    Known issues with DisplayLink on OS X 10.9 and 10.10 (Mavericks & Yosemite):

    The following issues have been found on OS X 10.9 and 10.10 and do not currently have a resolution:

    • Corruption on the border of application windows.
    • Some applications can show corruption and/or missing contents while updating windows contents. Examples are Maps, iBooks and the Dock.
    • All screens black and unusable after unplugging a DisplayLink screen. This is caused by Apple's Window server crashing. This can be recovered by replugging the DisplayLink device.
    • On the Retina Macbook Pro, layout changes involving the built in graphics can log the user out. Again this is caused by Apple's Window server crashing.
    • The Window Server crashes logging out the user during some full screen transitions, for example Show Desktop.
    • Apple menu icon misplaced on DisplayLink screens

    Version 2.4 beta 2 and later of the DisplayLink drivers include workarounds for some OS defects and is recommended to all Mavericks and Yosemite users.

    DisplayLink uses standard Apple interfaces to integrate into OS X to add additional USB graphics displays and obtain screen updates. Unfortunately there are still issues with these interfaces preventing us from providing a good user experience in all use cases on OS X 10.9 and later.

    DisplayLink has raised these bugs to Apple and continues to look for further workarounds to improve the user experience.

    Good product for hooking up 2nd and 3rd monitor
    I have a laptop with a single HDMI out. I connected 2 of these adapters to the USB3 ports on the laptop. They are now running external monitor 2 and 3 using the displayport connections. Works great under Windows 10.

    PROS: Works under Windows 10 without having to use install disk.

    CONS: None.

    Works as advertised
    Tested on a 2009 Macbook (USB2), a 2014 Macbook Air (USB3), and a 2015 Macbook Retina (using monoprice 4-port USB-C to USB3 hub). It works in OS X, even though elements of the GUI are sometimes discolored. This is expected, since there are limitations in the integration with OS X, and I appreciate that this was mentioned in the product description. There is slight lag, especially at 4K30, but it works well as a productivity display. The line in/line out is useful, especially since newer macs typically don't have a dedicated line in. The line out DAC is excellent quality, but the line in ADC doesn't capture as much detail. Also be wary of noise crossover at excessive line in levels. All in all does what you need it to do, even though it isn't as good as a native display-out connection.

    PROS: Adds an extra display. Adjusts to work with USB2. Provides 4K30. Good-quality audio out, decent stereo audio in.

    CONS: Graphical distortions under OS X. Noticeable lag at 4K30, very slight lag at 1080p. The audio in ADC isn't as detailed as the audio out.
