    USB VGA adaptors... any good?

    I've been speccing up new admin desktop PCs recently and pretty much decided on Lenovo M58's... probably the uSFF cases but just realised something yesterday evening... dual monitors!

    We have a lot of staff using them, there's no space in the uSFF case for a card so the only option would be something like this...

    StarTech.com USB to VGA Multi Monitor External Video Adapter Graphics adapter - 16 MB

    Usually only used to put email \ speadsheets on a 2nd screen so should be OK I'd guess?

    We've got a couple of the Kensington USB-DVI/VGA adaptors, and they work really well. Much easier than having to install a second vga card, and easier if they change computers.

    Hi gshaw

    We supply many customers with Lenovo desktops and can offer superb supported pricing due to the relationship we have with Lenovo

    Please get in touch if you require a comaparitive quotation. I can also point you in the direction of a few EduGeekers that have taken large quantities of Lenovo desktops from WStore, all who are very happy customers

    Many thanks
