4 out of 5 eggsDoes what it says as long as you have two of the same monitor

Pros: - quickly and easily sets up two monitors to run from a single displayport.
- uses computer's video card to drive the monitors, instead of USB device with main CPU processing, like DisplayLink devices
- runs both of my 1080p monitors with zero issues, at native resolution

Cons: - reports both monitors as single monitor in windows and uses software tricks to enable separation of content on each window. result is that you have a single taskbar stretching across both monitors and a "maximized" window looks like it was manually expanded with the mouse instead of truely maximized.

this is the only reason i did not give a 5 egg rating.

Other Thoughts: I'm running a macbook pro and had to buy a mini-displayport to displayport adapter which newegg also carries. i use bootcamp to run Windows 7 x64 and have zero issues. i also use osx snow leopard and have not yet tried the device in osx.

the guy that gave 3 starts should have read the matrox website before purchasing this device. it clearly says that both of the external monitors have to be the same. i bought two Dell 24" 1080p monitors of the same model # because i read the website, and i have zero issues.

i have a Diamon USB Displaylink device that i was using previously. it does not have the same issue as the matrox product - it reports the USB device as a separate monitor in windows. the two things that i don't like about displaylink are: 1) it uses my primary CPU to run the monitor, which eats into my computer's performance, and 2) the displaylink video driver crashes every time my monitors go into power saver mode and then come back on.

3 out of 5 eggsProblomatic but functional.

Pros: Allows me to have 3 displays on my Macbook Pro including the MBP display its self. This makes software and web development much easier since the mac laptops do not support dual external displays. In the end it did work and I will be keeping it.

Cons: Software does not work properly with snow leapord, Matrox support told me the solution was to lock my graphics performance to high. They were also very egar to blame the problem on apple, then very happy to not deal with me any more, to the point that when I was still having problems, they just told me there was nothing more that could be done, no new unit, no refunds nothing. The problem was that one of the two external displays was not displaying in full collor, I had that old dos VGA 16 color look. Eventualy I switched the two displays around to test the cables and now they both work, if I switch them back they dont. Apparently it doesnt like it if the two external monitors are not exactly identical.

Other Thoughts: I can not comment on how this works with a PC as there are very few PC out there with display port and I do not own any of them. If you are using identical external monitors and not running 10.6.2(supposedly only .2 is affected) you should be fine but no promises.
