re: Ultrawide VS multiple monitor set-up: Your thoughts? VIEW POST


I almost done setting up 3. My requirements include switching the monitors (at least two), at least 2 PC's .. it's actually 3 now (2 via USB C, one gaming PC), switchable web cam/mic that is separate from keyboard switch that is separate from the 2 (separate) monitor switches for the three monitors (no joke)

I've been developing this over the years, it's based on my experiences, it's not cheap ( e.g. one of the switches needs to support at least 120mhz refresh @1080p ....delivered today) and requires 4 switches and a lot of creative cable management to make it look professional. you can't even see the switches unless you get under the desk :-)

anyway, I wouldn't go anywhere near one of those silly looking super big curved things for a lot of reasons


Sounds pretty sick :) I guess the more experience and expertise you get, the more requirements on proper tech comes along with it! You learn and upgrade as you go! :)


TIL you can't get a switch that goes with a 144mhz monitor without spending $500 (and then maybe not). The one I ordered was for a TV and it didn't work (and cost $25). Video cards always send a full frame signal (it seems) and Windows does the scaling to 1080p or whatever (like for a game) and no switch can cope with over 60mhz at over 1080p native resolution .. lots do 4k@60mhz though. Oh well, I'll revert to using the input selector on the monitor itself. I like using FreeSync
