    Works. But disappointing.
    Colors are not very good. Blacks are not very depp/dark, more so dark grey. Tried all the color calibrations on my monitor setups, the colors from my laptop's video card to external monitor are much better and richer, both for a Windows laptop and Macbook. Was quite disappointed with the colors almost wanted to return it just based on poor colors. I'm pretty picky.

    1080p playback is EXTREMELY CHOPPY! Even low quality 1080p from YouTube is very choppy. Updated to the most recent drivers, and it didn't help at all 1080p playback is still choppy. Using a 24" LED monitor.

    Best use: Office type work. Internet browsing, word processing, programming...

    Don't use for: Multimedia, Video Playback (Movies), Video/Photo Editing, Gaming...anything else video intensive.

    PROS: Works with Windows and OSX.

    Works great for a basic 3rd monitor set up for work/office type tasks.

    Supports 1080p (kind of...)

    Affordable in comparison.

    CONS: 1080p support is choppy

    Video playback

    Colors are not rich (blacks are not deep)

    Price - expected more for the money.

    USB 2.0 to HDMI® Display Adapter w/ Audio (1920 x 1080)

    I wanted to attach my media center laptop to my 52 inch flat sceen plasma wall tv. BUT, the tv was so old that it didn't have vga, or even dvi.

    So, twice, from other companies, i bought (@ $75 a pop) 2 different "vga to hdmi" converters. Each was slow arriving, and each DIDN'T WORK as advertised when they did arrive.

    So i gave up on vga to hdmi..

    While surfing looking for an alternative, i came across this "USB to HDMI" converter. Not only was it promising, but it was also MUCH CHEAPER.

    I bought it. It arrived promptly in 3 days, and IT WORKED PERFECTLY THE FIRST TIME I PLUGGED IT IN...


    CONS: There are times when the screen goes blank, and i get the "no signal" error. The problem isn't the converter, but the HDMI STANDARD.... I know this because i used to work for AT&T U-VERSE as an installer. This happens all the time with HDMI BASED COMPONENTS.

    Fortunately, all i have to do is reboot the laptop, and the signal is re-established. HOWEVER, on those occasions, the VIDEO WILL NOT ACTUALLY COME ON UNTIL THE LAPTOP REACHES THE LOGON SCREEN. So be patient, after the reboot, you will get "no signal" until LOGON is reached.

    Product works great!
    Love the product! Love Monoprice!

    PROS: Works as described. Great product.

    CONS: Price is a little high.

    ok for extra desktop, not to playback full HD video
    Perfect for extra desktop for looking at windows, extra pallets in applications, etc.

    Don't expect to playback full-frame HD video in real time w/o any drop-frames, sheering or audio sync issues. QT movies have to be compressed quite a bit to enable the data rate of USB 2 to playback well.

    PROS: Easy set-up

    Includes full-size disc to install drivers

    CONS: Throughput from USB 2 too slow for full size HD Video - freeze frames, sheering, drop frames, audio not synced.
