Plugable Technologies Announces Two New USB Display and Docking Solutions

p4

USB graphics adapters aren’t very new, they’ve been around for a bit, I myself own a couple of them, though I don’t use them. I do own a small 7” USB monitor that I do use often, it’s hooked up to my HTPC as a companion to my 47” HDTV. The point here is that most of these USB devices are rather expensive, Plugable though has just introduced some new products using the DisplayLink technology that are inexpensive. Two of these products sell for $50 and $60 bringing the price down a bit so the average consumer can afford them. They’ve also introduced a third product that is a docking station complete with USB hub, audio and ethernet along with the DisplayLink connections.

The UGA-125 enables multiple VGA, DVI, or HDMI monitors or projectors to be added to any system via USB 2.0 (one extra display supported per adapter). Each display can extend the desktop or mirror other displays. The UGA-125 is great for multi-taskers who want to see and work with several applications or documents at once, including programmers, designers, writers, office managers, day traders, customer service and sales personnel, etc.

The second product in the UGA-125 family, the UGA-125-HUB, also includes a matching bus-powered 4-port USB 2.0 hub. This provides a simple solution for quickly docking any laptop to an extra display, keyboard, and mouse. Unlike proprietary docking stations, the simple hub solution works with any brand of computer, using standard USB 2.0 connectivity and components. Note that docking stations attached over USB will not charge the laptop they’re connected to.

Both use the DisplayLink DL-125 chip, capable of modes up to 1440×900 (widescreen) or 1280×1024 (standard) on higher-resolution monitors.
