I have the IKEA Markus, it is literally a pain in the ass. Not enough padding on the seat, I had to put a cushion on it so my butt doesn't fall asleep. The tall headrest is nice though, but because the angle of it is fixed I find it is slightly too far back for head support unless I'm taking a nap.
Thanks for the response, may look at something else now. Cheers.

Thanks for all the inspirations to get multi monitors ;)

1 30" NEC MultiSync PA301W and 2 23" EA232WMi for references.

"Bookshelf" They are just wooden crates, got it from Borders when they closed.
Table is a bit of a mess but oh wells.

I do a lot of design and color correction....definitely love the PA301W.

Here is my Portrait/Landscape/Portrait setup using the Ergotron LX Triple display lift.



The center landscape display is an LG 29EA73 and the 2 side displays are LG 24EC53s.
My desktop is extended across all three monitors using Eyefinity.
The setup from left to right is 1080x1920 (portrait), 2560x1080 (landscape), and 1080x1920 (portrait flipped).

Because the center monitor is so wide (21:9), I had use an Ergotron Quick Release bracket with spacers.
The mounts for the 2 side displays are on the very end of the horizontal mounting arm.

The weight of all three monitors is just over 25lbs which is on the extreme low end of the recommended weight range.
After I made a big adjustment to the lift pressure, the simultaneous lift worked great.

Got my Obutto R3Volution gaming cockpit / Asus VG278HE monitor and set it up last night. Not 100% done yet, need to order some longer cables / usb extensions to do some cable management but here it is atm.

Unique? Hardly. Great? Definitely!
I agree that this setup might not be unique but it is definitely premium with the 21:9 widescreen center landscape monitor and the 2 side portrait monitors.

Before, I had two 19" 1280x1024 monitors.
The 2560x1080 center landscape monitor basically replaces the two previous monitors.
Then you add the two side 1080x1920 portrait monitors that are great for viewing long websites, file explorer, or many lines of code.

I have seen several other portrait/landscape/portrait setups where the height (actually the width turned 90 degrees) of the side portrait monitors was matched to the height of the center landscape monitor.

I wasn't sure that I would like it but now I really like the extra tall side monitors.
For Portrait mode, just make sure you get IPS displays that have the wide viewing angles or they can look washed out at the wrong angle.

I had PLP myself, looks great but the lack of support for Eyefinity/nVsurround made me kill it off. I personally don't care much for the super-tall portrait monitors (I use one at work) but that's just me.

I would drop to 3 monitors if they ever made a 44 jnch 4K monitor...

So you are not using this for a racing sim?

How is it for normal computer use or other types of gaming?

At that point in the picture i haven't installed the wheel, pedal and shifter yet. if you see under the Ikea Galant desk i have the pedal's installed on the platform. I have everything installed now, just cable management is a PITA atm. need to order some longer cables and thinking of a wireless mouse as well. Also in the near future i'll be ordering the side monitor arms and 2 more of these Asus 27inch monitors for racing games. I doubt my 670 FTW card could do surround on BF4 with nice eye candy enabled so just going to enable them during racing games. I am also planning on purchasing the buttkicker to mount at the rear of the seat. Save lil each month and purchase as when i can.

@ Kryckter - Its INSANELY comfortable. I have horrible seating posture and all the PC chair's ive owned always start to slop to one side. Main reason i got this cockpit was for the more even seat anchor being a real vehicle seat, it mount on both side w/ a sliding rail. I do need to raise the monitor up a notch so the top of my wheel doesn't block some hotbars and other info from games.

Doesn't your Qnix get to 120hz? Or do you mainly watch movies (i have mine @ 96hz for movies 120 for gaming)

I haven't really tried to get it to work, but I was getting some green lines at 120hz.

Perhaps I just need to adjust timings and try a different DVI cable but I haven't been gaming a whole lot so I can live with 96hz.

I spend most of my time watching TV, twitch streams, browsing the net and irc.

The game I've played the most this year is CS:GO and I'd rather pick up a 24" 1080p 144hz Asus for that if I was going to start playing seriously again.

Here's mine. 3x30 inch 2560x1600 old school Dell 3007 panels and a 50 inch LG i scored on black Friday this year.

Most likely downgrading with the move in with the girlfriend in a new apartment though.

EDIT: took me forever to resize this damn thing.

What are those acrylic looking squares you are using for monitor stands?

Those are your typical glass blocks you can find at your local big box hardware store (Home Depot or Lowes).

Yes, exactly what the other poster said.

I have a pair of glass blocks under each speaker with some non skid foam from a roll cut to fit under the blocks and under the speakers.

It worked pretty well to raise those speakers up for a bit better sound stage.

Took this on a whim. I don't have enough desk space for "perfect" landscape, and I'm not digging portrait all that much... until I bust out a racing sim or something.

Nice setup! You should spend some more time with portrait. Maybe it will grow on ya :)

I gotta say I'll miss the big picture when I move to a single 4k panel. ;)
