    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!
    Is this product compatible with Macbook Air?
    A shopper on Nov 19, 2017
    will this really not work with any CPU less than core i5, or will it just not reach it's highest resolution?
    A shopper on Jan 30, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It functions based on the specs provided. If you don't meet all the minimum criteria, my experience is that it will only port out SVGA (800x600) graphics.

    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
    August 27, 2015
    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.

    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. (:

    Works seamlessly as advertised. I run a new LG Ultrawide, and an older Dell 19" from my laptop, my laptops VGA doesnt like the older Dell and this is the answer, to convert to USB.

    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

    Make certain you have USB 3.0 before ordering
    I purchased this for a user who needs a third screen. I didn't check to make sure that he had USB 3.0, but assumed that at worst it would give him 1440 x 900 or even 1024 x 768. Nope. 800 x 600. The website description has been updated since I purchased to show this limitation, but really? 800 x 600? That's just not even trying! And it looked like it was only 256 colors, though that could just be the poor resolution playing tricks on my eyes.

    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.
