The models are confusing.

  • Excerpt: There are 3 variations of the Matrox triplehead2go and though i did my research I still ended up with the wrong product and i am in the AV industry. I purchased the Digital SE edition and it came with Display port connections. I understood it was HDMI and even though i got an adaptor it still would not work. This needs to be explained CLEARLY so as not to create confusion.

Made it work, after some time

Joseph F., Newegg

  • Summary: I had the hardest time getting the DVI input to work with consistency. I used a tested good DVI-D cable, as well as the (very short) one provided. Ended up using the VGA input (it was for general office use, no gaming).
  • Pros: Worked on Win 7 -64 Pro. To some extend, it did what it promised, seemed well made, firmware updates & software updates (a must!) worked. Software actually worked fairly well.
  • Cons: Dated. Limited resolutions. For some odd reason, no native video Win 7 support (need to use their software) The specs are somewhat confusing, e.g., what monitors today go as low as 50Hz.?

Creates a "big monitor" w/bad res.

  • Excerpt: Basically, the TripleHead2Go DP tricks the computer into thinking you have attached 1, very wide monitor. The signal is split over 3 screens. I am using this product on a MacBook Pro 15" (2.5 GHz Intel Core i7, 8GB 1333 MHz DDR3 RAM) with 3-24" LED monitors. The resulting max res pumped to the attached monitors (on my 15" MacBook Pro) is 4080 x 760 which yields 1360 x760 per screen (~VGA res.), or about ~72% to ~80% of the Mac PowerBook's higher 1680 x 1050 resolution.
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Easy To Use, Reliable Performance
  • Cons: Poor Graphics Quality

Difficult setup

Bill Simpson, Amazon

  • Summary: I had to get tech support to remote in to my system to make the three 24" screens viewable. When I (following the install instructions) installed the device out of the box, it would not display a readable screen. The very helpful Matrox tech support person said it was due to my video resolution and could only be fixed by accessing the system remotely. He did make a change and the screens all displayed.

Things to be aware of.

Amazon Fan, Amazon

  • Summary: Each monitor must be the same resolution as you can't run different resolution monitors like you do in Windows. Also, Windows sees the 3 monitors as 1 monitor, so your task bar at the bottom stretches across all three monitors. As someone who is used to running 2 monitors recognized by Windows I was surprised to see that area of the screen not usable with my 3 monitors. You could change your task bar however to be vertical and that would probably solve that issue.
