Make your useless USB 3.0 port into external HDMI and Gigabit Ethernet outputs. Ideal for people who have a USB3 port but no HDMI or Gigabit network socket. Marvelous. Was £37.54. Free delivery when spending over £6.00 but as is so often then case with CPC they make things 1p less so simply buy CA0665369 for 1p (thanks to Miffyl for this) to get fabulous free postage.

1: Compact, portable design is ideal for travel use, excellent.
2: High resolution HDMI support up to 2048x1152, sweet.
4: Gigabit Ethernet port for fast data transfer, tasty.
5: USB powered, no power adaptor required, excellent.
6: SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface, speedy.
7: Backwards compatible with USB 2.0, ooh handy.
3: Supports Win XP/Vista/7/8 and Mac OS, nice but Win10?
8: Dimensions (HxWxD): 16x65x65mm, perfect size for my attache case.

My man servant was perusing CPC Farnell (I insist he checks every item each week to spot mega deals) and he elected to tell me about this little USB3 adaptor thingy that he insists might be quite useful and, as an added advantage it was greatly reduced in price. With my interest piqued I took note of the webular address and took a look for myself. I was pleasantly surprised that it did indeed appear to be a marvelous device at a price that is splendid. Curses though CPC, once again you insist on giving us products for £5.99 but only give free postage on items over £6.00. So, looking at the components section I carefully chose 10 resistors for 14p which will get me to the free postage nirvana and increase my stock of components that I'll never use. Pip Pip I say.

good spot

Anyone with techie knowledge...

I have a notebook, only with USB outputs and a projector that only uses HDMI or VGA.
Would this work to use an HDMI into it and then the USB into the notebook and it will project from the screen?

Thanks in advance

It looks like this might be what you need, does your notebook have USB3 do you know?

I have a nasty feeling that this is a misprice and will be cancelled.

Go to site and download pdf file. It shows a projector/laptop setup. As already said you need to check you have a usb3 connection on you laptop or it almost certainly won't work. All previous USBs versions are much slower.

This is backwards compatible with USB 2.0

Thanks everyone, I can't check. It's actually my dad's. Will risk it....

Thanks, I added some cable ties to get free delivery (part no. CB17668). Hot if it's not a misprice!

Backwards compatible only means it will be recognised by the system. It still is very unlikely that usb 2 will be fast enough to cope with HDMI at a decent resolution if at all. It is possible that the lan part will work without issue.

Even if it's no good the cheapest I can find is £14.99 on ebay. You should be able to get at least your money back by selling it through them. Good luck.

I've used a usb 2.0 to hdmi adapter at 1080p fine which is ok for most people and most projectors.

I bow to your experience.

Not relevant, but I'm going to say it anyway. Usb to hdmi is about £6 for Android regardless which of the 2 (?) formats you use, wonder why it's so much more for pc

Thanks ordered one give it a go see if it works

I believe its because 'some' Android tablets/phones have video passthrough via the USB port where as the PC adapters are little graphics cards as far as I am aware.

Has anyone used this on a mac book pro?

Anyone know if it will work with Windows 10 (W8 is highest it claims)?

I wouldn't say so as its a separate graphics adapter so the tablet/phone won't have any device driver - it won't know what it is

Can't think of a single situation where this might be useful, a laptop new enough to habe usb3 will defo have hdmi and gigabit

Actually a lot of ultrabooks don't have LAN ports and several need adapters for video output.

The Dell XPS range has no ethernet without such an adapter. Dell sell a similar adapter for £94.91. Other slim netbooks/laptops/tablets have the same limitation. I'd agree that most people wouldn't need the ethernet but if they do then this is just the ticket.

Possibly someone who might need 2 HDMI ports or 2 gigabit ethernet ports at the same time? do such people exist? I do not know and the fact this item is being flogged off cheap suggest few people do require such things but it might be useful to a select few.

Its very useful heres your single situation, my tablet and 99% of others don't have a lan port and to buy a usb to Lan is around £6+ unless from the Far East so this little device will give you ethernet for around the price of a dedicated USB to Lan with the added bonus of a HDMI port if you ever need one so a great buy. Ive bought one as you never know when you might need it, what happens if you have a laptop with a broken HDMI port? this little thing will be a god send.

Thanks purchased two for mine and the gf's surface. Currently use a MiniDisplay port but sometimes would prefer a LAN connection - this sorts both.

Someone who clearly hasn't seen any of the ultrabook PCs, convertibles or Apple laptops released in the last year and a bit! Had your head buried in the sand? Hell even my MacBook Air from 2013 will benefit from this...if it works!

ditto for my dell latitude tablet.. needs all sorts of connectivity via dongles.. including Ethernet and any form.of video out.

If I already have an hdmi out on my laptop, can I use this to create a second one and plug to 2 TVs at the same time t have 2 extended monitors? I have TVs at work in the meeting rooms.

I use this on my Alienware Steam Machine for a second monitor and it works fine... you just cannot game through it, only strictly something you'll use for conventional use.
