    I saw that pop up a couple weeks ago and read those orders were canceled, this one was $256.01 on Amazon.
    Figured I would give it a shot and it went through!

    Oh, didn't know the orders got canceled. The lowest I've seen an LG 34" was at Costco a few months ago for $279. My friend bought one since he liked my 34".

    I've never been a fan of how cluttered my desk looks with 5.1 speakers, but after months of not using them, hearing the quality is a revelation, each time. Guess they'll stay on the desk for a little while...

    Samsung 6290 40" 4k TV 2017, and Dell 34" Ultrawide Curved. I just put the TV in today and mounted the Dell above it. :)

    Assuming you have a six-output video card and a CPU/motherboard with 3 outputs the monitors cost me about $2000 CDN.

    The LG 34" that I moved upstairs to my bedroom.
    For some odd reason, this monitor looks much larger when I am sitting at it upstairs, vs when I was sitting at in the garage.
    Don't know what is up with that.
    It is also a bit too high, need to mod the desk and get the monitor to sit on the main desk area, or get a monitor arm that allows me to get the monitor to sit much lower.

    I wouldn't mod the desk, I would consider getting an arm so you can move the monitor as you see fit (up-down-left-right.) Then later if you decide you want another monitor boom just add another arm extension and you are golden. You can find some decent arms on amazon for pretty cheap.

    I simply don't know how anyone could use a single monitor (excluding ultra wide screens) anymore, it just feels so limiting.

    Multi monitor with Windows virtual desktops is just the best thing ever.

    Your tower is uncomfortably close to the edge of your desk for me.

    Yeah...I can't ever go back to a single display anymore. Perhaps I can work with a large 4k screen...but a single 1080p or 1440p monitor is not something I can work with. I need a secondary display.

    I pulled my old UV system out and turned it on this weekend and the LIS POP is still working like a champ.

    that is a custom desk a friend made in the mid 90's. He gave it to me in 1997 or 98. It used to be brown.

    Wow, I remember your original setup from my early years as a lurker on [H]. Are those Samsung monitors or TVs?
