Maybe not for every day use,at home, but for maximum eye catching effects of a trade fair, in a shop window or elsewhere: With SwitchResX you can mirror screens both horizontally and vertically, thus creating stunning effects. Straight from your menu bar! More resolutions to choose from scratch, easy setup of new display settings, saving desktops right from the menu bar —there are plenty of helpful bits implemented in SwitchResX, that make life easier. My pair of 24" x monitors were behaving very oddly with my Mac mini - icons and windows all over the place.

Anyway, I downloaded SwitchResX and it sorted everything out perfectly. It worked.
