Operating a headless PC requires remote desktop access, but in many cases compositing the desktop in high resolution is possible only when the computer detects a connected display. fit-Headless is a miniature HDMI plug that emulates a high-definition display connected to the PC. The headless PC identifies fit-Headless as a connected display and enables the GPU thus allowing remote desktop compositing at high resolution. fit-Headless works with any HDMI capable PC on any operating system and requires no software installation nor configuration. fit-Headless does not require external power.

While purchasing the Chromebox my initial thought was to use a Plugable sharing switch (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JX3Q28Y/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1), however, there were complications using this. The first issue was getting DisplayLink adapters to work with the OS I installed on the Chromebox. The second was that my Jabra device was useless when connected to the Chromebox since it needed a Skype installation on my work laptop. The third was that for the minuscule timeframe that I would switch out the connection from my work laptop, it would drop the connection, at least the first time.
So my alternative was to use VNC to connect to the Chromebox. I was using X11VNC, and while this works fine if there is a monitor connected to the Chromebox, the lack of a monitor causes the resolution to get hammered.
A little Googling brought me to this product, and I decided to take a chance on it, given the low cost. Upon arrival, the unpacking was easy enough, and it took me a total of 1 minute to shutdown my Chromebox, plug this in, start up the machine and connect to it using VNC. All resolution issues magically disappeared once I rebooted!
Very few products have been so effortlessly effective within a minute of unpacking! I highly recommend this item.
With this plug, I'm able to eliminate the need to plug a television in. Google remote desktop works just fine for access to my alpha and the tv can go back in storage as a just incase solution. Thanks CompuLab.
I regularly remotely connect to my computers via VNC, and with this device - I can increase my available desktop space! It is hard to expand without a physical desktop space on a Windows machine without having a physical monitor that supports the resolution. Even virtual desktops can be annoying if they are all at a small resolution.
This device is really useful if you need your machine to have a 1080p display detected, but don't want to actually have a monitor connected to it!
EDIT: After I have had this item for a little while, my computer started randomly freezing and boot looping. After testing all the components it turned out this was malfunctioning. I unplugged it and haven't had an issue. When it works it works well, but it died out of nowhere.
