This is for my TV which can output at up to 1920 * 1200. I don't know if using MDP-> HDMI would be any better than using MDP-> VGA (for my MBP). I tried using VGA before, but at full res, text seemed blurry. Haven't tried with HDMI. Would HDMI look at all better? I plan on using this mainly for watching movies in HD and as a monitor when I'm at home.
