    So I currently have my Macbook Pro connected to one display through a thunderbolt-to-hdmi cord. But now I'm thinking about adding on another display to have one on each side, so my question is.... what is the best route for me to go cable-wise to do this? Thunderbolt-to-multiHDMI, thunderbolt to multi something else?

    • The DualHead2Go is one solution, just bear in mind that the two monitors will act as one large monitor so having your MBP in the middle is hardly practical.
    • You could use a USB to DVI adaptor which is cheaper than the DH2G, but performance is crap due to the slow USB bus.
    • You could use one thunderbolt display->some other thundberolt device->non-thunderbolt display

    Other than using 2 thunderbolt displays, those are your only options.
