The problem is, is that there is a lag. If i move my mouse around or a window around on the screen you can tell it moves slower and has that "ghosting" effect. It can't play movies in full screen mode well at all.
This being said if you will be using it for more of a static use then it should be fine. When I do my web development work, I use my second monitor to keep my browser and all im doing is really hitting refresh to see the new changes in one of my sites. It's alright for web browsing, but I'd prefer to use my main monitor. However don't intend on using it as your primary monitor, I haven't played any games on it, but the fact that you can't play a full screen movie/youtube video makes me think a game wont work well at all.
Because this device is USB, usb supposedly isn't fast enough to transfer high quality video, hence the lag effect.
However I couldn't find any other devices that have allowed me to hook up a second monitor to laptop, or at least for this cheap.
So it depends what you use it for.
It works great after installing the latest driver from the evga web site (or DisplayLink site). It did require a reboot after the first install to remove an issue where I could not reposition the display in the display properties dialog. The reboot solved this and it's now easy to hot plug and remove the additional display without rebooting.
It handles full screen .WMV and .mp4 1080P HD video scaled to fit my 1280x1024 monitor with about 20% CPU usage. There is very minor stutter on some clips that's only apparant in smooth panning scenes.
Youtube 720P content renders perfectly in an IE window, and extremely well (at almost 90% CPU use) in full-screen 1280x1024.
The evga unit came with a carry case, retractable USB to Mini-USB cable, and a DVI to VGA adapter. I am using a DVI cable to connect to my display.
Overall, this does a very good job and exceeded all of my expectations.
I'm still playing around with if I want to use the 3 monitors or just the two large ones and store my laptop under my desk to free up some desk space.
Either way, this product was super easy, just plug-n-play. Windows downloaded the drivers, no CD needed (I'm on Windows 7 64bit), and in a matter of seconds I'm up and using multiple displays. I think I may even buy a USB hub, another 32" monitor and another one of these adapters for the coveted 3 screen work space. I'm getting a nerd-on just thinking about it.
I have yet to test it out on Ubuntu, but from what I browse online, it's supposed to work fine.
