Increased Mouse lag since the W10 Redstone / DP Driver 8.0 Update.
I have increased Mouse lag since the W10 Redstone / DisplayLink Driver 8.0 Update. I have a 3-screen Setup here. Surface Pro 3 + the DisplayLink USB Docking Station with 2 additional Screens. Working on those 2 external Screens got a bit tedious since the W10 Redstone / DisplayLink 8.0 Update. Maybe I´m too sensitive, but I feel enough mouse lag on the external Screens to slow down my daily work a bit. I´m using the DisplayLink Adapter since 2 years now and there were highs and lows regarding lag, but Version 7.9 on Windows 10 1511 was really good. Now with the new Windows / Driver Version (and the new Driver model?) it got worse.
There is now an 8.1 Alpha available, which contains performance improvements to the mouse cursor. Please try the release from here:
If you are still seeing performance issues with the mouse cursor, please feedback in the 8.1 Alpha forum group, or through the Contact Us part of the support site. Adding a comment to this thread does not give us an easy way to respond and follow up.

I am experiencing slow wireless mouse and keyboard issues, using Windows 10 1607 and the last driver for Display Link. Please fix the issue. It is really annoying
Display Link 8.1.843.0
When do you guys fix the issue? Its horrible!
Since the anniversary update, I've not been able to watch video. The lag/choppiness is intolerable. Amazing that this has not been fixed.
I have a lagless experience with a wired mouse and a lagging experience with a wireless mouse when simultaneously connected to a laptop. The wired mouse is plugged into the docking station (Targus USB3.0 DV2K Dock w Power) and the wireless mouse directly into the laptop (in turn plugged into the docking station). If I unplug the laptop from the docking station, I have no problem with the wireless mouse.

For anyone that experiences this, I always run the displaylink windows support tool and click "System Compatibility Check" and it always fixes the mouse lag. Don't know why, but it works. http://www.displaylink.com/downloads/file?d=65
Agree with the comments below, 8.0 m3 was abysmal with win10 x64 build 1607, the 8.1 alpha helps the lag and visual glitches but it still has very high CPU usage and you can easily bog down the machine with mundane tasks.
8.1apha is certainly better than 8.0, but still no as good as previous versions. There are definitely still times when the system slows down.
this laggy mouse situation has been half cleared by the 8.1.Alpha.
it looks much better than previous version of DisplayLink drivers but still shows uncomfortable performance problem.
it's not just a mouse pointer problem.
maybe whole system performance affected by video data update on displaylink device.
8.0 M3 drivers still very poor performance with Win 10. The fan on my Surface Pro 4 is running constantly when I'm docked. Mouse is laggy. Outlook application has redraw and graphics issues.
Needs BIG improvement.
this issue is need to be fixed immediately 50% cpu usage open items but, sitting idle when the dock is plugged in

I really don't understand this 'DisplayLink' guys doing something to support their users.
They are really don't feel whats wrong with their product.
Even this unacceptable situation comes from Windows 10 AU or device manufacturers, they have to help to find out solutions for their customers.
the 8.0 M3 driver still not the solution for this situation.
I am having major issues with the slow update of the display and a little bit of mouse lag since the anniversary update to Win 10. Before this update the system ran really well. Now the screens often don't update the content properly like clicking between emails in outlook. The screen partially updates but other parts don't and you get broken messages, you think you have clicked on things (which you have) but the screen hasn't updated until you scroll up/down or minimize/maximize windows. This is killing me at work with my 4-monitor setup. Please make this update a priority as it is driving me crazy
The Mouse lag is horrible. Please make this a priority.
Windows just did a new update and knocked out my Tritton 150 USB to VGA. My monitor simply didn't work. so I purchased the UGA-165 which works great – except-- for the major mouse lag. I was advised that windows 10 was still junk but didn't listen. Well, it is worse than junk. If I wait for windows it may be until forever and that's a long, long time. Windows search hasn't worked for the last year and they still have not fixed it. Having said that - what do I do to handle this mouse issue. Please help. I actually use my computer fro business and need the second screen.
I expect kind of a fix for this horrible situation from cumulative update for Windows 10, KB3194798, dated on 11th OCT but nothing goes well.
there's no changelog for this update, it probably not to fix this situation.
the Displaylink tech is really sucks now. I can't use any sweet word for "the DisplayLink"
FIX ASAP PLEASE!!!
whenever my Yoga Pro (i7, 8GB) is slightly busy (e.g. compiling) everything(?) attached via the displaylink-adapter (i.e. 2 monitor) lag terribly.
i do not think it's the mouse directly - it's just the screen-refresh which is down to 1-5fps.
(mouse stutters, scrolling stutters, keyboard-inputs stutter, videos stutter, etc...)
everything i view on the laptop's native screen is smooth as butter...!
Intolerable! I actually had to purchase a new monitor so I could work until this bug is fixed.
Same here... freshly installed Windows 1607 on Dell XPS15 (newest generation). Downloaded the newest driver and everything was working fine. After the Update to Windows 14939 the mouse is delayed and working is hardly possible. So guess we all are waiting for a new update wether its from microsoft or from displaylink... Reinstalling the driver via your "uninstaller" didnt solve the issues.
I´ve tested our several dockingstations that work with displaylink software with a Latitude Notebook and there were no errors on Windows 1607 and no errors on Windows 14939.
Finally, I've remove Dell D3100 Displaylink dock from my surface pro 3 due to horrible delays on external display and mouse. I can't not use my laptop even just do web surfing.
there are no problem to use anything when I connect the display into miniDP port on surface pro 3 directly. I really don't understand why they still don't find solution for these problem.
