Amazing monitor running on my 13" 2012 MBP
on January 2, 2013
I'm sure others will give a much more tech-heavy review but I wanted to chime in and say this is an AMAZING monitor. I do a fair amount of photo editing and design work in CS6 (I'm not a designer by trade), but more than anything I just do work-related tasks. This monitor is incredibly sharp and has all the features you would expect.
I am running it off a 2012 MacBook Pro 13" and could not be happier. I did have a bit of a learning curve that may be of interest to some of you...having never owned such a large monitor, I (wrongly) assumed that an HDMI cable and mini-displayport adapter would get me where I needed to go. Well, the monitor certainly worked but it wasn't tack-sharp like I expected. Turns out the resolution was only (!) 1080p, the best you can get from an HDMI cable, apparently. So, I switched to a DVI cable and appropriate MDP adapter. Same result as the HDMI cable.
Then I did some research and bought--simply, it now seems--a DisplayPort cable with the mini DisplayPort on one end. And like magic the monitor sprang to life at full resolution with no adapter on the computer end. And I feel like a dummy but I learned a lot about DisplayPort technology which, as it turns out, is pretty awesome.
So if you read anything about a "Dual-link DVI adapter" or anything like that, don't fret- just get a DP cable and you're set. I hope this was helpful. If you take the plunge I think you'll really enjoy this BIG monitor!
