I actually grabbed a third 19" monitor and put it on my desk, and determined that trying to work between monitors 1 and 3 was unwieldy. The documents really do want to be next to one another, so I decided to stick with just two monitors and swap pages on the left one as needed.

Triton VGA to USB adapter.

I've installed them on a few Radiologist PCs. They view medical shenigians with three 19" monitors turned vertical.

There's been 0 complaints and some of the doctors are pretty picky.

I wouldn't mind having a "Swordfish" type setup as a friend enjoys.

Nah, there's a difference between that which looks cool from 10 feet away and that which is ergonomically convenient while sitting in front of it. The mockup I did with three monitors demonstrated that was too much to deal with assuming that the content across all three was associated.

Eight monitors would be cool if I was displaying the realtime status of Soviet armed forces across the globe, not so much for working across multiple sheets of the same document.

My friend uses a large central monitor. With a smaller one to either side of it. And then three more in a row above those. This is all integrated into a fancy desk and shelf setup at his home. So he may have stock screens going on one, work right in front of him, car forums on another etc. Banking, Sports, etc. This is just a home setup so it does not have to be rational or justified. Although he is a dentist, he used to be a computer hacker and still makes money for some old encryption arrangements.

What is the nature of your use exactly, that multiple screens would do you right?

At the office, I do a lot of systems-level wiring design for radio stations. You know what a punch-block looks like? Imagine a couple hundred of them all mounted to a single wall, with several thousand individual wires running between them.

One of my jobs is to design and document all that wiring. As an example, I have the design for WCBS-AM up on my system right now. That station has 3000 pair on the wall just by itself, and it's being integrated into a facility with five other radio stations. Once this one is added in, the wall as a whole will have appx. 17,000 pair on it. That's a lot of documentation. And each one of those wires has an "other" end that also gets documented. The Phone Company is about the only place where you'll find more wiring in a single room. I would dare say that any one of my facilities has more cross-connects in it than all of Google, and I crank out about one of these per year.

While I use AutoCAD and Visio to do the conceptual designs, I use Excel to crank out the detailed documentation, one wire at a time. I typically have one sheet per block. So to document a wire between Block A and Block B, I will have the sheet for Block A open on the left screen, and the sheet for Block B open on the right screen.

I'll also have a third document, which is a master layout of all of the blocks in any given room, and sometimes a fourth and fifth document as well, containing detail as to what is happening on the "other end" of whenever the two blocks that I'm working on at any given time go.

The master layout I always print out on actual paper, so I can jot notes on it. It'd be nice to be able to pull up the detail documents on a third and fourth monitor, but the ergonomics of it just don't seem practical in this case.
