Summary: The Matrox DualHead2Go Digital SE allows you to extend your desktop for hardware that has limited capabilities. This device only takes input from a DisplayPort and most hardware that features a “professional” graphics port can easily drive three monitors. I’ve seen some laptops that do have a DisplayPort plug but only feature Intel HD integrated graphics, which in many cases will not drive more than two monitors.
updated Review: Add two displays to your Mac with the DualHead2Go ME
1 November 2012
Conclusion: The Matrox DualHead2Go ME is a device that does exactly what it’s meant to do: add desktop space by adding DVI displays. It’s simple to connect, and the PowerDesk software makes optimizing your display setup really easy. Updated 11/1/12 at 8:15 a.m. PT to correct information about Thunderbolt connectivity and to clarify DVI display support. Also updated the mouse rating to a 4 out of 5.
Pros: Easy to use, Adds screen real estate to Mac laptops, Works in a Thunderbolt daisy chain
Excerpt: Matrox essentially invented the idea of driving multiple monitors from one computer. The ability to spread your workload across multiple screens has long been an excellent aid to productivity.
