There's nothing fancy to see here, just a nifty adapter to upgrade your HDMI-less notebook or desktop with HDMI output. The USB 3.0 to HDMI Adapter comes from Zotac, a company out of Hong Kong best known for its Zbox line of mini PCs. The idea of converting a USB port into HDMI is simple and convenient, and boy do we love our conveniences.
"Enjoy videos, photos, movies, web content and more on multiple HD displays with the Zotac adapter," said John Cummins, VP of Sales and Marketing for DisplayLink. "With DisplayLink technology, you can expect high performance and crisp visual quality all with the ease of a USB accessory."
Don't worry if your system also lacks a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port, Zotac says it works with USB 2.0 as well. Just plug it in and connect a digital display for an instant plug-and-play experience, the company says. The adapter supports resolutions up to 1920x1200 with 6-channel digital audio. It works with Windows XP, Vista, and 7 (up to six adapters), and Mac OS (up to four adapters).
