Hello Everyone,

I know it is possible to drive way more than 2 monitors with newer MBPs, but I have a 2009 MBP and was wondering if it's possible to drive 2 external monitors? I've seen varying reports on if this is possible with OSX Mountaion Lion and the older 2009 MBPs.

I did find a few videos around this, this fore example:

However, I saw some comments that it does not work for OSX Mountain Lion. So wanted to ask in the forums and see if anyone is using this (or a similar product) to drive 2 external monitors?



Thanks in advance!

I got the j5 create USB 3 adapter. Doesn't rely on displaylink drivers and is working for me so far even with 1080 videos. I wasn't interested in splitting the image like the matrox requires.

Bumping this up, just ordered monitor #2.

Anything else besides the matrix dualhead2go device to do this?
