Could a 30-in. monitor help you do your job faster?: We’ve discussed this theory before. I don’t know if it’s true, but I do know that I really want that 30” monitor.
Providing employees with 30-in. computer monitors can boost worker productivity at companies where 17-in. or 19-in. monitors are typically used, according to a French consultant hired for a study sponsored by Apple.
The study, which evaluated Apple’s 30-inch Apple Cinema Display, concluded that large screens can offer gains of up to 50 percent to 65 percent in productivity on a variety of specific office tasks and can earn back their extra costs in time savings over several years.
There’s apparently some controversy, because Apple sponsored an “independent” report that nicely coincides with a big moneymaker for them, but they’re certainly not the first to do that.
Are dual monitors just as good? On the surface, I’d rather just have one big one, but perhaps there’s some benefit in having separately manipulate-able screens?
