Excellent support for Surface with Windows 8 Purchased a U244-001-VGA-R to extend the screen of a Windows Surface tablet running Windows 8. The U244-001-VGA-R has the same maximum screen resolution and works well feeding from the single USB port on the Surface. A great solution since there is not VGA port on the Surface tablet. September 14, 2013
Great product! We are a small non-profit and use Tripp Lite for 5 staff members. Great for productivity and the easiest & most reliable product of its sort. Thanks Tripp Lite! September 6, 2013
Get this for easy dual screen setup We used a few other brands prior to going to Tripp Lite. We have abandoned the others and use Tripp Lite exclusively for our dual monitor setups. We have well over 50 workstations using this product. Competitive price with other brands minus the grief that others cause. Thank you Tripp Lite. May 1, 2013
We have moved to the tripp lite product after having other products fail. Have them out at 50+ locations and have seen no issues thus far. Great product. February 26, 2013

I want to buy this to add a 2nd VGA signal to allow Extended Desktop Display (2 monitors w/ different images) and am wondering if the task bar continues across all monitors?

ALSO, do you happen to know how the Tripp Lite compares to the Dualhead2Go VGA sold by Matrox which is $140 vs the $55 for the Tripp Lite?

Thank you

Answer: 
Currently the latest driver available for the U244-001-HDMI-R is Mac OS X 10.8 and as of 11/1 there is no information on the availability of a driver for Mac OS X10.9.

However, there's always new products, drivers, and additional information on the drawing board so the best thing to do would be to reach out to our main product support team.

The number is 773-869-1233 option 1 and email is techsupport@tripplite.com.

They might also have a workaround for the device in order to make it operational.

Is this compatable with Windows 8?

I just bought a new Dell Inspiron 17 and forgot to check if there was a VGA port on the side. D'oh! Anyway, this unit will replace a Windows 7 laptop that has a VGA port, which is connected to my second monitor. I need that capability on my new Windows 8 machine.

Thanks.

[FAQ-807] This adapter states that it is compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 or later, but I'm not able to get it to work on my Mac running OS X 10.7. Why?

The Mac OS X 10.7 driver is still under Beta testing and is available only online and not on the CD that comes with the product. Please use the Mac OS X 10.7 driver on the product web page.[Last Updated: Oct 11, 2011]
