It is a great product. Does as promised. This is the second of this devices that I own. I also own an analog edition DoubleHead 2 Go.

Two small problems with it. The setup is not as intuitive as it should be, and requires serveral startup cycles to get the right resolution (and it is still a tricky issue). The second issue with it is that even though you get two screens, windows treats them as one big screen. This means that you can not split them. So you basically have only to config options:

a) Laptop - Screen - Screen
b) Screen - Screen - Laptop

For me the best option would be

c) Screen - Laptop - Screen

But this configuration is not possible unless you like to have it as one of the two supported configs (a or b) logically and physically as (c) But then you would get wierd warping of windows as you move from one screen to another. I do not know if this is a limitation because of windows, but if those two issues were resolve I would rate this product 5 stars.

On more thing, before you buy you need to go to the Matrox website to see if your Laptop's Display card is supported, and if it supports the correct resolution for the two monitors you are going to use. They have a wizard that helps you with this.

I bought the DualHead2Go (from Amazon, fulfilled through ANTOnline) to connect my macbook pro to two 24" monitors. Everything in the product said that it would work, but it didn't. After hours working with it and online with Matrox Tech Support, they finally decided that it didn't support my HP monitors in full resolution. (Your monitor has to be capable of syncing at 58Hz, which some can't.) I could still use it while losing about 25% of my screen real estate (at 60Hz), but that's not why I want two monitors! When I tried to return it, I had a small tear in the internal cardboard packaging because I couldn't figure out how to open it. ANTOnline didn't return my emails for months, and then finally told me that the return period had expired while they hadn't responded. It's been days and days of hassle. So be very careful with the DualHead2Go and especially with ANTOnline.

This is a great product to provide a wide workplace for single video output machines, or maybe for a dual screen terminal session for notebooks (without using the notebook screen as one of them). I'd waited for the digital version to come out, as I wanted to use my DVI inputs on the monitors. I had expected DVI input to the device, so was mildly disappointed to find it's VGA input, DVI output. (so back to the dvi->vga adapter for the mac).
But it works great. installed like a dream. (but did have to go to preferences and manually tell the mac that I had a 2800 wide display). works fine, the screen is stretched across the two monitors.
Lesson #1. get monitors with the thinnest side frames possible, to reduce the "gap" in the middle of the display.
Lesson #2. Adjust your preferences so that windows open up in the left or right side of the display. otherwise, they will tend to open in the middle and be interrupted by the monitor edge gap. Especially annoying when you light up a Windows session over citrix, as things like powerpoint will insist on centering the display, so you end up dragging the window to the left or right a lot.

But overall, this is great. Move my Eyetv or audio editing on one monitor and do other work on the other. Most happy with this, and a whole lot cheaper than buying a 36" monitor.

I have been using for about a month (continuousl) using my macbookpro to drive 2 external 1600x1200 screens. The setup was a bit more painful than I would have hoped, largely because Matrox seems to think that we all live in a Windows world. But once going, the hardware has been flawless. My only complaint is that Matrox did not bother to write software to give me 2 1600x1200 screens but only gives me one 3200x1200 screen. With two monitors, I have this nasty bar between the two seamless screens, and a number of mac notifications open up split between the two screens. On my PC, Matrox gave me a driver which allowed me to have two separate screens (this was for a Matrox card, I have not run the dual head on a PC). Note that the DVI (digital edition) box is only a bit more expensive and you need this to get the better resolution.

As others have noted, this is a very specialized piece of equipment. As far as I can tell, it is only useful if you want to use your notebook as your desktop and you want two monitors. But this is what I wanted.

In terms of stability, etc., just fine. Give me two non-seamless screens on a mac and it would be 5 stars if you need this box - given its limited market, its price does not seem crazy.

I'm not sure what the review suggesting that this product is not for laptops is talking about. This product is PERFECT for laptops, as most laptops only have one external monitor output. I have a Lenovo X61 tablet connected to two Dell 24" widescreen monitors using the DualHead2Go. This gives me a total resolution of 3840x1200. Setup wasn't completely intuitive, and I did have to get on the phone with Matrox tech support to help me set it up. Turned out this was a problem with the Intel graphics drivers, and Matrox tech support very knowledgeably helped me find an older Intel driver that worked better with the Matrox box. (They even did the work for me using Remote Desktop.)

It now works beautifully. My only complaint is that the software doesn't seem to react well when I hot undock, so I've gotten into the habit of shutting down the machine when I'm ready to undock and head home. A little inefficient (since Vista takes so long to shut down and reboot) but not a huge deal.

If you're thinking of buying this product make sure you carefully check the compatibility with your system. The Matrox web site has a downloadable utility that will do this for you. Do you homework so that you're not stuck with a product that won't work with your system!
