My monitor setup was a 30" Apple Display and a 2407 Dell. I decided to see if the "Must all be exact same res" info was correct, mostly because buying 2 more of either diplay seemed silly.
The adapter isn't ideal and would frequently drop the group. The software is smart enough to arrange the 3 displays into a res that works. It took the 30" down from 2560x1600 to 1920x1200.thus allowing a desktop of 5760x1200.
It would lose contact frequently at first and split back into 3 mirrored displays but this is nearly 100% gone now.
In any case, it seems that the "all monitors must have same res" rumour is not a hard and fast rule. Most likely they need to all be same aspect ratio.
Interestingly, the software even allows you whether you want the odd size screen to scale itself to full res, or just place black all around the center. Need to have more people try other odd screen res. See what works.
awesome and thank you. saves me from buying a third mount to arrange my 3 soyo's all in portrait mode . i knew it . course now i have to spend more to get that living room display lol. i was just going to move the westy into the living room
