The package contents include a mini USB to USB cable, installation CD and two connector heads for DVI to HDMI & DVI to VGA. The Gefen adapter is a small rectangular shaped device that easily fits in the palm of your hand. it has a DVI out port on end and a mini USB port on another.  A thing I like with the Gefen device is the setup process is very easy and akin to literally being a plug and play device

Install the contents of the CD connect the device via USB to computer or laptop and the connect it to you TV or monitor via DVI, HDMI or VGA and you are good to go. Windows will recognize that a monitor is connected and you are set to use you monitor or TV.
