Before buying this product I read all of the reviews. Nervous about getting this device for my Mac Mini I dove in and ordered it. It came in a timely manner. It is small. Great. It is easy to set up, just plug it in. Great. But when I turned my monitor on. Nothing. Yikes.... Another Mac person who bought this product warned that there were not any MAC drivers on the CD that came with the device, or on the Diamond website. Check. He is right. That is still true as of this review (9-30-10). But being like a pit bull with the Internet, I knew I could probably figure it out which is why I ordered it anyway. I figured I would give it a try being somewhat optimistic in general.

The other reviewer was definitely correct. BUT..... here is the great news! when I opened the device I noticed that printed directly on the device was the company name "Display Link." Aha! They might have the drivers. Sure enough. The drivers were there on their website. Here is the url for the MAC drivers:http://www.displaylink.com/support/mac_downloads.php I downloaded it and voila! My monitor came on. I was thrilled. So alas, like many new devices these days the hardware company makes one thing, and the software is developed by another company. So wonderful Mac User, don't despair. The product is there. Its a great little product. Without the USB adapter there would be no way I could run two screens on my mac mini. My mini is about 3 years old so it only has one port for a monitor. I use the screens for Pro Tools and recording music in my home studio and the device is working great!!! Good luck!

ADDENDUM, 8 months after initial purchase. Not sure I can recommend this as highly as before. I still use two of these on a daily basis, to create the 3-screen display described below. But I've noticed that the screens will sometimes give a big blink, go black for a few seconds and when they recover, several things will go haywire: Resolution becomes wrong, portrait/landscape setting is wrong, and the desktop icons will resort themeselves into nonsensical locations. Usually I can just restart the computer and everything will recover, but not always. I think it's a hardware/software conflict - I believe the Nvidia video controller built into my motherboard is trying to get control of the USB displays, and this seems to mess things up. You may not have the same issue. The restart-fixable fault occurs about every 8 days, whereas the major fault where everything gets fouled up occurs about every 2 months. And one other fault - sometimes one of the screens will suddenly begin to display a series of primary colors, blinking red-green-blue forever until I turn that monitor off and on again. By the way, I do have the latest video drivers loaded for all devices.

ORIGINAL REVIEW: A little background and history: My stock trading multi-monitor setup has 3 monitors: the center 24" widescreen monitor is 1920x1200, and the secondary monitors on either side are 19" widescreens (1440x900). One of the side monitors is rotated +90 degrees and the other rotated -90 degrees to portrait mode. My desktop PC had a built-in video driver. In my first attempt to build a triple monitor system, I naively installed a dual output ATI video card, thinking I could use those two outputs in conjunction with my existing internal video to acheive a triple monitor output.

EDIT 2/1/11:
The fix, suggested to me by the manufacturer, consists of turning off automatic graphics switching on the newer MBP models. This option is found under SYSTEM PREFERENCES > ENERGY SAVER > AUTOMATIC GRAPHICS SWITCHING. Uncheck the box (at the top left of the window) to turn this feature off. You will consume more battery power, but the computer will be stable using this USB video adapter. I haven't tried running the beta driver from Diamond, etc...

This solution works, but I don't like the lack of support from Diamond. Best of luck.

ORIGINAL ENTRY:
I just spent my entire weekend trying to fix a disaster caused by the Diamond BVU195 and/or the DisplayLink software. I had been running one 24" Dell external monitor at my desk from the mini-display port, but I wanted a second external monitor. I went ahead and purchased everything I needed -- a dual arm mount and another 24" Dell, along with the Diamond BVU195.

I should mention that I'm running all this on a very new, mid-2010 model MacBook Pro with 10.6.4 and the recent (8/20/2010) graphics update.

After installing everything ran smoothly on the dual external monitors. It was very nice to have the additional screen space to work with. Leaving that evening, I put my computer to sleep, disconnected the cables, packed it up, and went home. The next morning, I was using my MBP at home without any external monitors. Everything seemed to be working fine for a number of hours.

However, while quitting out of a program, the screen went black, and then became stuck on a snow pattern (after restart, it was locked on a light blue screen similar to the screen seen during start-up). I cursed, fiddled, called apple care, and essentially did everything I could think.
