    I purchased one of these (expensive) adaptors for use with a new MacBook.

Unfortunately there is serious interference on black parts of the screen. Many other users have encountered this, so I don't believe my experience is uncommon.

It is regrettab Beware of buying this accessory, if you have a non-Apple 30" display then it will almost certainly cause problems. It is regrettable that Apple should put its loyal customers in this position. A 30" monitor is a significant investment, and it may not be viable for people to replace their perfectly good displays with the Apple display so that they can receive reliable performance. My hope is that this is merely a software issue that can hopefully be corrected via a software update.

    very poor show from Apple to release a faulty product.

  • Frequent problems with display interference

    I use a 30in ACD with 2013 MacBook Pro* and in use, the image quality of the Cinema Display degrades during use (normally after a couple of hours) and the only remedy is to unplug the display adapter from the Mac and re-insert.

    Sometimes it takes a couple of attempts.

    The problem still occurs (although less frequently) when the MacBook is connected to mains power.

    *Apple have a very different meaning to the word "Professional" than I do - I need my equipment to work properly and reliably throughout an entire working day.

    I was using a cheap DVI dual link cable that I had bought 6 years ago. So I bought a startech branded DVI dual link cable (£8) and now I have no issues at all, working perfectly. My monitor is a Hazro HZ27WC, with a late 2013 Macbook Pro 15".

    By the way, the same old cable I had works fine when connected to my PC with the same monitor, but doesn't work with the Apple adapter. My guess is that Apple's adapter has different and stricter time constraints on the digital signals perhaps and therefore requires a decent quality cable.

    So my advice is, don't listen to the people complaining about the adapter. Just try is with a decent quality DVI cable for yourself. When I say decent quality DVI cable, I don't mean spending £50 on one, you should be able to get one for under £15 online.

Works flawlessly so far Have this plugged into my Late 2011 Macbook Pro, Hazro HZ27WD 27" 2560x1440 monitor and a powered USB hub. Works flawlessly so far and I didn't have to configure anything. Shame these kind of adapters are so expensive :(
