GM screens are a valuable tool in running RPGs, and whilst it isn’t the first thing to be made, it is usually one of the first extras provided for an RPG, as such, what are your preferences when running a game?

I think screens present an effective tabletop mechanism for hiding notes while not creating too much of a barrier between players and DM if landscape. At the same time, I like having a screen in digital format because it makes for a convenient reference mechanism if the tabletop doesn't have the real estate space for another "thing." I mean, tables can quickly get cluttered with stuff and sometimes the GM can't claim the space.

landscape is always good. If you had a portrait one it could be harder to look over and interact with people. 

but the DM screen is an important piece of equipment for a DM in my eyes

My only other thought in this is that if your going to put the same content on both screens why not make both.   Its a bit more layout time, but designing 2 slightly different layouts is totally manageable.
