Daniel (the author of Daily Blogging Tips) inspired me to write about my current desktop setup and in particular the multihead setup I’ve got. Currently I got three TFT displays (see the related image) and I just love it. I do a lot of image processing, programming, video editing and audio multitrack mastering and the three displays help a lot to increase my productivity.
But there’s more about it: I’ve found out that normally I don’t bother to power up the left display and I just use two out of three displays. Buying a second display increases productivity a lot but buying 3rd display doesn’t increase it that much. One of my friend has also three displays and he has found out the same: normally he uses only two of them.
What do you think? Does three displays increase productivity just as much as buying the second display? Is two displays enough for most of the daily tasks?

Using two monitors definently works for me, I think three displays would be way to much to take in at one time. With programming and webdesign, two displays is a must :)
Two is definitely enough. I used to have my laptop display + two separate TFTs on my desk at work, and I rarely used the laptop display for anything.
