    Since Costco has the Toshiba 65" 3D 4K display for sale for $3000 right now, I brought my MacBook Pro 17" with the Accell mini-displayport -> HDMI 1.4 active adapter in (which drives my Seiki 4K just fine) to try it out.

    I was trying get the Toshiba to run at 4K, but it would only come up as 1080p. Higher resolutions were not available.
    When I tried setting it to 30Hz (what I use to drive the Seiki 4K), the Toshiba wouldn't sync at all.

    Has anybody tried the Toshiba 4K 3D display?
    Driven it at 4K from a Mac?
    What computer(s) and adapter(s)?

    For those that are interested in pretty movies/pictures of the Sun, I have basically unlimited 4Kx4K content (I work on the SDO/AIA science team).

    It would be pretty easy for me to make 3840x2160 native resolution cutout movies of SDO data...
    Anybody want some?

    It is quite nice looking.
    The color saturation and contrast look great.
    I really would love to be able to play with one for a couple of weeks to put it through its paces.
