Better-than-expected performance and quality!
I bought this for my work after reading the above university person's review.It came in less than a week and was packaged properly. The seller is a+ & hassle-free.I connected it to an old nec 14 inch vga flat panel and then a few days laterconnected it to a 17 inch samsung monitor.The goal was to have 3 monitors available to me simultaneously.- the laptop screen- one flat panel monitor connected to the laptop's vga port- another flat panel monitor connected to either the laptop's displayport jack or the usb jack.It is quite a beautiful large-medallion-like smooth-finished piece.Quite nice to the touch actually & aesthetically pleasing.I was surprised at how fast the cdrom driver install+reboot+connectinstallation process was..Just a few mins and i was up and running.It really is as easy and fuss-free as the other review said.My system administration job requires too many win7 windows open at the same time and i got fedupat piling-up one window on top of the other. I needed them all side-by-side.I had as well bought a displayport-to-vga cable that i couldn't get to workon my hp probook 6470b snazzy laptop at work. Probably coz i still had the laptop's screen still active.Either way, it was faster to use this unit than figure the displayport problem out.The picture quality it delivers is so good & clear on any vga monitor connected to it, it's actually betterthan the direct connection of my laptop's vga connection to the primary vga monitor! I have yet to try the dvi output.I can't imagine how sharp that would be!There are no issues whatsover with this unit that i found. It's quite plug and play.Even a change of monitor while it's running doesn't mess it up.There's no static or text distortion (as i've seen on another manufacturer's similar product in the past.)the picture is rock-steady, clear and crisp with full 32-bit color depth.I've been thinking about buying this for home use as well.Keep up the fine work siig!
