Overview

This USB 3.0 to VGA video adapter works as an external video card, enabling the USB port on your computer to output video to a VGA display at 1920 x 1200 resolution. The adapter also features on-board driver installation, which means the adapter will work when you connect it, even without a software disc or Internet connection.

Save time and hassle with on-board driver installation

For the ultimate in hassle-free installation, this USB video adapter features on-board drivers which prompts for installation as soon as you connect the adapter to your Ultrabook™ or laptop computer. This means you can maximize portability by never requiring an installation disc or Internet connection to install the device.

The adapter is optimized for use with USB 3.0, but for added compatibility this adapter is also backward compatible with USB 2.0 computer systems supporting an 800 x 600 resolution at 60Hz.

(2 stars) Slowed down the video of all monitors.

By:
I installed this on my machine and the mouse and other response times of my machine slowed down. My mouse now stutters across the screen never moving smoothly. It is plugged into a USB 3 port and I am using a 7th Gen I5 processor with 8GB of RAM. If I unplug the device my computer works normally, When I plug it in everything slows down. Running Windows 10 Pro. I just use this PC for word processing and excel and other low video required programs. Even reducing the resolution on the monitor did little to help the issue.

The product is good and meeting the requirements if it is hooked up to one monitor. But, if you have dual monitors, the adapter is not picking up sometimes. You have remove the USB and put it back to look for the second monitor. Other than that, no issues and it is working fine. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review. Thank you

(1 star) Wont Use This Any More

By:
I tested this USB to VGA adapter using a couple different laptops and after some testing I determined that I will not use it any more. The adapter comes in a box the size of a couple Blu-ray disk cases. The adapter is slightly longer than the length of my hand and is made of a smooth plastic. I noticed that it didn't feel as sturdy as other StarTech products and is a little light. When I connected the adapter to my computer, I heard the OS chime that something was connected but nothing ever happened. I looked at the manual (which I never had to do before for StarTech adapters). The adapter has a built-in USB drive "FL2000DX" with the drivers needed to get started. I installed the included software "Fresco Logic Inc." and I then had to reboot. After I was able to connect and begin using the VGA port. The video from the adapter was slow as video lagged slightly compared to my main screen. Later I determined that not only did the installer load a driver "Fresco Logic IDDCX", it also installed its own software and put itself in the start-up items on my computer. In these days of viruses and backdoors, it doesn't make sense to risk my computer or network with this software. A few weeks after using this adapter, I noticed my computer running slowly and I uninstalled the Fresco software to get my computer running smoothly again. I was hoping to use this product regularly but I can't put my network at risk with this untrusted and unstable software. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

Thanks for sharing your experience with us. We're very sorry that the product didn't meet your expectations and we'd like to help. We would like to assure you the driver installation is safe to install and does not require significant system resources. For best performance, we recommend using the adapter with a modern, dual-core computer with 4GB of RAM (or better) and an available USB 3.0 port.

(3 stars) Not easy

By:
I receive the startech VGA video adapter as a free item for my honest review. It was not as easy as I thought it was because it was my first time using an adapter on my television from my computer. I still had to have my son help me because no directions were sent with it. But as soon as my son showed me who is 12 years old how to get everything together it was easy. If you`re not super technical person like myself just make sure you have someone that`s there to show you how to use the product and then you`d be able to use it successfully.

Hello, Thanks for sharing your review with us! We appreciate the feedback. Outside of the quick start guide found in the packaging of the USB32VGAV, we do have many helpful FAQs on our website which can help guide you through installing the drivers for this adapter. They can be found by clicking the support tab below the pictures of the adapter. We are glad you and your son were able to get the adapter working in the end and should you need anything else, please do not hesitate to contact our technical advisors for assistance. Thank you

(1 star) Was not compatible with Machine

By:
After looking through the inventory I found this product which seems like the perfect solution for the new computers that were going to be changed out at my job. It's both the device AND the drivers; no need to store a disk, or hunt online for each new computer. We ordered them and attached them to the new computers but they did not work. No solid explanation as to why, it just says it's not compatible with the video card. More than likely have to return them and get an older model which we do know works with the machines. This product did a major hit on our time and productivity.

Hello, Thank you for reviewing our USB32VGAV USB 3.0 to VGA video adapter. We are sorry to hear you are having issues with the unit, and we want to help resolve them. It seems you have already been in contact with our Technical Advisor team. Were you able to ensure that your computer is up to date with the latest video card drivers? You should be able to find drivers on your computer manufacturer’s website. If you happen to have an aftermarket video card installed in your machine, please be sure those drivers have been correctly updated as well. It would be best to ensure your system is up to date with the latest drivers and service packs as well. We would like to point out that if you do not have administrative privileges to install driver updates, then this adapter will most likely not install correctly. Administrative access will only be needed for the initial driver installation when you first plug in the device. We would also appreciate more information regarding your setup in order to provide better assistance. Are the computers that you tried with the adapter the same make and model? If so, are you able to test the adapter with another system to see if results vary? It would be our pleasure to continue assisting you, so please feel free to contact us and kindly reference case number 363-215789. We would also be interested to know which video cards you tested the adapter with. Thank you, Customer Support, StarTech.com http://www.startech.com/techsupport
