- Macbook Pro- May 5, 2014
I bought this to add a second display to my Startech Thunderbolt dock. However, I didn't realize until I tried to install it that Startech doesn't provide an OSX driver for this device. I was pretty bummed out until I found this article: https://discussions.apple.com/message/19185308#19185308 This did the trick for me. I installed the driver recommended in this article and the adapter now works great. I have this device plugged into one of the USB3.0 ports on a Startech Thunderbolt dock. I now have two HDMI displays connected through my Thunderbolt dock. One connected with a thunderbolt to HDMI adapter cable and the other with this adapter. Not sure why Startech doesn't just support and provide this driver directly. I have a Macbook Pro running Mavericks.
- Does exactly what I needed! This is excellent- April 28, 2017
I have a laptop with just VGA and HDMI. I have two external monitors, one has DVI and DisplayPort, but no HDMI (it's a 1200 res unit), and my other unit has HDMI and displayport but no DVI. Basically didn't have a way to light them both up (can't use the vga and the HDMI from the laptop at the same time (aarrgghh). So, saw this and PRESTO - two monitors both running at 1200 res, it even (by pure fluke I guess) set itself up as my right hand monitor - exactly what I needed. It's brilliant.
- 4th Monitor on Laptop- November 24, 2019
It was hard to get a direct answer about how to get a 4th monitor to work on an intel based laptop. The problem is that the Intel CPU only allows 3 displays, even if you have a dedicated GPU in the laptop because the GPU isn't a full gpu, but just an extra chip that runs through the Intel CPU. Since it runs through the intel CPU, it is limited by the same 3 display output as the CPU. This allows you to run more than 3 displays on a single laptop.
