked what your most important peripheral was, and it got people talking about monitors. Specifically, about ultrawides versus dual-monitor set up. 

So, what's the way to go? With that sweet, sweet ultrawide display with plenty of room for activities, or the pure utility and ease-of-gaming on the dual-monitor set-up?

Comments

  • Personally, I've had it both ways, going from a 1080p with and Ultrawide to a 4k supported by my 1080p. And while I like how cleanly my wallpaper sits in the 16x9 resolution, I do miss that loooooooong second display

    Also ignore my gross mess, I'm sorry, I would have cleaned if I knew this would end up on the internet
  • Dual monitors always!

  • Depends for me.
    I favor the ultrawide for work/multimedia tasks and............ sim racing.

    But I'll take multiple monitors any day for general gaming/live streaming. :)

    I use a 32:9 49" Samsung ultrawide for everything at home and I don't think I could change from it or another monitor like it now.
  • I just needed a monitor with backlight to match the rest of my setup. The Samsung Odyssey is truly the nicest monitor I've ever seen or gamed on. Not an ultrawide, or dual monitor, but if I want I can switch my computers output over to my 65" TV to play some controller games if I want to relax on the couch.

    Holy cow is that an absolutely gorgeous set-up! The lightly backlit Hylian shield/Master Sword combo looks stellar!
