The Gadgeteer Reviews Our Plugable UGA-2K-A

The Gadgeteer has been doing product reviews since 1997, and they just wrote a review of the Plugable UGA-2K-A.

A couple interesting things covered:

  • The usefulness of multiple monitors – once you’ve used them, it’s hard to go back to the limits of one screen.
  • They show using the DVI-to-HDMI adapter included with the UGA-2K-A, to add a 42″ LCD TV as a third laptop monitor. Nice!

And they summarize the review with this:

It does exactly what it claims it’s going to do. If I had to register any kind of complaint, I’d say that this could be considered a “gateway drug”…because if I can rock three monitors, what’s to stop me from six or eight?

Exactly what we think, too. Of course, by that analogy, we’re dealers …

One quick note: the review mentions our old pricing of $72.99. Fortunately, we’ve been able to increase our volumes and lower our prices as a result, so the UGA-2K-A is now $69.95. And because this technology is most exciting when it’s not just one but several extra monitors on a single PC — we’re also offering a temporary promotion of $10 off for every two you purchase. All the details are shown on Amazon.

If you don’t have extra monitors around, something like the Acer X203H bd 20-Inch LCD Monitor at 20″ diagonal and 1650×1080 resolution, is a good mid-range companion to one of our adapters. But again, any VGA, DVI, or HDMI monitor will do.
