I need to go to a real calibrated monitor now and have decided to go the Wide Gamut approach.
Now I'm debating whether to get a single Dell U3014 or dual dell U2314.
It's been awhile since I used dual monitors and it was great for video editing.
I'm not sure I'll like it for Lightroom and photoshop, having to bounce my gaze back and forth.
Having no experience using a dual setup for PS and lightroom I'm looking for opinions.
The pixel density is also nice on the 30"
I used dual 21's for 7-8 years and have had my dual 26.5's (LCD2690uxi2) for nearly 2 years. I use them with Photoshop, Lightroom, Capture One, and every piece of software I normally use. I don't consider two unequal size monitors "dual monitors", instead I call them 2 monitors.
"Dual Monitors" should ideally be used on a dual monitor stand which angles them comfortably towards your eyes at such a distance that they virtually eliminate any head movement, they can and should be calibrated so the same whitepoint (profile) is consistent across both, and the cursor should easily move from one to the other without 'steps".
The entire ideal of dual monitors is to make your viewing experience less fatiguing, more enjoyable, and most of all more productive. IF they don't, then they're not dual monitors. They're just multiple monitors.
They should be hooded.
I've been giving thought to going to a single 30 myself. Mostly to reclaim some desk space. Having given it though I probably won't. Paying attention to my daily workflow across dual monitors made me realize I'd lose a lot of productivity going back to one.
