    Nothing spectacular to be said but it does the trick.
    January 6, 2011 A customer says:
    This is an easy way to run an additional monitor. I work with three monitors at once so I use this in conjunction with a dual vga card. Easy to use instructions and install.
    December 31, 2010 John says:
    Waste of money! Slow response time. Use up a lot of resources on your computer. Laptop: unfortunately the only poor choice for multi-display. Desktop: Absolutely not worth a penny! You are better off installing a graphic card; much easier to configure, half the price and 10 times faster!
    December 25, 2010 FlyoverCountry says:
    This thing worked great so I could project a power point on a screen and still se the "Presenter's View" on my laptop. The only issue I may have is upon shutdown of my…

    Worked just fine. Maybe a little price break would be appropriate, but overall did what needed it to do. Using XP OS.
    December 22, 2010 scporet says:
    We purchased for a dual monitor for one of our employees laptop. Worked just as advertised. Would recommend to all.

    THIS IS AN AWSOME TO SIMPLY ADD MULTIPLE MONITORS.

    November 3, 2010 ChrisR says:
    Works exactly as advertised. Great option for those with no internal video card and a need for a second monitor.
    October 23, 2010 Boltsfan2029 says:
    Easy to install. Did exactly what I needed it to do, which was to hook a 19'' monitor to my laptop - at a reasonable price.
    October 11, 2010 A customer says:
    I used this to add a second monitor to my computer in my office. I use it for general office and internet use. It works great. It was easy to set up and I have had no problems with it. I was worried about some of the comments regarding refresh rates and flickers but I have not experienced any problems like that. I recommend this if you don t have an extra monitor port on your computer.
    October 9, 2010 Jim E. says:
    Could not connect to TV with VGA cable due to constant interruption of signal caused by my laptop VGA connection...I have used this to connect to TV from USB port...While it does add another interface which slows the signal to the TV causes choppy picture, I am able to at least view my laptop screen on my TV without constant interruption...Overall, I am satisfied with this product..
    September 27, 2010 clbish says:
    I bought this cable because work gave me a 10 inch computer, and I needed 2 external monitors, or go blind working 8 hours a day on the small one. The USB to VGA…

    September 14, 2010 namelessperson says:
    Does the job for Windows XP. I tried it on Windows 7 and could not get it to work - I'm ok with that, I'll just use on my XP box where it works great.
    September 9, 2010 BAM says:
    Works as advertised. It's portable and useful for all-in-one PCs without a VGA port.
    August 23, 2010 A customer says:
    This device is good but you may find the display goes grainy after a power outage. Unplugging it from the USB and replugging it into a different USB port will resolve the issue. The hot keys feature will cause your cursor to flip from screen to screen unless you go in and change the options to some key that you never hit in the course of regular typing.
    August 12, 2010 Smitty says:
    I ordered this on a Wed, got it on Monday, installed it on Tuesday, and it has been great since. For work apps with no intence video it works great. True dual…
    August 11, 2010 A customer says:
    I purchased this device to provide my wife a 3rd Monitor for work. She now uses 1 screen from the laptop and 1 monitor connected to the back of the laptop and now this USB device to provide a 3rd Monitor. This device is perfect for what she needed. I have not tried to run any games with graphics ect.. but for general office use. It was easy to setup once you realize not to use windows built in support for dual monitors.
    July 30, 2010 Jer says:
    Works as expected.
    July 19, 2010 HarvardMan says:
    However for word processing or excel spreadsheet usage, there's no problem whatsoever. For the money and ease of use, it's well worth the price. Recommended.
    July 11, 2010 doc says:
    Part and software are seamless and versatile. I can have one screen or 2 to suit my needs.

    Had to shut down Spyware Doctor to install. All software working fine now fine now.
    January 25, 2010 NetworkEngineer32 says:
    The video adapter does the job for the most part, but one of our home grown applications do not run on the monitor connected to the adapter. Another program will show a dropdown menu in the upper corner of the screen instead of displaying the dropdown under the field.

    Pros: Connects your monitor to a usb port
    Cons: Widescreen didn't work on Windows 7.
    AERO gets disabled
    Windows 7 display doesn't notice the monitor
    Windows 7 blue screens if I try to make it my primary display.
    Connects your monitor to a usb port Widescreen didn't work on Windows 7.
    AERO gets disabled
    Windows 7 display doesn't notice the monitor
    Windows 7 blue screens if I try to make it my primary display. Probably a good device if you're running XP, but these drivers need some work on newer operating systems.
