Accell UltraAV DisplayPort to DVI Multi-Monitor Adapter Review

I’m a multi-display guy and I have been for a long time. It is very hard for me to work with just one display. I really like to have my work on one screen and other things like instant messenger, iTunes, and Twitter on the other screen. This is pretty easy to do when you have a desktop system, but what about a laptop. Many people are moving away from desktops and going to a laptop as their main system. I would love to do the same, but I cannot work on a small laptop screen. Well Accell has just the thing for me the UltraAV DisplayPort to DVI Multi-Monitor adapter. This little device will allow you to enjoy multiple monitors from a single DisplayPort output, let’s take a look…

About 10 years of computer experience. Been messing around with electronics since I was 5, got into computers when I was in highschool, been modding them ever since then. Very interested in how things work and their design.

    One major con you seemed to miss: Terrible resolution support. Up to 1024 vertical? That pretty much means no widescreen monitors worth anything. To be worth anything as far as I'm concerned it needs to at least be able to handle 1050 pixels and preferably 1200, plus widescreen resolutions. The Matrox Dual/TripleHead2Go boxes have a similar limitation, but almost every monitor on the market today has a resolution higher than 1280×1024 and running a LCD at a non-native resolution just looks bad so it's unacceptable to have such a low limit.

  • I’m using the unit with two 1600×1200 monitors without any problems.

    The only use I could have for this is if I were playing a PC game with three accounts. One for the leech (that would be on a separate monitor) then the healer and damage dealer on the main monitor for switching between the two. Yes I tend to game like that.

    TaylorMade is an undisputed industry leader in golf equipment, offering a complete product line with innovative design and technology-based product for golfers of all skill levels. It has produced the Burner SuperFast 2.0 Driver. I have used the driver. I can gain more distance. So the Burner SuperFast 2.0 Driver will give you more yards. The Burner is even longer then that club and the mishits are more forgiving. The light club shaft has enabled me to generate more club head speed and hit the ball further and more accurately. My average drive went from about 250 with the FTIZ to about 270 with the Burner. I also love the White Head at address. Great Club.
