Top Customer Reviews
1. That you intend to dedicate the product to a particular hardware configuration, and not constantly change to different monitors, etc.
2. That you have a powerful enough graphics processor GPU in your source computer.
I purchased this product to extend my work laptop screen real-estate. As touted in specifications, the product gives you one extra display, that is stretched across multiple monitors. What I did not realize, is that the GPU on my laptop, would not support high resolutions in that extended display. Matrox does make a utility, that will figure out what resolutions can be supported, based on your GPU, but good luck getting the top resolution supported. I FULLY RECOMMEND running this utility before you get the product, or you may be sorely disappointed. Again, don't expect to get that top resolution -- it's partially dependent on the monitors you run with it, based on the variety of refresh rates and resolutions supported. Old crappy monitors will give you less options. BUT WAIT -- there's more -- I need to only run a 3rd monitor some of the time (when training people), and most of the time, I only need two monitors. Well, let me tell you...the setup software is extremely temperamental. After contact with support I was finally found out, if you connect only two monitors, you need to use output 1 and 3...if you plug into output 1 and 2, it will never finish configuration properly, and act like a monitor is missing. I can partially understand that (think about the old SCSI BUS termination days), but nowhere does it tell you this. After I finally got this thing working with 2 monitors (at a crappy y axis resolution of 800), I left for the night, and my laptop did it's sleep mode thing. When I got back, I might as well have been starting from scratch the multi-monitor config was completely hosed...which was a serious setback, given all the BS I had to endure to get this thing working properly. I rebooted and expected things to return somewhat to normal, but no dice. SO...the setup utilities. I understand that you can't anticipate every possible config and hardware combination, but the Matrox config software 'itself' comes with no documentation, and the 'in program' errors and logs are not at all useful to figuring out problems. You are pretty much left to looking up articles and monkeying around with this thing endlessly. SO...let me be clear: I am not trashing this product, but it does have MANY idiosyncrasies. It's not for the faint-hearted -- I have over 20 years experience in very technical IT areas, and this product still left me very frustrated. To it's credit, I have seen it perform terrific in defense command posts where the hardware configuration is static, and high end graphic cards are employed. Bottom-line...you absolutely need to pair this with a desktop/laptop with a decent graphics processor, and monitors/projectors that support a wide variety of resolutions and refresh rates.
Once it arrived (speedily, I must admit), it took us several days and a 1 hour international call to customer service (I live outside of the US) to figure out why it wasn't working: turns out you can't connect it with DVI to HDMI adapters. According to customer service "HDMI is picky that way". We had to use DVI to VGA adapters, and that worked pretty well. Also, you can't use very long cables (ours were 4.5 meters) because it simply won't work.
Apart from that, setting up the resolution SHOULD be as easy as right clicking on the desktop and selecting the right options, but no cigar. It takes a nifty combination of that and screwing around with the Matrox utility to get things running. I won't get into detail because this ain't no user manual and, quite frankly, I already forgot the damn process.
Just beware. You'll be spending some time getting the 3 screens going.
