We present an intrusive evaluation of three different peripheral display systems on the same financial data set. Our results indicate there is a significant difference on a primary task performance and a peripheral comprehension task between large and small displays. Furthermore, we have found that distraction may be composed by display-distraction and self-interruption, and that animation may only influence the display-distraction. In addition, this paper proposes a measurement of efficiency derived from cognitive science. Finally, we propose three guidelines for peripheral display design.
