    Works on El Capitan with some quirks
    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.

    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.

    Not too bad
    I will let the numbers speak for themselves, but this adapter works with no troubles on a Macbook Pro (late '08 model) but at 1920x1080 there is a bit of jumpiness on the monitor connected to the usb adapter. I can tell a difference right away with just how the mouse moves around the screen, and especially if any type of media rich content is being displayed on it.

    I monitored "top" while moving a youtube video from monitor to monitor and I seen 20%-40% higher utilization on my CPU with the video being played on the monitor using the adapter. Again, this is at 1080P res so for lower res it may be ok.

    I am not 100% satisfied with the results, but I will probably use it until triplehead2go supports full 1080P.

    Here are some XBench numbers:

    Setup: MBP, 2.4Ghz, 2GB ram, Snow Leopard 10.6.2, ASUS 24" monitor 1080P on DVI out, and second identical monitor on usb/dvi adapater in same res

    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

    Excellent product
    I had been looking at nearly identical units at other merchants, and they were consistently $20 to $35 more than this one. I have mine connected to a USB 2.0 KVM switch to power a second monitor while the oprimary display goes through the KVM. THe performace was very disappointing on my original KVM, choppy, fuzzy video. Then I discovered that my KVM was only USB 1.1. I swapped it out with a newer KVM that has USB 2.0 ports and the difference is amazing. I haven't tried video on it yet, but the oicture is beautiful and the response is snappy, just as though it were connected to another internal card.
    Mine is driving a second monitor for both my laptop and my desktop, and has worked flawlessly under Windows 7 64bit and Windows Server 2008 R2. Download the drivers at the manufacturer site, at the URL provided by Monoprice, and it should work great. I'm thinking about adding another one when I can afford another monitor for the setup.

    PROS: Simple installation and operation, great quality, low price

    CONS: Gets rather warm, so don't cover it up

    Worked Perfectly, saved the day
    Currently running windows 7 on a macbook pro and needed a high quality adapter to run 2 24inch monitors. Had problems with other adapters, this one works great and saved the day!

    4/5
    1920x1080 has some refresh issues, but overall I'd say job well done. Perfect for office work, but not for gaming or video. Hopefully that can be resolved with usb3.0 or another standard in the future. Here are some XBench numbers for anyone interested:

    USB 2.0 Display Adapter
    This product performs quite well for the price, and does exactly what I need it to. The refresh-rate is a little slow at times, but not a big deal for documents and spreadsheets. My only problem with this device is the description on the website. The impression that it gives is that one display adapter can support up to six simultaneous displays. The user manual is a little more descriptive and mentions that the adapter is capable of supporting a single extra monitor, and that with six adapters you can run up to six simultaneous displays. Although this can be perceived from the description on the site, it is missing the one detail that I think it should include. The product itself is great!

    Product Review
    Overall its a good product and I would definatly recomend it.

    PROS: Works well and easy to install for everyday desktop that needs a second monitor

    CONS: The image quality and the speed is a little worse then from onboard graphics card
    May 3, 2011
    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.
