Kensington USB Display

Kensington on Tuesday brought the first devices for the Mac to support a display connection over USB. A new version of the sd200v Notebook Docking Station borrows technology from DisplayLink that allows Mac OS X systems to connect not just ordinary peripherals but also video output across a single USB connection: DVI and VGA displays, audio, and as many as five USB add-ons attach through a single cable. The technology is fast enough to drive resolutions up to 1440x1024, even with movies and other taxing video connections, Kingston says. The station may be ideal for turning the MacBook Air into a full desktop replacement and allows the Mac mini to use more than one monitor at the same time, according to the company.

The sd200v works with any Intel-based Mac as well as Windows PCs and ships now for $130. For users who just need the video connection, Kensington has also released the Dual Video Adapter which also connects through USB and allows one DVI and one VGA monitor to connect to a single Mac or PC at the same time. It ships April 1st for $100.
