Monitors come in a variety of shapes and sizes, though these days they tend to be in 16:9 ratio with a size of 17, 19 or 22-inches. If you want a little extra real estate to work on, you’ll just buy another matching monitor and set them side-by-side. However, if you want a large monitor and need only a little extra room for various toolbars, you might like this new unique monitor from Samsung.
You’ll notice that the Samsung SyncMaster 2263DX appears to have a small growth attached to it. That growth is actually a small 7-inch display mounted on the side. My first impression when looking at this is that it’s a crazy idea, and I’d never use it. Then I remembered how annoying it is when I’m working in Photoshop and want to see the image full-screen. Since I run two monitors anyway, it’s not a big deal to just move them onto the other screen. For someone that just works in a program like Photoshop all day, this would be a great setup.
Like all cool gadgets, this one is going to cost you a good little chunk of money. While you could get a
pair of monitors for $550, this one might be something to consider.
