Top 10 Reasons to Buy the Vid-2X

1. Totally hardware independent external multi-monitor solution

Connect directly to any single Thunderbolt, DisplayPort or DualLink-DVI output and get two Full HD monitor outputs. No case to open, no fears of invalidating your warranty.  Works on laptops and desktops.

2. No software or drivers to install, completely Operating System independent

Extremely simple; not even a driver to install!  Really just plug it in and immediately start to enjoy the benefits of multi-monitor

3. Breakthrough Traditional Workspace Limitations

Enables two Full HD (1920×1080) displays from one connector.  Double your workspace, work faster, get comfortable and stretch out a little – or duplicate your image on two monitors or projectors – great for presentations!

4. Works with new and most existing systems

Unleash the hidden power of Thunderbolt, DisplayPort and DualLink-DVI on new and old systems – no matter what graphics hardware is in your system.

5. Single logical screen

Enjoy movies, games, video editing and any office application displayed across two monitors with no impact on CPU load. Just choose an exciting new enhanced graphics resolution!

6. Workflow benefits

With a larger work area, users can simplify tasks, improve comfort, get an instant productivity boost, make fewer mistakes, improve task focus, and ease source movement.  “It not only improves productivity; the work is judged as easier to do.” (Source: University of Utah research.)

7. Natural and Intuitive

Unlike other technology that requires getting used to, adding a pair of equally sized monitors to display content across both is natural and intuitive.  Just take a few seconds to understand that the mouse travels from one display to another – and that’s it!

8. Affordable

At an MSRP of $179.00 Sapphire’s Vid-2X is about the price of a 24″ display.  For up to 50% productivity boost this represents a tremendous return on investment and can pay for itself in a few weeks.

9. Addictive

Give someone a second monitor, let them use it for a while, and see if you can convince them to give it up!  Think about your desk and how instinctively easy it is to spread documents, reminders, reports and other items.  Your screen, sometimes not much larger then a sheet of paper, is much more confining.  Adding a set of displays to a laptop or netbook means everything you need is right in front of you; instantly you’ll spend less time flipping through everything that’s open on your desktop hunting for what you want.

10. Advanced features

Integrated features support advanced uses and extended applications – several units can be combined to create arrays of displays, displays can be cloned (mirrored) for collaboration or presentations, and monitor bezels can be compensated for at the flick of a switch to ensure that large images look just right – all without any drivers or special software required.
