I’ve always used my netbook with a 1366 x 768 display for rendering.

I just got a new monitor. Same netbook, but WOW what a difference when I slide DS over to the 1920x1080 display!

With tabs open on both sides of DS 4, the picture space was about an inch and a half wide. Now the picture space is almost as big as my netbook’s whole display! Taller, but not quite as wide. And those tiny sliders? I can actually fiddle them.

(Now I just need a project so I can afford this new monitor.)

Wait until you go dual monitor.  It’s impossible to go back. ^_^;;;;;

(I had to shrink it for the forum to let me post it, but it’s really supposed to be 3840x1080 smile smile smile )

Congratulations!  Ain’t it nice to have room to stretch and wiggle your toes (er, fingers)?. grin

I’m sooo confused…  I’ve come to grasp a little of the nature of reality and the answer to life, the universe, and everything.  I even have an inkling as to who and what I am. Auuummmmm…  But please, please, who the hell are you?  And why are you trampling my roses?

Dual Monitor was necessary for me as a programmer. C++ and debug on one screen, output on the other. These days its Daz in one window, and either internet (Youtube cats ftw!) or, more productively, Photoshop CS5 in the other.

Only downside is I cheaped out on one of the monitors, and now the colours are all a bit screwed up despite my best attempts at calibration.

Always wanted dual monitors. At my former employer, support staff had dual monitors, but “was unnecessary for developers.” Then the new hired developers got dual monitors. Then the new hired developer was the boss. Then the boss was Darth Vader….

Now I have dual monitors :D

I solved the need for more information overload long ago by assembling a family of machines (many of them were orphans) around me. 8-o

Monitors clockwise from upper left:

1) 19” WinXP
2) 23” Win7 primary monitor
3) 23” Win7 secondary monitor and HDMI TV as 2nd input
4) 23” monitor (back visible) switches between another XP, a Vista, a Win8, and yet another XP
5) 32” TV also has input from the Win8

My recliner faces the TV and I’ve got wireless mouse and keyboard on the Win8 machine so I can sip hot chocolate, munch Triscuits, play solitare and pretty much vegetate when I get tired of fixing customer computers and playing with DAZ tools.
