Review this product
Top reviews from other countries
However with my 1920x1080 display there was noticeable flickering and lag, maybe this due to the large display, adapter USB connection/chipset or maybe just my laptop - but I have since purchased a similar adapter with the DL-3500 Chipset and USB 3.0 which works much better with my laptop, has almost no lag and can drive higher res screens also. This was from another manufacturer as it was cheaper (see my reviews if you want to know which one) however I notice Plugable do have a similar product so if you wanted to stick with this brand I would suggest getting one of those if you have a large display rather than this one.
Problem is with laptops is they only have one HDMI outlet and one VGA outlet which cannot be used at the same time.
Thought was going to have to get a desktop but this little unit (and it is little) has done the job.
There is a slight delay when running video on the screen attached to the device but as the instructions state just use a different screen i.e. the one plugged into the HDMI or one on your laptop for those kind of applications.
If you have a laptop and need more than a laptop screen and one monitor then this will do the job quite nicely.
However my wife like a lot of other people these days is now working from home. She has been issued with an HP Pro Pad laptop. It uses encrypted communications with her workplace and there is secure software installed in the laptop. The net result of these security measures is to restrict access to the fundamental functions of the laptop and to prevent ad hoc software being loaded. Unfortunately this includes the drivers for the USB display converter. So overall I was disappointed in the outcome but not in the product in itself.
I would buy it again.
Looked at the company's website for support tips and came across the same issue being reported by another user. Was rather disappointed to see that the technical support person recommend buying the more expensive version of the adapter.
