What is your preferred size and number of monitors? [closed]

Do you like to have a single giant monitor, a couple mid-sized monitors or some other configuration? Specifically, I’m interested in your home general purpose computer system. (No media centers or netbooks)

3x 21 inches. It gives you a clear "primary" monitor to work on with a couple of secondary monitors to integrate with. Too much more than 21" and it is hard to fit it on a desk.

I have one 22'' monitor with Full HD - 1920x1080. Most 22'' do not offer such resolution, but some manufactures create such. At work I have two 1280x1024 monitors, but I found one big monitor more useful.

"I have this fantasy of having a 30"" (2650x1600) flanked by a pair of 20"" 4:3 (1600x1200) rotated into portrait mode.

At work I have a 20"" 16:9 1680x1050 + 17"" 4:3 1280x1024, and it's not nearly enough pixels."

Still looking. Current plan is six 22"" widescreens side by side in portrait mode."

"It's a matter of personal taste, however one thing I have found extremely useful over the years is to set aside a single monitor (preferably widescreen) rotated into portrait mode exclusively to read ebooks and pdf documents from.

It comes in especially handy if you are a developer and are reading a computer ebook on one monitor and trying out the examples in your IDE on the other."
