    Exactly the product people have been having ridiculous issues with.

    Don't bother with that adapter, it's trash. I've gone through 6 of them.

    If you by a 30" Display with a Display Port, then get a MDP to DP adapter. I've heard this works great.

    If you had a 17" MBP would you buy a 24" or 30" display (Apple or otherwise)?

    I went through two of the adapters. Been working fine for awhile now. I would suspect you can run the 30 but the laptop needs to be closed. My 15 in can run both a 30 and the laptop, been doing it since day one.

    I suppose - you have to find such a monitor though.
