Kensington Making Multiple Monitors Easier

For those of you who don't know, I'm a huge fan of multiple monitors. I use them in all aspects of my computing life. Not only does a multiple monitor setup help me as a practice and educate my patients, it also helps my productivity when I'm at my desk at the office or at home.

Studies have shown that using more than one monitor increases work efficiency by about 20% so it's a time saver in a really big way.

However, one of the drawbacks has always been the expense of setting the system up. Using a laptop is simple, as most laptops have an extra monitor connection built-in so that they can connect to a projector. For a desktop though, this usually means either replacing the existing video card with a dual output card or adding a second video card. If you aren't an experienced geek, this can be daunting.

Now thanks to Kensington you can setup multiple monitors with a single piece of external hardware that connects via a USB port. The device will support up to 6 monitors! That might be even more than I would need.

Arrival date is sometime in the second quarter and the price? $99!!!
