Featuring the latest and highest performance USB graphics technology in the smallest package available, the Plugable USB 3.0 to VGA graphics adapter lets you connect an additional VGA display or projector to your Windows-based laptop or desktop via SuperSpeed USB 3.0 or USB 2.0. Add up to six additional displays (one adapter per display) with USB's plug-and-play ease. Multiple monitors enhance productivity by enabling the use of separate monitors for different documents or applications, for more efficient multitasking and document editing.
Specs and Performance
Highest available USB graphics performance on both USB 3.0 (5 Gbps) and USB 2.0 (480 Mbps), using DisplayLink's new DL-3500 chipset. Supports VGA displays with resolutions up to 1920x1080. HD 1080p motion video via USB 3.0 (limiting playback to a 480p or 720p window is recommended for USB 2.0). USB graphics uses your system's main CPU and GPU for graphics rendering - we recommend playing 3D games on your main GPU attached display.
Supported Operating Systems
Windows 8.1/8/7 64/32 bit, XP SP2+ 32 bit only - We recommend downloading DisplayLink's newest driver.
Mac is not supported due to significant limitations in the operating system.
Requires Intel / AMD / nVidia main GPU and driver with Windows Aero enabled. USB graphics requires dual core or 2 Ghz or better CPU for best performance. Not compatible with ARM-based Windows (MS Surface). Windows RT, Vista Home Basic, Win7 Starter Edition disable multiple monitors and are not supported. No supported drivers are available for Linux at this time.USB graphics devices with drivers from different chipset vendors (MCT, SMSC, DisplayLink, etc.) should not be mixed on the same system.
In the Box
Plugable USB3-VGA graphics adapter, 1.5 foot USB 3.0 cable (compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports), drivers CD, quick install guide.

Works with USB 2 and USB 3 - i would recommend not using the CD and simply letting the windows installer do the job!
Well, the true is that it does not work on my USB2.0 systems (none of them). I have used other Displaylink based products in the past with success but this is not the case. The unit was returned to Amazon.
