      Did not accomplish what I expected

      I purchased this after buying two brand new HP 25in displays with the goal of running a dual monitor setup off my MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-in, Mid 2015). While it did accomplish a dual monitor-esque type setup, it came with many flaws. First, I had to install software before using the product, which is unheard of. Second, it did not work properly. Have you ever tried to remote into a desktop on a slow connection and you are presented with a downgraded quality display? This is exactly what happens. It is slow, flickers, and does not produce a 100% clone of the graphics that you would expect. I immediately returned this product in favor of 2x MDP to HDMI cables instead (which only cost $8 each also).

      Good for work, not so good for gaming

      I am overall quite happy with this product. It really does a good job at allowing you to connect a laptop to more than one monitor. If you ran out of hdmi/dp/dvi/vga ports on your PC and you would like to have an extra monitor to use it for work (reading emails, working on documents, etc.), then this is an outstanding product. However, I would not recommend this for those interested in gaming or video edition. For objects moving fast on the screen there is no lag, but a very noticeable blur. Solely based on the quality of the product I would give it 5 starts, but I am giving it 4 because at USD 80 I find it to be very expensive.

      This has been a fantastic purchase that my BestBuy rep helped me pick out after I described to him I needed two monitors for my home office but wanted to work off a laptop and not a tower. Within one minute he showed me the product and how easy it was to use and within an hour I had a two monitor system setup at my house like I would my office in NYC, Atlanta or Chicago. Very happy as this allows me to have to portability of a laptop and still have a home office setup like I would in any major company - without the hastle of getting IT involved. Thank you Ted

      Plan B

      Due to recurring glitches in the video display from my HP Envy desktop my tech guy recommended trying a"bypass" from the on-board HDMI and re-routing the signal with the USB to HDMI adapter. Solved the video display problem, though occassionaly I am getting compatibility message boxes from my VUDU source saying it cannot stream in HD. Not sure what this issue is about, but the problem of no video display at all is solved. The item does what it was designed to do. Load the driver connect the cables and you are ready to go.

      Finally! Two Screens and an Open HDMI Port!

      My new HP laptop has only one HDMI port. No way to run dual monitors, plus I have a Wacom which needs that HDMI port. Sweet! The j5Create software builds a virtual driver to power the USB, so you can run the Duals, the Wacom, and have the laptop open and screen up on it, too. It also eats up a lot of the Graphics horsepower, so once you open up enough Adobe Apps, and a dozen others, it will slog everything. Oh, well.. Four Stars...

      Requires Drivers

      I gave it a one star because it didnt work for me. I was trying to setup a dual monitor situation with my work laptop. Because I do not have administrative rights I could not download the necessary drivers for my Lenovo laptop. Instead I bought an insigna adapter with one HDMI port and a C Type USB connector. As my laptop only has one HDMI port so the adapter was needed.

      Just what I needed

      I have used a second monitor with my laptop for a number of years. After recently purchasing a 34" monitor, I realized that using a smaller remote monitor in addition to the big one would enhance what I was doing. After considerable research, a Best Buy employee in the local store put me onto this device. It did exactly what I needed and wanted.

      Maybe it's because I'm using MacOS, but after I installed the drivers, all I have to do is plug it into my Mac and it properly detects the displays and sets the resolution properly. When I unplug it, the displays go away, like you would expect. I have a similar j5create product at work that sometimes gets confused when I plug it in, requiring the invocation of magic spells to reset it properly.
