Hi folks,

Just got my 2 x Samsung monitors and I have 1 using the DVI connection and the other plugged into the Mini Displayport using an Apple Mini Displayport to DVI adapter. The second monitor won't go over 1080p.

 

So, googling a bit throws up the Apple Dual Link adapter for $100. Is this the only solution to enable higher res from the minidisplay port? It has some pretty awful feedback.

 

What about a Mini Displayport to HDMI? Would that support the higher res? Or are there any alternatives to the Apple active converter?

 

Thanks!
