Two New DisplayLink USB Graphics Adapters

[Update: We’ve been able to lower the price on our UGA-165, and will be discontinuing the USB-VGA-165 and the UGA-125.]

The UGA-165 delivers resolutions up 1920×1080 / 1600×1200 over both analog (VGA) and digital (DVI) connections using DisplayLink’s most cost-effective mid-range DL-165 chip, now at a lower price.

We’re filling out our line of DisplayLink USB graphics adapters with two new products that offer even better pricing, using DisplayLink’s most cost-effective mid-range DL-165 chip.

1) Our new UGA-165 completes our USB to VGA/DVI/HDMI family. There are all identical products other than the DisplayLink chip inside the unit: UGA-2K-A (DL-195 chip), UGA-165 (DL-165 chip), and UGA-125 (DL-125 chip).

2) Our new USB-VGA-165 is our most aggressively priced product, while still being built on DisplayLink’s mid-range DL-165 chip. We pushed the price point down by supporting VGA connections only (no DVI or HDMI, and no extra converters needed in the box), and with simpler casing and packaging.

Now with this complete line, we’re covering the full line of DisplayLink chips.

If you’re a current owner of one of our other DisplayLink products, you’re going to like these new adapters — same drivers, same performance, same simple setup experience, and new lower price points for connecting even more monitors to your PC!

Here’s a table with more detail to compare the four adapters head-to-head.

      Hi Daniel – Thanks so much for the well written post on the benefits and challenges of multi-mon, and how getting there through USB graphics works.
