This arrangement works quite well with the exception of the Open GL problem mentioned in the review. I am not sure if the other devices mentioned above have the same limitations.
That's a pretty neat setup using that OWC USB adapter to hook up a 2nd external monitor to a MBP. $98 bucks is pricey...but then the Matrox products are certainly much pricier!
p.s. Of course a little self-promotion there!
p.p.s. Actually..I just went to OWC...and found this product that seems to very similar to what "Slydude" referenced:
It's a USB video adapter from NewerTech...and is on special for $64.99.
Of course you can get the original OWC product for even less:
...it's on special for $49.99!!!
