Buffalo 7-inch aux display

Japan's Buffalo on Wednesday introduced its FTD-W71 USB secondary display which connects to users Windows (Vista, XP or 2000) PCs via a USB 2.0 connection to add a 7-inch, 800x480 display to show whatever won't fit on the main screen. The auxiliary screen sports 300cd/m2 brightness rating and a 500:1 contrast ratio. The screen can be rotated into a portrait orientation on its stand, or attached to standard camera tripods.

It sports a 120-degree horizontal viewing angle, or 140-degree vertical angle. While users make the video connection via a USB port and some systems are able to power the screen via USB as well, Buffalo urges users to power the screen with the included AC adapter. Up to six of the displays can be hooked up to one system, though the system requirements grow to a 1.6GHz Core Duo chip and at least 1GB of RAM when using Windows XP or 2000 and 1.5GB for Vista.

The FTD-W71 will be out in late January in Japan only, at least for the time being, and no pricing information has been announced. [via Akihabara]
