    Hi guys,
    recently I was thinking of purchasing a monitor for my MBP and PS3.
    (Probably LG, Samsung, I-O Data)

    And I wanted to know if there is a monitor that doesnt work on the MBP.
    Ive been seeing many posts about monitors not working properly.

    I will be purchasing a monitor with res of 1920x1080 (21~27in) and with HDMI.
    Is there a monitor that doesnt work even if I purchase a thunderbolt to HDMI adapter?

    I dont want to buy a 200~300USD monitor and not work...

    Thanks in advance.

    P.S. I will soon be leaving to Japan for vacation.
    I might be purchasing it over there.

    EDIT: These are the monitors I am looking at.

    You're asking the wrong question...

    Why don't you just choose one of the most popular ones in your price range on Newegg or Amazon, and then ask us if they work.

    They'll work fine as long as you have the TB to HDMI adaptor (Or even mDP to HDMI).

    It just doesn't matter.
    If you can plug them in they work.

    Only with projectors have I ever had problems with Macs.
