Product Category: Cable Accessories
Where to Buy: Pc-Mobile
Price: US$28.50 (extra shipping costs apply)
System Requirements: Dell Axim X50v
- Low-cost alternative;
- Sturdy build.
- Image on the external display may be slightly out of position (though can be corrected);
- No ClearVue Suite as seen in the Dell Presentation Bundle.
One neat feature of the Dell Axim X50v is its native VGA-out support, courtesy of the integrated Intel 2700G multimedia accelerator. With the Dell Presentation Bundle, you can easily take advantage of this feature by outputting the contents of your X50v onto a monitor, a projector, and even a widescreen television. But there are two caveats with this: (1) the Dell Presentation Bundle costs US$79.00, which doesn't make it a cost-friendly accessory, and (2) Dell does not officially sell this Presentation Bundle in all parts of the world, effectively leaving some users in the dark.
Enter Pc-Mobile's VGA Cable Adapter for the X50v - a low-cost alternative to Dell's Presentation Bundle. How does it rate? Read on to find out!<!>
