Getting the most of HD content on your computer means having a HD monitor — hard concept to grasp, I know. However, with all of those extra pixels often comes a fairly high pricetag. Not to mention, powering all of those pixels, especially those demanding top performance from their computer hardware know that the whole shebang can be quite costly. For now, going multi-monitor means spending excess sums of cash on grossly overpriced cables just to connect a monitor(s) to your computer. Their’s an easier way: DisplayLink.

DisplayLink is an evolving technology that allows you to pair up multiple monitors to your computer with via USB alone, drastically reducing the amount of money you spend on cords and adapters as well as giving your meager one display setup an instant and easy boost to 2 or more.

So far, some have voiced concerns over bandwidth limitations with USB 2.0 when driving HD and ultra HD monitors in higher numbers, saying that USB 2.0 can’t even keep up. Thankfully the advent of USB 3.0 — which should finally start seeing widespread adoption in 2010 — will make the move away from proprietary or more “closed” formats such as DVI, HDMI, etc. a thing of the past.

Coupled with the fact that USB 3.0 will gain some form of following in 2010 as well as DisplayLink enjoying equal opportunities, USB 3.0/DisplayLink displays can be expected *fingers crossed* to drop just in time for the 2010 holiday season. I for one can’t wait.

How many monitors will you tack on to your setup with DisplayLink?
