    USB 3.0 to VGA Adapter

    Add an additional VGA display to your computer system using this USB 3.0 to VGA Adapter from Monoprice!

    This adapter supports resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 @ 60Hz using a USB 3.0 connection or up to 800 x 600 using USB 2.0. It is fully compatible with Windows® Aero® Effects and can be configured as a mirrored, extended, or primary display. When extended, the display can be positioned above, below, or to either side of the primary display.

    The adapter comes with a 7" long micro USB 3.0 cable, which can be swapped out for a longer version (not included), as desired. It contains the required driver software built into the adapter, so there are no separate drivers to download or lose the CD for.

    The adapter is compatible with Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.x, and requires a minimum Intel i5 2.8GHz processor (or equivalent AMD processor) and 4GB RAM. Multiple adapters can be installed to the same system to allow for multiple additional displays. Note that with each additional adapter added to the system, the maximum resolution for each is decreased.

    Item was received as ordered. I was unable to get the computer to project to the TV using this product but I am not sure why. I have ordered from MONOPRICE.COM in the past and always had good luck. I will be back in the future.

    Pros: Works but blurry

    Cons: Not true 1920x1080

    Not a clean, crisp 1920 x 1080. It is blurry and hurts my eyes. I have dual 24" screens connected to my laptop and when I compare the screen connected to HDMI vs the screen connected to this adapter it is very obvious that this is not a true 1920 x 1080. The items are the same size in both screens but it's just blurry on the one. I downloaded the latest drivers from the manufactures website. I have a new lenova yoga 700 running windows 10. I did not have any issues with quality before when my old laptop was connected directly to the monitor via VGA. I bought this item because it seemed like a good value but it does not offer true 1920x1080 quality. Please note that I do have USB 3.0 and this is not 800x600 resolution.

    Thank you for your review. When using a VGA monitor, please make sure to calibrate the monitor to see if the blurriness will disappear. I hope this helps!

    Works fine if everything aligns

    Pros: Price is right. Small and easy to transport. Works fine if everything aligns.

    Cons: No connectors to secure it to the VGA source.

    Because my laptop has only one USB 3.0 port, I tried to use it with my USB 3.0 hub. It caused my secondary screen to flash. If you have more than one peripheral that needs a 3.0 port (e.g., external hard drive), you are out of luck. Also, because the adaptor does not have the attachment screws the connection is in jeopardy unless you can lay the two cords flat so the law of gravity doesn't kick in to make the connection unstable. I was recently at a meeting making a presentation and all i had to work with was the podium. My laptop fit but the connection had to hang off the side and it would fade in and out.

    did not work

    Pros: got here quickly.

    Cons: failed to work after multiple attempts on 2 different computers and two different monitors. (:

    I plugged it in the usb 3.0 port, installed the software, rebooted and could not under any circumstances get it to work. I then tried it on another new computer (both windows 10) with a different monitor. Neither time would it work. I really need it for this location, but alas after travelling 232 miles to come to my office here to install it, it would not work. I have been a computer tech for more than 30 years, no novice!

    I used it in my PC's one is windows 8 another 8.1 and others, window 7... Makes the monitor's screen connected to the item to flick (On and off) too often and is annoying.

    Hi Ado,

    Truly sorry to hear the monitor is cutting out when connected to this adapter. If I may ask, what are the makes and models of the processors in those computers? Also, how much RAM do they each have installed? Can we test the adapter with a different VGA cable just to see if the issue persists? What about with another monitor? My apologies again for the trouble and thank you for your feedback.

    NOTE: No display at all when device is connected to Windows 10
    The only reason I keep the item is 'cause it works good enough as a display to show others as customers the activity as the blinking is not as bad as when if U're doing any work in the blinking screen

    I see. Looking at these processors, they unfortunately do not meet the requirements needed for this adapter to work properly. This adapter requires a minimum Intel i5 2.8GHz processor (or equivalent AMD processor) along with 4GB of RAM.

    If interested, we offer PID 8080 instead which does not have those minimum requirements:
