I couldn't be happier with this
By Bryan Shevchuck
I bought this to add a second external monitor form 13' Macbook pro. Installation was a breeze. I ended up needing a newer driver which was available on Display Links web site. After that my computer picked the monitor right up. I barely notice any lagging issues which is sometimes common with USB display connections. I tried playing a video and it was smooth. I am running 2 27' inch monitors along with my Macbooks 13" display. I couldn't be happier with this product

Currently the only USB3 to HDMI device worth your money - at least for Mac users.
By Monica Anderson
The first one of these I ordered was Dead On Arrival. I sent it back and ordered a replacement. The replacement works... and it's such a well done product I'm giving it 5 stars in spite of the first unit being DOA.
It's one of three USB to HDMI devices I evaluated; one was by Etekcity ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00F8OPKLW ) and it gave a decent picture but I couldn't get the sound to go through its HDMI output. Second best was by StarTech.com ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00612ZPQA ) and it handled the sound alright but the video in the Startech would shear every few seconds; it could not handle the bandwidth. Useful as a screen addition for programming or spreadsheets but useless for full screen video viewing.
But when I plugged this device into a USB3 port on my Mac Pro Late 2013 (the black cylinder Mac Pro) I not only got a shear-free picture on the HD projector in the home theater, I also got what looks like 5.1 output through HDMI even though I actually don't have more than two speakers (see below). In the Mac's Audio Midi Setup app (the Icon looks like a little piano keyboard) I can choose "USB3 to HDMI" - a choice I didn't see from any of the competing devices. And when I selected it I was shown six (!) volume sliders for all the 5.1 channels. And sound flows from the Mac, through this device, through HDMI cable, gets converted to optical SPDIF by a Monoprice box and goes to the home theater optically and gets decoded into hum-free perfect sound there.
After 8 months of messing with it my AV setup is finally doing what I want it to do. This part was the missing piece. Four sources (Two Mac pros of different vintages, one PS/3 and an HDMI cable to the home theater that I can plug into a laptop using this beauty: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DOZHL82 ) go into a http://www.amazon.com/Monoprice-105557-Toslink-Digital-Coaxial/dp/B003L14WB8 and its output goes to my Epson projector as HDMI. But the sound is tapped from the selected HDMI and goes over an optical fiber to the theater where it is decoded by http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Optical-Analog-Converter-Adapter/dp/B005DIRI6I into powered speakers.
Using the tiny infrared remote control for the Monoprice box I can select any of my four sources; sound is chosen along with it. Mute button works on all four channels. And I have reason to believe that if I had a 5.1 sound system I could make that work also.

Good converter.. Not perfect but excellent for multiple monitors for the office
MAC BOOK PRO - I used two of these and a Belkin thunderbolt 2 express docking station.. .. currently I only have to plug power cable and 1 thunderbolt cable into my mac and I know have 4 monitors running off my macbook pro retina.. I plugged two of these into the usb3.0 ports on the dock and used the thunderbolt port on the dock with cable to hdmi for third monitor plus the laptop screen (4 screens total) not the greatest response but I only needed it for work and visio's.. works perfectly.. and video quality watching movies is good..
this is exactly what I needed. Not for gaming but perfect for the office.
You will need to download drivers from their website for your mac.. but it was easy and installed instantly. I would suggest you download drivers first and run install package then plug in your monitors.
