2 different monitors for dual display

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok so i'v wanted a second monitor for a while now but cant seem to find a good seller of the monitor I have as they have been phased out.

I have the Acer G235H which has a branched off stand and the next monitor in the acer series is the Acer V233HLBD, which has a circle stand.

Im just wandering if looking at these 2 monitors all day will be strange as they look different. Dont really want to buy 2 whole new monitors so i guess its 1 of each or just 1.

I use two different monitors (which are different sizes, too) and it doesn't affect me at all.

I suppose it's a subjective thing.

Well you could give it ago. I used to dual screen with 1 LCD and 1 CRT and it didn't bother me.

EDIT: The LCD was 17" 1280x1024 and the CRT was 15" 1024x768

Ok thanks, sounds like a thing I just need to get used to.

Haha, an LCD and a CRT would have been interesting.
