Misleading Info from Radio Shack

By Kimberley

from Wichita Falls, TX

Pros

  • Strong Connection Points

Cons

  • Only Mirrors Image

Best Uses

  • Same Image 2 Screens

Comments about Gigaware® 2-Port USB Powered VGA Splitter:

Based on a Tech Channel article I found on Radio Shack's own website ("How to Hook up Dual Monitors Using VGA Cables," by David Weedmark), I bought this item, thinking it would "add a second monitor to [my] PC" and give me "one extended view of [my] computer." I was WRONG. This device is only capable of giving mirror images on two screens. If that is what you are looking for, go for it; it works fine for that.

        Comments about Gigaware® 2-Port USB Powered VGA Splitter:

        I work at home, and addition to my regular deks, I have now added a standing desk with treadmill. I wanted to be able to duplicate my computer screen from regular desk to the standing desk. This product does exactly that. Easy to install. Worked exactly as described.

                          The sales associate mislead me as well, saying it would extend to two screens. I'm not happy with that associates thoroughness in assisting me. Definitely didn't take much time to find out exactly what I needed.

                              Got this at the Radioshack Centennial/Decatur Branch. We connected our old computer to the existing monitor and LCD TV to be able to watch netflix on the big screen TV. Works great! this vga splitter uses usb to power it so no need for extra power adapter/outlet

                                  This product simply replicates your primary screen to another screen (it will not expand your screen across two monitors). This is of limited utility at best!

                                    Comments about Gigaware® 2-Port USB Powered VGA Splitter:

                                    This item does exactly what it is made for. It is used to split a video signal to allow THE SAME SIGNAL that feeds one VGA monitor to be duplicated and fed to another VGA monitor. It is a piece of hardware, not software, and is not advertised nor should be considered as a multiple monitor software tool which does amazing graphical panoramic views across monitors like you see in the movies. It performs exactly as it's description claims, and took about 5 minutes to install.
