Turn your laptop into a "full workstation" through just one USB connection. Watch movies on one screen while working on another, or utilize split screens to have 4 different windows open at once (nice for writing a paper with multiple references open).
- Monitor stand allows monitors to pivoted to either landscape or portrait mode.
- USB hub is capable of handling just about everything. I ran 2 monitors, speakers, keyboard, a phone tether, and 3 external hard drives through it at the same time.
Retail price: $600.
My Price: $300.

Note: I do not have the original pedestal monitor stands. Also, a few of the LED indicators on the USB hub are dislocated (no effect on functionality).
