I think the headline about covers it. Is it a USB video card? Is it a monitor dongle? A little of both I guess. One things for sure for about 10,000yen you can have your very own I-O Data “USB-RGB”! Reports claim its CPU intensive, which is logical, but have no data to back it […]

Reviews of the newly released Digital (read DVI) versions of the DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go are popping up.

Stick to reviews from more reputable sites sutch […]

EverythingUSB.Com wrote a good review about a USB monitor that you would more likely be able to purchase sometime in the future. The Samsung 940UX, it still has no posted MSRP but if I had to guess, I would say it costs 300-400$ until USB monitors become more mainstream. You can only daisy-chain up to […]

I think I am in love. SmartSquare together with AMOSLab sent a couple guys over to a huge communications expo called CommunicAsia to show off their newest product offerings. A USB monitor called Ukeymo. Designed to simplify, and reduce costs associated with adding multiple monitors. Right now their smaller screens with resalutions up to 1024×768 […]

Looks like there’s a new sheriff in town and Westinghouse LVM-37W3 37″ 1080p display is his name. My brothers over at the [H]ardOCP Forums have been raving about this inexpensive HD display as an inexpensive large monitor for quite some time. 37 inches, with a native resolution of 1920 x 1080, fast response time, and […]

This is the rig that really expanded my mind from “Dual-Monitor” to “Multi-Monitor” back before I even had my own first Dual-Monitor Rig. Steve Ferris, knowing no limits back in March of 2002 unveiled to the gaming community something that would never be forgotten. Using 9 PC’s running Windows 98SE, 13 Monitors, Flight Simulator 2002, […]

Late last month Matrox started shipping the Digital (Read DVI) versions of their TripleHead2Go product. Normally I’m not a fan of a product that simply spans one image across multiple displays, productivity better gained with multiple separate desktops, but the effect of a larger monitor cannot be ignored. But the Digital version of this product […]
