For the most part, this system works well, especially for gaming. However, there are some limitations for this system – if your monitors are not identical, then the lowest native resolution will be duplicated all across the other displays. Also, if your monitors are not of the same sizes (if the size vary more than 5%), then bezel corrections are turned off.
