StarTech.com launches two USB to 4x HDMI video adapters for Microsoft Windows 11
A USB to HDMI dongle is pretty common nowadays and certainly nothing to get excited about. Amazon is littered with those adapters. Heck, even dongles that turn a single USB port into two video outputs can be found quite easily these days. But a USB adapter that offers four HDMI outputs? That's something worth noticing as it should be quite the useful tool.
And that, folks, is exactly what both the USB32HD4 and USBC2HD4 are -- USB adapters from StarTech.com that feature an impressive four HDMI ports. They are essentially the same, except the former uses USB-A, while the latter has USB-C. Both of these dongles can simultaneously output 1080p60 to a quartet of monitors. StarTech.com promises support for both Windows 10 and the all-new Windows 11; however, the company notes that neither dongle is compatible with macOS or Linux-based operating systems.
"This USB-A to 4 HDMI adapter features four video outputs, boosting your productivity by giving you more screen space to work from. With multiple displays you have the freedom to access multiple applications at the same time and reference material on one display while you compose on the other. Use the USB to HDMI multi-monitor adapter to extend or mirror your displays, or create an eye-catching video wall. The external video adapter is bus-powered, with no external power required," says StarTech.com.

The company further says, "Leveraging the USB 3.0 interface, this quad monitor adapter dongle delivers high-definition resolutions up to 1920x1080 (1080p) on all four ports. The adapter also supports 2-channel audio through HDMI. The USB Type-A to HDMI display adapter converter is equipped with a 3.3 ft. (1 m) attached USB-A cable that provides added distance between the adapter and your host device, ensuring a flexible setup. It also supports an automatic driver installation for ease of use."
The USB-A variant (USB32HD4) of StarTech.com's adapter can be purchased here now for $129.99. The USB-C version (USBC2HD4) can be had here for $137.49. If you decide to buy one, please tell me how you plan to use it in the comments below.
