(5 stars) Upgraded from the older VGA version

By:
Well what can I say about this product? Simply that Startech have once again delivered a great device that gives the ability to easily add extra monitors to a laptop or desktop. I had previously been running the older VGA versions for a number of years and I have to say they worked flawlessly. My reason for buying the newer ones is that I upgraded my monitors so thought that I would take the time to upgrade the cards as well. I have been using these now for over a year with no issues. I have 4 of these cards connected to my personal laptop. I can also unplug them and plug them into my work laptop with no issues either. Simply if you want an easy way to add more monitors then buy these. I know next time I swap my monitors in a year or so I will also be upgrading the video cards to the 4K ones as the Startech USB video cards have not let me down over the last 7 years I have been using these and their predecessors.

(5 stars) Does exactly what I needed! This is excellent

By:
I have a laptop with just VGA and HDMI. I have two external monitors, one has DVI and DisplayPort, but no HDMI (it's a 1200 res unit), and my other unit has HDMI and displayport but no DVI. Basically didn't have a way to light them both up (can't use the vga and the HDMI from the laptop at the same time (aarrgghh). So, saw this and PRESTO - two monitors both running at 1200 res, it even (by pure fluke I guess) set itself up as my right hand monitor - exactly what I needed. It's brilliant.

(4 stars) Macbook Pro

By:
I bought this to add a second display to my Startech Thunderbolt dock. However, I didn't realize until I tried to install it that Startech doesn't provide an OSX driver for this device. I was pretty bummed out until I found this article: https://discussions.apple.com/message/19185308#19185308 This did the trick for me. I installed the driver recommended in this article and the adapter now works great. I have this device plugged into one of the USB3.0 ports on a Startech Thunderbolt dock. I now have two HDMI displays connected through my Thunderbolt dock. One connected with a thunderbolt to HDMI adapter cable and the other with this adapter. Not sure why Startech doesn't just support and provide this driver directly. I have a Macbook Pro running Mavericks.
