      DON'T DO IT!!!

      First off the VGA to USB adapter is essentially useless as a plug and play device and doesn't help the technology gap! Solving the problem of new laptops only having USB ports with this product to connect with VGA data projectors puts you into the next realm of torture because this product requires you to install drivers and new laptops don't have CD/DVD drives either! Luckily, or "Yay, I'm in for more frustration," you have the download option but then you need to find where the actual link to download the driver is from their web site - which they clearly state is under download tab, then like normal places you click on the OS you have (i.e. Windows 10) but there is no actual link! I finally discovered it was under 'English' - really? English? Yeah that's a real intuitive way to identify where the download is...and then I could go on about the zip file and that the file defaults to your download folder..anyway, this is a poor product and you should try something that doesn't suck first

      I would give zero starts but that isn't an option. 1 Start is way to generous. My Windows 10 Lenovo PC did not have HDMI only USB so I went to BestBuy to look for a USB to VGA adaptor. I found the Insignia product. It was the only USB to VGA adaptor. I made the mistake to buy it without reading reviews. I got home plugged into my laptop. It asked me to run/install/restart...easy enough. it then goes to black screen and i lost my entire PC. Run from this product. I'm heading back to see if Geek Squad can recover my laptop but after reading reviews i could be screwed as i've now read other forums and this is a common problem. Why Best Buy would sell this in the Windows section when it clearly shuts down windows 10 machines is beyond me

      The adapter comes with a CD. My new laptop doesn't have a CD drive. You are given (2) options to download the driver from the internet. (1) The website link that's written on the CD takes you to a temporary out of order link. (2) From that link you can select the link options to their Home Page. Once you find your product, you're led to "Support & Downloads" which only gives you PDF instructions like the paper work that comes in your box. Under "Install Drivers from the Internet" steps 5, 6,7& 8 never show up because the link for downloading the drivers is no where to be found. I will take this product back before I go through the headaches that others have experienced. If I were an IT specialist then I believe this product could possible work because I would have a better understanding of the correct drivers to download. BTW, I'm running Windows 10. Because it's a new laptop, I don't want to take the chance of screwing it up.

      Great way to add extra display to all-in-one

      I have an older all-in-one desktop that I needed to hook up to a projector, but it didn't have any video out ports. Picked this up and plugged it in, and it works as advertised. It gets a 4 star from me for two reasons though. 1) I wish it would have been plug-and-play capable instead of having to download and install the drivers. The included disk wouldn't load properly, but the driver was easy enough to download online. 2) The picture lags quite a bit when run through this adapter and running multiple programs. This more than likely has to do more with the age of my computer, and it not having USB 3.0 capability. All in all, this adapter works if you need to add an extra display, but make sure you have USB 3.0 capability for best quality.

      Driver does NOT work with windows 10

      Posted
      Matt

      After installing the driver for this product you must restart to finish the install, the computer goes into a black screen and will not start back up. After personally researching and troubleshooting I found that the driver for this product has been a common problem for many people for a long time and no one has found a way to fix this problem and make it actually work. I spent an hour on the phone with insignia support trying to get this product to work. They concluded the driver will not work on my computer which is running windows 10. The box says it works with windows 10 but the driver installation locks up windows 10 every time.

      (yes, I yelled) I did read the reviews but I thought "I am smarter than all those Windows 10 users who couldn't get it to work". Well, I am not. I saved a system restore point and then downloaded the latest drivers. Locked at startup the first time. After a couple restarts I restored to my last known good configuration and, being stubborn, tried again. Same result - [insert definition of insanity here] This product just does not work. If you are one of the lucky few it looks like it may work. Is it worth the risk?

      Cheap but not worth it

      I have used a large number of DisplayLink adapters that provide the same services and they work great. This device is based on a different chipset (Trigger) and it doesn't work very well at all. It is limited to 800x600 on a USB 2.0 connection while my DisplayLink adapters will go to 1920x1080. At the same time, I was seeing significant sync problems (the picture was going jagged) and there was nothing that could be done to resolve it. Pay the higher price for a DisplayLink adapter and you will be a LOT happier (I have no relationship with DisplayLink other than being a satisfied user).

      Device: Windows 10 (upgraded from Windows 7) The device works as intended. I needed to use an extra monitor for my work computer and once you've downloaded the updates and restarted your machine it works fine. One thing to note: my computer being an older computer (I updated it to Windows 10) has older USB ports. The device still works on my computer to extend my display to another monitor; but because I don't have a USB 3.0 port on my older work computer, the display's max resolution settings is 800x600. For the time being that's good for me, but it's something to note for someone that doesn't have USB 3.0 ports and may want their 2 monitors to match up to the same resolution.
