    Don't use mini-DP

    There is a known issue with Mini-displayport > Displayport connections to the U2410. The monitor gets recognized as a TV so the native resolution can never be achieved and the picture looks like garbage. There is a thread somewhere on here chronicling the issue.

    Your best bet is to go minidp to DVI

    I wasn't aware of these issues, but since its native res is 1920x1200, you can use a standard single-link DVI connection, which is pretty cheap.

    Heard of some bugs with MDP>DP. Been using MDP>DVI with no issues for over a year on my mid-2010 MBP.
