USB 3.0 MultiPort Adapter with DVI, HDMI and GigaBit Ethernet
Add two additional video displays and a Gigabit Ethernet connection to your laptop or desktop computer system using this USB 3.0 Multiport Adapter from Monoprice!
The adapter features a 6" pigtail USB 3.0 cable and includes both HDMI and DVI video outputs, both of which are simultaneously active. It includes a DVI to VGA adapter, so you can connect the second output to either a DVI or VGA monitor. It also includes a full-duplex 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet connection.
This adapter supports resolutions up to 2560 x 1440 when using only the HDMI output, and support DVI/VGA resolutions of 2048 x 1152 and 1920 x 1080, respectively. The displays can be configured to extend the desktop or to mirror another display. When extended, the displays can be positioned above, below, or to either side of the primary display.
The adapter is compatible with Windows® XP or later, though Microsoft limits additional monitors to the mirror function with the Windows 7 "Starter" Edition.. The software requires a minimum Dual Core Intel CPU running at 2GHz or better and a video chipset from either Intel, AMD, or NVIDIA.

PROS: 3 adapters in one!
Works as expected.
Multiple monitors simultaneously.
CONS: Short USB cord.
Install disk does not have Windows 10 drivers, but hey, the online documentation never stated it would.
A while back I hooked up a 2nd monitor through a USB port to DVI adapter (not an MP device but does use Display Link software inside of it) and it worked well. I checked out solutions on how I could add a 3rd and 4th monitor to my laptop and the p.c. retail gurus in Denver had me convinced I'd need to get a new p.c. with a beefy video card with 4 outputs.
I researched other USB 2.0/3.0 adapters to convert to DVI (which I could then convert to HDMI or VGA) but it appeared as though there'd be issues if all of these external monitors were not using the same brand or manufacturer of adapters and whatever software resided within each adapter. And that solution was 1 adapter per monitor which at $40 to $50 it was going to get expensive. And may not work.
Once I found out that this MP device supports (2) monitors, was less than $40 (and I got it for 20% off during a site wide discount deal) and had the Display Link software that is in my other adapter I thought I'd give it a chance.
Works like a charm! Now in all fairness, I'm not a gamer. This is my work machine and I need to have 3 applications open all day long. But no video or streaming music...basic business stuff and it works great. I could not be happier and the install was literally a few minutes of me watching it load, talk to each other and voila! Monitors started lighting up as the smile came across my face.
Came with a DVI to VGA adapter and one other that I can't recall but it wasn't listed in the description but it came with it. This is nice bang for the buck way to hang (2) more monitors off of a USB 2.0 port (or 3.0 if you've got one and I"d assume it would even perform better(, it's USB powered....no transformer.....well done MP. No issues for me as the 3rd and 4th monitors lagging as they refresh, change screens but I'm not concerned with lighting fast speed.
Also comes with a 30 day trial of "Multiple Monitors" software which gives some really nice functionality for cheap, which I plan on buying here in about 20 days. Best money I've spent with Monoprice to date.
