              I use this product to display dual monitors (2 external monitors) from my laptop. Installation is very easy. Only draw back is that when certain programs are maximized they span both screens when I like to have my windows maximized in either monitor. It's so easy to use 2 of my co-workers have also purchased and installed this product on their laptops.

                I use this for multimedia displays.
                It takes a VGA out and splits it to two projectors. Your computer sees it as one wide screen. I had no problems installing and using.

                Comments about Matrox DualHead2Go External GXM for Windows:

                I got this to conenect a pair of Viewsonic VP191b with a DELL M90 workstation. It was working just out of the box. I got a bigger desktop right away.

                The problem came with the color matching. The flat panels are plugged to a Quadro NVIDIA via the digital connectors and at the same time to the DH2G-A via the analog inputs. It was very hard to get the same colors using the analog inputs, compared those displayed using the digital inputs. I understand they are different technologies, but at the end, I was able to get a reasonably approach.

                I also bought it to play some racing games, but only Nascar 2002 exploits this capabillities, after applying a patch. Not Xpand Rally nor NFS (a par of version).

                At the end, I'm happy saving electric energy. Now I do not have to use a 500 W workstation and still use a dualhead destop.

                    The hardware works fine but I was trying to use an analog DualHead2Go unit on a computer with DVI out and mosr DVI to VGA adapters I could find would not work with the Matrox hardware and the one you can buy off their website doesn't work either.

                    The Matrox software has a compatability problem with MS Word 2003 too.

                    The 2 units I purchased are now installed and working but it was hard to find an adapter and we are using them without the software. Matrox tech support didn't seem very useful either.
