Hello, It looks like there are quite a lot of your products im interested in purchasing. I would like to tell you my setup and maybe you can tell me if this will work prior to me buying. Sorry if im overly detailed as I just don’t have good technical knowledge and not sure what information you require to answer my questions.
1.Im moving from a 6 monitor array desktop with 3 video cards to a gaming laptop as my workstation replacement with 1 video card. This one http://www.amazon.com/GE70-Pro-012-i7…
2.This laptop has support for 2 external monitors already, however I would like to try and configure it with your products to support 4 total monitors (maybe 6 someday but 4 for now).
Using existing ports on the laptop I think I got 2 external monitors covered.
Monitor 1 = VGA
Monitor 2 = HDMI
All my monitors are acer 22 inch with max resolution of 1680x1050 with both VGA and DVI ports but I plug in using DVI cables, they are 6 years old im not sure which version of DVI they are, 24+1 or something I think. While the laptop above is a gaming laptop with good power and graphics card I will not really use it for gaming.
Anyway can you tell me if this is a workable setup ( Please recommend other if this isn’t good)
I have 2 monitors covered already with existing vga and hdmi ports on the laptop so I’ll just focus on the next 2 monitors witch I can hopefully setup using your products.
1: Buy your 10 port USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Hub: http://www.amazon.com/Plugable-SuperS… The reason I choose this is because I don’t want to take up all my usb ports on my laptop. I’m getting the USB hub because I read in your comments that video throughput is better and will avoid lagging more if im using usb 3.0 to connect my video.
2: Buy (2) Plugable usb 3.0 hdmi/dvi video graphics adapters. (note im getting higher end one you offer with higher resolution support in case I get better monitors in the future) http://www.amazon.com/Plugable-Graphi…
Now with the above purchased I plug the 2 plugable vdeo graphic adapters into the USB 3.0 hub and then plug my monitors DVI cables into the graphic adapters and all these in turn all plug into 1 usb 3.0 port on my laptop and I’m humming along with 4 usable monitors.
Does this sound like a setup that will work?
Thank you for any help you can offer…
