We now have two great ways to connect high-end monitors via a computer’s USB 3.0 port, without the hassle of adding a suitable internal graphics card.
The LINDY USB to 4K DisplayPort Adapter enables users to connect a 4K Ultra HD monitor by simply installing the driver and connecting the adapter to the computer using the supplied USB 3.0 Type A to Micro-B cable. Once installed the 4K monitor can be connected to the adapter using a normal DisplayPort cable. The adapter supports 4K resolutions up to 3840 x 2160 @30Hz and includes the ability to transfer audio from the computer to the monitor.
The LINDY USB 3.0 to HDMI Adapter allows users to display Full HD 1080p video and graphics on their TV, monitor or projector via their computer’s USB 3.0 SuperSpeed port. Connected in a similar fashion as the 4K DisplayPort Adapter above, the converter supports resolutions up to 1920×1200, including 1080p. This latest adapter is a newer version of a previous model and is now available at a lower cost.
“While installing an internal graphics card into a computer is a relatively simple process, it’s not something everybody feels confident in doing, particularly when it’s just to connect a monitor temporarily,” says Andrew Ingram, Product Manager of LINDY Electronics. “Our new adapters allow users to connect the very latest high resolution monitors quickly and easily. They are ideal for laptop users that often challenged with different connection options everywhere they go, as well home users who just want to add another screen to their set-up.”
Both the LINDY adapters allow monitors to be used for primary, mirrored or extended desktop. They are bus powered and therefore require no addition power, have a compact design making them east to carry and store and are guaranteed for 2 years.
