Got the job done
This product worked great to set up a second monitor at home for my work from home job. I was please that it was easy to set up and a quality product. At one time the screen froze but I unplugged and re plugged in and the problem solved quickly. I was sent this item for free in exchange for an honest opinion. Hands down a breeze to connect and makes my job much easier.
I'm pretty satisfied with the adapter, but I do want to note that I received the adapter as a free sample. I think it's pretty self explanatory to set up, but the length of the adapter could be longer. For the most part, the adapter served its purpose, but there were a few times where I experienced display issues!

Hello, Thanks for reviewing our USB2DVIE3 display adapter. We have several very helpful FAQs on our site that may assist in correcting the "display issues" you encountered while using this adapter. You can also speak with our technical advisors directly. They would be happy to help. Thank you
Easy to use
I was pleased with the adapter`s performance. I should mention that I received a free sample of this item to review. Installation was simple and the 2nd monitor worked fine. The USB connection was an easy way to add a 2nd monitor, however this did mean I had one less USB port to use for other things. I also wish the USB cord was slightly longer to allow more options where to place my computer and monitor. Overall I was happy with this adapter, but wish it was also compatible with Mac.
I received this adapter for free in exchange for my honest opinion, and it was just what I have been looking for. At work, we use up to 3 monitors at a time and with just a laptop at home, I could never really take advantage of our work-from-home option, as switching back and forth between windows is next to impossible for our projects. After receiving this adapter though, I can happily say that my work week is much less stressful now that I have the freedom to work from my home computer. It was very easy to install the drivers and I have not had any issues thus far with performance. It brought up a perfect 2048x1800 display on my second monitor and has remained stable and reliable.
Never had a single problem with it.
I use this device at work, connected to a docking station that shares 4 users. None of us have any problems. Very happy with it.
Don't bother just get a new video card
Bought a few of these for a client that had a mix of workstation and form factors. Thought it would be a easy solution to get dual monitors on all their workstations. The performance of this device is not very good. Users are just coping and pasting text from a word doc to email not like they are trying to game with them. Tech support recommends disabling Aero and all the eye candy features to get it to work somewhat better. I personally wouldn't use it so it's hard for me to sell it to my clients. #shouldofjustgotnewvideocards
Awsome for laptop workstations
Great functionality and ease of use to add multiple monitors to my laptop. My work requires me to travel with my laptop and multiple computers, desktop in the office and laptop for travel, is not an option. While I am in the office I am connected to a base station, providing me with 2 DVI ports. I also have 4 USB to DVI adapters for a total of 6 monitors. This is an awesome resource for multitasking. My teams work progress, my outlook calander, my CRM program, the internet, another computer accessed thru Team Viewer, my start menue / with phone controls and a call log entry window all open at the same time, available at a glance. Only 4 stars because I am having a difficult time displaying video on the monitors thru the adapter. this is a minor inconveniance. If i can get videos to play on all my monitors my rating will go to 5 stars.
Saves using a graphics card
Super little device to cheaply give you a 2nd screen, newer PC's might have display ports, but until then this is great. Very occasionally a browser window from one screen may jump to the other on my w7 machine. I'm not sure what clicking the "fixed position" mode does on the software that came with it. I will buy more for other PC's & laptops.
Super easy install, works fine
Got this for a client who wanted a 3rd monitor on his laptop for sticking outlook on. It's a USB monitor adapter so you can't expect to do anything fancy.. works fine. The install took about 2 minutes and worked properly right away.
Mac NOT supported
Why this company would make only some of their products available for Mac and then some not is beyond me.
