I really didn't know that anything like this existed until I saw it. It sounded to good to be true. I received my Plugable USB 3.0 Multi-Display Adapter. My teenage grandson is living with me now, and I thought he would enjoy using these adapters. The contents of the box include the USB display adapter, a DVI to VGA adapter, a DVI to HDMI adapter, a CD with the drivers and user manual, and a quick start guide. This system works with Windows 10, 8.1, 7, or XP. It can also be used with USB 2.0 ports. After opening the box, we installed the software on his laptop from the CD that was provided in the box. After that, we plugged the adapter into his laptop, using the HDMI. (Note: We had to buy an HDMI cord as it is not included.) We then connected it to his large screen tv. He was able to go online and transfer the screen from his laptop to his tv...and the cursor worked for both! He was actually able to stream a movie on the big screen tv, while still playing around on Facebook, etc. on his laptop. Needless to say, you need at least a dual-core processor on your computer. My grandson can do so many things with it. We're still learning and experimenting around. He has all sorts of ideas for it. This is all so impressive to me. My grandson is loving it! I would definitely highly recommend this Plugable Multi-Display Adapter to anyone. If you don't know what to do with it, just ask a teenager! Excellent price for a product that can make your electronics much more useful.

Works great, easy, simple
This graphics adapter works great, very easy plug and play ability. I got this adapter because my downstairs projector does not have an HDMI port and so there was no way to connect my laptop to my projector when I wanted to watch movies on it. This plugs into my usb port and I can use the adapter that it came with to connect the dvi to vga and then connect the vga cable to my projector. I didn't even need to install anything on my laptop, might be because I have connected other monitors to it before but that made it really easy also. I has helped when I have family get togethers or when doing a presentation at work even. The setup is quick and easy, comes with all the adapters that you should need. I tried to have dvi go to vga, then vga to hdmi, but that just didn't work, probably because it can't be done. But either way, this worked as intended and have had no issues and no lag on the connected display either. Great product and would recommend. It will be something that I will keep in my computer bag at all times.
Very Nice Graphics Adapter
The Plugable USB 3.0 Multi-Display Adapter box includes: 1 Display Adapter, 1 Driver/User Manual CD, 1 Quick Installation Guide, 1 VGA Adapter and 1 HDMI Adapter. The protective packaging for the Display Adapter and all the ancillary pieces is an outstanding design that ensures that even in the worst case shipping event that no damage will occur. I unpacked the box and read the quick installation guide. I inserted the CD into my desktop & loaded the drivers as instructed. After removing the protective tape from the Display Adapter I connected the VGA Adapter to the Display Adapter. I then connected the VGA Adapter to a VGA Monitor. The Display Adapter came up in the “Mirror” mode. The image on the second VGA display was identical to that on main monitor. The display quality was as good as the primary monitor. No distortions or flickering was noted. I then changed the mode to the “Extended” mode. I selected the desired content and quickly the selected content appeared on the second monitor while the primary monitor remained unchanged. It is very easy to change back and forth between the “Mirror” mode to the “”Extended” mode.
I then replaced the VGA Adapter with the HDMI Adapter. I connected the HDMI to the HDMI port on a nearby HDTV. Ater turning on the HDTV and selecting port that the HDMI Adapter was connected the output from my Desk Top appeared in very high quality. I played with the Mirror/Extended mode selection and all worked well. I did not test the DVI port, but I would expect that it would work well
This adapter really works well and makes it easy to monitor multiple displays from the desktop.
I definitely give the Plugable USB 3.0 Multi-Display Adapter my hearty recommendation.
I received this Display Adapter at no cost for the purposes of test evaluation and review.
This is literally a plug and play. I had use it both with a desktop & 2 monitors (actually tv's) and when I want a larger screen for the laptop. Two screen are also very handy when I am gaming. I often have my game on one screen and Skype on another.
We bought this for our home computer, we ya e an older pc. We needed a second monitor and this was a great external device. It was super easy to install, we plugged it in, shut the pc down and restarted it. The device was recognized on our pc and we were able to use our monitor right away. I totally recommend it, it's easy to use and it does exactly what it says it's supposed to do!
I really like what could be of this gadget. I thought I was tech savvy enough to install it correctly on my own but I need help. I like being one of the firsts to engage in new technology. I look forward to my tech comes to set it up
Work on computers? You need this.
Not sure why but I thought this Plugable USB 3 Graphics Adapter device had different outputs on each side of it—one side DVI, one VGA and one HDMI. It doesn't show it in the photo so not sure where I got that idea from. Instead it's a single DVI connector with adapters for VGA and HDMI that plug into it. I'd have preferred the prior set up even if you could only use one port at a time as it's usually better to be hardwired in than to have it connect externally. For someone who works on computers in their spare time (or just gets conned into fixing friend's computers), this thing is a godsend. Most computers have at least a few USB ports. Plug this into one of them, install the driver and you can basically use any monitor you want with that computer regardless of the connection type. No need to change out the video card or buy several different adapters—this has it all. The display mirroring and extending is where this little device really shows its stuff. I didn't actually get to test this part at this time, but I will be trying it out as soon as I make room for a dual monitor set up for myself. Obviously it would be perfect for online gaming, especially with games offering rich, realistic graphics. Even just for everyday computing. Suddenly your desktop wallpaper can span across two large monitors and high definition images become submersive, drawing you right in. The only drawback and it's a small gripe is it doesn't come with an adapter for DisplayPort which is a bit more rare and often found on business machines, but it does pop up from time to time.
fun to use...
I received my Plugable USB Graphics Adapter from the Spark Reviewer Program. I thought my teeneage son would enjoy using this adapter. Before using the device you have to install the software on your laptop from the cd they provide you. After doing the installation he plugged the adapter into his laptop, using the HDMI he then connected it to his big screen tv. He was able to go on the internet and transfer the screen from his laptop onto his tv. The cursor moves from 1 screen to the other. He was able to stream a movie on one screen, and scroll through Facebook on the other. He also was able to control his music while playing Fortnite. So many things you can do. We're still learning and experimenting. They are definitely having fun with it! Would also like to add that this adapter DOES NOT come with an HDMI cord. We would definitely recommend this Plugable Graphics Adapter.
Cool tech for computers and projectors
I use this multi-display adapter at my school with a projector. It hooks up nicely and is easy to use. I use a laptop and projector for presentations so the adapter is essential. What is really great is that the adapter has several different adapters you can use making it really versatile. Anything that is plugable wins in my book. For overall adapter needs and is plugable, the Plugable Multi-display Adapter is a great product.
As a student who attends online college courses, I have found this device to be greatly beneficial for viewing my ebooks when using my laptop to write assignments and search the internet for additional information. The ability to connect to monitors has allowed me to work faster and more efficiently. This adapter is easy to install, quick setup capabilities and ready to go in minutes. I don't have time for difficult and convoluted products. This product comes with 2 connectors for multiple equipment use. Speed is very good, the picture is exceptional. VGA and HDMI adaptors included. Backward capable but limited. Can download drivers or use the enclosed disk. USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 connectivity.
This items works well for my situation. I highly recommend it for those who use tablets and need a larger viewable area.
