Multiple Displays on your Mac or PC using USB

evga_smallThe EVGA Device is great for adding multiple monitors quickly to any PC or Mac. This little device installs in minutes and it allows you to extend your display without having to add multiple video cards. One of the great things you can do with EVGA is you can buy up to 6 of these boxes and connect them to a hub for example, then attach monitors to all the boxes.

Once you have done that then you can grab the cable from the USB hub and connect it to your computer or mac and now you have extended your desktop to 6 screens. Pretty cool if you need multiple applications running on a bunch of screens. In the video below I will show you how to connect this on the PC and the Mac. Below are also links to download the software, where I bought the device and their homepage.

 

Where to Buy: Amazon $42.12: http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-100-U2-UV12-A1-Supporting-1400×1050-Resolution/dp/B001AZI4FC/ref=pd_bbs_sr_2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1238986639&sr=8-2

    Thanks for the video! I have a new IMAC 27″. From my old PC, I have two HP w2408 monitors. I would like to connect both monitors to the IMAC. Currently have one connected thru the mini display port with a DVI adaptor. Can I use the EVGA plus for the additional connection? If so, do I need the 16 or 19 for extended displays? The HPs are 1920 x1200 and the apple Imac is 2560 x1400,

    Is their extended wall paper that will cover all three screens as a single picture?
    Thanks,
    Joe
