TS Giveaway: Gallery submission highlights

By on December 6, 2009, 3:56 PM
Update: Contest winners have now been announced. As we close down our latest giveaway, I wanted to highlight some awesome photo submissions that were uploaded as contest entries for the second part of the giveaway. Users were asked to show the TechSpot homepage in as many screens as possible, with each screen increasing your chances of winning. This lead to some rather creative ways to get as many as 28 screens together in a single shot.

Winners for both contests will still be chosen randomly, and announced before Monday coverage starts end of day, Monday. In the meantime, check these out:

Note: I chose as many photos as possible, inevitably leaving out many great submissions in the process, if yours wasn't included here don't feel bad about it - you can still win the giveaway which is what matters the most .

I can't believe that some home users have that many screens

I have 3 (for 3 computers) and I thought that was over the top

I only use two screens for my main PC and one is actually used for two computers. The laptops are just easily thrown in just about anywhere.

Damn, my submission didn't made it to the final cut :/ :p

@BlackIrish, I don't think they're choosing the winner based on the above photos. They just showed the photos for people to check out. If your submission isn't shown above, you can still win.

Yay my submission is the first one! Does that mean I get a better "random" chance?

Doctor_hv said:

wow, so much hardware on one place... well, it's easy when you get to work in a computer lab... I don't even have a laptop, only a PC, that's why I only applied for the first contest...

I tried to note that on the post, the pictures above are not finalists or anything of that nature, they are just random picks from the submissions we received. The contest drawing still consists of a random pick from the pool of participants (multiplied by the number of screens).

I have three computers each with two monitors my wife and I both have "Smart" phones and I have a laptop. Not to meantion that with our consoles we can get on the net so that could add 2 extra view screens right there...damn I should have entered the contest @_@ oh well. So @Kimsland yes it is very easy to get a lot of screens up.

yorro said:

I got 6 Monitors, that dude only got 5.

I guess they ban you in both contests.

Would have loved some of those setups :-) Although i am glad i don't have to pay for the tech refresh on them every couple years ;-)

buttus said:

I thought last year I rocked with it 4 screens...but then whammo, some had 20 or 30 screens in their IT labs so I didn't bother posting one this year. I'll just hope for something from the first contest.

I had to push my luck with college computers hehe.

Still I have 8 screens at home, 2 netbooks, a notebook, 2 HD tvs, LCD computer screen, 2 phones web-capable. If you take into consideration I would take the picture from one of the phones that would have left me with 7 screens >.<

insect said:

Haha! Those are awesome. Best use of a computer lab ever too.

I have the speakers (Logitech Z5500s) from the first screenie. Awesome set!

TomSEA TomSEA, TechSpot Chancellor, said:

LOL...very clever shots. I'm glad I don't have that much gear to mess with. One screen is fine for me.

Puiu Puiu said:

I really like the last picture. It's really shows how much he wants to win ^_^.

Good luck everyone!

ET3D, TechSpot Paladin, said:

Impressive. I could probably have gotten 7 screens: wife's laptop, my laptop, my desktop, TV and extra screen with two of these, two phones. Hmmm, probably could have used the second TV, too. So 8. But I'd have been a lot of work to get all of them working and in one picture. I didn't want to enter anyway.

LightHeart said:

Wow some amazing photos and people with some good gear.

Wish I could've submitted, but I kept forgetting to pick up my camera from my wife's office Too bad too 'cause I would've liked to have a shot at either of the prizes.

Mine is the 8th one down. 4 screens, 3 computers (Mac OS X 10.5, Win 7, PuppyLinux). I didn't feel too bad about using 4 screens for 3 computers because I have a Mac Mini attached to my TV in the other room and it didn't get moved to take the picture

Richy2k9 said:

BlindObject said:

BlindObject said:

lfg18 said:

Hey mine is the 3rd one, I gathered 13 screens, was difficult but I did it.

Razerblade said:

Wow some people could get a lot of screens in one place! i would have struggled with this as i only have 3 computer screens and a mobile phone which would be able to get the homepage on. Cannot wait to hear who has won the competitions!
