I just want to do a quick survey here
Are you using dual or single monitor at work as well as home
EDIT: and what resolution you set on your monitor(s) ?
Three, but I wouldn't go below dual for anything these days unless I'm traveling and can't take my monitors with me
Dual, but SW runs on only one of them ... Honestly, I was never a fan of the dual monitors. With all the PDF files we get for our designs now-a-days it's utterly convenient to have the second screen in the "portrait" layout. Sure as heck beats going back and forth from one tab to the other all day.
Dual monitor, but only one for Solidworks
Dual all the way.
Steve Ostrovsky 3rd ? - is that your Pokeman monitor
John Stoltzfus Haha, too old for Pokeman thankfully. Need somewhere to keep the forum updates running while I play with my Legos
I use a 27" for the main monitor, and recently added an old 17" on the side. It's very handy for the assorted reference stuff, PDFs, spreadsheets, e-mail, etc. If I could figure out the mounting, I think having the secondary monitor above the main one might work well too. I can't imagine a scenario where I would try and use SW on more than one monitor. But, if you're doing something like plant layouts, where you need to show really big assemblies, I could see where investing in a fancy setup with matched monitors might be worthwhile.
I was the first in our company to use two monitors (10 years ago), only because I brought in a spare from home. Once everyone saw my setup they purchased a second monitor for everyone in the company, of course, me being last since I already had my own. Now it is hard to work at home on my laptop, it seems like it takes forever to get anything done.
Dual Monitors. Right now we have ASUS ProArt 1920 x 1200. Maybe not ideal for CAD, but I have not noticed any ill artifacts in our usage.
SW is mostly on my LH screen with the task manager taking a portion of the RH. The remainder of the RH carries all the other stuff - forum, open PDFs & images, mail, excel...
Dual on desktop 1920x1080 for both
Laptop - only one, 1920x1080
Wish I had UHD though.
Dual 30" Dell Ultra U3011, 2560 x 1600 resolution. Big monitors, IPS display with a 16:10 aspect ratio.
Lady, you just made me jealous
Dual monitors for myself and our entire Engineering staff.
Dual monitors at work...I would prefer to have 3 at work.
I don't work from home, so at home it is just the laptop screen.
Anna, you're set-up sounds great.
I use a 26" Iiyama Prolite, in conjunction with my laptop screen (Dell M6800) at my home office.
I think I could go a little bigger, but I tried another one of our screens (a 32" Samsung) on my desk, and think that's too big really... even when leaning back a little
Perhaps 30" is the way!.....Don't wanna burn my eyes out though.
28" asus in 4k resolution for SW, and 24" samsung for rest (pdf, mail, task manager, etc).
28in 4k scaled at 150% and a 24in 1920x1200 scaled at 100%. Both are Dell ips monitors.
My dual monitor setup is actually 2 computers with the identical monitors side-by-side. I work on the left computer as my main machine and, as needed, I will launch a session of SolidWorks on each computer. Email, web browsing, PDF viewing is done on the right computer exclusively. 1920 x 1080 on both scaled at 100%
I use Microsoft's Garage Mouse Without Borders.

I personally prefer this setup to dual monitors
Dual, of course. 1920 x 1080 for both.
Dual Samsung 23" at work, single 22" at home and I don't miss the dual setup when working from home.
I have a 17" laptop in front of me with a 24" Samsung SyncMaster on top of my laptop screen for SolidWorks. (1920 x 1080 both).
On my right side I have a Microsoft surface pro 3 for notes, emails, forums, etc. I have a support arm for the surface which let me use either portrait or landscape mode as preferred.
just like you, I have dual Dell 24" monitor, Dell M6400 (17") laptop and ipad air2 on my desk - and spacepilot pro too
