1 February 2013
Conclusion: Working and gaming with the Matrox TripleHead2Go Digital SE Multi-Display Adapter was a very pleasant experience. The device just screams quality; no cheap plastic is involved and the finish is almost perfect. Connecting and setting up the Matrox TripleHead2Go Digital SE was straight forward; all you need to do is follow the four steps on the back of the box and then install the Matrox PowerDesk software.
Pros: Excellent build quality, Great image quality, Extensive list of compatible games, USB powered, Small footprint, Simple to set up, Improved accessories bundle, Adapts to various usage needs
Summary: Matrox has been in the Graphics card business quite some time and they were always known for producing superior image quality for everyday applications instead of best performance in 3D games. Their GXM series has only received praise. Our opinion of the TripleHead2Go is the same, but it does currently have a few downsides, which make it a bit harder to recommend over the TripleHead2Go Analog.
Pros: Surround Gaming with SLI!!, Works great both in Windows and OS X, USB 2.0 used as power source, High quality cables, High quality enclosure, Can handle resolutions up to 5040 x 1050 over 3 displays, Small LED on device for display status, Solid software, Even works with modern games not listed in SGU, No Macrovision, Well packaged
Cons: Pricey, No games found that work at 5040 x 1050, only at 3840 x 1024, ATI cards have a maximum resolution of 3x 1440 x 900, Crossfire won't work in Surround gaming, New NVIDIA drivers do not support full resolution of the device yet
Connect three displays to a notebook and desktop PC or Mac

Excerpt: Creative professionals are becoming more attuned with the various suite of applications that it takes to make a great movie, DVD, or animation. More and more of these artists are being tasked to perform more functions as the needs arise, and more functions means more creative applications to learn to use. For some, there is nothing better than getting a suite of tools for just a few dollars more than the cost of one essential tool in the suite.
Conclusion: After reading about the TripleHead2Go I was impressed, after looking at it in real life I was even more impressed, and then I played around with it… it’s no toy that’s for sure. There are many ways to approach the multi-display market, whether it be making special video cards that support 3 monitors or you take a very neat and handy approach and use a TripleHead2Go.
Pros: Small and Portable, Easy to Install and uninstall, Strong Metal Casing, Use of both Digital and Analog, even though it’s a Digital Edition, Use USB for powering the unit, instead of an external power source, High Resolutions (3480x1024), Support for non 4:3 Aspects, Not only Supports Triple Head but also Dual and Single, Can be used as an Analog to Digital converter, Very Effective device to implement Triple Displays, More Cost Effective over time and saves spending l...
Cons: Cables supplied are quite short, and won’t reach to the top of an ATX tower case (this may be a problem, however the short cables prevent loss of signal, or signal distortion which may be a problem with larger resolutions).
Summary: The TripleHead2Go Digital Edition has addressed nearly every issue from their prior Triple-Head product. Not only does the unit support widescreen digital displays, but it can mix-and-match any combination of displays. The hardware’s usability is greatly improved by implementing USB power and a more intuitive port layout. The unit’s software has also been improved, featuring flexible desktop customization that beats the pants off of traditional multi-monitor support.
