Making
use
of USB
(Universal Serial Bus)
(Universal Serial Bus) is an innovation in connecting your different
desktop peripherals conveniently to your computer. By using the USB, you will
be able to connect your mouse, keyboard, and other peripherals to your
monitor instead of having to connect them to your computer. This will give you
greater flexibility in setting up your system. USB allows you to connect a chain
of up to 120 devices on a single USB port; and you can "hot" plug (attach them
while the computer is running) or unplug them while maintaining the Plug and
the Plug auto detection and configuration. This monitor has an integrated BUSpowered USB hub, allowing up to 2 other USB devices to be attached it.
