    USB 2.0 to DVI Display Adapter (1920x1080)

    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.

    The driver uses very few computer resources 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 USB 2.0 Graphic Adapter.

    It supports up to six simultaneous displays, including widescreen displays, extending your both desktop and your horizons. It operates at a maximum resolution of 1600x1200 (4:3) or 1920x1080 (16:9).

    Works great

    Pros: Plug and play
    Fast response time for usb monitor
    Works on old laptop
    Supports VGA/hdmi/dvi

    I was able to use 2 of these to make my old laptop run 3 screens, there was no install or anything, just plug it in and it works. Both monitors are highly responsive, and it's only when I have a YouTube video playing at full screen that I can even tell what monitors are usb. Fantastic product would highly recommend.

    It just Works

    Pros: Easy to use
    Quick to set up
    Works great
    Good support directly from DisplayLink

    Cons: None I can think of

    Open the box. Plug it in, open the Windows screen resolution dialog and drag things around to fit. Get to work. Forget about it. That about sums up my experience with these.

    I have a central 27" monitor driven directly from the laptop's DVI port, and four other monitors (19" portrait mode) all driven by these. I'm a designer, and always have lots of windows (email, browser, documentation, CAD tools, terminals, text editors etc) open all the time, and being able to spread things out over multiple monitors has been a big productivity enabler.

    These appear to be either a re-badged or a minimally-modified DisplayLink reference design. When I changed laptops earlier this year I initially had a minor display driver issue, but I contacted DisplayLink directly and they were able to sort it out within an hour.

    Yes, being USB 2.0, it is possible to see a small amount of tearing if I drag a window quickly. So what. I'm not playing twitch games, I'm working, and only a small portion of the screen is being updated at any one time, so this is never an issue. That being said, I've occasionally had video running on one of my external monitors, and I've never noticed a quality issue.

    Works on El Capitan with some quirks

    Pros: Works with the system "Display" preference panel.

    Cons: Mac (El Capitan 10.11.x) issues:

    Requires driver installation.

    Can't unplug two monitors at the same time. Unplug USB, wait for OS X to adjust desktop, unplug other monitor. Otherwise you get stuck with all of your windows on an invisible, inaccessible desktop.

    Driver spams the system console.

    Some mouse lag (as expected for USB 2.0). I'd estimate i'm getting 20 FPS at 1920 x 1080.

    Works on El Capitan with some quirks. I use to display things that don't animate like PDFs, web pages, terminal sessions. Overall I'm satisfied for the price.

    Glad I found this

    Pros: Fast and easy to setup
    No need to read instructions
    Includes multiple connectors to fit many different monitors

    Cons: I balked at the price, but now that I have the device and everything works so well, I can't complain much.

    Super easy to connect and set up. I didn't even bother looking at the instructions (which would be cheating anyway). Just pulled it out of the box, chose the right connector for my monitor (DVI and pulled it I to my laptop. Presto! Two monitors with extended desktop. Love it!
