I had a USB 2.0 to DVI adapter. It was quite unresponsive, but since you’re getting a 3.0 one maybe that isn’t an issue. You probably can’t watch media on it, but what I did with mine was use the second one for my less used stuff like email program, chat etc. It was fine for that.
Mine did need a driver to work though and the manufacturer stopped making drivers after Yosemite. I didn’t even get 12 months use out of it.
The other thing was if I disconnected it while the laptop was on it crashed the whole machine.
If I were you, I’d check out the range on Amazon, sort by best rated ones and read the reviews then find the best one being reviewed on YouTube. That way you’ll get something that will work well and will be supported.
