IMac :: Compatibility Between 2 1/2 Year Old Imac 24" And A Apple 30" Cinema Display?

Mar 26, 2010

I have the Imac Alu 24", 2.4 ghz Core 2 Duo with a ATI Radeon HD2600 graphic card with 256MB VRAM. I will be buying a 2 year old apple Cinema display 30" tomorrow from a colleague and would like to know that my IMAC can easily handle supporting this display at its normal resolution and have a crisp and correct image on the larger screen. I know that this older version of the Alu Imac has the older video out display port, but I presume I can convert it to attach to this 2 year old screen as well. Is there something I'll need to do to get this to work?

Mac Pro :: 6 Core Upgrade Or 27" Cinema Display?

Sep 17, 2010

I have a set budget for my 2010 Mac Pro and am having a tough time deciding between upgrading or a display. I have narrowed it down to either upping it to a 6-core Westmere or getting the base 4-core 2.8 Nehalem model and using the upgrade money for a new 27" cinema display. The upgrade to a Westmere is pretty much the same price as the new display. I will mostly be using it for Final Cut and CS5. Is the Westmere going to make a huge difference? If I go for the Westmere I will still have to cobble together enough $ to get an LCD. I also plan to add at least 16GB to it once my finances recover .

Hardware :: Upgrade To A Larger Screen - 30" Cinema Display?

Feb 9, 2010

I very much wish to upgrade to a larger screen. I presently have the Apple 24" display. I am a professor and often need to use 2 or more documents to complete a piece of work, e.g. an exam or grant application.When I see the 30" display, it seems sooooo big, I back off, for I fear it will be overwhelming to use.I imagine a 27" display would be fine, although I much prefer the matte finish. I assume Apple will sometime soon offer a 27".

IMac Display Failing After 1 Year Of Average Use

Jul 1, 2012

I have a mid 2011 27" iMac (the one with thunderbolt) and the display is starting to fail after 1 year of average use (an hour of use every day on average).The display is now much dimmer on the left half of the display (the GPU sits underneath that portion) and also flickers the whole display now and then to a lower brightness.I am about 45 days out of warranty and basically will have to cough up $500 to have it fixed by Apple.Has anyone else ever had this happen to them? The genius bar employee thought that it was something he has seen happen to displays when exposed to heat over long periods of time.So basically playing starcraft 2 and doing video encoding killed my display if you believe that to be the cause.Are there any conditions in which apple would recognize this as a manufacturing defect and fix it free of charge? Otherwise it looks like im writing a check for $500 next week.

Hardware :: 30" Cinema Display - Decide To Get The Old 30" Cinema Display?

Sep 27, 2010

I am actually trying to decide if to get the old 30" cinema display or not.I'm a graphic designer and my fear is that apple will never make a matte display...Here in Italy it's still sold in the apple store. I have the unibody macbook pro, and so I've been reading through reviews now for a week ... my biggest concern is the dual-link dvi adapter... I still see posts (August or September 2010) with people experiencing issues, even with the firmware 1.3!I wanted to ask you people if I should go for it or dig the 27 inch even though it's glossy... I have a few people in the office (also graphic designers) working on iMacs and got used to the glossy.

IMac :: 27" Doesn't Display Full Resolution On Apple Cinema Display?

Dec 24, 2009

The title says it all really... Quite a simple problem that I can't find any answer to!

I've hooked up my 30" Apple Cinema Display to the new iMac 27" and the highest resolution I'm getting as an option is 1280x800... The iMac correctly detects the ACD as a Cinema HD display but limits my resolution. Why oh why?!

Hardware :: 30" Apple Cinema Display - Is That Resolution Available In A Larger Display?

Aug 14, 2009

I own 23 and 30" Cinema Displays. I like the 23 because everything is larger and easier to read than in the 30". I mostly work in Logic and love that I see lots of things on the 30" but the 23" is much easier on my eyes.Is there such a thing as a display with 2560x1600 (like the 30" Apple) but that is LARGER than a 30 inch so I can see everything bigger in Logic??? Maybe a 34 or 37"? Did a search but haven't come up with anything other than other 30" displays.

PowerPC :: Display For G4 12" - Setup Not Compatible For Cinema Display?

Mar 10, 2008

I am looking for a display to use with my Powerbook G4 12". I am in love with the 30" cinema display, but according to technical support today, my setup is not compatible (supposedly, but the person on the phone didn't sound to sure). I have a mini DVI, but the 30" requires a dual DVI. I think the 23" display requires DVI, which I can attain with an adapter. Does anyone have suggestions for what I can use with my computer? The bigger the better for me. Also what do you think of the older (plastic case) apple displays?

Hardware :: 24" Cinema Display And I7 IMac Display - Should They Look The EXACT Same?

Jul 12, 2010

Purchased a brand new 27" i7 imac a few weeks ago, display is awesome!!! I was using my old 28" LCD monitor from my PC and running dual displays on the iMac. The 28" LCD monitor annoyed me a bit because i could not get the same color/crispness/brightness that i got from the iMac. ( also it has a Matt screen and i am more into the glossy screens ) So i found a used 24" cinema display locally. Paid 600.00 and it came with 2 yrs of AppleCare. It is only 7 months old ( still have 5 months under orignal warranty ) Got home, hooked it up and it had a "hint" of yellowness to it, It wasn't a exact image of my iMacs display...I tried to calibrate it also, but it still had just a HINT of yellowness....Nothing at all major, but enough for me to be annoyed with it.

