LG's Flatron LX206WU joins the multiple USB display party

Nilay Patel

We're not sure why hooking up six displays has suddenly become the new USB multiple-monitor demo of choice, but LG isn't one to let Samsung have all the glory -- the company's showing off the multiple-display capabilities of the just-announced the USB-capable 20.1-inch Flatron LX206WU, which outguns Sammy's UbiSync 940UX by a single, triumphant inch. The LX is actually just a minor rev of the L206WU, adding in DVI and VGA connections so Mac and Linux peeps can get at that 5000:1 contrast ratio and 2ms response time -- just like the similarly DisplayLink-based 940UX, USB connections are Windows-only. No word on Stateside availability, but if you're headed to Korea we hear a smile and 390,000 won ($388) should do the trick.
