With the adapter you get a bunch of documentation and a cd with drivers. The adapter itself has a DVI plugin while the other side has a USB connector, included in the box is also a DVI to VGA adapter.

The basic function for this device is to act as a videocard, you plug the USB connector into the laptop or computer and the DVI cable from the screen to the adapter.

The adapter that is included lets you run this device with a normal VGA cable or D-sub as its also called.

Installation was very easy and the software was able to setup the screens right away without me having to play around with any settings.

Since normal Windows usage ran without any problems the next stage is to see if we can run some simple games on the screen that hooked up to the adapter.

Gaming was ok, with minor lag. I did not try FPS gaming since I knew it would lag a bit but with normal strategy games it works like a charm. You get used to the slight lagg/delay.

Conclusion:

This device works great and allows you to run several screens on either a laptop or desktop. Price is around 70$ which is not bad thinking a videocard costs around the same, but this is easier to install and swap to other computers.

I have not found any cons so far with the device and I doubt I will find anything either. I guess I would like to have a bit longer USB cable but thats just my personal opinion.

Pros:

+ Easy to use
+ D-sub and DVI
+ Decent price

Cons:
– None this far

    I currently own an MSI N285GTX SuperPipe OC. I’m trying to
    find a second one for SLI, but can’t seem to find one available anywhere. Do
    you happen to have one that is expendable? Even if it’s used, I would be
    interested. I know this GPU is older and outdated now, and I can buy any other
    285 model and make it work for SLI, but I like the look of this MSI card and
    want both to be the same. My case is a showpiece with glass and lots of lights,
    so this is more an esthetic issue for me.

    Thanks!
