Summary: I had wanted to add a monitor to my network and this Adapter is great. Very clean resolution on my rather dated monitor. I don't know how I got along at home with only one monitor for so long.
Summary: I ordered this for a half-height windows 7 system. Once I installed the driver, rebooted and connected it to a second monitor, it worked fine with no problems. One caveat. I've only been using it for a few days. I can't speak about the longevity of the product, but considering it's a "no-moving part" item, it should last a long time.
Summary: I returned this product as their tech people told me that it was not compatible with the drivers that I was already using. You might want to check what mfg drivers you are using before you purchase. No other issues.
Summary: i could not fix the situation. i wanted to get my notebook working with a external screen, because the internal graphic chip of the notebook has a damage and creates image interference. because of that damage, the windows operating system is running only standard graphics driver. now the usb external video card needs some driver performance which is not supported by windows because it is running that simplistic standard graphics driver.
Summary: stopped working within a week. vendor tech support did not respond to inquiry in promised time. had to return it for a refund. i install and maintain software for a living. so unlikely that i wasn't getting the correct drivers or whatever.
Summary: I have a Gateway Laptop (model number MT6456) that I have been running with one extended monitor, a Dell LCD Monitor (model number E228WFPc) using the serial connection. I used this StarTech adapter to add a second extended monitor, an AOC LCD Monitor (model number TFT22W90PS) using the serial connection. So, I am running three monitors. It was a little confusing when loading the drivers. I had to try three times to load the drivers, .... third time was a charm.
Summary: This product makes your home monitors just like the top dollar systems we use in my office. I don't even have the same brand of monitors and the system still worked! I am so glad that I was told about this product, and the ease in starting my own dual-monitor system at home.
