    Pros: Worked Great, Using Windows 7, Really just plug and play. Only choice I had to make was how to setup the second monitor. I wanted it as mirrored screen which is a HDMI TV on the wall to watch movies on and it worked perfectly. Would recommend this product.

    Cons: Did not see any cons, Worked as advertised.

    Would recommend this product to anyone who wants a second screen. I have a HP all in one computer with no video output. So I used this to have a second screen which is a HDMI Plasma TV on the wall. Hooked it up first try to USB and HDMI to TV and it worked perfectly.

    Does NOT work under Linux!

    I am very disappointed with this order. It is advertised in the product page that this adapter works under Linux and they even have a link to download the Linux driver package. However when I tried it under openSUSE 13.1 it didn't work at all. I am sure that I have correctly configured, compiled and installed the provided driver and "lsusb" can locate the device when plugged in but the driver is not specifically matching. After a long session I finally ended up with the total disappointment when I realized that in FAQ section, it is explicitly said that this device is not supported under Linux but in the product page you can see the "supported in Linux" crap. What a total shame! I want to initiate a return.

    Hi Ari,

    Truly sorry for the experience you have had with PID 216990. Can you describe your setup including all devices and cables in use? Please note the FAQ was created before the drivers for Linux were released. If you would like, I can email the latest drivers for Linux to see if that changes anything. Please let me know so that I may further assist you.

    Hi Ari,

    Regarding the drivers, you may also find the most recent drivers on the product page which you may download here:

    Should the driver not resolve the issue, I can assist you in setting up an RMA for a return. Please let me know the results of your testing as well as how you would like to proceed. Hope this helps!
