Top Customer Reviews
1) Problems waking from sleep, and
2) That the adapter consumes one of the precious USB connections in addition to the mini display port.
Note that the Apple-branded adapter has many reviews with the same complaints, so I think this is more of a design issue rather than a quality issue. Although some say the newest Apple version with firmware 1.0.3 is better.
I think I have come up with a work around that addresses both of these issues. The USB connector on the adapter appears to be for supplying power only. It also explains why the adapter freaks out when the computer wakes up: it is trying to both establish the video connection while at the same time, power is just becoming available through the USB connection.
I simply connected the USB cable from the adapter to a spare Apple iPhone USB power supply. Now the adapter has continuous power and seems to wake from sleep without issue. Doing this also freed up the USB port on my MacBook Pro previously used by the adapter.
I just did this today, but so far, so good. I'll update this review if things change.
If anyone has an alternative product that might work, please let me know. Thank you.
wanted to add , still having issues , basically upon power on and any wake from sleep, you get fuzzy. also, I am running firmware 2.0
1. overheating can occur, so as other reviewer said, unplug when you can
2. try putting your monitor in standby mode, if you step away
I have no complaints for the picture quality or lag time paired with NEC 3090WQXI @2560 x 1600 resulution.
However, it won't wake up the display sometimes, need to unplug it from either usb (power) or DP, but this happens very rarely, once a week or so while the mac is in heavy daily use, and it's unclear, if this is by some apple firmware / USB 3.0 drivers (sleep/wake) bugs... I tend to consider this Apple bugs since with 10.8.3 (beta) updates it was working more and more stable (fewer issues with each beta update).
It is also well made of quality materials (aluminum case) and not as hot as Apple genuine.
I haven't tested it at 2560 x 1440 or smaller resolutions, though.
The distortion is irregular but happens when I run either OS X (10.8.5) or Windows 7 64-bit. It looks like pixels that are the wrong color. They usually come in dashed rows or columns. They most frequently occur in mid-gray-tones, but can occur anywhere. Usually it is fully-red or fully-green pixels. The distortion is usually fixed when the monitor's display is unchanging, but moving windows or even the mouse cursor can cause the distortion to go away or change.
I should note that this monitor works perfectly fine with my desktop computer, which has an AMD 5870 card driving two of these Dells.
There is some possibility that this distortion is caused by my Gefen DVI-DL switcher that allows me to use the monitor with the laptop or the desktop. However, the desktop mode does not have the distortion, so I feel that the switcher causing it is unlikely.
