https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00A2E1MQA/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_0 Plugable USB 3.0 to VGA / DVI / HDMI Video Graphics Adapter for Multiple Monitors up to 2048x1152 / 1920x1080 (Supports Windows 10, 8.1, 7, XP)
I am extremely impressed by the Plugable products and wouldn't hesitate in buying them again, or in recommending them. I did have some pre-sales queries and they responded very promptly and gave me helpful answers, even warning me that my intended usage of running streaming webcams may not work properly. I still decided to buy this and everything works as I'd hoped.
For anyone running a multiple monitor set up, the addition of specialist multi-monitor software to control it makes everything a breeze. I use software called Display Fusion, [...] and would highly recommend it. The support is also excellent if you should run into problems.
I can't comment on the picture quality as I never got that far.
July 2013 - An update...
As you can see I wrote the above negative review after purchasing the plugable USB 3.0 UGA adaptor as the lead kept falling out of the unit. I returned the unit to Amazon and received a prompt full refund.
However, shortly after posting this review, plugable customer support (based in the US) emailed me asking me if I would like a replacement unit. Although I was impressed by their follow up I had just returned the unit to Amazon so I had to decline their offer, I thought no more about this...
About a month ago plugable contacted me out the blue and said that they had been listening to customer feedback and redesigned the unit and would I mind testing it? As I still needed a USB to video adaptor I said that I would be happy to.
About a week later I received the package (from US) with the re-designed adaptor. The principle is still the same, a USB 3 plug for the PC / laptop end and the other end of the 1 meter lead then plugs into the plugable UGA adaptor (sorry I don't know the plug specification). Your monitor / TV lead then plugs into the interface at the other end of the plugable UGA adaptor. The UGA adaptor has an inbuilt DVI interface but also included in the box are a DVI to HDMI interface and a DVI to VGA interface, so most devices will be catered for.
No power adaptors are needed as the device takes its power from the USB 3 port. As I'm using Win 7 the device was fully plug and play and I did not need to use the supplied driver disk.
This time the connecting lead from the laptop to the plugable adaptor is much thicker and more importantly it has a considerably larger plug which then slots into the adaptor. On the device which I tested this was now rock solid and did not fall out even with a good shake, however it's still easy enough to unplug for transportation purposes (e.g. in a laptop bag)
I've tested the adaptor with my Dell U2312HM monitor (on the DVI and VGA ports) and also my Sony TV using the HDMI adaptor. On all three interfaces I was able to run at my laptops max screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 and the picture was rock solid. However I felt (not surprisingly) that the picture was slightly sharper when using the DVI interface.
To my aged eyes I could not tell the difference between the "normal" DVI socket on my laptop docking station and the same picture when connected via the plugable adaptor. I should point out that I did not get any sound from the TV when using the HDMI interface but I think this is probably due to my audio settings on my laptop rather than the adaptor.
In summary the Mark II adaptor works brilliantly and I would have no hesitation in recommending this new improved version. I would also like to congratulate plugable on their excellent customer follow up service. It's great when manufactures listen to their customers and then quickly act on the feedback.
