  • Summary: Purchased this device and it arrived today. I have a Mid 2014 Macbook Pro retina with the Intel Iris Graphics card. Unlike the 750M, this graphics card can only drive two external displays. Either two thunderbolt or ONE thunderbolt and ONE HDMI. I have three LG 27inch IPS displays that I used just fine with my 2012 Macbook pro with the 650 graphics card.

Device is OK I'd say. This is how to make things work on your Mac

hppnss, Amazon
6 March 2015
  • Summary: Ok, so this is how to make it work correctly on your Mac (for Mavericks at least, didn't test with Yosemite). WARNING: seems like device won't work with Thunderbolt displays, only Mini-DisplayPort Apple Cinema LED Display-like monitors. First thing you have to do is throw away the CD (not literally of course, but you may). Second, ignore everything other reviewers say about getting drivers from some Taiwanese company's website (no longer the case).

Works excellent w/Windows 7 x64 & Dell hardware

Gadget Dude, Amazon
6 March 2015
  • Summary: One big thing though, don't bother with the drivers CD that comes with the display adapter. Instead, go to startech.com/download and look up the driver for 'USB2DVIE3' (this device). The driver bundle from StarTech is named 'Trigger.zip'. I ran the extract and setup.exe to install the drivers first. It'll prompt you to reboot after that. After reboot, I plugged in this device, then hooked it up to the 3rd monitor.

  • Summary: These work as advertised. I've purchases a number of them and used them on a variety of PCs, from older (5 year old+) models to current models and they just work. Note, I'm using them in a business setting with Windows 7 Pro (32bit and 64bit), not with gaming.

  • Summary: I can't believe this actually worked just as a video card. I asked my IT person and he said there is nothing out there that would actually work for laptop but this thing really worked on my laptop. I have Toshiba l755 with windows 7.

Works with Mac Mini (late 2012)

The Vangors, Amazon
20 December 2014
  • Summary: This works great. I'm now supporting 4 1080P monitors on my late 2012 Mac Mini with Yosemite! 1 monitor on Mac HDMI port, 1 monitor, on Mac Thunderbolt port, 1 monitor on StarTech HDMI port, and 1 monitor on StarTech DVI port. This is the most real estate that I've ever had on a computer! The latest driver from StarTech's site mentions OS X Mavericks but not OS X Yosemite, so I was curious if it was going to work.

Works but has its glitches

JVT, Amazon
7 December 2014
  • Summary: It works OK except the primary monitor keeps flickering when the secondary monitor connected with this device is in use. Eg: if I have my outlook inbox open on the primary monitor which nothing on the secondary monitor then my outlook is fine. As soon as I open something on my secondary monitor such as google chrome, my outlook starts flickering. I have played around with the setting and tried different USB ports but so far nothing has fixed it.

Makes my job easier!

C. Case, Amazon
26 November 2014
  • Summary: I usually keep a few of these around for "emergencies", or when that random user just has to have a monitor right away, and these work great. I haven't experienced any of the lag that I was accustomed to with other USB to VGA adapters and it's a great quick and easy solution for adding an additional monitor if you don't want to break open the case!

At last, a simple fix

Fauna Sonden, Amazon
20 November 2014
  • Summary: This is an easy answer to what should be a simple question "How do I add a monitor to my computer?". I have had two different internal cards I had tried; both of them I couldn't get to work. This one was plug-and-play for the most part. The REALLY cool part is that I could use this solution for up to FOUR monitors if I had to! I also don't need an external power source for it, either. What's not to like?

Dual 30" on 11" MacBook Air - Mac OS X 10.9 and 10.10 Yosemite compatibility and comparison

Joe, Amazon
14 November 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this prior to Yosemite when I was on 10.9 and was fearful of upgrading to 10.10 and not having the drivers be compatible. I bit the bullet tonight and fortunate that everything works as before and feels slightly snappier. Here's my current setup: 11" MacBook Air (Mid-2013) with 8GB RAM and 1.7GHz Intel i7 (2) 30" Displays at 2560x1600 resolution with DisplayPort (1) CalTech (http://amzn.com/B00G69FC48) Since the 11" MacBook Air only has one Thunderbolt, but...
