Connect 3 USB graphics adapters to a USB hub


Would my laptop be able to extend it’s display on 3 external monitors if I get 3 Plugable USB 3.0 to 2K HDMI video graphics adapter. If so, would it work if I plug-in the 3 USB graphics adapters to a USB hub? Lastly, my laptop doesn’t have a CDROM drive. Can the driver be downloaded online? My laptop specs are as follows:

Hi Ryan,

Thanks for joining our forums and reaching out with your questions. Your laptop should be compatible with any of our USB 3.0 based docks and adapters and you can use these devices to add up to six monitors to your laptop.

To add three monitors you could either use one of our dual-monitor docking stations along with a USB graphics adapter plugged into a UBS port on the dock. Or you could get three individual USB graphics adapter and plug them into your laptop or a powered USB hub. The USB hub will need to be powered and able to provide enough power to all the USB ports in order for the adapters to well though, so we recommend using our USB hubs if you can. I’ve listed a few of these products below so you can review them.
