    Matrox D2G-DP2D-MIF reviews

    DualHead2Go Digital ME Graphics eXpansion Module is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised - perfect for me Works perfectly for me. I use it in conjunction with a Belkin Thunderbolt 2 Express Dock to give me a docking solution for my MacBook Air that gets me access to an external keyboard and mouse, ethernet, sound and from the dock to this wee beastie via Thunderbolt and one USB for dual displays. Easy and quick to set up (I plugged it all in and it went). I've not tried it for video (apart from a few YouTube clips that worked fine), so can't confirm or deny those reports. The two displays show up as one big display on the MacBook, which is less than perfect but entirely manageable. Has worked flawlessly for the last couple of weeks since it arrived.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, but can be temperamental It is easy to wire up and install the configuration code. Had a little trouble selecting the correct resolution that works with both monitors. (Have two of the same model of monitor, but one has a earlier firmware level.) It is attached to a MacBook Pro. There is no issues when booting the system while it is attached. There are sometimes issues with sync rate on one of the monitors when attaching it after coming back from a meeting. Sometimes turning off and on the monitor helps. Other times, I have to reboot the MacBook.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Performance But Have To Repower It Purchased this because our church is using Propresenter and had to split a HDMI between a HDMI projector and A CEREVO Video switcher. Product works beautifully except we have to disconnect the USB Power connector after starting up the Mac. After restarting the DualHead2Go everything works great. No problems what so ever. Previously we used a standard HDMI splitter and could not get consistent results and the DualHead2Go provides consistent results, even with the restarting the USB power. We used a number of HDMI splitter and by far this was the only one that provided consistent results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended I have a 2015 Macbook Air, and use the Matrox to spread the Mac's desktop across three monitors (the Mac, and two external 24 HP monitors). The connection was so simple: the Matrox includes the mini display port and usb cables, and I connected the Matrox to the HP monitors with 2 DVI cables. No configuration was necessary: as soon as I connected the Matrox to the Macbook Air it just worked. What a great product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost everything I was hoping for.. I recently purchased the DualHead2Go Digital ME. I have it connected to 2 Dell monitors - a 22 and a 24. Generally, it works fine and the setup was easy. However, there are a couple shortcomings: 1) The manuals/documentation are not very good. Thankfully, it's pretty much plug-n-play - but the manuals need improvement. 2) You cannot spin one of the monitors 90 degrees and use one as a vertical monitor. This is because the Matrox box fools your computer into thinking the 2 monitors are really one very very long monitor. Spinning one of them 90 degrees can't happen - because that would be spinning 1/2 of your monitor. This is unfortunate. Other than these 2 items, I am quite please. The box is nicely built and the cables are long and are a good quality.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Great....Now. While I can highly recommend the Matrox DualHead2Go, the cables that came with the product were faulty. I had nothing but problems at first (intermittent, which is more frustrating than if it did not work at all), and called Matrox Tech Support. Leo at Matrox first thought it was the DVI to HDMI adapters I was using. Changed that to straight DVI cables; no joy. After calling Matrox again and working with Leo (who was very helpful), we determined that it was the DisplayPort (mini-DVI, Macbook Pro) to DVI cable that was bad. I was told that I could contact Matrox Customer service and that they would send me out another cable....decided to forgo that and bought myself a decent cable. Once I swapped that out, the product worked and has continued to work beautifully. Would give it 5 stars if not for the cable issues.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Less than hoped for Purchased to add a third monitor to a large venue projection environment to provide information to the stage. I was able to add a third monitor that mirrors a second monitor, but could not wrestle this thing into submission to create a third, separate monitor. It also causes the mouse to briefly hang, making it frustrating to operate projection software that is timing dependent. This is on a 2011 iMac with the latest OS.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from FINALLY! A Dual Monitor solution for Mac Book that works! I have tried a few different low prices adaptors, and have been disappointed with them all. The MATROX adaptor is EVERYTHING it says it is, and is well worth the investment. Finally I have full separate screens on my Mac Book Pro Air, and the laptop screen as a 3rd option. True plug n' play installation, but be sure to purchase the right cables and adaptors. This unit has SVDI out for Mon 1 and Mon 2. Got the adaptors to HDMO for $5 each, and they work great.
