    USB 2.0 to DVI Display Adapter (2048x1152)

    This USB 2.0 Graphic Adapter allows you to quickly and easily add an additional monitor to your desktop or laptop. 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.

    Great Product

    Pros: Plug and Play. One in each Docking Station (Work / Home). SO easy to use.

    Cons: NA

    Super product. Really helps and assists me for the additional two (2) monitors required. With Apps we are provided requiring more and more "real estate" (read: takes up lots of space), this product really does help getting past "normal" limitations.

    Excellent USB Video Adapter

    • Robert Gower,

    • 4/4/2015 12:16:19 PM

    Pros: HD Resolution
    Low profile design of the adapter.
    Green LED indicator
    DVI, HMDI adapters provided.
    Audio cable provided if you need it.

    Cons: I bought 5, 1 adapter was defective.

    I have 4 ( Monoprice external video adapter) PID: 6038 adapters on my work laptop running 4 (VX series) 22" widescreen Viewsource HD monitors using Monoprice desktop mounting hardware. Resolution and speed the monitors are refreshed works great for my application, which is mostly spreadsheets, Citrix applications and network monitoring tools.

    Great for 2 Monitor Set Up!

    Pros: Worked perfectly, easy to use, reliable for every-day office tasks. Has adaptors for all types of video monitors, making it very flexible.

    Cons: A little bulky, but I just hide it behind the monitor

    I have a 2013 Macbook Air that I wanted to set up with 2 external monitors at work. I purchased an ElGato Thunderbolt dock. Into that I have a MiniDisplay-DVI converter for monitor 1 and off of the ElGato dock, this USB-VGA converter for monitor 2. They work perfectly! Occasionally my applications bar gets moved to the wrong screen and stuck, but I just unplug and replug in the ElGato dock and everything resets. I'm very happy with this product over the last 2 weeks. I hope it continues to work well for much longer!

    Great way to get cheap dual (external) monitors off a MacbookPro

    Pros: being USB I really did not expect much, but I've been constantly surprised and pleased by what this thing is capable of.
    * It will easily drive a full HD resolution display, even rotated to Portrait mode
    * Have played you-tube videos, and done google-hangouts on the display powered off this adaptor without any obvious lagging, shearing, or stuttering.
    * With latest drivers downloaded easily supports Mountain Lion OS on a mac. (and I see a driver for Mavericks, although I have yet to test that (waiting for corp IT 'ok')
    * works well hung off back of a Mac Thunderbolt display, plugged into the built in USB ports
    * works via a powered USB Hub, plugged into USB port on the macbook pro
    * great way to make use of a older display as a third display in addition to an apple Thunderbolt display, or a standard display running on the tbolt port using a mini display-port - DVI adaptor

    Cons: * They need to better document the 'trick' of holding down a key (I think it was control) to enable the rotation control on a Mac, so your can have display in orientation other than Landscape orientation.
    * doubt it would be fast enough to satisfy a gamer, but great for typical 'office' and browsing use
    * (not really a con against this product) when running off the mac thunderbolt display, it will sometimes not properly initialize it's USB ports and everything plugged into them fails to work, including this adaptor, this requires me to unplug and replug the tbolt plug from/to the macbook pro once or twice and then things start working again.. yeah quality apple hardware)

    My work supplied me with a nice Macbook pro, and I work at home part of the time, where I wanted to setup a pair of external monitors. Supporting one is easy via a tbolt/mini-dp to dvi adaptor, but supporting a second monitor is not supported that way unless you get the fancy and pricy apple Thunderbolt displays. Given I had a pair of perfectly good monitors at home, going the official apple route was a non starter for me. But I found this and figured how wrong could I go for $50? the answer was not at all. It's been working great. Even had the (disbelieving) IT guys order one for work so I could make use of a spare 24" dell monitor we had laying around. Then one of the other guys who does not like the glare of the apple monitors replaced Thunderbolt monitor with a pair of 24" monitors, one of which also runs off one of these adaptors. So, so far three for three, working great, no problems. a fantastic way to support a second external monitor hooked to a laptop, mac or windows
