DisplayLink, EVGA bring USB graphics adapters to mass market

PC Perspective.com
“The EVGA UV Plus+ is a USB-based video adapter that allows both desktops and laptops with Windows operating systems to extend or mirror their virtual desk space for improved productivity. Yeah, that sounds like a good tag line for a marketing manual but that really is a perfect description of the device.“

“We've heard your cries for USB-to-DVI adapters that don't cost two arms and a good portion of your left leg, and apparently so has EVGA. Announced today with DisplayLink, the company is serving up two new USB graphics adapters (UGAs) in the UV Plus+ family of wares, both of which are hitting resellers as we speak for "well under $100." Both peripherals are designed to play nice in Windows XP and Vista, and while the UV12 supports resolutions up to 1,280 x 1,024 (1,440 x 900 widescreen), the UV16 goes all the way up to 1,600 x 1,200 (1,680 x 1,050 widescreen). Kudos for lowering the bar EVGA, now it's time for everyone else to follow suit.”

"I took a deeper look at DisplayLink in February and was actually floored by how easy it was to setup."

“DisplayLink and EVGA today announced that they have teamed to deliver a new generation of affordable USB graphics adapters (UGAs) for mass-market retail consumers.”

“If you don't run dual monitor setups, you have no idea what you are missing. And it is extremely easy to do. But EVGA just announced a box that will let you add even more monitors very easily. (I would really like 4 actually)”
