This is the actual configuration as seen from the Mavericks’ Monitor proprieties

Known Issues:

  1. When the Belkin Dock is exposed to direct sun light my MBA sometimes has kernel panics caused by the heat.
  2. The VE228 doesn’t work correctly in the fullHD resolution but I am going to have it changed as soon as possibile.
  3. I guess the MBA is at its limit: Mission Control is a bit laggy over the three monitors but during my daily working routine I don’t experience any other issue.
  4. The cables! It is nice to have one single thunderbolt cable connected to my MBA but behind it it’s mess!

    Cables everywhere!
