Is there a DVI version of this, http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20051108-5539.html that works with Macbook Pro so I can have dual DVI displays?

You would just use the DVI to VGA adapter that was included with your MBP and a VGA cable to connect to this device. Or get a DVI to VGA cable.

Looks like it should work, but whether you can get it in the UK or not???

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

I was investigating this question, too, as I prepare to switch to a Mac. I've been thinking about he 24" iMac and eliminating my dual dispaly (or keeping a 20" LCD to the side), or going with a MBP if I could use dual displays (not the MBP screen). Thanks for the link to this product review. In addition, I found the following page on MAxtor's site which shows compatibility to the Macs (and even an option to hook up 3 screens). Looks like about $150-$170 online, depending on the store.

Is anyone using this with a MB or MBP?

Or you could wait for OSX drivers for this baby and pick up a USB hub:
