That OWC device supports up to four devices on the Mac and six under Windows. You must have one for each monitor you want to attach it to. I am currently using one with my MacBook Pro. My current setup has my MacBook Pro screen, then a 24" Samsung attached to the display port, and a 19" monitor is attached to the OWC device.

I have been using this setup for several months now and the only issue I have had is that once in a while something crashes while the system is asleep. The system wakes and programs are running but I can't use the keyboard or mouse. It doesn't happen often and I haven't done much troubleshooting to work this out.

If you are interested in this device read the entire page Nick linked to. It mentions some Open GL limitations. There is also a display issue with some i5 and i7 Macs. There is a temporary fix listed there. Also, check out my review ATPM 15.08 - Review: OWC USB 2.0 Display Adapter
