    I could never do mturk with one monitor. I'm honestly not sure how people do it.

    Can I get a ruling on Andrew Luck's relative attractiveness please LIz? I like him as a player but he looks like a goofy bridge troll.

    More or less I have the screen split in half with active work/hit queue/dashboard on the right, hit finder/catcher take the top left, videos and general nonsense bottom left.

    Yeah, I still do this. Hit Forker/Panda crazy/videos on the right screen, main screen has surveys. I also usually have 10+ tabs open. It's a pain as is. I think ya'll should look into getting another monitor.

    Thanks for satisfying my curiosity. I wondered if it was just me.

    I've considered throwing a 42" into the mix, between that and the 55" would take up a good bit of space though.

    I've got a 22 in portrait mode that runs HIT FINDER and HIT CATCHER to complement my 50'. I also use it for anything that I want to see up close and personal. That one dedicated piece of real estate really makes a lot more room.

    I turk on a 13" MacBook Pro. Lots of tabs, and sound notifications are used to tell me where to look.

    its not the number of monitors that counts
    its how you use each one that matters

    I'm turking off a laptop so old it only can run Vista, and 90% of scripts don't work on it.

    ...maybe that's the tears and not the one monitor lmao

    Sheesh walked away when I thought everyone was done talking. :)

    Four monitors *for now*. The machine I built can run six. I actually have enough monitors though I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel if I run that many.

    I've always preferred being able to see something at a glance rather than keeping track of stuff in the background. At my last desk job I had three 24" monitors, and my gaming PC runs two 27s and there's an all-in-one 23" machine next to it for other stuff I want to do at the same time.

    I also have a 40" 1080p display but it would be hard to mount and while it would be good for some jobs that's actually kind of low resolution for a screen that size so I'd have trouble running, for example, 4 windows on it. Also some things like to take over the whole display.

    When I started with two, I immediately began running into a wish for more. I probably won't catch many more Prolific jobs, for example, because most of them are early AM, but if I have it in a window I'll catch more than just having one tab among many.

    Ideally I'd have a "catcher" screen, one for the forum, two for alternative mTurk jobs, one or two for non-mTurk stuff. That's 5 or 6. I pretty much don't do non-work stuff at the work PC, because that would be SOOOOOOO easy.

    I bet it can run 7. Not saying it's easy, but I bet it can. I mean you probably need something newer, also.
