Thanks for sharing your review of our USB2DVIE3. We're sorry for any confusion, we list the supported operating systems on our Technical Specifications. This model is designed for Windows only. Our USB32DVIPRO is supported in Ubuntu 14.04, and 16.04. If using one of those Linux distributions. Thank you.

(5 stars) Got the job done

By:
This product worked great to set up a second monitor at home for my work from home job. I was please that it was easy to set up and a quality product. At one time the screen froze but I unplugged and re plugged in and the problem solved quickly. I was sent this item for free in exchange for an honest opinion. Hands down a breeze to connect and makes my job much easier.

(4 stars) Pretty Satisfied!

By:
I'm pretty satisfied with the adapter, but I do want to note that I received the adapter as a free sample. I think it's pretty self explanatory to set up, but the length of the adapter could be longer. For the most part, the adapter served its purpose, but there were a few times where I experienced display issues!

Hello, Thanks for reviewing our USB2DVIE3 display adapter. We have several very helpful FAQs on our site that may assist in correcting the "display issues" you encountered while using this adapter. You can also speak with our technical advisors directly. They would be happy to help. Thank you

(4 stars) Easy to use

By:
I was pleased with the adapter`s performance. I should mention that I received a free sample of this item to review. Installation was simple and the 2nd monitor worked fine. The USB connection was an easy way to add a 2nd monitor, however this did mean I had one less USB port to use for other things. I also wish the USB cord was slightly longer to allow more options where to place my computer and monitor. Overall I was happy with this adapter, but wish it was also compatible with Mac.

(5 stars)

By:
I received this adapter for free in exchange for my honest opinion, and it was just what I have been looking for. At work, we use up to 3 monitors at a time and with just a laptop at home, I could never really take advantage of our work-from-home option, as switching back and forth between windows is next to impossible for our projects. After receiving this adapter though, I can happily say that my work week is much less stressful now that I have the freedom to work from my home computer. It was very easy to install the drivers and I have not had any issues thus far with performance. It brought up a perfect 2048x1800 display on my second monitor and has remained stable and reliable.

By:
I use this device at work, connected to a docking station that shares 4 users. None of us have any problems. Very happy with it.

(1 star) Don't bother just get a new video card

By:
Bought a few of these for a client that had a mix of workstation and form factors. Thought it would be a easy solution to get dual monitors on all their workstations. The performance of this device is not very good. Users are just coping and pasting text from a word doc to email not like they are trying to game with them. Tech support recommends disabling Aero and all the eye candy features to get it to work somewhat better. I personally wouldn't use it so it's hard for me to sell it to my clients. #shouldofjustgotnewvideocards

(5 stars) Saves using a graphics card

By:
Super little device to cheaply give you a 2nd screen, newer PC's might have display ports, but until then this is great. Very occasionally a browser window from one screen may jump to the other on my w7 machine. I'm not sure what clicking the "fixed position" mode does on the software that came with it. I will buy more for other PC's & laptops.
