I’ve just spent over a week pulling my hair out because my games were running worse on a 4 x better spec machine (new HP laptop) than my previous machine. I just tried some games disconnected from the Plugable hub (UD-ULTCDL) entirely, and they run blisteringly fast.
Problems I’m having with the HP Spectre x360 15" through the UD-ULTCDL with a second monitor…
- hard drives randomly disconnect from the hub, to appear maybe 20 seconds later. Sometimes one external drive in isolation, sometime all 3 or 4 drives at once.
- games through Steam run terribly. Poor resolutions on second screen, slow run speeds etc etc
- 2K and 4K connections to second monitor seem to disconnect randomly, or completely, forcing me to re-install the displaylink plug-ins/drivers to get them back. It will then break and do the same thing again a week or two later.
The inconsistency of the product is very disappointing, particularly considering the large cost. Is there anything that can be done about it please??
