This thing is TOTAL GARBAGE!. Do ***NOT*** buy it! I paid $99 for it, which is $99 too much. First off: The alleged manufacturer's web page (CablesToGo; really an anonymous Taiwan OEM) said it would do 1600 x 1200 - total lie; max. is 1280 x 1024. Second: at its highest res, 1280 x 1024, the display locks up after only several minutes. Disabling it and re-enabling gets it working again, but who the devil is going to do that every 4 minutes? Third: yes, the video display lags immensely. I’m writing code, so fast screen update is not needed, so I could live with this. IF it did the res. advertised; IF it actually worked for more than 4 minutes at a stretch. I'll be sending mine back for a 100% refund, I HOPE. This thing is A TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY!

Dual Monitor Made Easy

on 5/12/2008

If you want dual monitors, this is the easiest approach that I have found. All you do it load the software and plug it in.
