Introduction
The USB Mono Port Replicator enables a single PC whether a desktop or laptop
to easily access multiple computing peripherals. With only one USB cable between a
PC and the USB Port Replicator, it includes accessibilities to network, serial devices,
multimedia (speakers, microphone, line-in), display monitor and any of the USB based
peripheral (i.e. keyboard, mouse, printers, scanners, PDAs, digital cameras and more).
Delivering video signals without the quality and performance trade-offs1 provides
a truly single USB cable solution between your PC and the port replicator. In addition to
laptop’s VGA port, USB Port Replicator’s video port can be 2nd or 3rd external monitor
option. Similarly for desktop users, they can connect to another display monitor without
having to purchase and to physically install additional video graphic card.
