5 out of 5 eggsExcelent for 3+ monitors

Pros: Amazing device. Bought about 5 of these over the past while to add 3rd monitors for my users. So much simpler than going though the compatibility pain of a PCI video card, and install takes a minute. Windows 7 autodetects drivers and runs with no issues! No reboot required!

I use these to power 19 or 20 inch monitors, no lag. Performance is great.

Its even magnetized so you can hang the device on a metal part of a desk.

Cons: New egg discontinued.... Bring these back!!

USB cord is a bit flimsy feeling. I would not surprise me if it died one day, but it is a modular cable so you can replace the cable without replacing the adapter.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Very quick to setup. Just plug it in and windows loads up the drivers. Once the drivers were installed the second monitor popped up in extended desktop automatically

Cons: I have seen that if you use the DVI to VGA adapter that is included, sometimes the second screen lags but not by much.

Other Thoughts: Love the fact that the box is magnetic so it can be stuck to the side of the machine so it can be hidden a little bit.

1 out of 5 eggsdevice not recognized

Pros: None that I can see, it does not work

Cons: It will not work with drivers provided with the device nor with downloaded drivers from EVGA site. All troubleshooting failed. Apparently, the device is faulty or incompatible with some Windows 7 systems

Manufacturer Response:

Hi,

There are no known issues with this product and Windows 7, can you please contact us at 888-880-3842 so we can work directly with you?

Thanks,
Jacob

5 out of 5 eggsGood Office Product

Pros: Works good for word, excel, or other slow moving programs. I can't tell any difference between this and the other monitors I have, even if I am typing really fast.

Cons: Not for gaming or movies, If you are dragging around large windows on the screen, it gets choppy.

Other Thoughts: Max Resolution is 1680 x 1050. I am using this on a 27" monitor that I recently purchased. I am running this on a computer with a single core AMD chip, 2GB of ram, and XP.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks like a dream

Pros: Works better than advertised. The description states that its max resolution is 1600 x 1200, however it displays at 1920 x 1080 on my monitor. Color reproduction is decent despite the fact that you cannot adjust it to the degree that you might were your monitor connected to a VGA card. Getting it to work right on Windows 7 is extremely easy.

Cons: The color cannot be adjusted like the other two monitors that I have connected to my ATI 4870, so color correction is a bit of a problem. There is a slight bit of lag in video and other applications. I haven't tried any sort of gaming on the monitor, but it doesn't appear to be friendly to that sort of thing.

Other Thoughts: We have two monitors running off of a Radeon 4870, one of which is our television. We needed a second monitor but didn't want to have to use a dual gpu setup. This solved that problem nicely and with almost no hassle. I highly recommend this product.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised!

Pros: I use this at work for an extended desktop. The res. is great and the install was rather simple. Dont do like I did and forgot to use the CD. @_@ Your going to need it. The software come with its own monitor controls witch I found useful. It also allows the use of the Windows software as well. Also tested on mirror display as well.

Cons: For some reason, using the same brand monitors at the same res. the color on the usb monitor is dimer. Did switch the monitor and got the same effect with the 2nd configuration.

I find that when running extended desktop with a lot of programs running at the same time that the usb monitor runs slightly slower. Only noticed under heavy load.

Other Thoughts: Currently running Windows XP Pro SP3 on my work comp. I cant tell if this would be good for gaming or not due to lack of testing. But if your looking for an easy, transferable way to extend your desktop to another screen, this is the way to go!

5 out of 5 eggsEasy Install, Easy Use

Pros: Easy to install and use and reliable. It's greatly improved my efficiency by providing the second monitor without having to update my video card. GREAT resolution, image quality is tops.

Cons: A little slow on the image refresh response, cursor moves slower than on main display

Other Thoughts: This is one of those things that makes you go, "why did I wait so long?" It makes working in multiple programs so much easier and editing multiple documents is a breeze! Reference doc open on one monitor, working document open on the other, copy and paste is painless and FAST!

5 out of 5 eggswho needs instructions?

Pros: Loaded cd drivers and plugged everything in - no issues at all with XP load on Dell Latitide E4300. Plugged the usb into the docking station port. No reboot issues, no flickering issues. Not sure if slight color difference between monitors is due to device or new monitors, just adjusted the monitor.

Cons: Not sure why portable leather holster is needed, most of my users don't carry around dual monitors in their laptop bag. Swapped the retractable USB cable, retracts when you barely move it.

Other Thoughts: unbelievable delivery from Newegg ordered after work, arrived the next morning....would like to compare to the latest evga 19 model that Newegg doesn't carry yet.

4 out of 5 eggsJust got this in the mail today....

Pros: This was really easy to set up. I have windows 7 and alot wont work with it but this does. I downloaded the drivers from the website then plugged it in and about a minute later the screen came on. Does what it says it will and gave me use of my third monitor without having to spend alot of money.

Cons: when a page is loading the screen will flicker. not go black or anything but just flicker then it'll stop flickering once its loaded the page. Not a big deal for me since i mainly use the 3rd monitor to look at charts. Its not much of an eye sore in my opinion but had to point it out.

Other Thoughts: For the price im extremely happy. I've got the use of a 3rd monitor without having to buy a new graphics card and spend hundreds of dollars. It works with windows 7 so if your looking for something compatible this is it. Lastly if you have an issue with the drivers on the cd just go to the website and download from there. I think the ones on the site are more up to date.
