Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

My office is 15'x10' and I have a built in 30"deep U shaped desk. The inner edge of the desk is a total of 23.5'. The section of the desk you can see in the photo is 9.5' across. You can't see it but I have more computers to the right of me (back up system) and to the left of me (sim setup - I never trade and test on the same box) but those are just single 30" monitor's and not multi-monitor like the main setup.

thanks for the layout. these 40in monitors dimensions are (W x H x D): TV w/ stand: 36.2" x 23.2" x 11.6". im not sure they would fit on a 78in desktop. maybe they will with and overhang as long as the base is on it fine but im not sure, the base on these looks rather large.

dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

as big as they are you might be just fine with them sitting next to each other in portrait mode... Which would definitely solve the space issue.

Portrait mode on a 40" would be a neck killer.

My solution was the wall mount I linked earlier. First, it allows me to lower the monitor a bit (no stand underneath) and second better position it. My desk itself can be moved towards me, keeping the monitors near wall. This should save me from having to buy a new desk until after I move into my new house.

ya i wont be running any in portrait mode on my 3 main monitors in this type of setup. i once tangled with the idea of having smaller monitors grouped like the picture below with 2 in portrait on the sides for news feeds, chat, etc but with these larger screen it wouldnt really be needed.

i wouldnt be able to hang these anywhere. worst case is i can have a custom desktop made and just buy the frame/electronics separately. if i go this route there will be three monitors so that is my real issue.

Having had a six monitor setup before (3 across, 2 rows), i would never do it again. The gaps caused by the angles just killed it for me.

exactly why i was thinking 3 curved or flat 40s would be perfect at 4k. time will tell, and i have some before i put things into motion.

Review of the new Sammys

Samsung UE48JU7500 (JU7500) Review


Quoting 
"More impressive was the UE48JU7500′s screen uniformity, helped perhaps by its likely direct LED underpinning. We ran various shades of full-field grey patterns on the 4K TV, and detected no visible banding; nor did we witness any significant dirty screen effect (DSE) in panning shots during live football broadcast."

"Watch out Sony, Samsung is going after the “best gaming TV” crown you’ve comfortably held since 2013. The 48in JU7500 delivered the lowest input lag we’ve recorded yet from a 4K Ultra HD TV, coming in at 21ms according to our Leo Bodnar tester device.

Owners who care about full 4:4:4 chroma reproduction when playing PC games will also be pleased to know that input lag in [PC] mode measured an acceptable 36ms. "

Man, please let my two be OK and not cracked/damaged... it would basically be a total loss if it was, the cost to return it would be equal the monitor and customs doesn't give refunds for import tax...
