    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.

    Is this compatible with Windows 10 yet?
    Michael C on Nov 28, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, this item should automatically install under Windows 10, if not you can use the drivers that come with it and install it under compatibility mode for Windows 8. I hope this helps, thank you!
    will this really not work with any CPU less than core i5, or will it just not reach it's highest resolution?

    Its going to be a pretty sweet adapter, if they ever decide to get with the times. I didn't realize it wasn't windows 10 compatible so i bought this for my third monitor at work. Well I cant tell you if it works or not.

    PROS: USB 3.0, sleek, compact design, plug and play.

    CONS: I haven't got to see it work.

    Not Windows 10 Compatible
    ordered this and it didn't work with Windows 10. if you're running that OS then i would not recommend buying this until they update the drivers

    PROS: Small, compact design, USB 3.0 is awesome

    CONS: Not compatible with Windows 10

    Works fine if everything aligns
    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.

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

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

    did not work
    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!

    PROS: got here quickly.

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

    USB 3.0 to VGA Adapter
    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.

    I got this to be able to use a 3rd monitor. As one of the reviewers mentioned, the maximum resolution I got was 800X600. It says in the packaging the the maximum resolution will depend on how many monitors you have but I didn't expect it to be this low. To be fair, my laptop Core i5 2.4GHz and 3Gb RAM didn't meet the minimum requirements.

    PROS: Low Price

    USB 3.0 to VGA Adapter
    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.

    It doesn't work on a HP Laptop, Win 7 Enterprise,port USB 3.0. The maximum resolution that I can use is 800x600. It says that the adapter it's not working in 3.0 mode. The weird part is that laptop has just usb 3.0 ports. The installation worked normal. In device manager everything is working properly.

    I looks like a good product.
    I am really excited to use this. The only problem is that i didn't read the review and see that it is currently not compatible with windows 10. My review would probably be 5 starts if they push the driver update.

    PROS: Sleek, clean design.

    CONS: Doesn't work with windows 10.

    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.

    PROS: Works but blurry

    CONS: Not true 1920x1080
