I have tried for the past two months to get the UGA-2K-A to operate properly with a Mac mini (2010) as a third display, but with nothing but frustrating results. USB device freezes, not waking from sleep, third monitor going blank, etc. Sometimes things seem OK, but it’s inevitable that one of the above problems will strike at least once during a work day. Add to this that DisplayLink is STILL only issuing 1.6 Beta 3 for Snow Leopard, and it looks like this product is dead in the water. Too bad I persisted for two months, as I should have returned it to Amazon within the 30-day period.
Add to this a whole other set of problems when trying to integrate the Plugable USB2-HUB-AG7 in the above system, and you’re really going to find a lot of trouble. Luckily, I am able to return the AG7 to Amazon for a refund.
Since I apparently cannot get a refund on the UGA-2K-A, what I’d like to do is return it to you anyway, then wait until both an improved, reliable version is in production, and when DisplayLink has reliable, non-Beta software available.
I am very disappointed in both these products. They offered considerable expansion and performance capabilities, but have failed to deliver. I will get by with my Mac mini’s dual monitor feature for now, but would really like to see Plugable and DisplayLink work together to iron out the various problems that I and many others have had and expressed.
