5I 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

5Currently 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 ( ) and it gave a decent picture but I couldn't get the sound to go through its HDMI output. Second best was by ( ) 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: ) go into a 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 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.

5Connected monitor to USB
By ShoppingGeek
I just got a new all-in-one computer with HDMI out but no VGA or DVI out and have two external monitors which have VGA and DVI inputs. I connected one monitor to the HDMI port but had to get this to connect the other one to USB. Then I had to get an HDMI to DVI cable to go from this devices HDMI to the monitor's DVI. Works fine.
