We’re happy to announce that we’ve been able to lower the everyday price of the Plugable UGA-165 USB 2.0 graphics adapter by $5 to $49.95. This price drop is made possible thanks to our loyal customers. Because of your growing demand for our products, we were able to manufacture a larger lot of UGA-165s (http://plugable.com/products/uga-165) at a lower cost than in the past, so we’re passing our increased savings on to you.
If you’re considering a USB graphics adapter to add another monitor to your system, the UGA-165 is a powerful product that works on Windows and Mac OS X with VGA, DVI, and HDMI monitors at resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 or 1600 x 1200 (widescreen). Its DisplayLink DL-165 chipset is nearly identical to the DL-195 chipset in the UGA-2K-A (http://pugable.com/products/uga-2k-a) except that the UGA-2K-A can support resolutions up to 2048×1152 or 1920×1200 (widescreen).
Unless you have a display on which the optimal resolution is in the UGA-2K-A’s higher range, save some money and go with the UGA-165. You won’t sacrifice any other functionality. Both adapters use the same DisplayLink driver (http://plugable.com/products/drivers/displaylink). You can use up to six UGA-165s simultaneously on a Windows PC or up to four on a Mac. And you get the same support from Plugable to ensure your success with either product.
If you have questions on the UGA-165, post them below, and we’ll answer them as quickly as we can. Thanks again for being a great Plugable customer.
