I plan on only using an external video adapter when someone come over to watch a movie, which doesn't happen often, so I could simply reboot to Windows in those instances. But if its easy to install and use, I'd pay a bit more to get a version such as this one (that I just quoted).
This is USB to DVI-I/HDMI/VGA Multi-Display Adapter. With USB 2.0 Display Adapter, DVI to VGA Adapter, DVI to HDMI Adapter and USB-A to USB-B Mini 5-pin Cable, it enable you to connect one more monitor/LCD/Projector...to a computer. Thus, with this handy item, you can enjoy lots of benifits by the added-on monitor for mirroring or extending the computer's web pages. It operates up to high resolution: Full HD - 1920*1080.
