It works!!!!

Bought this to put an extra monitor on my widows 8.1 laptop. Did not work out of the box. Tech support was great- I needed to download the driver from the web- the one on the CD did not work. He helped me set it up and now it is all I had hoped for. GREAT Product, great job. Great

Hi Carl, thanks for following up. It's always best to install the drivers from our website, since they will be the most up-to-date versions available. Glad we could help.

Not compatible with Windows 8 ??!?

I have 4 of them, upgraded my windows and now for nearly a month can't use them because they do not provide Windows 8 driver !! Absolutely insane. Paul

Thank you for your feedback. We have recently updated our drivers for this product online to support Windows 8 and 8.1. It is possible however, that the drivers provided on the CD still contain an older version. We suggest discarding this CD in favour of the drivers posted online. We also highly recommend that you update your primary video card drivers direct from their source. If you have any further concerns, please contact us at 1-800-265-1844 or support@startech.com

Excellent Product

Seamless and error free installation. Works great. Thinking about adding another monitor for a total of 5 on my desktop workstation. After using multiple monitors, I find it very confining and restrictive to use just one!

Does exactly what is advertised

A month ago, I received a new laptop at work (Dell Latitude E7450). It is amazing, except one thing: my old workstation had dual video adapters, which allowed me three external monitors (two via HDMI, one via VGA, using a docking station). The new one could only do two at a time. I purchased the USB2VGA from Startech, and it solved my problem by allowing me to have a third monitor attached to my laptop. Drawbacks: the fonts don't look as smooth, and I had to disable hardware graphics acceleration to make certain MS Office and browser products display correctly. Other than that, it works very well - I don't need any super video performance, so for my daily use this did exactly what is needed.

Perfect

I am not an it person. Simply read on line how to easily hook up a second monitor to my home computer. Person recommended using an external USB VGA adapter. I made sure the connection would work with my monitor, purchased adapter, hooked up, setup and everything worked perfect. Couldn't have been easier. Perfect.

Works great, but don't, touch your touch screen

Does what it's supposed to do, just one possible bug in the latest software that can cause a problem for you. If you have a touch screen computer, don't touch the screen on your computer, because the mouse arrow or pointer (whatever it's called) Will disappear. It disappears on my windows 10 computer as it is intended to do when you use the touch screen, then comes back when you use the mouse again. However the pointer or arrow will not return on a non touch screen monitor that is hooked up to your computer using this product, and I had to restore the computer and reinstall the software to fix the problem since that's the only way I knew how to. So if you don't want to do a bunch of unnecessary work, don't touch your touch screen on your laptop, notebok, or tablet, while using this product if you have the same problem I do, other than that works great.
