    First, when I plugged it into my brand new 2008 Macbook Pro I got a message saying that the USB device drew too much power! I did manage to make it work by plugging it into my monitor's USB hub, but wow...

    Secondly, there is a slight flicker. You can see it clearly with certain kinds of backgrounds and fill patterns. It almost looks like the kind of noise you get with analog, except it's DVI. It's not a severe problem, but *any* flicker with DVI is ridiculous.

    Finally, sometimes it just fails. The screen will go all weird, and you have to reset it. Again, it looks like an analog failure mode except it's not...

    I'm going to wait a bit and then trying exchanging my adaptor at the Apple store. Maybe there are issues with the first-run units.

    Apple really botched this one. Dongles are bad enough, but overpriced broken ones... come on guys...

    I had to plug and unplug my monitor several times before it worked and even now the monitor won't wake up from sleep! Sometimes wh I had to plug and unplug my monitor several times before it worked and even now the monitor won't wake up from sleep! Sometimes when it does come up it flickers and has jaggies. I have to unplug the DVI and plug it back in to get it to stop. I never had any issues at all with this monitor on my old MBP. The size of this thing it HUGE, I can't believe they couldn't make it smaller. Literally about 3x4 inches! Feels like they released a poor product AND they did it LATE!

  • Works perfectly: Mac Mini 2011: 27" Korean reject, and full 1440p

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    If you're reading this review, chances are you've banged your head against the wall trying to figure out how to hook up a computer If you're reading this review, chances are you've banged your head against the wall trying to figure out how to hook up a computer to a 1440p display. I read all the reviews here, and bought the darn thing anyway.

    It works on my 2011 Mac Mini like a charm.

    The only thing I had to do was restart my computer and it worked. The resolution is 2560 x 1440, and adjustable.

    I hooked my mini up to a 27" Korean Thunderbolt knock-off I bought on craigslist.

    Lastly, if you're confused about the length of the cable, and all the ports, just plug the mini-display port into your computer WITH THE USB PORT into your computer. This is required, as high resolution displays draw power from your computer. As to the USB port on the brick itself, that's anyone's guess.

    I originally rated this at 4 stars, but I added the fifth after doing some math. I paid $380 all-together for what is essentially a $999 Thunderbolt display. This thing is gorgeous.

    Hope this helps.

Have the DVI port to HDMI on Purchased 2 of these for a 1st gen Mac Pro with an unsupported ATI Radeon HD 5870. Works flawlessly. Have the DVI port to HDMI on a 32" LCD TV. The 2 mini displayports adapters plug to vid card and then use DVI to HDMI cable to 2 27" hdmi monitors for 3 monitors total. No issues! Just not sure what the extra usb ports next to the dvi ports are for?
