    Just got the email from MonoPrice that their MiniDP -> DVI and MiniDP -> HDMI cables are available (still no mdp->VGA). I was going to get one, but I am getting a monitor with full size Display port so I just got their MiniDP->DP cable instead.

    Thought this might interest anyone needing direct to DVI or HDMI.

    If I decide to get one I'll post up with details. seems interesting that they don't have a picture yet, but it is only $15 so I imagine it isnt something with a big bulky adapter.

    So I can use this to connect my MBP to my LCD? I bought an adapter from Best Buy yesterday and was extremely frustrated that it didn't fit. :(

    I cannot verify first-hand (although I'm tempted to buy one just for the heck of it), but I've never been let down by monoprice before so I'd assume so.

    I'm not sure what the max resolution supported is. Online it says it supports full 1080P, but I'm not sure about any more than that. Obviously the HDMI wont do more, but DVI is surely capable of more than that.

    I wonder if this supports video in so I can use it to connect my 27in iMac to my Mac Pro. All the other ones only support video out.

    Good question. I'd like to know the answer as well. Let us know if you try it out. It'd be great to be able to plug in any DVI or HDMI source to the 27" iMac OR a 24" LED ACD for that matter.

    I'd also like to know if this supports dual-link DVI. I don't have a 30" ACD, but I wonder if it would support the full 2560x1600 resolution?
