    Worked great
    Worked great for me. I use this with a Macbook Pro & an aging Fujitsu convertible. Both are as three screen setups. I downloaded the drivers from the DisplayLink website for both OS X & Windows. Worked without a problem.

    Nice item

    PROS: Easy setup with MacBook Air, downloaded drivers and works well.
    Good video playback.

    CONS: Slight lag with the mouse on the screen, takes a little bit to get used to but nothing you cant deal with.

    Very happy with this. I bought 2 Dell monitors that I thought would work via USB but that wasn't the case. So I had to buy this adapter to convert from DVI to USB so it's easy to work with my laptop. 2 of these and 2 DVI cables and bam, good to go!!

    PROS: Plug and play

    CONS: None

    Works great
    Rather easy to install, just connect the adapter via usb to your computer and let the software install automatically, then connect your monitor and enjoy the extra screen real estate. I would give this a 10 but occasionally there is a slight choppy lag on the second screen. I am not sure if that is caused by my laptop running one monitor via vga and one via usb or just the adapter itself stuttering, either way I would recommend this to anyone!

    Works well for my MacBook with OS/X Lion
    In addition I've used up to 3 of these on some older Mac Mini's to drive a combined 4 screens at 1024x768 with some animation on them (they were for large screen projection displays). They work flawless for that purpose and even after knocking around in our road case for 2 years work without issue everytime. We carry and spare and have never needed it.

    PROS: Works well. I have a MacBook Pro 15" with a Thunderbolt Cinema Display and this unit driving a Dell display at 1600x1200. So three screens combined.

    Works well, even Youtube videos show fine on it, slightly laggy for fast action but 100% fine for office applications (anything except games really).

    Comes with lots of adapters for HDMI, DVI, VGA.

    CONS: Doesn't have drivers for OS/X Lion, had to download them from DisplayLink site (easy).

    If I use the latest drivers for OS/X Lion it works well BUT fast user switching causes screen glitches and sometimes beach balls. Unplugging it first from the USB port, then plugging it back in after switching solves the issue. Hoping for a fix in newer drivers.

    Great Stuff!
    With the latest DisplayLink driver, I've had absolutely no problems with the display adapter. I now have 3 monitors being driven by my MacBook Pro. I was apprehensive when I read about the issues with OS X Lion, but I have not encountered any issues. I run the monitor plugged into the display adapter at 1600x1200 and the performance is perfectly acceptable.

    It just Works
    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.

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

    CONS: None I can think of

    Better than Expected
    I was so pleased with the results of this little adaptor, that I ordered additional and run them thru a USB hub. Great performance on standard office type workloads. My only issue is that the sys admin thru the supplied driver is a bit quirky. In the end, I did a registry hack to repair a driver issue.

    PROS: Performance was outstanding. I expected some lag, but cannot see any.
    Nice assortment of adapters USB, DVI, VGA. Reallly nice to not have to order separately.
    Wonderfully small form factor
    Comes with necessary drivers
    Easy to install

    CONS: The only negative is that the drivers load an extra display in my system [Windows XP SP3]. When I have 2 physical displays, three show in the administrative pannel. Could not get rid of the extra one. Finally went to registry, made a backup, deleted some lines, and held my breath. Upon reboot I was back down to 2 displays. Second XP machine behaved same way.

    Works great!
    Setup was a breeze, works great. Color is just the slightest hue different than the primary monitor (both monitors same make, model, settings but that is to be expected. Software came on a mini-cd, some people may have to download but monoprice included the link on the product page. Includes the VGA & HDMI adapters which is a nice bonus.

    Works Great
    I drive two monitors - one with a thunderbolt-vga adapter and the other with this adapter (using the vga connector). The usb-adapter driven monitor works as well (maybe even better) than the other one. I don't notice any lag when mousing or selecting on the usb-driven monitor.
