As per the other reviewer, this clearly does work with Mac's. I'm using a mac as my pc, one apple display, and an acer display (ie. non mac). After downloading the mac software at http://www.displaylink.com/support/mac_downloads.php and re-starting it worked beautifully. Not sure why the company isn't providing the software for mac on the disk, or indeed the instructions or stating that it may be mac compatible. Also quite a good price for the quality and number of attachments you receive, making it quite versatile.
Just to advise that this is compatible with OSX - Im using a late2011 Macbook pro core I7 and OSX10.8.4 - the packaging doesnt mention OSX - but re a previous comment I took a punt and was successfull. Simply visit the displaylink website download and install the drivers - reboot and plug the kit in - in this case instantly recognised by 1080p AOC monitor - I have also played video successfully using VLC on this config with no stuttering - may depend on your spec! Good Luck!
I tried to install this from the enclosed CD on a Win 7 64bit PC and had major problems. The driver installed OK but after a required reset the software failed to install the adapter and rebooted the PC every time i connected it . I reinstalled the drivers many time but no joy. I then tried the adapter on a Vista PC and it worked first time which proved the adapter was OK. I noticed a manufacturers link on the Win 7 uninstall option, clicked on this and loaded new drivers from there and installed them and hey presto it all started working. I have only used for a few hours so far but the quality on video is pretty good when output via HDMI to my television. Make sure yiu get the latest driver if you are using Win 7
Brilliant adapter, don't expect full HD videos to play without significant tearing. But as it's a generic displaylink device (almost all of these devices are) it will support windows, osx and linux.
Once I had loaded drivers for my main 'on the motherboard' graphics (I had removed a dead graphics board and unloaded those drivers) the driver loaded easily then a re-boot and a plug-in later I had a second monitor working beautifully. This is cheaper than a multi-monitor graphics card, more portable, easy to install and use -- easier than I expected. If you want an additional monitor I recomend this device.
