There is no chance of that happening. There is still a need for a charger.
I do not agree with you at all. There is something wrong with anyone who answers yes. A video display can be powered by either an HDMI or VGA port at the same time, but not both.
This is what I currently use on my Lenovo Y900 laptop. Ethernet, USB, and HDMI haven't caused any issues for me. While I have not used the VGA yet and I definitely won't anytime soon, I do think I'll eventually use it.
Having purchased mine for my XPS 13 9350, there is no other purpose for it. It is important to note that the Ethernet interface only supports full duplex. There is no way to do this with a half-duplex The device will not function with 2 pair cables as well. Be sure you are using 4 pair Category 5 cables.

An issue that some find difficult to deal with. Two Thunderbolt 3 ports). A 12-inch display, with two Thunderbolt 3 ports. It was obvious to me from the start- Since it didn't have an SD Card Reader like the Xoom, it would not work.
Take the time to read I bought this adapter to use with my 4K monitor and Dell 9570 laptop and it does technically work as written in the manual in fine print, but the description online is misleading. It turns out that you need to read the fine print to make sure that you are getting the best deal. A computer with a USB C output with DP 1 will be able to support 4K 60HZ. It is 31/3. There is no laptop from Dell with USB C that uses DP Alt mode 1. As of this writing, there are no USB C devices available from Dell. This was very disappointing to me, as I had paid a premium to get this adapter because it claimed to work with By handing the Dell USB C adapter to my $3800 Dell laptop, I had no idea it would be able to output 4k 60Hz. It is not a product I would recommend.
I verified this on a new Macbook Pro late last year It does not have a touch bar. As a result of all the bad reviews, I was hesitant to get this, but the good reviews from all Mac users encouraged me to buy it. Despite not having installed drivers, all four ports are working on my Macbook Pro, fresh out of the box. There is no snagging or catching of the cable, making it easy to tuck away completely into the device. This creates an easy-to-stow smooth bar that doesn't bind up when you are packing. This very flexible and nice silicone cable is very thin and feels very nice. I was only looking for the ethernet and maybe the USB-cable. It stores more than a single adapter, but it is much smaller than even A. In short, if you own a Mac, purchase this rather than even a single dongle, and you are covered for any issue.
VGA PortInitially, I thought I would need to install the DisplayLink driver since I could not get the VGA port to work, so I installed it. However, I was not able to connect to the VGA port. Some of my retries did not work I connected it first to my USB device and it seems to work when I inserted the VGA cable there before connecting to the USB device. It certainly works for me every time I have a problem with it. This might not be the only way to fix it, but that's how I get it to work. Whenever I do get it working, I have not had a problem with it quitting. To be sure, I uninstalled DisplayLink and verified it had been purged. Everything still works fine. HDMI Port
I never had a problem getting HDMI to appear whether I plug the HDMI first or the USB-->HDMI connection first. 720P is the best resolution. I have a TV that supports either 720P or All three resolutions were possible to switch between without any problems. In the beginning, I had some problems with the Ethernet port, as I had with the VGA port. There was no pattern that was apparent, but re-analysed With some plugging and jiggling, I got it to work. At gigabit full duplex, I am able to connect. USB-User Interfaces I don't see any problems with this port. Since I did not have a USB 3 device available, I transferred files with a USB 2 thumb drive. MacOS reports a USB 3 port.
So I didn't need any drivers to run the program. It seems that the USB-C connection issues I had were the result of the USB-C socket being tight on the cable In regards to the C side, it appears that the connecter on the device is the cheaper type where the outside ground is a stamped sheet that's bent around and added together In order to determine whether I continue to have problems after using the product, I will update my review. There are a few issues here, but overall I give her one star off. In the event that this proves reliable over time, I will upgrade to a 5 star. I updated my March 2017 post as follows This is what I have been using for quite The best way to connect VGA is to do so first, then to It is almost impossible to use VGA anymore. Most of my computer work is done over Ethernet and over A USB-based device Now, A can also be found very rarely. I have never had a problem. The star rating is being upgraded to 5.
There is a serious flaw and disadvantage to the lack of PD (power delivery) passthrough. (I'm using the new Dell XPS 13 9370 and I'm able to achieve full 4k performance via the HDMI port but I'm not able to do it via the DisplayPort). A product at its price point should come with.
