    Known issues with DisplayLink® on OS X 10.9 and 10.10 (Mavericks & Yosemite):

    The following issues have been found on OS X 10.9 and 10.10 and do not currently have a resolution:

    • Corruption on the border of application windows.
    • Some applications can show corruption and/or missing contents while updating windows contents. Examples are Maps, iBooks and the Dock.
    • All screens black and unusable after unplugging a DisplayLink screen. This is caused by Apple's Window server crashing. This can be recovered by replugging the DisplayLink device.
    • On the Retina Macbook Pro, layout changes involving the built in graphics can log the user out. Again this is caused by Apple's Window server crashing.
    • The Window Server crashes logging out the user during some full screen transitions, for example Show Desktop.
    • Apple menu icon misplaced on DisplayLink screens

    Version 2.4 beta 2 and later of the DisplayLink drivers include workarounds for some OS defects and is recommended to all Mavericks and Yosemite users.

    DisplayLink uses standard Apple interfaces to integrate into OS X to add additional USB graphics displays and obtain screen updates. Unfortunately there are still issues with these interfaces preventing us from providing a good user experience in all use cases on OS X 10.9 and later.

    DisplayLink has raised these bugs to Apple and continues to look for further workarounds to improve the user experience.

    how well does this work on sierra? are the drivers still in beta, or have there been any updates in the last few years? the manual and driver links are a few years old...
    Charlton K on Mar 21, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The included drivers will be older drivers. However this will use DisplayLink drivers. DisplayLink has updated drivers available on their website for Sierra 10.12. You can download the updated drivers on DisplayLink's webpage. I hope this helps.
    Is this 4k 30hz or 60hz?
    Cheers
    A shopper on Sep 3, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: its 30 hz
    4.3 / 5.0

    Good product for hooking up 2nd and 3rd monitor
    I have a laptop with a single HDMI out. I connected 2 of these adapters to the USB3 ports on the laptop. They are now running external monitor 2 and 3 using the displayport connections. Works great under Windows 10.

    PROS: Works under Windows 10 without having to use install disk.

    CONS: None.

    Works. Uses DisplayLink 5500 chip.
    It works, even for video, but it drops some frames. It uses the display link 5500 chip, which is sufficient to drive one monitor.

    Works in OSX 10.11 with beta driver
    Works great, once you have the updated driver. Maybe I missed it, but it would be great if there was a link to the updated drivers or if Monoprice added the beta 2 driver here. Less searching required.

    Otherwise, happy as a clam on a 2012 Mac Mini with a HP E27i on the adapter.

    Works as advertised
    Tested on a 2009 Macbook (USB2), a 2014 Macbook Air (USB3), and a 2015 Macbook Retina (using monoprice 4-port USB-C to USB3 hub). It works in OS X, even though elements of the GUI are sometimes discolored. This is expected, since there are limitations in the integration with OS X, and I appreciate that this was mentioned in the product description. There is slight lag, especially at 4K30, but it works well as a productivity display. The line in/line out is useful, especially since newer macs typically don't have a dedicated line in. The line out DAC is excellent quality, but the line in ADC doesn't capture as much detail. Also be wary of noise crossover at excessive line in levels. All in all does what you need it to do, even though it isn't as good as a native display-out connection.

    PROS: Adds an extra display. Adjusts to work with USB2. Provides 4K30. Good-quality audio out, decent stereo audio in.

    CONS: Graphical distortions under OS X. Noticeable lag at 4K30, very slight lag at 1080p. The audio in ADC isn't as detailed as the audio out.

    Not bad.. a few gotchas
    I bought this to drive a third monitor rotated vertically. It's great for reading long documents and scrolling web pages. There is a slight lag in the mouse movements with this adapter. The color and resolution is okay for what I do. Installation as very easy on mac OS Sierra. The one complaint is the adapter seems to lock up my other screens when screens go to sleep. When I return this monitor comes back by moving the mouse. But my MacBook air login screen nor my 2 other monitors turn on until I plug this adapter.
