Liztek USB 3.0 to VGA / DVI / HDMI Video Graphics Adapter Review


I received this Liztek USB 3.0 to VGA / DVI / HDMI Video Graphics Adapter Card to review. Since my husband is the computer guru, he took it took work to use with a project. He used it alone and in combination with the Liztek 2.0 adapter I received so he could connect multiple monitors. He had this to say about the adapters:

The adapters set up easily on two different computers - a desktop with Windows XP and a Laptop with Windows 7. There is a driver disk included, but I did not need to use it as both computers auto installed the driver. The unit works well in duplicate or extended mode. There is a small icon in the bottom right hand corner of the task bar and you can right click on this icon to choose your settings. The only complaint, if there one, is that every time the computer restarts then I have to right click on that icon and extend my monitors again. It is like a laptop being restarted and you having to tell it to duplicate or extend again which is normal. It would be nice if this USB video device driver could remind windows that I had two screens when the computer was restarted….The video output quality is really good and I am pleased with the results.
He added that the two adapters worked well in conjunction with each other and with his computers. He will definitely be able to get a lot of use from these devices  in the future.

Some top reasons the adapter card are used:

~ Connect displays/projector with inexpensive USB cabling
~ External USB to DVI video card solution - for use with monitors that support up to 2048x1152 resolutions
~ Increase productivity with multiple monitors

Some specifications of this Adapter are:

~ Connect three or more monitors to your laptop or desktop PC (one adapter required per monitor, up to 6 on Windows PCs)

~ Plug and play, extensible USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 connectivity. Widest possible monitor support via DVI-I output and both VGA and HDMI adapters included in box

~ DisplayLink DL-3500 chipset, supports resolutions up to 2048x1152 (1920x1080 with Analog VGA)
Windows 8.1/8/7 32/64-bit and XP 32-bit drivers via Windows Update, download, or disk

~ Mac is not supported. No Linux support at this time.


If you have a need for connected monitors or to link up a projector, the Liztek USB 3.0 to VGA / DVI / HDMI Video Graphics Adapter Card could be just the device you need! It can be purchased from Amazon.com.
