1 out of 5 eggsToo choppy for movies

Pros: Convenient form factor. Would be wonderful for the new Mac Pro when you need more screens than it supports... if it worked. It outputs HDMI sound information just fine from the Mac.

Cons: Any HD movie or HD youtube video that I'd like to watch is unwatchable. The picture tears and shears and is completely unacceptable. It's not a matter of degrading over days, it was this way from first attempted use.

Other Thoughts: This would be great for multi-monitor programming or spreadsheet tasks except that if that's what you want this for, buy a UHD screen for $399 with 4 times the pixels rather than more HD screens, which is the max that this supports. I wanted to use it for the projector for my home theater to watch movies on since that's the only screen size it can handle but HD movies are the one application it can't handle.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with USB 2.0 through USB hub!

Pros: Was looking to add a video input to my keyboardless Samsung 700t dock, I plug this into a USB hub and I'm getting 1920x1080 on my monitor. Best part about this device is there is very little lag, and I'm having no issues with Windows 8.

Cons: None so far

2 out of 5 eggsSolid performance, terrible driver

Pros: Fast response time, decent resolution

Cons: Numerous. The driver glitches out after a few hours to days and causes the top row of number keys to begin maximizing the window on 1, 2, 3, etc. There is no way to disable this behavior other than to log off and on. The StarTech monitor will not go to sleep with the others, meaning it continues sending a dark signal to the monitor and pulling 100% power. The latest driver mitigated the fist problem by drawing out the time between episodes but it requires resolution. Drivers are not automatically updated - you need to go hunting for them.

This feels like an alpha release.

Other Thoughts: Do yourself a favor and pick up the EVGA UVPlus+ 39 (does not currently support mac). EVGA makes a true 5-star solution with only angry OSX users dragging down the ratings with cry-baby one-star reviews.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid this, especially if you have Optimus

Pros: Uh, none if you have Optimus. I would look for an alternative product even without Optimus.

Cons: Did not work with Optimus period. It also possibly corrupted the OS. Drivers on CD did not work with Windows 7 64-bit. Misleading product description on company's website says, "the adapter functions as an external graphics card" which clearly is NOT the case.

Other Thoughts: These cards simply do not work if you have a system with Optimus as on-the-fly switching causes the adapter to "lock up" and freeze the monitor to which it is attached. The product description from the manufacturer says it functions as an external graphics card, which is not accurate since all it does is run an external monitor from your existing card. Drivers from the CD did not work; I had to download latest drivers to work but even then, it only worked for seconds before adapter would freeze the screen. StarTech tech support couldn't fix the issue and suggested it was due to Optimus technology. Even worse than not working, once the StarTech adapter's drivers were installed, attempts to upgrade the notebook's videocards resulted in blue screens which persisted until the StarTech drivers were uninstalled. At this point, however, I can't even disable Optimus and boot with solely the NVIDIA chipset without bluescreening, indicating possible OS corruption.

If you have a Thinkpad and need multimonitor support, the Lenovo docking station works brilliantly and is a far better option.

3 out of 5 eggsProblems with Thinkpad Onscreen Display

Pros: Works as claimed, simple installation, easy way to get HDMI output for laptop.

Cons: Driver for this product causes Thinkpad Onscreen Display module to crash during Startup. No Onscreen display of volume, screen brightness, etc. Removing software and rebooting brought it back.

Other Thoughts: I have reported this to Startech support. If they can't fix it I'll go back to the Diamond BVU195 I was using - it did not have this problem.
