IOGEAR lets you add a second display to your notebook or desktop PC even if the installed video card only supports one monitor. This external video card attaches to a USB 2.0 port on your system and a DVI monitor. You don't need a separate power source since the card draws power through the USB port A second monitor opens up new worlds for work or play. Use one screen for the image you are working on and the other for the palette and other tools. See an entire wide spreadsheet without scrolling. Get a wider view of what's going on around you as you prowl the countryside looking for enemies to defeat and Treasure to collect.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat addition

Pros: Great way to add another monitor to your system without a video card - especially a laptop.

Cons: Have to manually update drivers.

Other Thoughts: Bought this for my mother-in-law's laptop as she wanted another monitor. It's been terrific and flawless the entire time she's used it.

2 out of 5 eggsWhen it comes up

Pros: cheap way to attach extra monitors

Cons: On my Asus 6PX58D machine, this adapter only powers up half the time I boot the computer. Installed all the new drivers. I have to unplug the usb cable and reconnect. All my icons get scrambled.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. To better service you and understand your set up, please feel to contact our customer support at 1-866-946-4327 or email us: support@iogear.com. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good card

Pros: Drivers installed in 2 min, without need to reboot. Extra screen (3rd in my case) was configurable via both Windows control panel and Iogear applet in the taskbar.
Runs VIDEO with resolutions of 1600x1200 and 1650x1050.
Tested it on both i7 desktop with USB3 and IBM T61 laptop with USB2.

Cons: heats up a bit, bit you can place it near a laptop cooling fan.

Other Thoughts: My one advice is to run it through powered USB Hub (tested - works), it gets its power directly from usb, and the dinky newer laptops might not supply enough.

5 out of 5 eggsEverything I needed it to be for my work at home set-up

Pros: All I needed was a device to drive a third monitor for my work at home set-up. While I didn't need it for high-end gaming or high quality video playback, it does both competently as well. Set-up was easy and it plays well with windows 7 and Mac OS.

Cons: I haven't found any yet, but I didn't need it to do much more than run another display for work related applications (i.e. no games or video).

Other Thoughts: Why limit yourself to one or two monitors? These things are cheap, easy to use, and will make a world of difference with the addition of another monitor.

3 out of 5 eggsMac users beware

Pros: Nicely built, USB to DVI adapter is incredibly handy. Quality is better than expected.

Cons: DOES NOT FULLY WORK WITH MOUNTAIN LION. I recueced a glorious black screen (no video) when I plug in the device. Iogears website clearly says version 1.8 is mountain lion compatible. I encourage you to google it, you will find it is not. However, they do have (as of today 1/24/13) 2.0 beta drivers that seem to work well with 10.8.2.

Iogear: Don't lie to customers.

Other Thoughts: I gave this product a 3/5 for lying to Mac customers. If it's not compatible with Mountain Lion, just be honest about it.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. The GUC2020DW6 is compatibe with Mac Montain LION as long as you use the updated 1.8 driver directly from the displaylink.com website. There is a beta driver listed on this page however we have not tested this driver so we cannot guarantee results. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This product has been used with a Dell latitude to enable a 3rd screen even though splitters and other "connectors" will not work because the internal graphics card is maxing at 2 screen.

Cons: Max Resolution is a bit low... but client is happy with it.

2 out of 5 eggsMeh ... Meh ...

Pros: Easy video to install. Plug it in and if the drivers are installed you're ready to go. I seriously recommend using the drivers from IOGear's website and NOT the ones that automatically install when you plug the card in. Video is decent, not stellar but very usable, you're not going to get $500 video card performance through a USB 2.0 port no matter WHAT you do. For the price this serves it's purpose BUT ...

Cons: It breaks the nVidia control panel. If you're using OTHER display adapters/cards that are nVidia and have nVidia drivers this will mangle your nVidia control panel. Plug it in, control panel broken, unplug it and the control panel goes back to normal. This is with every nVidia driver I've tried including the very latest Beta drivers. Even tried a clean install of both the nVidia drivers and the driver for this device. This is a deal killer for me. Now this thing sits in my computer tool bag for testing video on machines I'm working on. I can't use it for what I bought it for, which kinda negates it's value.

Other Thoughts: I had an extra monitor laying around so I thought "Hey, why not use this to get one more display?" This is on a very high end computer with 3x video cards and 5 monitors already installed. One of the monitors on this machine is dedicated to my security cameras so I was going to move them to this device, which would give me 6x monitors. It plays the video from the cameras just fine BUT it breaks the nVidia control panel, which I NEED DESPERATELY to control the overscan on the flat screen TV connected to one of the onboard nVidia cards. This messes up my entire display configuration and no matter what I do the drivers for this device WILL NOT play nice with the nVidia drivers. Remove the device and reboot, everything goes back to normal, plug the device in, reboot or not and the nVidia control panel is busted. This fact relegated this device to my computer bag for video testing on other computers I work on. If I need to "swap out" a video card, this is easy to use.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. If you did not install the updated 6.3 driver from displaylink.com we suggest using this driver. To better service you and understand your set up, please feel to contact our customer support at 1-866-946-4327 or email us: support@iogear.com. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.
