Kensington’s new adapter makes adding additional monitors a breeze
I’m a habitual multitasker. I actually have trouble only doing one thing at a time, as I generally feel like I’m being lazy if I focus the whole of my attention on a single task. This is why I run off of a pair of monitors instead of just one (not to mention it just looks cool). I’ve known more than a few people that thought my setup was unnecessary, and said that they’d never use a second monitor. That usually only lasts until I let them use my PC for a little while, then they begin to see just how beneficial that extra real estate can be.
Unfortunately for those that aren’t gamers, they require a new video card just to hook up multiple displays. Plenty of people are scared to crack the case on their computer, so this Dual Monitor Adapter from Kensington would definitely come in handy.
Kensington unveiled this handy little device at CES this week. Utilizing the latest DisplayLink software they are able to get resolutions of up to 1440 x 1050 and still allow for the use of 3D-intisive features such as Vista’s Aero interface. Like other DisplayLink devices, you can run up to 6 monitors off of a single USB port. Look for this device to ship in both DVI and VGA flavors for $99 sometime in Q2 of this year.
