Product Description

Product Description

DVI to Mini DisplayPort with USB Audio Support for Apple LED Cinema Display 24-inch and 27-inch.

From the Manufacturer

The Kanex C247d is perfect for those who want to utilize the Apple Cinema Display with legacy Mac models that are equipped with a DVI port. The C247d will actively convert the video signal from DVI and integrate audio using USB. The USB pass-through also works with the iSight camera, and provides power to the adapter.

So bring your MacBook Pro, Mac Mini, or PC that still uses DVI technology up to speed with this unique solution. Extend your desktop and view all your content on the beautiful Apple Cinema Display and at the same time utilize the display's built-in speakers for superb audio. It even works with the iMac 27-inch! The C247d is truly a one-of-a kind confidante.

Designed exclusively for use with Apple�s LED Cinema Displays

With the 24- and 27-inch Apple LED Cinema Displays in mind, this adapter features a cable length of nearly 11.8 inches, effortlessly lengthening the reach of your Cinema Display.

Have you heard?

Since DVI does not support audio, the C247d transfers audio via USB to the built-in speakers of the Apple LED Cinema Display. Now you can watch and listen to your favorite movies, songs, or just video-chat with friends and family.

PCs never looked so good

Marginal numbers of PCs out there are equipped with the DVI interface making it difficult to combine PCs with the Apple Cinema Display. The C247d is your ticket to getting content from your PC to the stunning Apple display. It's the best of both worlds.

Have a blast for your past Macs

Dust off the old Mac. The C247d actively converts a DVI signal to a Mini DisplayPort signal. Now you can hitch your 2006 � early 2008 MacBook Pro, and 2005 � mid 2007 Mac Mini to the new Apple Cinema Display with Mini DisplayPort input.

This item is advertised on both the manufacturer's web site as well as Amazon's description as supporting the 27" Apple Cinema display. While technically true (you can attach the display, and see an image), it is nonsense, as this is a single DVI interface, which is limited to 1920x1200 resolution. The 27" has a 2560x1440 resolution, which requires dual link DVI. Seriously -- who would want to pay the $900 for the Apple Cinema display and another $130 for this little device just to run in a non-native resolution.

Now, I'm sure the device is great for the 24" display (which is probably what it was meant for originally), but it's just not the right adapter for the 27". The only device I could find that actually does dual link DVI is the Atlona AT-DP400. Unfortunately, that device costs even more, but at least it actually runs full resolution on this monitor.

I call this a 1% item because that is about how much of the time that it works. This is supposed to be a plug and play item, and about 1% of the time it is. The other 99% of the time it just doesn't seem to want to work. Communicated with the manufacturer and they say I am doing everything correctly, but still it doesn't work. Next step is to return to manufacturer for a replacement. Hope that cures the problem.
