multiple external monitors on Macbook Air

MacBook Air - MacRumors Forums - forums.macrumors.com
Hi all,

I have an early 2015 13" Macbook Air. I want to connect two external monitors to it. I know that the Air will support multiple monitors because I have a setup with a thunderbolt hub and a thunderbolt hard drive with two monitors. This is my setup:

Air-->thunderbolt hub-->monitor (via thunderbolt to hdmi)

Thunderbolt hub-->hard drive-->monitor (via thunderbolt to hdmi)

This works 100% perfectly. I have a second location in which I want to setup two monitors. I do not want to do the same as above because it is expensive. I do not want to use a usb-->hdmi adapter because I've tried them in the past and they made my computer crash constantly.

From what I've gathered, I can use an Apple thunderbolt display to daisy chain monitors, so Air-->apple display-->2nd external monitor (via thunderbolt to hdmi).

My question is, now that there are third party thunderbolt displays, can I do the same with them? Can I connect:

Air-->third party display (via thunderbolt)-->non thunderbolt monitor (via thunderbolt to hdmi)

Here's an example of a third party thunderbolt display:

I can't tell from the description if this has a true thunderbolt port and if what i am describing will work. Can anyone help me?

Thanks,

Nathan
