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.

PROS: Low Price
The user threw out the blister pack it came in, so I'm going to have to hold on to this now until I need a display adapter for a system with a USB 3.0 port.
DON'T PURCHASE THIS UNLESS you're absolutely sure you have USB 3.0 (usually a blue-tinted USB port indicates USB 3.0).
PROS: Small form factor, self-installs with Fresco drivers (DisplayLink equivalent almost always requires downloading from DisplayLink).
CONS: Absolutely REQUIRES USB 3.0 or it won't work properly.
