Smart USB Monitor
DoubleSight Displays has revealed a new line of display screens, the Smart USB Monitor. Available in either 7-inch, 9-inch, or 9-inch webcam versions, each LCD monitor is designed to work with any desktop or notebook with a USB port and up to as many as six of the displays on one computer. Like most USB displays, it requires no video chipset and works both in landscape and portrait modes. Most apps will work properly, including some Internet and offline videos.
The 7-inch monitor has a maximum screen resolution of 800x480, while the 9-inch versions support 1024x600. All versions muster a 30ms pixel response time and are compatible with both Mac OS X and Windows PCs. All three can be purchased both through resellers or the company's online store, and are priced at $120 for the 7-inch model, $140 for the 9-inch, or $160 for the 9-inch with webcam.
