This review is from: Matrox Graphics eXpansion Module DualHead2Go Digital SE video converter
Pros: Allows you to add 2 monitors to your laptop configuration instead of the default 1. Very small form factor. Comes with the necessary cables to hook up to your laptop.
Cons: The software disc that is included with the product is nothing more than an autorun file that links you to the downloads section of their website. The disc contains no software. If you try to install the software after downloading it from the website, the installation fails with a generic error. (Vista x64). Fortunately, the device works without their software. Also, the device does not come with a power adapter and you must use up a USB port to power the device. There is an AC power port on the back of the device, but I couldn't find anywhere that sold the particular one I needed, nor could I find a retailer that sold the device with an AC adapter.
Other Thoughts: If you think that you'll be able to maximize your windows efficiently with this device you are wrong. Maximizing your window will span both monitors that are attached to this device. Perhaps the software for this product would help with this, but as I said, I was unable to install it.
