Wish it had worked with my system.

Summary: Did not work with my system, even though I ran all the test to make sure it was, prior to ordering all the pieces to make it work. Had to return it. The company was very good about the return. No hassles.
Summary: I haven't gotten it to work yet. I need somebody to help me. I just haven't had time to mess with it. I hooked it up initially and everything appeared like it would work, but I couldn't get the images on the 3 screens. I have been too busy to take the time to call the company to help me, but I hope to soon.
Excerpt: I bought this card because I wanted to connect it directly to my macbook pro via thunderbolt without the need for adapters. However, it didn't work the first time I tried to used, because this particular model supports ONLY DIGITAL output. In other words, there cannot be any adapters to VGA in any part of your setup. This is important to me because I usually work with other people's projectors, and I can't always use HDMI or DVI cabling.
Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Quiet
Cons: Incompatible Wother Sys, Incompatible W Other Sys
Summary: The product worked as advertised; however, the picture just wasn't "crisp." I would get headaches after working on documents or reading smaller text. I returned the product. Also, as a note, it does not work to daisy chain these...
Summary: I have a MacBook Air and wanted to display on multiple monitors. This product had some strong ratings as being very capable. It's been two weeks and still not working. First of all the website is misleading and did not show the correct unit to order for my MacBook Air. There is little consistency among the various references to products. It's just plain sloppy documentation and presentation on the web site.
Excerpt: The project works once you figure it out. The driver downloads very slow and the instructions leave much to be desired. Buy this product only if you are expert with computers or you will send it back. Very sure the mfg does not Beta test their instructions.
Pros: Good Graphics Quality, Reliable Performance, Works fine once up
Excerpt: Once you get it setup, it looks awesome. I connect my Lenovo laptop to 3 short-throw projectors to get a really wide digital backdrop image for my church. Setup is a little tricky. You need to turn off mirroring and extend the display in the graphics setup in order for this to work. Included documentation is worthless. Unfortunately, after 2 months of usage, the plastic part in the USB port broke off. We'll see whether Matrox honors their warranty.
Summary: This is an excellent product, but it would not work in my application, so 3 stars. Ease of use is low because you need to be above average in computer literacy to set this up. I wanted to hook my Macbook Pro 17" Core i7 with Nvida GT330 graphics card up to 2 or 3 1280x1024 DIV monitors running at 60hz. The Matrox website indicated for the resolution I wanted to run, I would not need the Dual-Link DVI adapter from Apple (cost $100).
Summary: I had the triplehead2go for about two weeks. The first week everything worked fine and it was absolutely stunning to fly Microsoft Flight Simulator on three screens. Unfortunately the unit had stopped seeing all three of my monitors. I gave the product every benefit of the doubt over the course of the second week making sure the reasons for it not working wasn't due to user error, cables, bad monitors or incorrect software configs etc.
