Overview

This USB-C™ to HDMI® adapter lets you output HDMI video and audio from a USB Type-C™ device such as a MacBook or Chromebook™ laptop. This adapter works with USB-C devices that pass a DisplayPort video signal. It's also compatible with Thunderbolt™ 3 ports.

Ultimate portability

This USB type-C video adapter is highly portable with a small footprint and lightweight design. The adapter is the perfect accessory for your MacBook or Chromebook, fitting easily into your laptop bag or carrying case, which is great for BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) applications at the office.

Hassle-free connection with USB Type-C

This adapter lets you utilize the versatile USB Type-C port on your portable device. USB Type-C is a reversible connector, so it doesn't matter which way you plug it in, the adapter will always work, saving you the hassle and embarrassment of fiddling with your device when you're trying to deliver a presentation.

Astonishing picture quality

At four times the resolution of high-definition 1080p, you’ll be amazed at the picture quality of a 4K monitor or television. The adapter lets you harness the video capabilities built into your USB Type-C connection, to deliver the astonishing quality of Ultra HD to your 4K display. 4K resolution gives you additional screen space to simplify your approach to detailed work such as editing video and viewing large spreadsheets. Plus, the adapter is backward compatible with 1080p displays, which makes it a great accessory for home, office or other workspace applications.

The CDP2HD is backed by a 2-year StarTech.com warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Note: Your USB-C equipped device must support video to work with this adapter.

Frequently Asked Questions

Before You Buy

USB-C is a type of USB connector that is capable of supporting the following:

  • Data transfer speeds up to 10Gbps, if you use USB 3.1.
  • Bi-directional power delivery up to 100W, if both the USB host connection and the device support it.
  • Alternate modes, which deliver different types of data at different speeds. For example, DisplayPort Alternate Mode (DP Alt Mode).

If using Thunderbolt 3 over USB-C, the connection is capable of additional features. For example, Thunderbolt 3 is capable of 40Gbps of total bandwidth. For more information, refer to the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/thunderbolt-3-port-capabilities.

Not all USB-C ports or devices are capable of supporting all of the features listed above, or all of the features at the maximum capabilities. If you require a specific USB-C feature, your USB host connection, cables, and device must all support the feature that you require. For more information about whether your components support specific USB-C features, refer to the information provided by the manufacturers. 

This USB-C device requires that all of the following components support alternate modes:

  • The USB-C host connection (for example, a computer and its port)
  • The USB-C cable
  • The USB-C device (for example, a hard drive docking station)

If your host device includes a Thunderbolt™ 3 connection, this USB-C device will work with your host device.

For more information about the modes that your setup components support, refer to the information provided by the manufacturers.

Installation

This device is plug and play. It does not use any drivers, and does not require any setup tasks other than plugging in the source (for example, a computer) and the destination (for example, a monitor).

Troubleshooting

When you troubleshoot issues with a video adapter, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:

  • Video cables

  • Video adapter

  • Video source (such as a DVD player or computer)

  • Video destination (such as a monitor or projector)

To test your setup components, try the following:

  • Use the cable, video adapter, video source, and video destination in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.

  • Use a different cable, video adapter, video source, and video destination in your setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.

When you test your cables, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • Test each cable individually.

  • Use short cables when you are testing.

When you test the video source and video destination, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • Remove the video adapter from your setup and test to make sure that the video source and video destination work together without the video adapter.

  • Test to make sure that the video source and video destination work together at the resolution that you want to use.

Note: In order for your setup to work properly, the video source, adapter, and destination all need to support the resolution that you are using.

The error “Out of Range” normally means that the resolution being output by the computer is not compatible with the display. Try lowering the resolution to see if that helps resolve the issue.  You may need to connect another monitor or restart the computer or source to accomplish this.

(2 stars) Partially works

By:
I've used this specific adapter with a new Macbook Pro. I have connected to 3 different HP Envy32 B&O displays, and two flat screen TVs. Display quality is on par for all tested displays, but audio is choppy when only connecting to the display sound. TV audio works fine. After testing another USBC to HDMI converter with the same display audio works fine.

(1 star) Didn't work with Toshiba or Lenovo laptops

This adapter did not work with either a Toshiba Satellite or Lenovo Think Pad. Tested cables and monitor and they both worked. Problem is the Startech. The support page on Startech was not helpful. It said the device was plug and play.

Thanks for sharing your experience with us. We hope we can help. This adapter works with USB-C devices that pass a DisplayPort video signal. Since not all laptops with USB-C have this capability, it would be helpful to know the exact model of systems you tried. We also sent an email to you at the address provided with your review. We have Technical Support Advisors available 24 hours, 5 days a week.
