I'm currently using a 15" laptop with a 23" AOC monitor as my trading setup, but I'd like to upgrade to a desktop/quad monitor array.

Space is at a premium so I wonder if anybody has any recommendations with respect to minimum screen size and resolution. I love the 1920x1080 AOC monitor I have but four of the buggers would seem a bit like overkill.

Any thoughts from those with quad setups gratefully received.

I use a 43 inch curved TV and then use a software to screen split it how I choose (DisplayFusion). I wouldn't go back to using multiple monitors again.

Ah, that's interesting. I've got a 43" Panasonic HDTV about to become redundant with the arrival of a 4k Samsung. It's going to look like a monster on my desk, though :-).

What I'm aiming for is three different BA screens and either BF Live Video or ATR/RUK on the fourth. Would that be possible with your setup, bearing in mind I'd have to take a feed from a Sky Q Mini box?

You won't be able to have more than 1 input so it would either be the Sky stream or the PC...i guess thats the only downside...or just get greedy and have a mini tv for TV as well :D

That looks like a very clean image. There's no pixellation or movement blur?

Nah nothing like that at all. Its a 4k which you probably need for the resolution to split well. Had the set up for nearly a year now and love it. Lots of flexibility with it that you don't get with standard monitors in my opinion
