Diamond Multimedia BVU165 USB Display Adapters

Most laptops and many tablets have HDMI outputs, or some other type of connector that allows them to use a monitor or TV like a regular PC, even though they already have their own screens.

Some don't, however, or don't have the type of connector that the available display does. To make it easier to link things together in such instances, Diamond Media has introduced a DisplayLink certified, high performance memory adapter. Supported by both PC and Macintosh devices from Apple, it is composed of two adapters, for now. We imagine that more will come out over time, though there aren't that many video interfaces, so the final number of BVU Series connectors won't be that high. Anyway, the two adapters that do already exist are called BVU165 and BVU165LT. The former is a USB to DVI adapter, which is USB powered (of course). More than a converter, it is a memory adapter that supposedly substitutes for an internal graphics card.

Diamond media made it a point of specifying, in the press release, that the adapter consumes 80% less energy than an internal graphics card. With a starting price of $49.99 / 38 – 49.99 Euro, it should already be selling through Amazon, Best Buy, Fry's, Staples, and other authorized resellers. It includes HDMI and VGA adapters, which add further compatibility, which is always a good thing. As for the BVU165LT, it is basically the BVU165 without the VGA and HDMI adapters (LT stands for “Light”). The price, in this case, is $39.99 / 30.64-39.99 Euro. It is possible to combine multiple BVU165 for up to six-monitor display setups, with resolutions of 1600 x 1200 pixels or 1920 x 1080 pixels. Each display will need a separately bought adapter though.
