Maximum resolution Possible
on December 7, 2010
I tried many adapters to achieve the best resolution that my new Dell 30-inch monitor offered. Took many days and this was the ONLY adapter that worked.
While I was able to get the normal and very good resolution of HDMI adapter/cords (1900) and okay but higher resolution with VGA (2048 x 1280), this ten buck cord did the trick. It caused a great deal of flickering of the screen until I enabled MIRRORING and made sure that Overscan was off. At first the cord and the monitor and my laptop were, shall we say, in negotiations on what resolution would be provided. Staying in the system preferences, display boxes, clicking and un-clicking mirroring, I was able to get the maximum resolution of the monitor which is 2540 x1600. I tried the Apple Minidisplay port to dual-link display port adapter and that was a waste of time and it will be returned shortly. The resolution it gave was around 1600x but it looked horrible, made the monitor appear as one of the original and huge CRT monitors from the 80s. I highly recommend this cord, nice gold plated connections and I will likely buy another.
