This review is from: Diamond BVU195 USB Display Adapter (DVI and VGA with included DVI to VGA adapter)
Pros: -Comes with HDMI converter also (not pictured).
-Works with any computer I've thrown at it (even macbook air)
Cons: -Price I guess? I think there's cheaper, but I've seen people go cheaper on a USB-to-video solution before and have nothing but problems.
Other Thoughts: This might be the first review I've ever left on NewEgg, but always look to them for input before buying anything around here... so take that as a sign as to how much I love this thing. I was looking for a way to add another monitor to my laptop, and this thing worked perfectly. Windows 7 finds the correct drivers, and installs them without issue. Since it's USB, I've also used it to power additional monitors for my desktop, and macbook air, in a pinch. The install for OS/X isn't as straightforward, but the Mac drivers can easily be found in the DisplayLink website.
Anyway, it comes with DVI built in, and adapters for Analog VGA as well as HDMI... all work perfectly. The HDMI was a pleasant surprise since it isn't pictured.
Handles decent resolutions for my 22" monitors... but haven't tested it on anything bigger. Love this thing... if you're looking for usb-to-vga... get it now!
This review is from: NETGEAR 8 Port Gigabit Business-Class Desktop Switch - Lifetime Warranty (GS108)
Pros: Great switch.
Other Thoughts: I love the switch... cannot complain one ounce about it. I bought 3 of them. Sent in for the rebates, and just yesterday received a letter from NetGear saying the date of the purchase was invalid. Completely impossible, it was within the dates specified on the form, and I promptly mailed in the form/UPC's when I got the switches. So BE WARY of NETGEAR's REBATE OFFER!READ FULL REVIEW
