Multiple Screens

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a cost effective way to run at least 4 extra screens off a windows 8.0 laptop.  I presume I need at least a USB 3.0 hub and appropriate cables.  Suggestions as to high quality products and best sources to accomplish this.  Also any alternate strategy suggestions.  Thanks, in advance.

Wow, I'm glad I saw this. I'm brand new to the forums here (12 hours ago) and I thought was doing something wrong with the filters when I was reading a thread and there was no post later than 2012.

Thanks for the interest. I would like to be able to view at least one open window per screen. i.e. word processing on one, spreadsheet on another, web search on a third, etc.

Thanks, again.

 

To display different content on multiple monitors you'll need a video card that supports multiple displays, perhaps something like the card below that outputs to 4 different displays:

Or, perhaps install a second video card that has 2 video outputs (assuming your current video card supports 2 outputs).
