Testing for this unit simply amounted to opting for the USB power option to begin. I then switched and used the wall main option. Both options functioned equally well with no interruptions or problems. The balance of the setup was plugging in two 1080P 25" monitors into the DIV-2X 2185 control unit.

The unit performed exactly as advertised. Switching between Clone and Stretch mode was done by moving switch #1 to on or off, with switch # 2 being the blanking-time adjustment. Switches 3-8 each remove an increasing amount of pixels for the bezel compensation feature. Not much to add here as it is a simple concept, executed simply, and that is its intention. I did note that the included DVI cable could stand to be another 6-12" longer to afford a few more placement options for the unit when in use.
