    Yup, MonoPrice said this a while back too IIRC. Either way, it's nice to see that SOMEBODY is picking up the port type to make cheaper adapters.

    still doesn't carry audio :(


    Monoprice did suggest this would be available in late Jan before but they had some issues with finding someone to manufacturer the cables for them. I suppose...:rolleyes:


    This is better than getting a miniDP to DVI then a DVI to HDMI cable. :D

    No one can seem to answer whether MDP carries audio or not, but if it doesn't, I would think that MonoPrice's adapter would carry the audio via USB or Toslink.

    Yes, VGA is analogue so its not that very accurate and might be blurrish/ghosting a little.
    The bigger the screen the more noticeable it gets.
