4 out of 5 eggs Capable for the price 06/08/2012

This review is from: Rosewill RCAD-11002 USB to HDMI Adapter

Pros:

Used on a MacBook running OS X, works well for a dual external monitor setup. Seen fairly readily by VMWare Fusion as well. Much less expensive than other options that create a single device from two monitors.

Works well with low-refresh uses. If you have a mostly static window, this works great.

Cons:

As others have noticed, you're not watching video on any seriously sized monitor over this thing. Refresh rate is like playing Doom 4 on a PowerPC. Any seriously detailed image will suffer serious lag.

So great for stuff like email, maybe IM, or, for me, a browser holding the page I'm coding. Not good for anything constantly moving or giving you feedback you need to see in real time. Maybe similar devices using USB 3.0 will solve this, but this one ain't it.

Other Thoughts:

For the price, it's a great way to add a second external monitor to a 13" MacBook, which only supports one via hardware. Very inexpensive, and a great real estate extension for low refresh windows.
