Connect an HDMI® and DVI-I-equipped display through a USB 3.0 port, for a 1080p HD external multi-monitor solution. The USB32HDDVII USB 3.0 to HDMI® and DVI-I Dual Head Adapter turns an available USB 3.0 port into one DVI-I or VGA port (DVI to VGA adapter included) and one HDMI® output, with support for high-definition 1080p and 1920x1200 video and 5.1 surround sound audio (from HDMI® port only).
The adapter delivers a convenient external video solution that makes it easy to add multi-monitor capability to a USB enabled desktop or laptop computer (optimal performance from USB 3.0, backward-compatible with USB 2.0).
Leveraging the high-bandwidth (5 Gbps) SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface, the USB video adapter functions as a convenient external graphics card that eliminates having to open the computer case for video card installation. The adapter delivers smooth, high-definition content to multiple displays and can be used to mirror your primary desktop, showing the same image on each display, or to extend your desktop onto a second or third monitor to double or triple your workspace and increase your productivity.
The USB 3.0 HDMI® and DVI-I Adapter is backed by a StarTech.com two-year warranty and includes free lifetime technical support.
Barely works on my laptop
Pros: I can successfully use two external displays with my laptop.
Cons: Unfortunately, I cannot use a 4th display with my laptop. According to tech support at Startech, plugging an external monitor into the VGA output of my laptop to add a 4th display (3 external plus one laptop display) likely pushes the NVIDIA Quadro K1000M graphics too far.
Other Thoughts: Since this Startech device is advertised as being able to provide up to 6 additional displays without mentioning that there may be graphics driver limitations, I only give it 2 stars. I'm limited to 3 total displays and have to turn off the laptop's own display in order to use my 3 external displays.
