Diamond BVUMD3 USB Display Adapter supports 1080p HD

Diamond BVUMD3 USB Display Adapter supports 1080p HD

DisplayLink adapters capable of outputting 1080p Full HD are relatively rare beasts - so far we've spotted a Lenovo model on the market, for a heady $129 - so Diamond Multimedia's $75 BVUMD3 USB Display Adapter Plus tickles us exactly where we want it to: in our wallets.  The compact device allows you to hook up a DVI or VGA monitor to a regular USB 2.0 port on your PC, notebook or netbook, and you can plug in up to six at any one time.

DoubleSight’s 7″ and 9″ low-cost USB sub-displays

DoubleSight’s 7″ and 9″ low-cost USB sub-displays

We've a soft-spot for USB-connecting mini LCD displays - they're a nifty way to get Photoshop toolbars, IM windows, Twitter apps and other windows off your main display but keep them readily visible - so we're glad to see more options hitting the market.  DoubleSight have three sub-displays to choose from, starting from the 7-inch DS-70U and then breaking into the hitherto unusual 9-inch segment with the DS-90U and DS-90UC.

Nanovision MIMO 710-S USB LCD display gets folding travel case/stand

Nanovision MIMO 710-S USB LCD display gets folding travel case/stand

Nanovision have updated their range of MIMO USB LCD sub-displays with a new travel-friendly model.  The Nanovision MIMO 710-S "Mobile Slider" keeps the same 800 x 480 resolution 7-inch LCD display from the existing range, but pairs it with a new folding, twisting clamshell stand that can be used to protect the display during transit.

That's handy, because these mini-displays perhaps make most sense when used to add a little more screen real-estate to a laptop.  Connecting via USB and using the DisplayLink virtual monitor system rather than a computer's own video card, the 710-S boasts 350 cd/m2 brightness and a 500:1 contrast ratio.

UMID M1 mBook spotted in all-black; new DisplayLink port replicator

UMID M1 mBook spotted in all-black; new DisplayLink port replicator

The UMID M1 mBook's keyboard prompted no small amount of discussion among MID-lovers, primarily as to whether it was of sufficient size for reasonable typing.  We even recorded our own typing video demo to get a better idea.  Simmering in the background, though, was a more aesthetic concern: UMID's decision to pair every case color with the same white keyboard.  Now, the company has seemingly listened to reason, and offered up an all-black version of the M1 mBook.

Samsung LapFit D190SU with DisplayLink Review

Samsung LapFit D190SU with DisplayLink Review

A few weeks ago, Samsung Korea launched a series of low profile external LCD monitors intended to serve as notebook or netbook companion displays.  Essentially, it's a same LCD display as in Samsung's current notebooks, but with adjustable height: when it stands, it's as tall as your laptop to ensure everything lines up with no offset.  However there's more technology gone into the LapFit than the design; it also comes equipped with Samsung's UbiSync technology aka the DisplayLink USB graphic chip embedded into the display, enabling plug-n-play monitor expansion via a simple USB connection. Last week SlashGear was offered an exclusive preview of the new breed of Samsung SyncMaster, a 19-inch LapFit dubbed the D190SU, and we took the bait.
