Where To Buy

Overview

The USB32HDPRO USB 3.0 to HDMI Adapter lets you add an HDMI display to your computer through a USB 3.0 port, providing a cost-effective and convenient way to expand the video capabilities of your Mac® or PC computer system.

USB 3.0 Bandwidth, High Definition Performance

With USB 3.0 support, this external video adapter delivers the bandwidth needed for accelerated High-Definition video performance, capable of outputting video resolutions up to 1920x1200 / 1080p. Even if your current computer doesn’t have a USB 3.0 port available, the USB32HDPRO is backward compatible with USB 2.0, so you’ll be able to connect your HDMI monitor to your computer and be ready for when you upgrade to a USB 3.0-equipped system.

Easier Multitasking, More Productivity

Add the screen space you need to simplify multitasking and maximize productivity, without even opening your computer case. Some computer systems, including MacBook® and Ultrabook™ laptops and small form-factor desktops, are too compact to install an internal video card. A USB display adapter offers an easy workaround, performing as an external video card that only requires an available USB port to mirror or extend your desktop onto another display.

DisplayLink Plug-and-Display Certified

Installation has never been easier. When you connect this DisplayLink Plug and Display certified adapter to a web-enabled Windows® 10, Windows® 8 or Windows® 7 computer, it automatically downloads and installs the most up-to-date drivers for you, so you won’t have to manually download or install any software.

The USB32HDPRO is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Recommended System Requirements:
CPU: Quad Core 2.4GHz or Higher (i5 recommended)
RAM: 4GB or higher

Applications

A compact, lightweight solution for traveling business associates using USB 3.0-capable laptop PCs, enabling connection to a secondary display/projector

Add an additional video output to computer systems with no room for expansion, such as laptops, ultrabooks, MacBooks, and compact form factor desktops (point of sale workstations)

(3 stars) Not Quite Compatible with Mac OSX 10.12 Sierra

By:
Issues with the new Mac OSX 10.12 Sierra. Startech does seem to have a beta driver released currently but it only partially fixes the video issues. While moving windows across screens the window will turn black (or white) in most cases with some video screen tearing within the window which also seems to crash Safari. They did fix the choppy mouse cursor though which is good but the windows are still a mess. An ETA on when this would be fixed would be great. Just to mention the adapter worked flawlessly before the Mac OSX update and still works well on Windows 10 and below.

Barry, Customer Support
Hello, Thanks for sharing this review with us! We appreciate the feedback and are happy that the current drivers did address some of the issue you are having. Currently, as of 10/25/2016, we do not have an ETA from DisplayLink on newer OS X/macOS drivers, but we are working closely with them. As soon as those new drivers are available, we will let you know via the email address provided with your review. Thank you for your understanding and we hope we can clear this up soon.

(5 stars) Worked great with my Mini Mac Quad Core Computer!

By:
I just purchased this product today, and installed it on my Mini Mac Quad Core Computer. Since the computer doesn't have a disc drive, I visited StarTech.com, searched for the product by ID, clicked on the support tab, and downloaded the zip file. I determined that I have OS X 10.10.2, and so I double clicked on the installed the .dmg file in the "OS 10.6 - 10.10" folder. After it installed, it rebooted the computer. I logged back into the computer. I then connected the USB device, it took maybe 30-40s for the computer to recognize the USB device. I went to System Preferences, and changed the Display setting to turn off mirroring, and I was set. Easy as pie!
