Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not universal Works OK with my system since I have a USB-C port. The previous version of this device looked identical but was the older USB type A which is MUCH more common and works equally well. I wish I would have bought the older one. It works with everyone else's machine which is useful in a pinch for coworkers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mechanically sound - need software I wanted the ports for my XPS13. Since this is a model Dell sells with Linux, I expected there would be a driver for Linux. No driver currently listed on their web page. Customer service can't put me on a list to find it if/when a driver becomes available. Win10 is supposed to work out-of-the-box. You can download drivers for Win7, Win8. No Linux listed. It's a mechanically sound little dongle. Just need software to see if it works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Read description closely! Wasn't paying close enough attention and bought this to connect my new laptop to 2 external monitors at the same time. Discovered this won't do that. It's VGA OR HDMI, not both at the same time. If you only want to connect to one of those from one of the newer laptops without specific video connections, this is a good option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't work with Inspiron 17 7000 Series laptop. Purchased this over 2 months ago along with my laptop and other accessories. It didn't work right out of the box-my Inspiron 17 7000 Series 1778 never detected it. It took 2 months to get a refund. Dell sent me another one a month and a half later (tech support verified that there was a problem with the adapter and went to their manufacturer.) The second one Dell sent me didn't work either. I finally was able to send both back to Dell (at Dell's expense) and was given a credit to my credit card. I do not recommend this adapter for anyone. There appears to be too many compatibility issues with various Dell laptops. FYI I purchased a Startech USB-C ethernet and USB-A adapter and it has worked flawlessly.

Makes for a blurry output. A generic 3rd party USB-C - HDMI cable from StarTech worked without a hitch. The network and USB worked fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrible adapter We all have these with our Dells at work and they all fail within a few months, thanks to the terrible design that puts maximum stress on the flimsy ribbon cable. The design also makes using the other ports on the laptop difficult as it blocks them. Avoid!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY I bought this product and soon after I bought it the USB 3.0 completely stopped working. Then a little while later the entire adapter stopped working. The adapter sat on my desk the entire time and was not subject to twisting or bending yet it still failed. I contacted Dell and because it is outside the warranty they will not replace or refund. You are wasting money buying this adapter, it will fail on you. Terrible design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adapter causes wireless to drop - no fix with driver updates This adapter is flawed. We use this with XPS 13 (9350) laptops that are running Windows 10, we have nearly constant issues with the wireless performance whenever this adapter is connected. When the issues arise, we have found that as soon as the adapter is removed, the wireless works again. Basically, with the adapter plugged in, the laptop will see all available wireless networks, and if we attempt to connect to it Windows will say that it failed to connect (even when it shows full signal strength). As soon as the adapter is disconnected, the wireless automatically connects without issue. We have updated to the latest drivers for the adapter, but inevitability this issue will arise. It is especially problematic when the user takes their laptop elsewhere and then comes back and attaches the adapter - even if it had been working before, the issue will arise at this point. Dell sent us 3 of these free after we talked to customer support and explained our issues. All of those adapters had the same issues as well. This is extremely frustrating when combined with the fact that the XPS 13 (9350) laptop dropped a USB port in favor of a USB-C port - if the adapter doesn't work, you're basically down to one working USB port and no mini-display port which is extremely frustration. We need to find another adapter that can do what this one promised to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great for awhile This is a very handy adapter but there is too much stress on the tiny cable, especially since I use it for a VGA connection, and I think the wires inside are now damaged.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Portable and Convenient Output Adapter I got this about a week ago and it has become the favored portable device to go anywhere with us. This allows us to bring just a laptop anywhere we go and watch a movie anywhere. This adapter can transfer slideshows, video, and sound all from one device that features an HDMI, VGA, USB C, a 3.0 USB or regular USB slot, and an Ethernet slot. You can transfer internet to another device with this Ethernet plugin. It comes with user friendly instructions on how to install the driver into the device so that it works properly. For such a small product it performs a lot of magic for electronic lovers. I definitely recommend this Dell Adapter to anyone that wants a high quality adapter for their multiple devices instead of multiple lengthy cords and heavier less portable options to perform the same jobs. I love how lightweight, yet efficient this adapter is and I am very pleased with its performance, quality, and best of all its value. There were no malfunctions and it’s output quality was fantastic. I definitely plan on getting a second to just leave at home and leave this as the to go adapter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It worked for awhile - now, it's spotty I've had this for a year now using it with my XPS 13 (2017). It worked perfectly for a couple months. Now, every time I touch it, the monitors disconnect. You can't use 3 ports (ie HDMI, ethernet, USB) at a time - the max I have gotten to work is 2 ports. Sometimes, you have to unplug the HDMI 4-5 times until it recognizes the monitor. If that doesn't work, reconnect the USB-C cable a couple times. Only once have I had to restart everything for the the adapter to work. I have a Dell laptop, Dell monitor (U2417H) and Dell adapter...I thought everything would work properly..

I wanted to just unplug one thing when I picked up my laptop, but the Ethernet port doesn't work at all and the HDMI port results in display flicker about every second or so, which is untenable. If I plug my external monitor into the laptop HDMI port directly, the display works great. Windows 10 on XPS 15 laptop.