I have a 2008 Mac Pro with ATI Radeon 2600XT and a 30" Cinema Display. I am considering buying a Wacom Contiq 24 HD screen/tablet and would like to know if the Radeon 2600 will drive both or will I need a second graphics card?  If so, do I buy another 2600 or can someone suggest something suitable?

Hardware :: 30" Cinema Display - 24" Cinema Display Or IMac 27"?

Nov 19, 2009

I am thinking of updating my home studio setup which is currently running a Macbook pro 13" 2.26 with 4gb of ram. I was first thinking of upgrading to an iMac with a 3.06Ghz processor and 27" display. However, I now think I might be ok staying with my MacBook and upgrading to one of the two displays;- The 30" Cinema display- Or the 24" Cinema LED displayAt nearly half the price I am leaning towards the 24" display. I am using logic and ableton. What does everyone think and anyone had any experiences running logic and or ableton with a MacBook and display.

IMac :: LED Cinema Display / Turning One Display Of Them Off

Sep 15, 2009

As you can tell by the thread title I've got one of the latest model iMacs and I'm running an LED Cinema Display as a second monitor. When it gets to the late hours I like to watch some movies on the Mac so I figured the Cinema Display would be a nice addition to do the job.

Now here's my issue: if it's late and I'm watching movies I tend to not have any lights on, but having one of the displays on means having both of them on, what I'm wondering is if it's possible to sleep one display while allowing the other to stay active so I can watch the movie without the light from the other one distracting

Hardware :: Cinema Display Vs LED Display?

Dec 17, 2010

Right now i'm using Apple Cinema Display 20" that i bought at the end of 2005. You know, the aluminum one. But i've taken interest in one of those LED Displays, especially the 24"...

Now, i've read that the LED Display uses glossy display compared to the Cinema Display? Also, it's completely my own opinion, but the older Cinema Display seems to be looking more nice also having one-coloured.

The technical specifications are in favour of LED Display of course, but taking into account the glossy display, less attractive design and so on... Which one would you get?

Hardware :: Using LED Cinema Display With PC

Dec 2, 2010

I know there are people in these forums who have an Apple LED Cinema Display hooked up to a PC with a Mini-DP to DVI converter. My question is, how do you guys adjust the brightness of the display? Is it always just left at max brightness? Does the LED Cinema retain the display brightness of the last time it was used... for example, if I hooked up a Macbook Pro to it first, turn the brightness down to halfway, and then hooked up my PC, would the brightness then be at half instead of full?

Mac Pro :: Mac Pro 1,1 And 27" Cinema Display

Dec 21, 2010

Does there exist a video card that has Mini Display out and is compatible with the original Mac Pro? I had a 23" cinema display that was repaired by Apple and then manhandled by UPS (multiple times, actually). Apple is sending me a new 27" LED display. My computer is the original Mac Pro 1,1 with an nVidia 8800gt and as of right now, I have no way of connecting the two. I would like to just upgrade my video card to one with mini display. I have heard that the converters are either unreliable or don't work at all.

MacBook Air :: Cinema Display (30 Or 27)

Dec 25, 2010

I am contemplating an upgrade from my 2.2 / 4G MBP with 128M VRAM, as i find that it often chokes on simpliest HD movie files created with a DSLR (weekish video), regardless whether I use it with or without the 30 inch Cinema display. So, I am curious how the new Air will run an external monitor, and whether it has enough juice to at least display the HD movies shot with a DSLR without dropped frames/jerkiness. (I guess I am asking two questions in one).

Mac Pro :: How To Turn Off Cinema Display?

My Cinema, which I just got this week is connected to my Macbook. So = Is the Cinema off when it will show the white light or when it's dark with no lights at all? I kinda think its when the screen is black without the lighting because of the pulsing light on the macbook, but just wanted to make sure, 'cause I'm a "green"-guy!

Mac Pro :: The Best Webcam For Cinema Display?

Alright, so I've previously made a thread about deciding to get the 2.66 Quad Core Mac Pro. And I'm probably going to purchase one. Just one more thing. What is the best webcam out there that I can use for my 20" Cinema Display? I know that the new Microsoft Webcam can do 720p now, which is really nice, but I was wondering if there was a good webcam that is Mac compatible?

Hardware :: PS3 In HD On Mac & LED Cinema Display

Aug 23, 2009

could I play ps3 in HD with this thing on a Macbook Pro 13", if I buy that switch and a MiniDisplay Port to DVI-D adapter? would it work? and, could I play ps3 also on the Apple LED Cinema Display? That would be pretty cool cause right now I have a display which supports HDMI, but i wanna buy the LED cinema display and plug in my MacBook Pro to it. It just has one minidisplay port connector, so is there the possibility to connect my PS3 to the MBP and then play PS3 in HD (via that switch) on the Led cinema display? i would be really happy if you could answer my question - really!

OS X :: How To Run MacBook Through A Cinema Display

Mar 1, 2010

This is sad I don't know this, but I've only used Macs for a year and have only used a Macbook. This weekend I bought a cinema display to go with it. I plugged in the DVI cable, but was expecting there would also be a cable from the display into the wall socket? The display has four cables coming out of it, the DVI, USB, firewire and another. I clicked the display's power button, but only get a black screen.
