Mini Monitor Needs Only USB

By Evan Ackerman

This is a little monitor. A tiny monitor, really. It measures 77mm x 127mm x 17mm, with an LED backlit 4.3 inch WVGA (800 x 480) display. It comes with a little kickstand, and is designed to be used in conjunction with your primary monitor. It’s not specifically a SideShow device (like this), but it kinda acts like one, providing a handy space to stick chat windows or widgets or whatever. The real kicker, though, is that it interfaces via USB and it’s entirely USB bus powered. No inconvenient additional power cords, just plug it into a USB port and it’s ready to go. And, um, it costs about $200.

Yes, it’s really freakin’ expensive, but my best (and only) guess is that you’re paying for the fact that it’s small and bus powered. I hate power cords so much that I’d just about be willing to pay this ludicrous price and have the option to attach a secondary monitor to my laptop (or even to one of these) without having to worry about an outlet.

    Even better than this and with alot of functionality after you disconnect from the pc use this: http://jjs.at/software/pspdisp.html with any psp. So if you already have one and a usb cable this will save you some money. Now if you don't have a psp go get one for the same price as this and then goto that site and install everything and you will be good to go.

    $200 for a rear view mirror for your notebook might be expensive, but it's a good entry price for the millions with PDA type cell phones that need more display real estate for maps and browsers. But if it can't be viewed on a dashboard, the value drops dratically.
