Dual Screen driver for surface Pro 3


#1

I have two Philips 225PL2EB screens that I would like to drive from my Surface Pro 3 which has one USB 3 port and a mini display port. The screens have VGA (Analogue) and DVI-D (digital, HDCP) ports. Optimum screen resolution is 1680 x 1050 @ 60 Hz. What product do you suggest I purchase and how would the producrt connect to the Surface Pro 3.
Thanks

Hi Peter,

Thanks for posting. I’d be happy to answer your question.

A great pairing for your Surface is our UD-3900 docking station (http://plugable.com/products/ud-3900) which allows you to add to two additional monitors to your system via a single USB 3.0 cable.

Thanks for letting me know the exact model of you monitor! As that unit has both DVI and VGA inputs in order to use them both with the dock you will need to also purchase separately an inexpensive HDMI to DVI cable. This will allow you to connect one monitor to the dock via its DVI output, and the other via the HDMI output of the dock using the additional cable. We don’t make a cable like that ourselves, but many of our customers have reported success with this cable --> http://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matters%C…

Let us know if you have any additional questions.

Thank you,

Bob
