How to Set Up a Four Monitor Set Up

A 4 monitor set up is not only super functional for working or gaming but also brings out the room’s home office aesthetics and makes your setup look groovy. However, having multiple monitors scattered all over the desk isn’t good for your productivity or looks and can cause messy wires. This is why you need a monitor stand or a quad monitor mount that fuses every component and makes your setup look closely knitted and appealing.

When shopping for a quad monitor mount or stand you need to keep a few things in mind:

You should always go with a stand that supports the shape, model and weight specifications of your monitors. You also want the stand to have a cable management system that keeps the wires in place and free of mess. Lastly, the type of ports on the monitor should match with those on your CPU and GPU to ensure that all screens work properly.

The best way to go about a four monitor set up is by stacking two same-sized monitors on each end with one larger screen in the middle. This will provide you with the most aesthetically pleasing configuration and is the most common choice among users.

The only downside to this layout is that it can be exhausting for the eyes as you have to keep tabs on all three screens almost at once. The good news is that you can prevent eye strain by learning shortcuts and taking frequent breaks. Also, you can use a tool like Cursor Lock to prevent the mouse cursor from drifting onto another screen.
