    USB 3.0 to HDMI Adapter

    Add an additional HDMI® display to your computer system using this USB 3.0 to HDMI Adapter from Monoprice!

    This adapter supports resolutions up to 2048 x 1152 with 32-bit color depth using a USB 3.0 connection, with full audio support. It can be configured as a mirrored, extended, or primary display and when extended, the display can be positioned above, below, or to either side of the primary display.

    The adapter comes with a 28" long micro USB 3.0 cable, which can be swapped out for a longer version (not included), as desired. It also includes an HDMI to DVI adapter, which allows you to connect to a DVI display instead of HDMI (note that DVI does not support audio).

    The adapter is compatible with Windows® XP or later and with Intel®-based Macs running OS X® 10.4.x or later. The software for the adapter will function on older single-core processors, but performance is limited. Full-screen DVD playback in a system using six adapters requires a minimum 1.8GHz Intel Core™ Duo with 1GB RAM.

    Note that for Windows 7 and Windows 8, this adapter may exhibit compatibility issues with systems running NVIDIA® SLI® in SLI mode, and is incompatible with AMD Crossfire™, SLI systems NOT in SLI mode, and multiple simultaneously active WDDM 1.1 or WDDM 1.2 graphics drivers. All graphics cards are supported on systems running Windows XP.

    Is there a place to download drivers for this online? my PC has no disc drive.
    A shopper on Apr 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hey, try displaylink(dot)com for drivers. Although my windows PC and laptop downloaded drivers automatically, I had to download it from this website for my Macbook Pro. I hope that helps.

    Works Great
    This adapter works great. I am using it on a Macbook Air running El Capitan, to drive a monitor that has 1920 by 1200 resolution. That is beyond the resolution in the specs, but it works just fine. They have a driver for El Capitan on the website don't bother with the CD. In fact, they don't really need to include a CD.

    PROS: Allowed me to add a third display to my MacBook: the notebook display, an external 30 inch, 2560 by 1600 display connected through the Thunderbolt port, and this new one connected through USB 3.0. Love having all three monitors to work with. Typical Monoprice goodness: great price, good quality, does what I want.

    CONS: None so far. Would be nice if you didn't have to install drivers, but I suppose that is not their fault.

    It works
    I'm only about 2 days into using this cable but I will update if it breaks or otherwise stops working.

    I got this cable to do a dual monitor setup with my Alienware Alpha. As the title says, this worked great out-of-box for me. The drivers all auto-installed (Though the package does come with a disc with the drivers on it).

    A side note, you will not be able to game on the monitor that is attached to this adapter since the adapter is using its own video card. However, second monitor works great for web browsing and video streaming.

    Great product for connecting 2 additional monitors
    This worked as advertised. Was able to connect 2 monitors to my 27" iMac for an extended desktop.

    Price Changed, but it works great
    Works well. Plugged in, it installed itself and started working within a few minutes. Sucks that the price was lowered after I paid twice as much.

    Screen blanks after one month of usage
    I have been using it for about two months now and now i started to notice that my screen goes blank for a quick moment and then comes back up. It does this few times. I just shut if off because i dont want to damage my external monitor. I am using it for my windows and 2010 mac book pro. I would like a replacement?

    PROS: Great resolution

    CONS: Screen goes blank. Its annoying.!!!

    Very Weak
    I bought this two months ago - it broke within a week.
    I got a replacement, but it displayed the same issues and broke shortly after. I'm thinking this is just a poor quality product.

    It works for a while, but then any time you do so much as nudge your desk or breathe in the general direction of the adapter, the connection either blinks out or cuts completely, and seems to decide completely at random when it wants to start working again.
    Eventually it just won't work, no matter what crazy position you try and set the wires into in hopes of the signal coming back.
    It just seems internally fragile, somehow - and I've been treating it exceedingly gently!

    I really wanted to like this, but I just can't recommend it. I'll be looking into alternatives.

    (I will say, however, Monoprice themselves has been incredibly helpful and understanding about these issues. Amazing customer service)

    Stopped Working After 6 Weeks
    This worked great at first, but stopped working after 6 weeks, after the return policy expired. Tested on multiple machines and with another one of these someone in the office has. Will not buy again. Surprised since most Monoprice items are great quality.
