Product Description

This USB Display Adapter enables you to connect one more monitor, LCD or projector to a computer with a USB 2.0 port. For desktop users adding an extra monitor via USB connection is easier than ever without having to open the computer chassis to install an internal video card. Once the installation is done, the USB-attached monitor soon wakes up. No function key hassle to swap a second monitor. With this handy adapter, you can enjoy many benefits brought by an add-on monitor. The most obvious one is that you get more desktop area to have more applications visible at one time. For example, you may work on one monitor while your family watching video on the other. No more stacking windows within the confines of a single display. Or you may span an application, e.g. spreadsheets, across two sides of displays. What's more, the adapter is hot pluggable. If you are not using the extra monitor, just unplug the adapter at any time; no reboot needed.

Product Reviews

  • "Worked as expected" by rolandocordero on 10/15/2012
    Overall: 5 out of 5
    Value:
    Quality:

    I ordered this unit to install a second monitor to my assistant´s desktop PC, who is not computer savy, and she installed it herself without any help. Being USB it was very easy to install and will allow to move the monitor elsewhere if somebody else needs it.
