Very satisfying addition to laptop
Pros: Easy to use.
Other Thoughts: I had to download updated drivers for Win 8 but no biggie. Once installed this worked great.

Pros: I needed to add a 3rd monitor to my wife's computer and was limited to 3 approaches. I could get a PCI-e 1x video card, a USB monitor, or a USB to DVI adapter. Having bought the GWC USB 3.0 to DVI Adapter AN3420 for my work computer and having good results with it, I decided to try the Koutech adapter. Its specs are similar to the GWC and its a few dollars less. The Koutech works well and we were able to watch 1080P YouTube videos on the monitor connected to the adapter without any stuttering.
Cons: I expected the Koutech to be able to handle Blu Ray playback but it does not. Looking at DISPLAYLINK.COM, I found out that only a few adapters handle HDCP. Newegg does sell some of the models that can do this. Its not important in my wife's setup but its worth mentioning it in case someone expects the adapter to be capable of something it is not.
Other Thoughts: Comparing it to the GWC AN3420, the Koutech seems to be just a bit cheaper built but that wouldn't stop me from getting another one.
