The Sabrent UGA-2K-195 enables you to connect multiple monitors with any notebook or desktop (one adapter required per monitor, up to 6 adapters on one Windows PCs or up to 4 adapters on a MAC). Simply connect via USB directly to an available USB port or through a AC-powered USB 2.0 hub. Now you can multitask with a dedicated monitor for each document or application.

Package contents:
  • 1 x USB 2.0 to DVI Graphics Converter.
  • 1 x USB 2.0 Cable
  • 1 x DVI-I to VGA/D-Sub Converter for use with a VGA display.
  • 1 x DVI-I to HDMI Converter for use with a HDMI display.
  • 1 x Driver CD.
  • 1 x User Guide

System requirements:

Windows 8/7/Vista/XP drivers install automatically via Windows Update, but a driver CD is included in the package for your convenience.

Supported Operating Systems include:

Windows 8(64bit/32bit), Windows 7 (64bit), Windows 7 (32bit), Windows Vista (64bit), Windows Vista (32bit), Windows XP (32bit)/ Mac OS X However, driver updates are released regularly and can be downloaded from DisplayLink's site.
    Supported Resolutions:

    2048×1152, 1920×1200, 1920×1080, 1600×1200, 1680×1050, 1400×1050, 1280×1024, 1280×768, 1152×864, 1024×768, 800×600, 640×480.

    *Since the Sabrent UGA-2K-195 adapter is natively DVI, the HDMI support is only for video display; this adapter has no audio function. (Audio can be transmitted separately and directly from the computer's sound card to the intended display or to speakers, but this is completely independent of the Display Adapter.)

    Worked awesome for running 3 discrete monitors from HP laptop docking station.

    Watching a youtube video on this monitor will cause my cpu to go up about 5-10%, but I don't run anything that is CPU intensive, so for me it's no problem.

    Also, setup was easy, just plugged in the USB cord and Windows 7 x64 detected it and installed the DisplayLink drivers.

    I first heard about USB display adapters about two years ago. Back then, they were between $100 and $200 and a bit buggy and often very laggy. I chose this one based on the positive reviews and the price in order to have a lower end laptop use more than two displays at a time. I didn't realize until it arrived that it also came with adapters which allowed me to use VGA and HDMI. (The HDMI to DVI adapter is especially nice, IMO)

    I'm using Windows 7 Professional 64-bit on my company's computer. I plugged my display into the adapter, plugged the adapter into my computer, waited, and it worked. It took a few moments to connect to Windows Updates to download the drivers, but the entire process worked unassisted. Additionally, as I was flipping through the included instructions to pass the time as Windows Update searched for the drivers, I was pleased to see that the instructions explicitly stated "You don't need to use the CD or download the drivers unless Windows Update doesn't work." I applaud Sabrent for not pushing their software/drivers on us.

    So far, it's been brilliant. The color temperature between displays connected via the USB adapter and the one connected to the laptop is spot on. No artifacting, lag, or color difference. I'm quite happy with this product. I'm actually going to be buying at least two more this week for some other fun multi-display projects I've been putting off due to lack of powerful enough video hardware.

    First off, this is my setup. 2011 Macbook Pro w/ one Thunderbolt display, and one 1920x1080 LG Display. While having the Thunderbolt and the Macbook Pro screen open at the same time I wanted to use a perfectly good LED screen I used to use with the MacBook Pro.

    My only nit-pick is when moving windows around you can slightly see the stutter. However, scrolling a webpage with inertial scrolling on a Magic Mouse works perfectly. You cannot tell the difference. As a supplemental screen to look up information on or keep my email open and out of the way I cannot say enought at how fantastic of a job this little guy does.

    It does not require a wall plug for power and gets its juice directly from the USB port itself. As others were saying, I tried to run from the Thunderbolt display (essentially a hub) and got some pretty poor results. I would definitely connect directly to the port on the computer itself. I will say, this device is well worth the money. It's basically a low power graphics card powered by USB. The stutter comes from the speed of USB 2.0, not the card. I suspect USB 3.0 will solve all performance issues. If I had to say on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being extremely laggy and 10 being cannot tell, I'd say this device would get a 9 for sure. Would be a 9.5 if it weren't for the window drag lagginess. But I cannot stress enough at how unobtrusive and not a big deal this really is. I would watch movies on your main display. But for supplemental looking up of things and email. No complaints.

    Attention Mac owners with Superdrives. This comes with a mini disc for the driver. DO NOT put in your Mac, EVER. You can only do that on a Wii with old gamecube games. The driver for this device is available via a download. This is the one I used and it worked great.

    I use this with my Linux laptop and a KVM. After playing with xrandr I was able to write a script which could bring up this extra display though a KVM switch rather reliably. However I think the linux support for the class of devices still has a way to go. WIthout the KVM, it worked right out of the box, I didn't have to install any software, but that is because I'm running a recent distro with a 3.0 kernel. I plugged it in, and the gnome 3 display widget let me enable the display (almost the same as windows). Because the device is not as "smart" as the plugable usb3 super speed model, it doesn't shut off the screen when the KVM is inline (this is good!) However the excess heat it puts off is a bit worrisome. However unlike the plugable one, the usb cable is not flakey, it's also longer(hopefully I just got the pluggable one from a "bad batch"). Like others have reported, hibernating or suspending the computer seems to cause issues, it almost seems like short sleeps do not cause issues but long sleeps, like overnight, do. The most troubling thing I have with this is when I turned my computer on with it plugged in, I was never able to make it to a graphical login. I had to wait until after I logged in to plug in the device. This may be a hardware issue with the old 2006 computer I'm using and not this device. Remember these devices borrrow processing and memory from your existing graphical hardware, so if you don't have enough memory for all the displays, then you will be out of luck. In my case I can only replace my built in display not add a third monitor.

    Replaced an absurdly expensive (think in the $30k range) planar video wall system that was having motherboard issues with 8 of these running on 2 cheapo desktops. Saved me a boat load of money on what would have been an expensive repair, and reduced the complexity of the overall system dramatically.

    These units are easy to install, simple to use, work as advertised, and are thus far completely reliable.

    To be honest for the price point I'll keep one as a spare just in case,
