Caution: Stay Away! Drivers wiped out my computer, very rude customer service offers no help
This review is from: Tripp Lite U344-001-HDMI-R USB 3.0 to HDMI Adapter
Pros: None, doesn't work and wiped out my computer.
Cons: I purchased two of these adapters. According to the product specs, my computer met all software requirements (I'm on Windows 7) and exceeded all hardware requirements. After installing the drivers that came with the adapters and restarting my computer, my computer would blue screen at startup, and would not launch into Windows at all. Luckily, I had a recent full backup of my computer, and had to do a complete system restore from a backup of before these drivers were installed in order to even get my computer to start again. My computer would not even let me launch into Safe Mode, so had I not had a full backup and done a complete restore, I'm not sure I could have gotten my computer working again.
Other Thoughts: I will never purchase any Tripp Lite product again. Having customer service that is rude and offers no assistance to consumers doesn't fly in my book. If you do decide to purchase anything from them, make sure you have a *COMPLETE* system backup on hand before attempting to install any software or drivers they provide... you may need it.
