Flat Panel Display DisplayLink's USB-to-DVI Adapter - First Look

Using monitors via USB: Pipe dream or reality?

Last year, Samsung released a 19" LCD monitor capable of being hooked up via a simple USB connection. To work its magic, the display uses an embedded video chip made by a company called DisplayLink that works like a sort of self-contained graphics processor. That's neat, but what if you already have a spare monitor you'd like to use via USB? Is there a cheaper alternative to coughing up the $300 or so for a USB display? As it turns out, yes there is. DisplayLink's video chip is also available in standalone USB-to-DVI adapters, which allow one to connect any monitor with a resolution up to 1600 x 1200 via USB.

The prospect connecting pretty much any display without an extra monitor port has obvious appeal, especially for laptops. USB only has a fraction of the bandwidth supported by the DVI interface, but DisplayLink nonetheless claims on its website that it's fast enough to allow "flawless DVD playback" and to enhance one's gaming experience in "most games." I was curious to put these claims to the test, so I got in touch with DisplayLink and the company graciously offered to send me a sample USB-to-DVI adapter.
