Hi, I am looking for a good (and affordable) external display (min. 23") for my 2011 MBA 13" and would love to have some input and suggestions as to what has worked well for anybody here. Obviously, the 27" Apple Cinema Display is a nice option but way outside my budget (and too large a screen for my desk). I was also considering the old 24" Apple Cinema Display but I understand there have been problems using that monitor via the Thunderbolt port. I do have an old 19" HP monitor and just for fun I tried that using the Apple MDP to DVI connector and nothing shows up on the external screen. The laptop works fine, however, with a MDP to HDMI cable hooked up to my Sony Bravia in the living room so the Thunderbolt port is working. Would a much older 23" DVI-based Apple Cinema display work well or should I look for a brand new 23" external display made by Samsung or others? Any advice and personal experience in this area would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
