Acer, in conjunction with DisplayLink, announced the availability of a new USB computer LCD monitor which still supports Windows Vista’s Aero Glass interface as well as other 3D functions. Acer’s latest B223 USB LCD monitor comes with the following features.
22″ LCD display, 1,680 x 1,050 resolution, DisplayLink DL-160 network display chip, USB 2.0 connectivity, 5ms response time, 32-bit, true-color graphics. The B223′s height, rotation and swivel angles can be adjusted for your optimal viewing comfort. It’s already available in Europe, retailing for about $430.
Thanks to the DisplayLink plug-and-play technology, you can quickly connect the screen without having to install drivers in Windows; DisplayLink offers separate Mac drivers for USB monitors but hasn’t said whether the B223 is supported.
