New Monitor

Today I got a new 24” Samsung T240 for my office at home. I’ve been working from home a lot recently and have really been missing my dual monitor setup from work, even though it is only my laptop with an old 17” LCD. Two monitors definitely make a big difference to my productivity when coding. I already had a 22” Samsung 226BW, which now looks thoroughly inadequate next to the 24” as you can see from the photo below.

Once I got used to the larger monitor I had a pretty productive day though. The T240 is a decent monitor for developing on, judging from one day’s usage. Text is clear, and after a little tweaking the colour looked about right, enough for my purposes anyway. Not to mention it is a nice looking monitor. All in all, it was well worth the money I/the business spent on it.
