Study Says 24-Inch Monitors Can Make You More Productive

NEC 24" Monitor

A joint study by NEC Display Solutions of America and the University of Utah has indicated that increasing monitor size translates to significant productivity gains and cost savings over single, smaller monitors.

The study found that moving from single 18-inch traditional-format monitors to 24-inch widescreen displays reduced the time it took to complete a task from 8 hours to 5-1/2 hours. Over the course of a year, that translates to a savings of up to 76 days in production, or about $8,600 per employee (based on a $32,500 annual salary; for people with higher salaries, the savings is greater).

“The study revealed that large widescreen or dual-monitor configurations are recommended for use in any situation where multiple documents of information are an ordinary part of work,” said Dr. James A. Anderson, Ph.D., the lead author of the study and a Professor of Communication at the University of Utah.
