[MyDigitalLife]ViBook USB to DVI Adapter for Multiple Screens for Mac and Windows PC

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Previously we mentioned about USB to DVI Adapter for Multiple High Resolution Display from Sewell, now there is a similar product being released by Villagetronic targeted for PC users that doesn’t like to use conventional display output. Named as ViBook, it is a tiny yet powerful USB graphics solution that can connect any LCD monitor to your USB ports conveniently.


Amazingly, it can support up to maximum of 1680 X 1050 wide screen resolution without any technical limitation. As similar to Sewell product, there is a way to connect to as many as 6 different displays, with condition that you get six ViBook with each DVI port connect to one display (maximum of 22-inch display). Another major advantage is this new product is designed to be small enough to be mounted behind any kind of LCD monitor’s panel so that you can have a neat working environment in space constraint office space.

The new solution is compatible with both Mac and Windows PC systems, and priced at only $130, it is quite an affordable solution especially for those users that need multiple panoramic views for more effective work.

Isn't the eVGA USB --> DVI device the same thing? And the eVGA is only $70 (at least it was at fry's last time I checked, and that's BEFORE a $20 mail-in rebate).

Pretty cool, although I don't think it supports Apple though, at least not according to Newegg.

I did a little research a few days ago when I saw it in a Fry's ad with the mail-in rebate. According to what I read, the device isn't officially supported by eVGA, but the maker of the chip inside the eVGA device has a driver to get it to work with OSX.

The UV16 is the high end model supporting a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (1680 x 1050 widescreen) while the low model UV12 tops at 1280 x 1024 (1440 x 900 widescreen). Like all other DisplayLink products, the UV12 & UV16 support Vista's Aero 3D and Apple Leopard.

I've been using the EVGA UV16 Plus USB-to-DVI adapter for about a week now, to successfully drive a second monitor on my Mac Mini. I use the Displaylink Mac beta driver (latest update Sept. 5 2008)
They have a tough time supporting things like flash video on 16x10 and 12x10 resolutions, I hear.
