If you have ever worked with a dual-monitor setup you know that it can really improve your output and workflow even though it takes some time getting used to the new possibilities that it provides you with.
A dual-monitor system is fairly common in the workplace, but if you want to go overboard, you may be interested in the following setup.
Everton from Connected Internet posted an article today about a monitor lineup that takes the whole concept to a new level. The linup consists of one 30'' center flat screen monitor and five 20.1'' perimeter flat screens that surround the center lcd monitor. This computer monitor setup needs special multi-monitor software of course that gives you full control over what you see on each of the five peripheral monitor systems and the main monitor.Take a look at the image first to get a better impression.
Looks incredible does not it? Well the look of this flat screen monitor setup is not the only incredible thing, the price is incredible as well: $7,499. The primary monitor has a maximum resolution of 2560x1600 and the five 20.1'' flat screens one of 1600x1200. The number of total active pixels from this monitor setup is almost 8 million! It seems that the only input is a dual link dvi-d connection in the central flat screen monitor.
If you would have the money for flat screen monitors like this would you purchase it or would you invest the money elsewhere?
Update: Time has passed and the price of the MasterPlex 30D has dropped significantly. While still expensive at $4,899, it is almost $3000 cheaper than before.
The company creates additional multi-monitor setups including the Spectrum which links five monitor systems horizontally next to each other for incredible widescreen resolutions. And if you still have spare change after purchasing one of the setups, you can consider buying a multi-monitor computer from the same developer which is optimized for multi-montor setups the company provides.
