Any experience with Matrox tripleHead?

Does anyone have experience with the Matrox TripleHead2Go expansion modules?

My situation: I have 3 DELL U2412M Displays and a 15" Laptop. Working on NT7 on a 15" with just 1 Chart and then check for Key Market events is really creepy.

As I just upgraded my laptop with an SSD and 16 GB I don't want to invest into a desktop at this moment. So I looked around for a solution to get my displays connected with my laptop. The only product I found was Matrox.

Not the triple head, but I have used the double head for about 5 years. Works really well.

I have but no longer us a matrox dual head on my laptop. I have changed over to USB to video adapters. These have chips inside made by Displalink. Work beautifully. From memory you can have up to 6 external monitors.
I just bought my wife a Targus docking station for her laptop. It has a USB 3 connection between the laptop and the dock. On the dock it has built in power to drive the dock and laptop, ethernet, two external monitor connections, audio connections, additional USB ports.

I run a matrox triplehead2go (display port edition) with a thinkpad x1 and 3 acer 24 inch monitors; been absolutely trouble free for 2 years now. I'm not very computer savvy so when I couldn't figure out how to set it up when I got it; I called matrox and they set it up for me. Great customer service!
