Summary: To be clear, all of my hardware is rated as being compatible with this product. So this is how it behaves under the best of conditions. I've been using this product for about a year now and it definitely has its quirks.
Excerpt: I ASSUMED that this device could be used with a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter. This is not true. The connection from the PC to the TripleHead2Go DP Edition MUST be a true DisplayPort signal, with no adapters. If your PC has only HDMI video outputs, look elsewhere.
Summary: Rather than hook up 3 monitors to a mac book air, I would recommend just getting one big screen. The TripleHead2Go essentially just makes your 3 monitors one big screen and does a fairly poor job of doing so. In my case, I already had three monitors so it was slightly cheaper to invest in this unit.
Summary: I had to update my AMD video card drivers in order to get Eyefinity setup as described above. Unfortunately Dell does a horrible job of supplying the compatible drivers, and the ones from AMD's website don't work. Your best option is the modded drivers supplied by "LeeKM".
Pros: It can power two monitors at 3840x1080 (Full HD for two 1080p monitors) at 60hz.
Cons: I bought this so that I could connect my three Dell E2414H up to my Alienware M18x R2 at 5760x1080 resolution while only using the mini DP. When you hook three monitors up to this device, it can only power them at a lower resolution. It was close to the resolutions that I used 20 years ago. I bel...
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.
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.?
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.
Pros: Easy To Install, Easy To Use, Reliable Performance
Pros: Works like advertised Only makes sense if you travel with multiple monitors however absurd that may sound
Cons: PRICE PRICE PRICE, this should essentially be a $30 adapter for the convenience of extending your desktop, if your going to spend over $100 or $300 you may as well get an EYEFINITY in the RADEON grahpics cards and at least you get more connections higher performing computer and the ability to bui...
Summary: I am trying to extend my laptop with two additional monitors. I first tried the DualHead2Go Analog, but the external monitors were so blurry it gave me a headache. A conversation with a support rep told me I needed to by the Digital version, so I tried the TripleHead2Go Digital (thinking I could add...
