How many monitors is too many?
A lot of people have let notebooks take the place of their regular, desktop PCs. If you need a full size keyboard or monitor, you can always add externals for when you're at home. However, those of us who like to work on more than one monitor are kind of stuck as the majority of laptops only have one VGA port.
A new offering from Samsung expected to hit next year could be the answer all of us multi-monitor enthusiasts are looking for. We've seen USB displays before but never one as big as this. Samsung is displaying 18.5-inches of USB-only LCD (1,366x768, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 250 cd/m² maximum brightness and LED backlit illumination) at Computex and we're suitably impressed. Especially with the fact that power consumption measures in at just 6.5W.
Of course, how many of these you use depends on how many USB ports you have and one of these displays will take up two right off the bat. However, if the shortage of ports is your only problem, there's no shortage of USB hubs and adapters on the market. No word on price yet but we should know more when the 2011 release date draws a little bit closer.
