Will I be able to connect the Monoprice 30" IPS CrystalPro Monitor 2560x1600 Display as a second external monitor to my 15" Macbook Pro Retina.
I have a 27" thunderbolt display connected to my 15" macbook Pro. Would I be able to connect a Monoprice 30" IPS CrystalPro Monitor as a second external display and have 2560x1600 resolution using the Dual-link DVI adaptor?

Hi! As someone who just bought one along with a friend... no. Or at least, not easily. I have a 15" Macbook Pro, I have the Apple mini-DP to DVI adaptor, I have the cable that came with the monitor, and it'll only display up to 1900x1200.
Something's afoot here, and maybe this'll end up being solved by using a mini-DP to the monitor's DP input, but... it's not working out of the box as described in the other answers.

Yes this monitor from Monoprice will connect and operate just fine under OSX or Windows using bootcamp with the Dual-link DVI adapter. It's an amazing screen at the lowest price I've seen.

Yes, you can. The Monoprice 30" IPS CrystallPro LCD Monitor will operate fine under both OSX and to Windows through Bootcamp.
