USB to VGA MONITORS!!!
There is a device on the market for £50.00. that boasts to be able to allow you to add extra monitors using USB ports - one device and monitor per port - up to six monitors!!
The company is 'Media Atlantic' based in the UK. www.mediaatlantic.com
I have tried to contact them for more info, but no luck so far.
They say no graphics card required, just USB!!
I wonder if these devices will run an outside view?
Any thoughts anyone?

I"ve heard performance is poor, however I haven't ever seen one in action.

Tony, I've also heard these give poor performance. The USB speed is much less than the VGA capability direct from your video card.
Could be wrong though, so I'd be interested to hear from someone using it.

hmm this sounds interesting however i would prefer the TH2GO you can get 3 monitors and if you work it our 3 of these is more expensive than TH2GO's are going for on ebay etc. at the moment.Geremy Britton

Yes, I use one for my EICAS and standbys and it seems to work fine- havent tried it for outside views yet though but i'll do some experiments and let you all know!

I also found some LG 22" TFT monitors USB in the same concept, they donn't need VGA, but...... i didn't manage to find the analysis and performance specifications.
