Toshiba outs 14-inch, DisplayLink-powered USB mobile monitor for $200

It's been a hot minute since we've seen a new DisplayLink-equipped secondary monitor, but it looks as if the drought is ending today. Toshiba has quietly pushed out a new 14-inch mobile USB display, weighing just 2.8 pounds and retailing for a freakishly affordable $199.99. That sum gets you 1366 x 768 pixels, 220 nits of brightness -- if you plug in an optional AC adapter -- a 400:1 contrast ratio, 16 millisecond response time and native support for Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP. As these things go, a simple USB connection is all that's required to provide basic power to the unit and send the signal, and it seems to be shipping now for those who've outgrown their 7-inch Mimo.
