The manufacturer has stated that it's possible to use up to six of these impressively small USB3TOHD adapters in a single 6+port USB 3.0 hub without experiencing any image degradation or performance decreases. while having such a small footprint, the adapter is designed so that it can still be used with a HDMI to DVI-I single-link dongle if need be.

The only real shortcoming with it is its single-link limitation, where it is confined to resolutions only up to 1920 x 1200. Meaning users with 2560 screens are out.

Sanko lists support for Windows XP, Vista and 7 with the USB3TOHD and it's priced at 9,800 JPY (about US $124.30).
