ive ordered 3 things from in the last 4 months all of which were cancelled,pointless unless u are the lucky first 10
#2
Good post/price. Thankyou.

How do you think games would run on this? Would they work ok as it's going through usb and not the primary monitor one would presume.
#3
depends on the space you have and what you want to use it for - my main screen is a 20" 2007wfp, i'll use this to watch tvcatchup while surfing the web

Benjimoron - im guessing you just drag the app to the secondary screen and play as if it were any other monitor.

Thanks, but I'm not sure that usb will take the bandwidth unless you play at 640x480 or something?

Also not sure about dragging games, would work with solitaire but not sure about real games. Will keep looking for the ultimate solution!!

True but ideal for anyone editing video as an extra monitor.

+1 - ideal monitor for the toolbars on photoshop

Displaylink drivers will work with OSX on this monitor even though it's not officially mentioned http://www.displaylink.com/support/downloads.php

Games won't be playable unless they're very basic, USB 2.0 only has enough bandwidth to completely refresh an 800x480 screen about 12 times a second. I don't know if they've fixed it now but the couple of USB monitors I've used in the past couldn't cope with anything but basic desktop use due to driver problems, no 3D games and no video.

Im guessing it should be fine, i can watch a 720p/1080p video off my flash drive over usb2 no probs. Will confirm when i get this screen.

There's probably a difference between the amount of compressed data from a usb stick to the amount of data needed to drive a screen in uncompressed format.

Yup, spot on. Compressed HD video doesn't stress a USB link at all. HD video runs from 1.2MB/sec (broadcast HD like BBC HD) to 5MB/sec for Blu-ray discs. USB can cope with that no problem. The uncompressed video that gets sent to the screen after decoding is a completely different story. Uncompressed 720p at 50Hz needs around 150MB/sec of bandwidth to play back smoothly, far more than USB 2.0 can cope with.

In theory there's a way around this: if the drivers for the USB screen tell Windows they can do HD decoding in hardware then they can accept the compressed video and send it over the USB link to the screen, which uncompressed it using a decoder chip. But I don't think any USB screens actually do this because it would raise the price of the screen a fair bit and the driver code required isn't trivial to say the least.

My point was video at 800*480 should play fine over usb2 since usb2 can transfer compressed hd video with no issues.
