- Works great, easy to use but has limitations- September 29, 2013
This device is great and works flawlessly, but I set it up for a client who uses (2) 27" monitors connected to his laptop. The native resolution of the monitors is 1920x1080 but the maximum resolution of this cable is 1600x1200 so the monitors have to run at a lower resolution which causes them to look a little distorted when compared to the native 1920x1080 monitors right next to it. Also, because of the refresh rate on the device you cannot watch movies, YouTube videos etc on monitors connected to this devices without the video flickering A LOT. These devices are great for static displays or displays which are not updated as frequently as a video image.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Crashed my Computer- January 19, 2014
Bought a new HP Laptop and purchased the adapter to use an external monitor. I loaded the drivers as directed from the manual. I restarted my computer as directed by the software and that is when the trouble started. The computer would not restart, no video, no nothing. Contacted Tech Support and 3 days later they returned my call. They told me to reload drivers from website. I again told them I had no video. She suggested I load it on another computer to see if I get the same problem. I told her I was not interested in having two computers in the shop. Waited too long to return to BB so I threw adapter in trash.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
- Good but not great- January 23, 2017
Installation pretty easy but won't adapt to higher resolution monitors. Highest I could get it was 1680x1050. (I think it defaulted to 1600x900.) My monitor calls for 1920x1080 so the picture is slightly blurred, pages are slightly larger, and the page "swims" when dragged from the VGA screen to adapter screen side. It's viewable, just annoying. I use it for a business monitor but if you're a gamer, I wouldn't get this model unless your screen resolution is lower. Their Tech Support suggested a more expensive model (USB2VGATRO2).No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
