I frequently need to refer to one screen (a manual, web page, 5250 session, etc.) while working in another. When I only have 1 display, I have to alt-tab a lot more, and it's harder to keep everything straight while jumping back and forth. With 2 displays it's much easier and therefore saves time.

I do have to say that if you can't arrange the screens so they're comfortable to look at and set things so that mouse and cursor movements are natural, it can be annoying.

I tried using two screens and just found it annoying. How does it
increase your productivity? I find I can only work on one item at a time,
so the only difference, (for me), was in the ability to have more windows
open for viewing.
