After writing an article about batteries, I thought it’d be great to write something about displays/screens that are available for electronic projects — especially small ones before going into detail on each of them at a later article.
Looks like USB enabled monitors are slowly becoming mainstream as Samsung announces three LCD monitors (Samsung SyncMaster 2243QW, LD220 and LD190X) that are all equipped to be connected via the USB port of your computer. This makes it very appealing since it allows you to connect several of these monitors to your computer. Studies have shown that having several monitors in the workplace increases productivity. Who cares about the study, I want three monitors attached to my computer, period. 🙂
I’m thinking of buying an LCD display that has DisplayLink support to be able to connect and use multiple display screens on a single computer via USB. I tried searching via Google but couldn’t seem to find any information. I was wondering if anyone might know if there is support for DisplayLink under Ubuntu Linux.
If you know of any information, pls. post a comment here. Thanks.
