I tried the mini-display port to normal single-link DVI, that didn't work, so my last bet was the display port, which according to specs, can go up to 30' monitor. The Dell UltraSharp U2711 came with a display port but I needed a mini-displayport to displayport to work with my MacBookPro 15' (mid 2010). Based on the reviews I decided to give it a try since it was cheap, also it was my last other option before I had to go buy Apple's Dual-link Adapter (being the very last resort).
Gladly to say that when the cable arrived, I was very excited (and also praying that it works), I quickly connected it to my MBP and my Dell UltraSharp U2711.....and it worked!
I'm now running Dual Screen + MBP with the following configuration.
1. Dell UltraSharp U2711 @ 2560 x 1440.
2. Dell Ultrasharp 2407WFP @ 1920 x 1200. (Using a USB to DVI HD adapter from Sewell))
3. MBP LCD @ 1680 x 1050.
I hope this review will help those that are in the same situation as I was or those that I planning to upgrade their monitor to Dell Ultrasharp U2711. (By the way it is an awesome monitor, just make sure you pay that extra bit for the 5 year warranty). Have fun!
I just received a notice from NEC which I have summarized/quoted below.
In short, it appears this cable may be the problem and until further testing is done, I can't recommend buying one. I
Update 10/22/2010 - I bought a minidisplayport to displayport adapter Altaz Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort Adapter for Apple MacBook and then hooked it to the regular displayport cable that came with my monitor - it has solved all my problems and now works 100% normally. Until monoprice fixes this cable or offers another one, I would recommend this solution as an alternative.

** Update ** The Accell cable works perfectly. The U3011 is a beautiful monitor at the maximum resolution of 2560x1600. The Accell cable is Model B119B-007J 6.6 ft. Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort.
So why does this cable only get 1 star -- it sounds like it deserves all 5, right? Not so fast, my friends! Two weeks later, my screen would randomly goes black, i.e. no signal, for a brief 2-3 seconds. The frequency of this random signal-drop increases everyday to a point of making the external monitor unusable. This issue doesn't happen if I used the mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter so I know it's not my laptop. I even tried resetting the PRAM and NVRAM of my Macbook to no avail. So I called Dell customer rep to see if it could be a problem with the monitor.
At first, when the Dell rep asked if I had tried a different cable, I almost LOLed at him and didn't believe it was the cable's fault at because you know, being a digital cable, it either works or it doesn't. But since the StarTech cable is also so cheap, I decided to give that cable a try. Guess what? No more random black-outs!
