Windows 7: Monitor Question

Monitor Question

Hey guys,

Right now I have this monitor:
Amazon.com: ASUS VH226H 21.5-Inch Widescreen LCD Monitor - Black: Computer & Accessories
I wanted to go ahead and buy a new monitor, so I am torn between getting the same monitor here:
Newegg.com - ASUS VH226H Black 21.5" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen 16:9 Full HD 1080P LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 (ASCR 12000 : 1) Built in Speakers
Or buying a slightly larger monitor for 10 dollars more:
Amazon.com: ASUS VH236H 23 Inch Widescreen LCD Monitor - Black: Computer & Accessories
I was wondering what your opinion on this matter was? Do you guys think having two slightly different monitors will look bad/not work?
PS: I am also looking for a monitor "arm" so I can suspend the two monitors. Thanks for your time.

Hello Rose,

While bigger is usually always better, I would say getting another ASUS VH226H 21.5" monitor may be best in this case. This way they will both be the same and same size to make them blend together better. Especially if you decide to have the monitors display as if they were one monitor instead of two separate monitors.

Hope this helps some,
Shawn

It depends how you want it, it doesn't bother me personally. I have a 23" hp monitor and a 19" acer monitor together and they work fine and look ok to me but if I were you I would head towards the 23" if you could.
