Default Dual-Display Monitor: Samsung SyncMaster 2263DX Review

The idea to use two monitors on a single computer system is not that new. However, this article will represent its very unique implementation: a set including a regular 22-inch monitor and an additional 7-inch one. Read about a new Samsung solution in our detailed review! http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/oth...-sm2263dx.html

I beg to differ, I think its extremely useful to have a 7" on the side. I have been looking for an additional small monitor (7"-9") to run my itunes/convos/etc...

I like!

I was thinking about something like this, but using a smaller older lcd aquired from E-bay, there are some older cheap lcd's out there... but then, I could just get a twin to the one I have... if you've got the space use it.

yeah, if space is a problem, get two 15 inch dispalys vs a 22, having the 7 inch is pretty useless... if it was larger, meby not so useless but really... wtf can you put in a 7 inch display other than your chat app??
