UD-3900 vs graphics adaptors


#1

I have a Dell Inspiron 2330 all-in-one bought in 2013 and want to add three monitors to it. Is it best to buy a UD-3900 dual display and one USB 3.0 graphics adaptor…or just buy three USB 3.0 graphics adaptor?

Hello Gregg,

To give you better/tailored advice, can you please briefly mention what you would be using the additional three monitors for? Can you also please list the CPU make and model number as well as your graphics chipset/GPU?

I will use the monitors to prepare tax returns in a paperless environment…so it is financial productivity related and not gaming. Here are the specs…I have upgraded to Windows 10.

Hi Gregg,

Thank you sharing. In theory, if all drivers are up to date, the DisplayLink driver should be compatible with your system (here is way of double checking -> http://support.displaylink.com/knowle…) and should be able to handle the additional devices.

I personally would use display adapters since you already have all your cables connected to the all-in-one (docking station would seem redundant), but I will leave the decision up to you (http://plugable.com/products).
