    I think I'll just ask my Financial Director whether she's happy with it. The monitor I mean.

    That probably has a lot to do with the 4cm thick desktop I put it on.
    My desk handled my Philips 40 inch monitor fine, but something about the weight distribution.

    Had a look online and said that standing desks often have this issue. But if yours is fine that's great. Just my findings

    Get yourself a Gold Business Amex, register for the 10% cashback offer, buy the item, settle up and cancel the card. No fee for the first year of use

    You can also use the membership points you'll earn as statement credits.

    I'm wondering if I can justify a Dell U4919DW (49", 5120 x 1440 pixels).
    Same size and resolution as my 2 monitors for only twice the combined price.

    This replaced my Philips 40 inch monitor (which was fine).

    I found myself switching between applications a fair bit on the 40 inch monitor so moving to a wide screen has been a good move. If you do a lot of programming in one IDE and not much switching then the 40 inch monitor is better for reading code, you just have more height.

    The Samsung is pretty good for connectivity, I can switch between my laptop and pc, fairly easily. If you do have a mac make sure it can support the resolution, for example my Mac Mini won't support the full resolution of the wide screen monitor.

    One very minor issue, if you do have a stand up desk putting a widescreen monitor with all the weight on it may cause some rocking, it's annoying.
