    At home I use a Dell U2410. I'll never go back to any other type of monitor other than IPS again. The cheap TN monitors just don't cut it anymore with all the color shifting.

    At work, I have this 17" Hyundai panel that has been used for so long that the task bar is actually burnt into the screen.
    Yes

    The common misconception is that it is somehow capitalistically virtuous to save money on hardware, when the opposite is true. Anyone on a computer all day should have at least two monitors and lots of screen real estate.

    I have dual 22" widescreen monitors at work. Two widescreen monitors side by side is pretty wide, which infringes a little bit on my space to lay out large drawings. I need to do a little rearranging and see if I can't improve this. It is helpful to me to have lots of space. Usually I sit where one of the monitors is more directly in front of me and I put my main apps there when I'm working on them. Secondary apps, windows I'm not working with right away, I drag to the other monitor. This is much faster for me than using the taksbar to switch apps because believe it or not when I shift focus to the taskbar to find another window, it interrupts my thought process. I do a lot better if I can move my cursor over to another window and drag it back in front of me, this is much less of an interruption.

    At home I have an older 20" LCD (4:3) that I bought on ebay so I would get something better than a TN panel. At times I wish it was larger, when I need to have several windows open to work with.

    I use a 15" touchscreen at work, sometimes just the smartphone screen.

    24" Widescreen. It's nice for CAD and working on spreadsheets with reference info in a split window.

    My last job gave me a 17" CRT. A newer, bigger one might have been nice, but I couldn't see any real justification for asking for one. My work there was about 50% at my desk.

    In my experience a large fraction of businesses go through very slow replacement cycles on things like monitors, so you can end up seeing a large variety of ages and styles.

    I haven't found really found that. I think I'd get fairly minimal use out of a second monitor. A lot of people get used to using certain setups without much consideration of how much it really affects productivity.

    Dual 22" widescreens. Nice for CAD. Also nice for programming when Matlab and all of its tools are on one screen, and either my plots or help files are on the other.
