    Adding 3rd monitor to laptop

    I want to add a 3rd monitor to my laptop but the docking station only has outputs for two. How well do the USB video cards work? Any recommendations? Is there another option?

    Re: Adding 3rd monitor to laptop

    I bought a couple of these in 2008 and they work just fine. It does look like they are discontinued now, but we are still using them.

    I needed a 3rd as well while running some mapping programs but didn't need a huge monitor so i got one of these. It's USB and has it's own drivers as the video card in my laptop wouldn't support a third monitor. Works great.

    That looks interesting but I already have a monitor I can use.
