Are you one to work with multiple monitors? Well, I would assume that you have a pretty beefy computer system to be able to handle a multiple monitor set up, but do spare a thought for folks who want to do the same without splurging on expensive new hardware. IOGEAR thinks it has the solution with a USB 2.0 External DVI Video Card, instantly opening up an additional DVI or VGA computer screen via a USB connection. All you need to do to start rocking to two monitors is to hook up the adapter to the USB port, install the included driver and you’re good to go. There is no more hassle of opening up a dusty computer case nor running the risk of suffering cuts whenever you try to slide in a new video card. Perfect for folks who want to be more productive despite using leased equipment that prohibits one from opening up the chassis and adding in/removing components.
With a multiple monitor setup, office drones can then multi-task by stretching large spreadsheets and documents across multiple displays. I personally feel that your productivity and efficiency will increase as you get to open multiple program windows without having them overlap one another, courtesy of the additional screen real estate. According to Miranda Su, executive vice president at IOGEAR, “Users need a simple and effective way to create a multi-monitor workstation to increase productivity. Our USB 2.0 External DVI Video Card gives them the additional screen space they need to work efficiently with the least complicated set-up.”
IOGEAR’s USB 2.0 External DVI Video Card has pretty limited compatibility though, as it works with just Windows XP and Vista operating systems. It comes with a recommended retail price of $149.99 and is available immediately from all major catalog and online resellers, as well as select retail outlets. Each purchase comes with a 3-year warranty.
