USB Powered Monitors

Recently read an article about USB powered monitors, and I’m quite excited. I’ve never actually heard about USB monitors until now. The concept is to use USB to power the monitor and transmit the picture. One cord provides power and picture, eliminating yet another wire from behind the computer. Manufacturers have run into problems with the power portion of the concept, as USB doesn’t transmit enough power for a full LCD monitor.

USB 3.0, however, offers almost twice as much power as USB 2.0, and Asus has taken advantage of that. Granted, the monitor is stripped of features, like speakers and USB ports, but personally, I don’t care. I use my monitors as monitors and have dedicated speakers and USB hubs. At only 16.5mm thick, the monitor is full HD with a 2ms response. Overall, this is something I’d love to have. No release date mentioned.
