Product Description

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.

This device works fine. I use it in a laptop with 2 external monitor (HDMI + Display Link). In windows 8 and windows 7. I bought before a startech device similar to this and I was not able to make it work in windows 8. I DO NOT RECOMEND BY A STARTECH PRODUCT IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM THE TECHNICAL SUPPORT IS VERY BAD AND ALL THE PROBLEMS ARE NEVER FROM THEIR DRIVERS.But with this product everything worked fine from de begging

My older laptop had a VGA socket so that I could use a similarly aged second screen for flight simulation. Having upgraded my laptop, I discovered there was no VGA socket, yet I was reluctant to replace the monitor which works perfectly. On Amazon's web-site, I thought this adapter would suit the purpose, and took a chance, since its specifications seemed to be just right. The adapter was supplied with a Driver CD, which proved to be unnecessary, since the driver was installed over the internet with no hassle. Then came the big moment - like waiting for a space shuttle to emerge from the other side of the moon. Complete inaction for a short while, then perfection. It has proved to be the same as if my new laptop was equipped with a VGA socket, as was the older one. This adapter plugs into a USB socket, of which there are 4, leaving room for a joystick, etc as well. I should think it would be happy from a USB hub if there were not sufficient USB sockets available. This VGA adapter I would strongly recommend.

Having already bought the DVI Version for use when at home, I suggested we get these at work for a particular task we have to do which needs 3 different software packages on screen pretty much simultaneously. The Device worked straight out of the box with the VGA only mornitors we already have and the display is seamless. Well worth it.

Ordered with some hesitation-- received it very quick-- wanted to add a monitor to laptop-- loading unit was easy-- drivers automatic downloaded. Works well after i got familiarized with instructions. Suggest this to anyone who wishes to fit a further screen to their unit.

I have purchased about 5 of these now for various laptops at work.

Works with USB 2 and USB 3 - i would recommend not using the CD and simply letting the windows installer do the job!

It item looks and acts as described but with some exceptions. I bought it in order to make presentations with my Asus T100 and the driver installation was perfect. But when tried to use it with various projectors it worked most of the time but not always. Sometimes the screen starts flickering and there is no way to stop that - changing screen resolution, duplicate screens, etc. In the beginning I alos had battery drain issues by the adapter drivers but the company updated drivers and now the battery problem is gone. Overall a very nice piece of hardware.

I purchased this device to use it on USB3.0 and USB2.0 systems. Apparently, according to the advertising, it is able to work on USB2.0 systems.
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.

I have previously bought a similar product from another company, the refresh of the screen took 3 seconds, and this happened every time you moved the mouse, it was useless. Whereas this product works perfectly, easy to install and refreshes at a just noticeable rate, but does not interfere with use. Very pleased.
