    I found a work around. It's not the best, but it is functional and good for my needs programing/reading etc. There is a small inconvenience with the displays switching monitors, but it only occurs when removing or adding a display after initial setup. All external monitors work in clamp-shell mode. and i have no mouse lag between monitors

    The workaround

    1. Connect Display link to MB port (1).
    2. Connect monitor 1 (horizontal) to display link via HDMI.
    3. Connect USB hub to MB port (2).
    4. Connect monitor 2 (vertical) to USB hub via HDMI.
    5. Connect power to MB via USB hub
    6. Connect external SSD via display link
    7. (optional) Connect Ipad via sidecar to MB for a third extended monitor and controller using touch screen/pencil features

    Here's a list of the equipment/systems i'm running

    - MacBook Pro M1, Big Sur 11.2.2

    - Ipad Pro 12.9 (2020)

    - Monitor 1 (horizontal) Samsung 34-Inch SJ55W Ultra-wide

    - Monitor 2 (vertical) LG 27" 27MN60T-W Class FHD IPS Monitor

    - Plugable USB 3.0 and USB-C Dual 4K Display Docking Station with DisplayPort and HDMI for Windows, DisplayLink Manager 1.3.0 (Build 56.111)

    - Uni USB C Hub 4K, USB Type C 6-in-1 Adapter with 4K HDMI, 100W Power Delivery, 2 USB 3.0, Micro/SD Card Readers, Thunderbolt 3 Compatible and MacSanDisk,

    - SanDisk 1TB Extreme Portable SSD (1050MB/s)

    - Logitech MX Keys Advanced Illuminated Wireless Keyboard for Mac

    - Logitech M720 Wireless Triathlon Mouse

    Hope this helps as a workaround until Apple and DisplayLink work this out.
