2 out of 5 eggsDoesn't Work With Linux/Ubuntu

5 out of 5 eggsPlug 'n' Play for extra monitor

Pros: Plugged in a monitor and it worked. No drivers needed on Windows 7 PC. Cheaper than a dual-head video card.

Cons: Haven't yet tested on remote terminal services - let's hope...

Other Thoughts: Why don't they advertise it more? Had to find out through a friend.

5 out of 5 eggsExtremely Easy Install!

2 out of 5 eggsMostly Works

Pros: Not difficult to install. Win7 recognizes the second monitor (unlike previous model) and allows config through control panel.

Cons: Only lasted ~6 months. Very choppy and can cause some resolution oddities

Other Thoughts: You're much better off going with a dual-monitor supported video card.

1 out of 5 eggsUnusable

Pros: Recognized by my computer.
Displays an image to the monitor.

Cons: Refresh rate is terrible.

Other Thoughts: Using latest driver from manufacturer's website. On what planet did they think this thing was usable?

Immediate RMA.

1 out of 5 eggsNext to useless

Pros: None that I can notice after testing the product. Maybe durability.

Cons: The resolution will disappoint you. The max res is not sufficient for today's large monitors... I used with a Dell 23" U2312HM . I couldn't see myself using this produt for what I purchased it for.

Other Thoughts: I used the device with a Dell 23" U2312HM . I couldn't see myself using this produt for what I purchased it for. I program in C++ and needed this product to use my second 23" monitor to add monitor real estate but had to send it right back to newegg because the product is gabbage based on my opinion. Consider buying one with market based high res and you will be fine.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible

Pros: Ease of use. That is about it.

Cons: Garbage. Utter garbage.

You are better off buying a dedicated GPU for $30. These only have 32mb of video memory and a dedicated GPU will have 512mb for $30.

Display lags, window movement lags, drivers are terrible, display flickers or fails to display at all, hot keys send unintended key presses.

Do yourself a favor and buy a dedicated GPU if you have a desktop.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as it should

Pros: Low cost, easy to install, works as it should

Cons: none
