Lenovo USB 3.0 to DVI/VGA Monitor Adapter - Overview

Features and specifications

USB is Ubiquitous. The Lenovo USB 3.0 to DVI/VGA Monitor Adapter (0B47072) provides a quick and easy way to attach an analog or digital monitor to a ThinkPad or ThinkCentre USB port, helping to increase productivity through the use of multiple monitors.

The Lenovo USB 3.0 to DVI/VGA Monitor Adapter is ideal for increasing the efficiency of everyday tasks. View and extend spreadsheets across multiple monitors, or view financial charts simultaneously. Using multiple USB 3.0 to DVI/VGA Monitor Adapters reduces overlapping of windows when multitasking is required, and increases overall user experience and productivity.

Up to six monitors can be connected using up to six USB 3.0 to DVI/VGA Monitor adapters when connected to ThinkPad systems. Adapters coexist with existing system monitor ports and installed graphics cards.

Each adapter is uniquely configured, using a setup wizard, for:

  • Display mode: Span (one large desktop), mirrored (clone mode) or
  • extended desktop (stretch mode)
  • Screen resolution: Up to 2048x1152
  • Screen orientation: 0, 90, 180, or 270 degrees
  • Monitor placement: Extend monitor to right, left, above, or below

Windows Display Properties setup menu allows users to set resolution and the position location of each USB 3.0 to DVI/VGA Monitor Adapter along with the systems graphics displays.

The USB3.0 to DVI Monitor Adapter is lightweight and is easy to carry. A projector can quickly be attached to the ThinkPad USB port.

The USB 3.0 to DVI/VGA Monitor Adapter does not disable a system's graphics capabilities.
