I'm seriously thinking of saving up and getting a 22inch Apple Cinema Display! Thing is I know that it won't connect directly to my G4/500 (AGP but pre-gigabit ethernet). Does anyone know what the connector/adaptor would be called..if it is available? <br>Or..perhaps a site where I could locate an older ACD that would connect to my G4 directly? <br><br>thanks<br><br>
hmmmm.... Misha should have the answer to this question... he'll probably post it in the morning... I know that he's gone down the "dvi/adc/vga" route before, with many different monitors and video cards... and that might be an option for you, buy a video card that will support the monitor.<br><br>***<br>"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." <br> -- Ecclesiastes 10:2

No problem that's why I am here, to help :-)<br><br>Did you see that pic of the dual Cinema Displays? I would love to have that setup or just one of these Samsung 240T<br><br>Oni<br><br>this is my signature do you like it?

Gefen also makes an adapter (they were the first) but I believe it's almost $100 more than Dr. Bott's. <br><br>I'm curious to know if there's any loss in quality by going with the longer cables/adapter. <br><br>I just purchased an SGI 1600SW display that uses SGI's proprietary connector and requires the SGI MultiLink adapter to convert the digital signal to DVI... I'll let you guys know what I think of it when I receive the display in a few days.<br><br>For those of you looking at the Cinema, you may want to look at the 1600SW as well... it's 17.3 inches (instead of 22) but the resolution is the same: 1600x1024 (wide screen). If you can tolerate the smaller pixels, you'll save $1000+.<br><br>
