Great setups d_stilgar and loki_racer! Portrait EF for life! :D I work from home sometimes as well. The setup is great for productivity.

STALKER, I'm pretty sure I have the exact same chair as you :)

I don't like this chair, thinking of replacing it with something else.

There are hundreds of thousands of people that still play it according to their newly released API that I've been playing with.

"Bezel correction" only gives the illusion that they aren't in the way.If I had a car with a thin black beam down the middle of the driver's side windshield, it wouldn't prevent me from being able to see anything (since it's so thin) but it would always be annoying. No different for me with Eyefinity bezels. Had to switch to a 30" and then two 24s in portrait but not in Eyefinity mode. Much happier.

I do have to concede that one downside with portrait EF is that when a game doesn't support EF resolutions (i.e. 3600x1920), there is no easy fallback, where as in landscape EF, you can always just run it in the center monitor. Due to this reason, I have contemplated switching to a 20"-30"-20" PLP configuration. Unfortunately the drivers still do not support PLP Eyefinity mode.

How do you like your xps 13 ? Im pretty happy with mine.

I have two complaints so far. The touch pad buttons are still part of the touch pad. So sometimes my click finger moves the mouse. Also, since I'm a programmer, I use the End and Home keys a lot, and the keyboard requires using Function to use either of these keys.

Other than that, I wish I could have waited for Ivy Bridge, but I had to have a laptop now (Romanians have been stealing miles of telephone line knocking out internet for weeks, so I had to have a laptop so I could work remotely from places that still have internet).

It's a nice little laptop so far. Worth the cash if you ask me.

Same here cash wise and neediong it now and I even bought the 256 version. as for the fn keys I just put it to have all the media keys as #1 and the f keys as fn, I know that doesnt solve your problem just thought id throw it out.

I hated the trackpad at first but it got 100% better as soon as I updated the bios and trackpad drivers.

What monitors is your buddy using? The portrait monitors don't look like 4:3 1600x1200 which are normal for 20-30-20 PLP layouts.

I'd like to know as well. I'm thinking about switching from 3x24 Portrait to 20-30-20 PLP.

did you order all 3 at once? how do you like them?

I ordered the first one from DCsamsungmall for test run. It has minor defects but overall was fine. So I ordered 2 more from samsungkorea who sold 2 for $780. I also had a 10% off ebay coupon so it worked out perfectly. I really enjoy them for daily use. Gaming on all 3 is not possible at this time but hopefully at a later date. Well worth the $1140 or so considering my former Dell U3011 cost that much.

Yes it is his latest build. More pics in the case mod gallery in the thread Deskbottom.

I am not sure what the monitors are but will ask him.

Just added 2 20" to my 30"

What monitors are these? The stands don't look like the dell stands. Also, it looks like the color is a little different on the two 20s than the center monitor but that could be the camera or something.

I just bought 2 of these L200ME And my center one is a Samsung 305T

I love pLp because LLL at 30" is expensive, takes up too much desk space, and causes me to spin my head too much.

Test fit of the PLP setup after moving into new house.. Ugh so much cabling to do (must be neat). Finished pictures soon I hope.

Loving these P+L+P setups :cool:

I would much rather have your 20"+30"+20" than my 3 x 27"
