  1. 1. When you have 2 different monitors, which side does the better of the two go?

When you have 2 different monitors, either as a gamer who upgraded to a 144hz screen or an artist who could only afford 1 pro display XDR, you have to place one monitor next to the other if you planed to use both. I want to know where and why you place your monitor where you do, even if the answer is ‘it felt natural’.

For me, everytime I get a new monitor, the oldest one gets trashed, and everything shifts to the left to make room for the new fastest screen on the right.

I would have my better monitor in the middle, the one I use most often, and my secondary monitor on the side, for me the left since my pc tower is on my right. That's how I like it

Honestly I've done all of these and it just depends on the set up


At work I have secondary on the left, at home I have secondary on the right- both feel "Normal"

I have a secondary (pretty bad) 60hz 21” monitor next to my laptop. I put it on the right side mostly because that’s how it fit best on my desk. When I had the same screen next to my iMac (pls don’t judge it was before I knew anything about computers) it was on the left.

I leave the primary screen where it was and put the secondary where it fits best on the desk.

I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.
