USB Monitor From Samsung Liberates Macbook Users From Apple’S Stupid Ports &Amp; Adapters

by Lambert Varias

Samsung unveiled the LD220 USB monitor at the recent World IT Show in Korea. I’m pretty sure that the monitor has its own power supply, but still, you won’t have to worry about video cards or adapters with this bad boy thanks to its USB DisplayLink connection.

AVING didn’t mention the size of LD220’s screen, but judging from the pictures I’d say it’s about 22″. Or am I mistaken?

Would it be possible to have a multi-monitor setup using a USB hub and a bunch of LD220’s? If so, that would be dead easy to do. God bless (South) Korea.

    I like the way that you think. (slaving the monitors) Too cool

      I’ve played with DisplayLink on smaller monitors, and it seems serviceable. I wonder how well most computers can keep up with pushing all those pixels out over USB 2.0 at higher resolutions and framerates.
