Cons: Require CD for drivers or download from DisplayLink. Short USB cable provided.

Pros: Easy setup, small device. Several adapters, DVI-VGA & DVI-HDMI
Worked out of the box with the CD. Super easy to install. After drivers installs, the windows screen position configurator comes up and allows you to re-position your screens.

Performs. DVI connection to monitor. and no difficulties so far. Operating 1600x1200 Almost certainly not ideal to be set as your primary monitor. Won't run an ultrasharp above 60hz. Operating it along side a geforce 7300gs dual monitor setup. The monitor works with windows configuration, and has its own tray utility that will enable rotation, and other basic settings. It will confuse the nvidia manage application, which will not recognize you have a 3rd monitor, so you'll have to use the windows configuration to handle your screens.Also, it doesn't help boot very properly (doesn't initialize speedily), so as prior to, greatest not to use it as your major monitor. When login shows, its duplicated from the "primary" nvidia. So, hook it to the "extra" screen.I have it on a Ultrasharp 20", and it runs total res, even at 32bit, and doesn't seem to slow it down. I turned it down to 16bit (which didn't adjust something) and tried to turn up the refresh, and so forth, but no luck. I place the Geforce on dual HPw2007 20" wides to flank it, and now i see why it shouldn't be your "main" screen.General, entirely pleased with it. NOT for gaming, but excellent in the workplace!

Easy To InstallTiny Computer software FootprintHigh ResolutionGreat Help for CAD connected software (See Cons) The only CON that I have located with this device, is basically the truth that It is not meant for high end graphics. Operating the device (and its accociated monitor) in 32bit color mode, triggered some lag. When the color depth was lowered to 16bit color mode, the efficiency increased ten fold. This is running a screen resolution of 1600x1200.I would envision that if you utilized a much more "common" screen depth, these concerns would diminish. If Diamond would place a small additional "dedicated" memory into this device, I would imagine that it would boost its efficiency very a bit. Taking into consideration it only has 64MB devoted memory.Otherwise, if you are an "Office User" and dont require a high end video adapter, I would say its a great buy. Even if so.. Cutting your color depth down to 16bit rather of 32bit may serve the objective as nicely. It did for me. (Running Vista Organization 32Bit & AutoCAD 2007)Fantastic thought, good adapter from a name that I have trusted for a lot of quite a few years.

This adapter is little in size and uncomplicated to install and produced video excellent that worked for what I wanted it for. Although it was not moved or something related to it altered, this component stopped operating for no reason less than six months following I bought it. I contacted the firm and they had me send it in. They sent me back yet another component that also did not function (even right after updating the software program). My tech dept. updated the software program, tested it on two diverse systems using two different cables, tried reboots and every little thing they could feel of, but nonetheless concluded the replacement part was as dead as the one I sent them. I returned the second part. They claimed it was very good and sent it back to me. I will not buy one more Diamond MultiMedia portion, their parts are low excellent and their buyer service is terrible.

Using it for as 1600 x 1200 32 bit display, together with two other displays.

Review Date: 11/16/09
I have one of these at home and two at work. It supports full 1080P resolution and unlike its competitors, supports the native resolution over single link DVI of 2048 x 1156 for --msung LCD monitors. This is not a product for a lot of motion, but PERFECT for typical business and office work where you want to spread your desktop out over multiple monitors. It doesn't use any cpu time when nothing is changing, and relatively small when updating a typical office application screen. Gaming would probably not work so well- but works for everything else! What an inexpensive way to add additional monitors without the cost and power required for a higher end internal graphics card!
