      Works as advertised. We had something like this in the Army so I knew it was a good brand. Like a charm!

      Note: does not work well with all screen

          Comments about Matrox DualHead2Go Digital ME Graphics eXpansion Module:

          Along with all the positive reviews, it's important to note that this produce does NOT work well with all screens. I tried the Matrox Dual Head for a pair of 24" mac cinma displays -- with two different macbook pro computers -- and it failed to work with both. I don't know why. Lots of time on forums and even with tech support at Matrox never solved the problems (for one older MBP the 2nd screen simply never worked at all; for the 2nd newer mac book pro the 2nd screen blinked to black frequently, for long periods).

          I'm giving the Matrox Dual Head two stars mostly because I think they need to work on this issue, and make sure that their tech support is aware of it. I spent a lot of time trying to get these configurations to work. If someone simply warned me that it didn't work well with the cinema display (and that other options like the Diamond USB adapaters work very well) it could have saved me a ton of time and stress.

          Needed to add expand my Imac desktop using existing monitors. After a long search I found this box and it super. It's a bit different then adding a graphics card into a PC. It splits the monitor out across as many monitors that you connect. It will make whatever you plug in a standalone monitor and split the signal across whatever you plug in.
