Anyone use a monitor set vertically

I was given 2 hp monitors that turn vertically if needed. Just curious if anybody actually uses monitors in this method.

Im thinking if hooking both of them up and trying to run one on each side of my main monitor. they are both 22 inches.

I have 2 21.5 inch monitors and yes, one is in portrait mode.
There's an old saying... Once you've gone portrait, the rest is horse s***.

At home, I only use a monitor set to vertical when I'm playing vertically oriented arcade games.

At work, I ALWAYS use it vertically, since I usually analyze VERY large documents, and the vertical orientation helps minimize the need to scroll down constantly. ^^
