Sapphire Vid-2X Display Expander Review

Display expanders cannot be found in abundance on PC hardware market. In fact, not every user knows what the main purpose of those devices is. In the most general meaning, display expanders are splitters that allow the connection of two monitors towards a single output on a graphics card. However, their destination is not limited by this function only, since it might serve some other means as well. Sapphire introduces its own similar solution in the form of Vid-2X Display Expander model. The manufacturer assures that this splitter differs from traditional couplers in terms of functional and reliability.


Splitter Sapphire Vid-2X Display Expander is housed in a black plastic casing with gray side plates. The casing's cover is divided in two parts; the spacing between them serves ventilation and heat management means. The base accommodates rubber stands which provide for the framework steadiness. It should be mentioned that Sapphire delivers two models simultaneously …
