Excerpt: Aside from the fact that it died (would not power up, would not pass signal) after an hour, it is very specifically built to do one thing: screen spanning. It isn't for trying to assign different content to different outputs of your choice.
Summary: I've had this for a little over a year. Worked great under Win7 Ultimate... however, since the update to Win10... the USB disconnects OFTEN, all three monitors (it just did it typing this) turn black and when they reappear all windows which were open are resized and on completely different screens.
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.
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.
Summary: Purchased my adapter in December. Works as advertised - using my Laptop and 3 additional 1920 x 1080 LED monitors. Business use mostly - played Skyrim but not in triple monitor mode as Matrox hasn't released the drivers and I haven't had time to hack into it myself to make it work right.
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.
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.
Summary: All in all, I've had more good times with this then bad. I still highly recommend it to people, especially since after 2 years they finally got the firmware that wouldn't work off their site, and uploaded the firmware that works.
Pros: Great for surround gaming, been using now since January 2010. A simmers Dream! An huge boost in my productivity in graphics design having the 3 monitors as they can be set up with only this (or the newer surround gaming cards). Newer firmware allows for 5760x1080 (3x 1920x1080) but you will need ...
Cons: The support is terrible. I've had this unit for over 2 years. In those two years I have written countless emails to support telling them the firmware on their website was trash. It wouldn't install (For anyone). They said "We're aware of this and working on a fix". They said that for over 18 mont...
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.
