USB 2.0 to DVI Display Adapter (1280x1024)

The USB 2.0 to DVI Display Adapter allows you to connect an extra monitor to your desktop PC or laptop's USB port. The connected monitor can be configured to either clone your primary screen, or extend the Windows desktop allowing visibility of more applications at the same time.

The driver used to control the extra screen uses very little computer resource and offers a vast array of screen resolutions and color depths. This ensures that there is little difference in performance between a directly connected screen and a screen connected through the adapter.

It supports up to six simultaneous displays, including widescreen displays, thereby extending your desktop and your horizons. It operates at a maximum resolution of 1280x1024/1400x1050.

Spec's report max resolution of 1280 x 1024. Since my other monitors are set to 1920 x 1080, I started the RMA process to replace it with a 6040, which specifies 1920 x 1080. Since I had the device, I plugged it in to see how it would perform. It supports 1920 x 1080 without issue.

Worked great for four years.

Pros: Worked perfectly since January 2010
A perfect solution for multiple monitors while using a laptop.

Cons: After four years of daily use the adapter has begun acting finicky.
Now, if I don't unplug the adapter from both the monitor and USB (I use a powered hub) for several minutes prior to connecting my computer Windows tells me that my device is malfunctioning.

This display adapter has been connected to a powered USB hub on my work desk for four years and during the business week has been outputting to a monitor for about 8 hours a day every day. It has served me well, but I suspect that the capacitors (or something else) are dying. I have to make sure that it is not connected to anything for several minutes prior to plugging the USB cable in and then connecting the monitor otherwise it refuses to work at all.

Just today a new symptom has started. It is randomly "rebooting" (the monitor will go black and then quickly turn back on only to go black again). several times in a row then will be fine for an extended period of time.

I love this adapter but I fear that it's days are numbered.

Does the Job

Pros: Gets third monitor for my iMac.

Cons: Lag time gets some getting used to.

Monoprice customer support is the worst I have ever encountered. Lame, generic answers to questions of concern. I even took the time to answer a followup survey. No response. I buy from Monoprice because I save money.

Pros: Awsome adapter, comes in real handy for using an extra monitor with just a usb drive. great quality, and the hdmi is very useful, all at a low cost.

Great bang for the buck, if needing to use an extra monitor.
