    Hey, guys,

    I have a 30" HD Cinema Display at work that I can use, but it has no power adapter/AC plug–just the DC plug with USB/FireWire cables. Looking on eBay, the A1098 150W adapters are going for a crazy $150-200.

    It's a great display, so I'd like to make use of it, but is it worth purchasing a new adapter? What's my best option?

    Thanks!

    If you're comfortable with stripping wires:

    About 2:25 in.

    Personally I'd just sell the monitor and buy something newer, but if it's company property you probably don't have a choice.

    I lucked out recently and got a 27" Cinema Display for $200, but I'd never spend more than that for an Apple display.
