Easy to setup, Disappointing performance

I own a 15" Macboook with 10.9.2 installed. I connected the device via a USB 3.0 port, downloaded the drivers (it's not PnP), and the image came right up after a restart. I noticed the peformance issue the second my mouse hit the second monitor... it mouse does not move as smooth in my second monitor as it does in my main monitor. Dragging a window around and the issue becomes more obvious... the window moves in a choppy manner while on the second monitor, and there's a slight lag which is annoying considering I spent $100 on this device and $329 on an LED IPS monitor. The resolution on my monitor is 1920x1200.. I tried lowering the resolution but that did not help.

Just to be sure, what year is your Macbook? I believe only 2012 and newer models have USB 3 ports.

Excellent performance, fantastic product!!

I don't typically write reviews for products, but have had such a positive experience with this product, and received unparalleled customer service from StarTech, that I had to write one- especially as this item hadn't been reviewed yet. After struggling to get 1440P out of a Toshiba laptop HDMI port, spending countless hours troubleshooting, and on the phone with engineers, I came across this device, and thought I'd try it. Wish I had saved myself the time and trouble, and just ordered this from day one! The unit is physically much smaller than I was expecting, and I had it up and running within three minutes of opening the box. As per the detailed instructions, install the driver first, reboot, then plug in the device and your DisplayPort monitor. I am using the product through a USB3.0 port, running 1440P, and the image quality and performance are spectacular. I do not notice any increase in CPU cycles, or video lag. I am running 1440P HD video, and the video is fluid and flawless. I do not run games, so cannot comment about ultra high refresh rates, or performance with USB2.0 ports, but for office/productivity users that are looking to add a second or even third high resolution display, this tiny device is perfect. I will not hesitate to purchase another one when I add a second 1440/1600P monitor.

Great to hear the USB32DPPRO is working well for you, thanks for letting us know. You're definitely right -- this adapter is well suited to office/productivity applications; with regards to gaming, an external video adapter isn't really a good option.

Julio · 06/02/2014

I want to know if it works for photography editing and if it takes advantage of a good monitor at high resolution. It is for my lenovo laptop with 16G and i7 at 2.2

Julio, I use Photoshop CS6 and LightRoom 5.3 regularly, and have not experienced any issues at all. I'm running an i7 at 2.4GHz with 24Gb RAM, and a fast SSD drive as my primary disk. Photo apps aren't horribly GPU intensive, so if you have a decent machine *with a USB3.0 port*, you should be fine.
