Does not work with Dell XPS 13
on 27 June 2014
As per a couple of other recent commenters, do not buy this adaptor for use with a Dell XPS 13. The XPS 13 requires an "active" adapter that does the digitial-to-analogue conversion in hardware, but this unit is a passive adapter that requires software support. I don't know if the issue is that Windows doesn't support passive mode, the Intel display drivers don't support passive mode, or if it's something specific to the XPS 13 hardware.
From other reviews, this will work great with a Mac, but don't buy this if you have a Dell XPS 13. Take a look at the StarTech equivalent - it's more expensive, but it is "active" and should work fine with the Dell XPS 13.
