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

Owning both a mid-2010 13" and early 2011 13" Macbook Pro, I needed a solution to connect multiple monitors to my macs. This worked beautifully!

After installing the driver it was literally plug and play. I am now running a 2560x1440 through my mini DisplayPort and a 1920x1080 through my USB. I could probably switch them if I wanted to but since USB utilizes your CPU to power the monitor I used the lesser graphic intensive monitor for that connection.

One thing to keep in mind is this is obviously a work-around which means if you are doing a lot of CPU intensive tasks you will have a slight slow down. However for day to day browsing and word editing you won't really notice a difference. Your computer will run a bit hotter though but this is normal and expected because the CPU is being taxed. Animations will thus have a slight delay but nothing too annoying. Overall very happy with this solution!

And for those wondering I am able to run these 2 monitors in addition to my Macbook's 3rd monitor without a problem on both my 2011 and 2010 13" macs.

4Works perfectly with my Mac Air now with El Capitan and 2.5 drivers
By Emmessey
I swore I wrote a review already (negative) and came here to update. However, it was either deleted or I have a bad memory (but I remember the review pretty vividly and I was even contacted by the manufacturer.) In any case, when I first got this adapter, I was using it with my Early 2014 MacBook Air running Yosemite to support a second monitor, my first being the Apple Thunderbolt Display. Using the USB port was the only option. It worked well enough to not return but there were two issues. One, there were display distortions I'd describe as a ghosting effect; a gray colored thin bar running parallel to the right edge of any window. I believe this was a known issue as the driver page mentioned "minor" distortions with Macs. Two, there was a several-second lag when using Mission Control, both going into and out of it. It was quite annoying, but Cable Matters sent me a second adapter to verify it wasn't h/w related. Unfortunately, that one had the same issues.

I just updated to El Capitan and when I installed the drivers found that there was a newer version: 2.5 (I was running 2.4 on Yosemite.) I'm glad to say that both problems appear to be resolved. I can't confirm which it was: the OS X update, the drivers, or both, but I'm happy with it. There is no lag and no more ghost lines.
