Acer 22-inch USB monitor

Acer, in conjunction with DisplayLink, announced on Friday the availability of a new USB computer LCD monitor which, despite the dependence on the CPU rather than a graphics chipset, still supports Windows Vista's Aero Glass interface as well as other 3D functions. The 22-inch B223 display features a 1680x1050 resolution and DisplayLink's DL-160 network display chip that lest users connect up to six of the monitors to a single PC or notebook via their standard USB 2.0 ports.

Thanks to the DisplayLink plug-and-play technology, users can quickly connect the screen without having to install drivers without having to install drivers in Windows; DisplayLink offers separate Mac drivers for USB monitors but hasn't said whether the B223 is supported. The B223 offers 32-bit, true-color graphics and 5ms response times. The monitor, along with a keyboard and mouse, can be added to notebooks via a single USB cable, creating a mobile workstation. The B223 has height, rotation and swivel adjustments, allowing users to set it up to their liking.

The Acer B223 is now available now in Europe, priced at the equivalent of about $430.
