This little adapter could be exactly what you are looking for at just the right price. Let’s get a closer look:

Trendnet Overview (D.I.Y Workstation Setup):

 

Conclusion:

I have seen a lot of gadgets in my time and few of them were actually something that I could use in a practical manner on a daily basis. The TRENDNET USB to DVI/VGA Adapter is by no means one of the gadgets that will be tossed into my mounting gadget graveyard. This is one of the more ideal options to buying another workstation card I have seen and I must say it is very practical for those not wanting to spend huge money for more desktop real estate.

Would I recommend this product? Yes, although I have listed workstation in this review this little products has a multitude of uses including day trading amongst many others. I think if you picture the potential uses of this card and find yourself in several of the scenarios you imaging than the TRENDNET USB to DVI/VGA Adapter should be on your next shopping list.

Pros:

  • Price
  • Simple
  • Compact
  • Quality Design (not a cheap knock off)

Cons:

  • Maxes out at 1600 resolution
