Extend Your Display

The hub splits a Mini DisplayPort 1.2 output into three separate DisplayPort signals - enabling your computer for high quality multi-monitor applications such as a video wall, extending your desktop, or mirroring your primary display to additional monitors or projectors.

Extend Your Performance

With separate image outputs and resolution support up to 2560x1600 for two displays, and 1920x1200 for a third display, the DisplayPort MST hub allows monitors connected through the hub to operate individually with the exact same performance as the Mini DisplayPort 1.2 graphics card on your computer.

Extend Your Compatibility

The MST hub is compatible with Intel Thunderbolt, when connected directly to a supporting DisplayPort over Thunderbolt I/O port. You can also use DisplayPort video adapters with the MST hub, enabling you to output the additional video signals to HDMI, DVI, or VGA displays.

Plug and play installation

The MSTMDP123DP supports plug-and-play installation for a hassle-free setup, and is backed by a StarTech. com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

If the device is plugged in before the computer is at the login screen, it will not work.

I simply returned the product to the retailer in Canada and am taking the 25% restocking fee as a hit for a product that many people complained doesn't work.

I'm driving two monitors at 1920x1200 with no current plans for a third one, but have that option if I need it.

I've used this with a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 (with and without the dock) with two display port monitors and have been very unhappy with this. It does seem to handle two monitors at 1920x1020 but the only way I've been able to get this to work is to disconnect the device, unplug all monitors from the device, power on my computer, connect the device to my to my computer once it reaches the login screen, and then slowly plug in each monitor.

If the monitors are plugged in before connecting to the computer they will not work. If the device is plugged in before the computer is at the login screen, it will not work. If the monitors are plugged in too quickly, they will not work. If any part of this process is done in the wrong order you need to start over from the beginning.

I had hoped this issue would go away with the docking station however it only became worse. Not only do I need to do the ritual of multi-monitors but now it will randomly black out a monitor for three seconds.

It's possible with a different laptop it might have better results but for now I'd recommend avoiding this. It's just not worth the frustration of constantly fiddling with wires.

Updated 12/5/2014 - Started to notice a number of issues with the MST not displaying to my monitors unless I re-dock the SP3. Going to ask for an RMA and see if the new adapter will fix this issue.

Just got this adapter today and am using it with the Surface Pro 3 docking station and it works fine. I'm driving two monitors at 1920x1200 with no current plans for a third one, but have that option if I need it. I've undocked the tablet and docked it without sleeping/shutting it down and it comes back right where I left off.

If you're planning on driving two monitors only and have the Surface Pro 3 dock, you could just use the mini display port on the dock and on the Surface while it's docked.

UPDATE 11/20/2015
Barry Watson in Product Improvement did send me another one of these MST Hubs with the new chips and I am happy to report that with a few configuration settings in Windows 8.1 it does indeed work with my Microsoft Surface Pro 3. The setup allows me to have an Asus 24in on the left, my surface in the middle and another Asus on the right. Which allows me to have three desktops. If you are a buyer consider these things first. 1.) Go to the display settings and configure the positions of the display. The identify tool will show you which display corresponds with the number. 2) Pick the display under each corresponding monitor in the setup and pick the monitor model. (This sounds silly but you will see) That should fix the problem. 3) Before returning it try and call StarTech. They sent me a new one because of the reason above. As far as the Apple issue it will work with my MacBook Pro but the con is that it is only a mirror of the desktop on both displays. StarTech says Apple doesn't officially support MST yet.

I just purchased a Surface Pro 3 with an Intel i5 Processor. Before purchasing I had done tons of research on the best solution for my dual Asus Monitors. I contacted StarTech and through the chat, the adviser told me that my Surface Pro supports Multi Stream Transport(MST) which is needed for this hub. He also said it is supported on my Early 2013 MacBook Pro. So I ordered the cables that they recommended which were $30 each and were DisplayPort to DVI. I got charged for the cables first then waited weeks to get the product because it was on back order. Finally when they got more after a week of waiting I was told they don't have any more. So I decided to order it from the retailer on Amazon. I tried first plugging this into my Mac.

Like other users, I was having issues getting this to work on a Surface Pro 3. Strangely enough, it was even advertised as *the* platform for this device. StarTech does not seem to have a defined policy on how to handle defective units - when I contacted StarTech support over live chat, instead of being offered a replacement then and there like one user in the reviews, I was directed to send the unit back to the reseller on Amazon, and request a replacement from them. When I asked the support specialist how the reseller would know a good unit from a bad unit (since they clearly sent me a bad unit), I was told that "They should be aware of this".

Rather than take the risk of wasting more time and money on the reseller sending me a bad unit again, I just returned it for a refund, and will be purchasing a slightly more expensive product on Amazon that is more likely to work the first time.

If you are someone who is having similar problems, you may want to try calling StarTech support instead of using live chat, since the other reviewer was offered the replacement over a phone call. All in all, if StarTech doesn't offer to send you a replacement on the spot, and you don't want to spend the money shipping the unit back to a reseller just to get another defective unit, you'd be better off cutting your losses and purchase a different product after sending this one back for a refund.
