(5 stars) It works!

By:
My computer tech guy said it couldn't be done, said you could not connect a second monitor to my USB 2.0 port, after trying one purchased online from China. Well, this StarTech adapter proved him wrong! Setup was simple, and my second monitor works great! It was very easy to shop for it on the StarTech website...excellent descriptions of your items and their capabilities.

Since I connected a second monitor, thanks to Startech USB2VGAE2, I tripled my poductivity. I am a professor, and it was so easy reviewing student papers on one screen and posting my comments and grades on another screen. Now, I do not have to open and close windows, like before.
