Put your dongles away; this adapter can add four monitors to your laptop

A new workplace accessory seems to solve the problem of adding awkward extra screens to your laptop or work PC.

Plugable’s recently released 4 HDMI Multi Monitor Adapter can add four HDMI displays to almost any computer running Windows 10 and newer, or macOS 11, including Macs with M1 or M2 chips that would otherwise support only one external monitor.

Although smaller than you might expect, the adapter still manages all the heavy lifting involved in delivering your video signal across multiple displays, connecting to the host computer via USB-C or USB 3.0 (with a USB-C to USB adapter included), or via HDMI for a single connection.

The adapter weighs a minuscule 0.62 lb / 7.4 oz and measures just 6.77 x 4.88 x 1.06 inches / 17.2 x 12.4 x 2.7 cm. The power to push content to four screens comes from a Silicon Motion chipset and a simple driver download via an automatic download on Windows or the InstantView app on Mac (not DisplayLink).
