Product overview

• Add-on a monitor, LCD or projector through a single USB 2.0 port
• Hot-plug, add or remove monitor without system reboot

This USB display adapter enables you to connect one more monitor, LCD or projector to a computer with a USB 2.0 port. For desktop users adding an extra monitor via USB connection is easier than ever without having to open the computer chassis to install an internal video card. Once the installation is done, the USB-attached monitor soon wakes up. There is no need to use function keys to swap to a second monitor. With this handy adapter, you can enjoy many benefits brought by an add-on monitor. The most obvious one is that you get more desktop area to have more applications visible at one time. For example, you may work on one monitor while your family are watching video on the other. No more stacking windows within the confines of a single display. Or you may span an application, e.g. spreadsheets, across two sides of displays. What’s more, the adapter is hot pluggable. If you are not using the extra monitor, just unplug the adapter at any time; no reboot is required. System performance is an important issue when using multiple monitors. Another benefit of this adapter is that it uses little computer resources, ensuring users get a quality display without comprising computer performance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Try something else. At time of writing this device has a chip which is 8 years past its end of life and is no longer supported. DisplayLink have no requirement to support the DL-165 chip and will no longer function if you upgrade to Windows 10 Anniversary Update. The description stated XP and above but if you are using with Winodws 10 you may get caught out. DisplayLink may release a updated driver in coming months but no guarantee. Approach with caution depending on the OS you are using.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used this to connect my Asus T100 - both hdmi and vga connections worked. No disc drive on T100 so loaded driver from Display Link website Display Link website says it will not work with Atom processor without further software from computer manufacturer - but it did work on the T100 without anything extra from Asus After loading needed to reboot to get it to work - although there was no on-screen request to do so Geoff

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Installing from disk was useless but just plugging in and allowing windows update to find the correct driver worked a treat. Now thinking of adding a 3rd external monitor to my collection

I asked the other day about drivers for - USB 2.0 to DVI Full HD Adapter with VGA and HDMI Adapters - why did you respond "Our staff has read your question and values your contribution even though it did not meet all our website guidelines." ? WHY?

Asked by: higgsy
Hello, your last question was rejected as it did not comply with our terms of service (it had a link to an external site) In answer to your question, this item is plug and play so no drivers are required, if it is not working please give us a call on 0333 400 9500 (option 6) when you are with the device so we can go through some diagnostics.

Do you know where I can download the driver for this part? I bought it but cannot find the driver/cd anywhere

Asked by: Brendan
Apologies, I noticed that as soon as I'd asked the question. Unfortunately it didn't work. I am using a surface pro 3 with windows 10. Not sure if that is relevant?

Hi, I bought one of these today but the enclosed CD driver isn't working. Is there a link to an online driver I can use, or can I get just the CD sent to me so I can use the adapter I've purchased? Thanks
