Mini USB Monitor – Expand Your Netbook

Netbooks are great portable PCs and I would switch from my full sized Fujitsu laptop to my Acer Netbook if it wasn’t for the limited monitor space.

I understand there are trade-offs for ultra portable Netbooks verse size, speed and performance.  But with this new Lilliput USB monitor for only $99 it’s really got me thinking.  A switch might be eminent.

So for just $99 you get a 7 inch display with resolution of 800 x 480 dpi.  The contrast ratio is nice at 400:1 and connects only through a USB port.

So with the combination of my Netbook [we have 7 at work] along with the USB mini monitor, I’m still packing less weight and space then my full blown laptop.

Since there are no drivers needed for the Mac or PC it’s truly plug-n-play and ready to work with any PC, work or home.

So for $99 it’s worth a shot.  What do you think?

USB Powered Monitor By Samsung

GetUSB has reported on monitors which connect via USB, but now Samsung has fine tuned this product to include connection AND power to be exclusively through USB.  The Korean electronics giant made this possible by including two USB connections to the host so that one transmits data and some power and the 2nd USB connection is designated to power only.  We’ve seen this before in USB hard drives, so it’s nothing new.

In addition, Samsung says that this was made possible by improving the transmittance of the panel and the luminance efficiency of the back-light used in the monitor, which ultimately reduced the power consumption to as low as 6.3-watts.

The new USB monitor by Samsung has a shorter life span than a traditional monitor [30,000 verse 50,000] but hey, it’s just growing pains and, as with everything, expect it to get better.

Truly First USB Monitor For Laptops

Typically we see a USB monitor in the form of a screen with some sort of VGA converter with a USB port, like the one from USB Fever, but today we see a different version.  Samsung has introduced a monitor which runs by simply plugging in the USB cable to any laptop.  There is no adapter or converter required.

The conversion from an analog signal to digital signal is made within the monitor itself, thus eliminating the need for external VGA converter.

The Samsung model reports an impressive 30,000:1 contrast with speedy 5ms response time.

Samsung did not comment on availability within the states or the pricing, but it’s nice to see the trend of external monitors go the route of USB.  After all, what other connectivity is as simple and convenient?

USB Powered Mini Monitor from D-Link

usb monitor d-linkD-Link introduced a sweet little 7 inch LCD display powered by USB.  The SideStage, which I think is a great name, is a 800×400 resolution monitor which extends your primary screen.  It’s great to stream stock quotes, or run IM applications or other small utilities you don’t want to use on the main monitor.  Yet not the first one we’ve seen.
The SideStage would also be ideal for Photoshop users and such who want to move the toolbar out of the main screen.

The SideStage from D-Link is expected to sell for about $100, although no price point has yet been announced.  The other piece of info we didn’t get is launch date.  Set to be summer time, which isn’t soon enough.

According to D-Link’s representative Les Goldberg, the SideStage is compatible with virtually all CRT and flat-panel monitors, has standard and wide-screen aspect ratios, 32-bit True Color depth for high-quality images, and ultra-low power consumption, which is consistent with the D-Link Green initiative.