My apple adapter is working fine so I know it's not the computer. I've tried every port and nothing can be detected (hdmi, ethernet, or usb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This USB Type C adapter is unpredictable. Worked a couple of times then stopped working since. This USB Type C adapter from Dell is flawed and unpredictable in its performance. Worked a couple of times then stopped working. After numerous attempts to update drivers and workarounds, the adapter still failed to successfully connect the HDMI cable to the large screen. In fact, none of the ports on the Dell DA200 port was working. Other Type C adapters still worked perfectly so I concluded that there was a serious compatibility issue with this Dell Adapter with the USB C port on my Dell XPS 13. It would be nice if Dell Support pages had a clear list of steps to trouble shoot this issue - otherwise my Dell DA200 adapter is one expensive piece of plastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful I bought this adapter for my XPS 13 Convertible which is a bit short on ports. If you use one (micro USB port for power and the other for a wireless mouse, you are clean out of ports. I had expected that this adapter would sport at least two or three mini USBs. It only has one. On the other hand, it does allow simultaneously hooking a second screen. And it is shorter than the USB micro-to-mini adapter that comes with the laptop, which means it is less in the way of the mouse. So, I am glad I have it, but still need my separate multi-USB hub adapter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Poor construction and unreliable I've had this for about a month - it was meant to enable me to connect my laptop to two monitors (one with D-Sub and the other with HDMI connectivity. The first problem is that you can't plug in an HDMI and D-SUB cable in because the ports are too close to each other and the D-SUB plug will obstruct the HDMI and vice versa. So, I had to plug the D-SUB into the adapter and the HDMI into the laptop itself. This worked fine for a few weeks. However, recently the adapter just doesn't work - my Dell laptop registers that I've plugged it in but it just won't project on to the display that's connected via D-SUB through the adapter. I'm now back to plugging in HDMI, and D-SUB directly into the laptop to be able to use two monitors without the need for this accessory. Waste of money and not an essential buy if you have a laptop with sufficient ports anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bring back the USB version of this! Works as an adapter, but not great for all situations. If you have a Latitude 7389 and one of the power ports become defective you can either use this adapter, or charge your device. The issue with the USB-C to HDMI/VGA is that your docking stations WD15 is not compatible with a 3rd monitor. But the USB version of this would allow the 3rd monitor. By going to USB-C there is not a port on the WD15 docking stations forcing the user to plug in their docking station & additionally plug in the adapter.

The monitor goes blank and states there is no connection. I have since bought a USB-C to HDMI port without any of these issues, meaning that there is a reliability issue for sure with this product, and based on all these reviews we all can't be wrong. Do yourself a favour and do not buy this unreliable overpriced product, and spend your hard earned elsewhere!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works For Me Purchased this 6 months ago and it has worked just fine. It's compact and easy to pack. I am careful when I use it that it is supported on something. I can imagine if the USB-C cable was put under to much strain that it may cause connection problems. But for me it has worked great and having all the connections in a single adapter is a bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stopped working after only a handful of uses. After using this product about 6-10 times within a year, during which it was mostly stored in a drawer, it completely stopped working. I contacted tech support, and after two hours of troubleshooting, I was advised that the device was dead and that since it was just out of warranty (by a few weeks) that I would need to purchase another. When it was working, it worked fine and was rather easy to use. However, its design made it awkward to use with a XPS 12 as it dangled from the side due to the short "stubby" connection wire. Likewise awkward when attempting to use it on a XPS 15, but not as much but it took hours with tech support just to get the XPS 15 to recognize the device. It may be a convenient tight packaging of the several connections but I would much rather spend half as much to buy each of the components separately elsewhere, which is exactly what I wound up doing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect all in one Hooked this up to my laptop and my desktop and it helps me connect the devices I need in one central device. Very useful tool to have. The only downfall is the VGA and HDMI ports are on the same side and close to each other so it is nearly impossible to use both of those at the same time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small footprint This is a great device that will have your desktop looking neat and orderly in a snap. There is nothing more aggravating than have your area a big mess. This is very easy to use and install. I was surprised how little space it used up so you will not have to worry about losing space. The installation is a snap and is easy to use. I am not disappointed at all and just wished I had it sooner. I always use Dell products because I am always happy with performance of the products they make and this is also a great device to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Missing Display Port Just got the new XPS 15 which is great. Very excited about USB-C 3.1. Got this adapter which I am returning because it replicates VGA and HDMI but the computer already has HDMI. Really looking for a replicator dock like this that I can stash in my bag that has DVI, VGA, and Mini Display Port. A real bonus would be an ethernet port and a USB-C input/output for charging! Looking all over for such a cable but having a real hard time finding anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy Travel Adapter Haven't used this yet, but it will be very handy when travelling with my laptop. It has the right ports and will only use one port on the laptop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great Plugged it in to my Dell XPS 9350 and it works perfectly. Very compact as well, considering all the features it includes. Only downside is the price tag it comes with, I wouldn't have purchased it without the rewards I had from my laptop purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes, it really does break that fast As almost every other review has stated, this connector broke within about 5 weeks of me getting it. Thankfully my company purchased it and not myself. We have decided to switch to docking stations instead of this horribly designed dongle. Please save your money and get something else.. anything. Also worth saying that if you have a normal sized VGA cable, say like the one that CAME with your Dell monitor, the HDMI port will be blocked and unusable

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps me connected This adapter lets me connect my laptop to do multiple tasks. Its small and doesn't take much room which is good. Works well with the internet and all my devices. I can take this with me when I travel which is especially useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfect. Not sure why others have issues. Despite what other reviews have said, I had NO problems with this device. I plugged it in and it worked immediately. I do keep pride in staying up to date on ALL drivers, Windows Updates, and the latest Windows OS. My good experience may have something to do with having Dell Update installed and keeping firmwares, BIOS, drivers, etc... at the most current versions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only supports single external display Has ports for both HDMI and VGA, so we assumed dual-monitor support. Given that we're using this with a Latitude 7370, which has zero usable ports on it, we thought this adapter would work for a dual monitor docking station. Apparently not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Just as advertised This device function just as advertised for me. It was recognized by my dell instantly and all ports worked as expected. It does not support multiple monitors as stated in a previous review but is not advertised to do so either. Dell has other Dock available for this purpose if that is what you are looking for. There newest even supports 3 monitors.
