Matrox TripleHead2Go Digital SE External Multi-Display Adapter Conclusion:
Working and gaming with the Matrox TripleHead2Go Digital SE Multi-Display Adapter was a very pleasant experience. The device just screams quality; no cheap plastic is involved and the finish is almost perfect. Connecting and setting up the Matrox TripleHead2Go Digital SE was straight forward; all you need to do is follow the four steps on the back of the box and then install the Matrox PowerDesk software. The result is up to three extra monitors or projectors connected and looking great (six if you have a second DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort handy to connect another TripleHead2Go Digital SE device!). The image quality is on the same standard as the great build quality: very clear, vibrant, and without any distortion. The Matrox TripleHead2Go Digital SE is a small device with huge potential. Laptop users will find it a very convenient - and affordable - way to gain that extra screen real estate without the need to invest in a desktop system. Keep in mind that the performance you will see with the Matrox unit depends on the graphics chip feeding it - the more powerful the chip, the smoother the performance will be.
While Matrox improved the bundled accessories that come with the package by adding a Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable to the list, the mandatory online software download still represents a drawback and could render the installation impossible in certain circumstances. An all-included installation package is especially critical for situations where the system used in tandem with the Matrox TripleHead2Go Digital SE does not connect to the internet by default.
