DisplayLink touts Monitor2Go

  • DisplayLink and Mobile Monitor Technologies have debuted a 15.4-inch portable display. Aptly dubbed Monitor2Go, the $280 display will be showcased this week at CES 2011 in Las Vegas.

    DisplayLink spokesperson Kim Stowe told TG Daily that Monitor2Go is a  high-quality, full-size display that can be used with virtually any notebook or desktop PC.

    "Most multi-monitor fans are frustrated when they have to leave their desktop set-up behind and are limited to one screen while traveling," explained Stowe.

    "But Monitor2Go is a USB-connected portable display that is the same size as some of the most popular notebooks on the market."

    According to Stowe, the mobile display is packaged with a built-in stand that allows the screen to sit at eye level - like a notebook display - and to be positioned in either portrait or landscape mode. 

The device is also designed for hanging.

    And, up to six screens can be daisy-chained off a host computer's single USB port to create an instant video wall.

    Additional specs include:

    • Weight - four pounds.
    • LED-backlit.
    • Resolution - 1280x800.
    • Supported operating systems - Windows and OS X. [[DisplayLink]]
