I've recently add a pair of ergotron LCD desk monitor brackets to my SO2R setup :


.......the best non-radio accessory I've added to my station in a long while!

Just be aware, if using a domestic PC monitor check there's a VESA plate fixing on the rear , many of the newer 'home PC monitors' don't have them (in the UK at least).

The displays will be side-by-side and supporting all of the contesting/logging/propagation windows driven by one central contesting computer.  I could be talked into having two computers--one for each display--but I would appreciate if that discussion were held another day.

Has experience shown that one particular screen size and/or aspect radio to be better than another in this application?  I am partial to Samsung, but I can be talked out of that too if appropriate.
