Pros: Fits in 18" Short Rack on wall. Takes standard ATX power supply (but get short depth PS). Uses nice quiet 120mm case fan.

Cons: like all mATX cases, things are a little crowded.

Most Critical Review

not so palooza

SABRENT USB-3HDM USB 3.0 HDMI Video Display Adapter 1920x1080p
SABRENT USB-3HDM USB 3.0 HDMI Video Display Adapter 1920x1080p

Pros: I wrote the five egg review but now after several months of ownership I have to downgrade. Performance became intermittant. Switched to the Sabrent 1611 USB2.0 model that I have prior experience with and performance is now stable.

Cons: see above

Slicker than Snot

SABRENT USB-1612 Multi-Display USB 2.0 to DVI/VGA/HDMI Adapter 1920x1080/1600x1200 High Resolution Windows/MAC
SABRENT USB-1612 Multi-Display USB 2.0 to DVI/VGA/HDMI Adapter 1920x1080/1600x1200 High Resolution Windows/MAC

Pros: Works. Software automatically downloads. Works on WinXP and Win7-64bit. Works on System with Intel HD 4600 Graphics with 3 monitors already to add a 4th monitor.

Cons: Does not work with Matrox video so it did not work with my Supermicro server's built-in Matrox graphics. This is not disclosed anywhere on NewEgg or the Sabrent packaging or on the Sabrent website. But I finally found this info on the DisplayLink.com's website (they make the main chip for this device): "DisplayLink works with all NVidia, ATI and NVidia and VIA graphics cards under Vista / 7. We do not support the SiS or Matrox graphics cards. DisplayLink may not work if there are multiple graphics cards installed in the PC. DisplayLink does not support ATI crossfire or NVIDIA SLI configurations."

Overall Review: I've got four of these little dudes and except for the caution ("Con") above I highly recommend. I'm going to try their USB3.0 model next.

Totally Fine
