We tested it on an unimpressive Dell Latitude D520 Centrino Duo with 512 RAM and it easily handled five USB to DVI adapters driving 19- to 21-inch flat screens (including widescreens). We also used the auxiliary display port on the laptop’s docking station for a total of six simultaneous beautful displays, including the laptop’s built-in display.
The USB to DVI External Video Card can handle six displays at a time if you have enough USB ports and possibly more depending on your system.As excited as we were for the release of this model, we tested it right when they came in. Using two simultaneously, the unit performed with flying colors. The external video card itself is small and lightweight; about the size and weight of a deck of cards. It is grey, sleek,and unnoticeable when sitting behind your desk.
The USB to DVI/VGA card is completely Windows Vista compatible with the included driver CD for both mirroring and extending your desktop. It performs both mirroring and extended desktop with Windows 2000 SP4, XP 32-bit SP2, and Vista perfectly.
