Overview

This MST hub lets you connect four monitors to your Mini DisplayPort™ (mDP) 1.2 equipped Windows® tablet, laptop or desktop.

Increase productivity with multiple screens

The newest generations of computers are more portable than ever, which often means that you’re left with fewer video outputs and smaller integrated screens. This MST hub solves both of these problems by letting you connect four additional displays to your computer, which makes multitasking much easier. 

Increase Productivity with multiple screens

Connect to any display

With the MST hub, you can use Mini DisplayPort video adapters and cable adapters that enable you to connect HDMI, VGA or DVI displays. This ensures that your MST hub will be compatible with virtually any television, monitor or projector. The hub is VESA and DisplayPort certified to support DP 1.2 enabled systems, for seamless integration with your existing video equipment.

Connect to any display

Configure your displays for any environment

Using the MST hub, you can extend your desktop onto additional monitors and stream independent content to each display, giving you the freedom to multitask and increase your productivity. You can also mirror the same image onto multiple displays for remote viewing applications such as digital signage.

Enjoy amazing video quality, without draining system resources

MST technology uses your existing video card to minimize the use of system resources while delivering Ultra HD 4K resolutions. This unprecedented performance makes MST perfect for high-resolution applications such as graphic design, gaming and medical imaging.

Note: When using a DisplayPort 1.1 video card the MSTMDP124DP will act as a splitter, automatically mirroring your video source across all displays. Resolution limitations apply.

The MSTMDP124DP supports plug-and-play installation for a hassle-free setup, and is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Notes: MST shares 21.6 Gbps across all attached displays. Higher resolutions can restrict the available bandwidth with the remaining ports, please see our guideline below for determining an ideal resolution for your setup. Certain graphics adapters have limited MST support and will only output to three displays in total. If more than three monitors are attached, the fourth will be disabled.

The Surface Pro 3, Surface Pro 4, and Surface Book only support the use of three displays in total. If this device is used with the Surface Pro 3, and three external monitors, the built-in touch screen on your Surface will be disabled.

(5 stars) Compact and rugged.

By:
I use a laptop for work and have a two monitor display plugged into the system's dock. I love it. But when i go home, i need something to replicate that, and this hub is just the thing. I can quickly take over my home PC's displays by plugging my laptop into this hub. Great for those work from home days. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

(5 stars) Only uses one port on PC / laptop / etc.!

By:
I had a laptop with a docking station and only one mini displayport input but I wanted three (the maximum my video card supported) so I decided to give the MSTMDP124DP I test run. It really is PLUG AND PLAY! Being digital (displayport) the display is fantastic and the MSTMDP124DP has a small footprint. I would recommend the MSTMDP124DP for a multi display environment. * I received this product for free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

(4 stars) Solid Construction - Good Quality

By:
We’re using this on an older Windows 7 laptop that has a mini-display port to broadcast its screen with live data/information to 4 coworkers sitting in an open office. It’s working great so far. It’s a solid metal construction. If you’re tired of the typical VGA hubs and want something a bit better quality and picture than you can’t go wrong with display port. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

(5 stars) Read specs, know what you want, be impressed

By:
This is my 3rd attempt at buying a DisplayPort that I really liked. I've had nothing but good experiences with StartTech but was enticed by a promotion to get something 'cheaper' the first time and recieved a bad recommendation the second time. I came across this and figured It'd be impresive but was quite jaded. I can't say this loudly enough, it will completely affect your experience. Understand what you are trying to solve for, the technology you have and what you're willing to buy if youre missing it. Assuming you follow those guidelines and this model looks good. BUY IT. I've been burned as I said before and I won't bring up the others, but both were pricier except that one was a promotional item so the price was technically less. Let me walk you through the whole process. It showed up in the mail. I wasn't sure what it was. I opened it. It took about 20 seconds to unpackage. I pulled out my existing disaster and replaced it with this in about another 2 minutes just b/c I was being extra careful. I had to take a call and came back. I was actually infuriated at first b/c I thought I got burned again. FAR FROM IT. It worked so well, it took such little effort I was in shock. If I had to say something bad about it, I'd say I wasn't able to get it to work on my MACS but it works on all of my windows machines. Not only that, it works phenomenally (and I feel like I'm being uncharitable by saying it's "Phenomenal". It's small, light, unobtrusive, remarkably simple to set up (I'll put it this way, I think I could give my grandmother one without any fear of her calling asking me how to get it to work). The documentation in the box itself isn't all that substantial but I'd argue that's a feature not a bug b/c you don't need it. If you do the website offers all you need. Just buy the thing and never worry about it again. Like I said, I'd have to try to find something to dislike and I'm sorry, but I'm too impressed with it to have any desire to engage in such a thing

Response from StarTech.com:
Barry, Customer Support
Hello Lou, Thanks for sharing this with us. What model Surface Pro do you have? The Surface Pro 2, 3, and 4 all have MST functionality. The original Pro does not. Did the MST hub work to enable any external displays or nothing at all? MST supported Surface Pro devices are limited to a maximum of 3 displays (including the internal display). Therefore, there will be a limitation when using with this MST hub. Please get in touch with us directly should you have any further questions.

Experienced a similar problem; Surface Pro 3. I have a single monitor connected through the device, via a DP -> VGA adapter. I suspect this adapter is the issue, but seems odd to me.
