I haven't used any of those retailers, but I did research Royal Discount in the past and there stuff was legit. As a rule of the thumb when a company has thousands of reviews and the negative reviews don't sound too terrible I would feel comfortable with a couple of hundred dollars.

    does anyone know where to buy the LP8 FULL VERSION not the academic version?
    I heard there's only 50$ difference on the price, so i will probably go for the full version.
    i think apple store only sells the academic version.

    is this one the full version?

  • Mac mini & Studio Display

    I've just gotten a Mac Mini and I'm hoping to use it with my 15" Studio Display, Family Number M2454. The monitor is circa 1999-2000. The plug looks perfect for the slot on the Mac mini, but the way it secures itself is different, and thus won't fit. The adapter enclosed with the Mac mini is of no help. Does anyone have a clue what adaptor I should use and where to get one?
    Thanks.

    Unfortunately, your Studio Display has an ADC type connector. If you look at it you'll see that rather than 'D" shaped like a VGA connector, or Rectangular like a DVI connector, the ADC connector has rounded ends. Thus it won't plug into the mini's DVI port, or the VGA connector on the adapter.
    You'll need a device such as the DVI-to-ADC adapter at http://www.apple.com/lae/displays/adapter/ http://www.smalldog.com/product/12651652 or http://www.drbott.com/prod/db.lasso?code=0111-DVAD
    As you'll see, there are around $100 so not inexpensive. At that cost, it's almost worth buying a new 17" LCD for what is often little more.
    The option to connect it to the VGA adaptor with a suitable VGA-to-ADC adaptor also exists (such as http://www.gefen.com/kvm/product.jsp?prod_id=1301) but seems rather more expensive.

  • My 11 year old Apple studio display died. what is best connection with new monitor

    The lCD light finally quit after 12 years. So I bought a very cheap acer /led widescreenS200HQL 19 inch as a cheap quick replacement for my monitor on my  quicksilver G4 933. Question is it is connected to the second display port VGA... Is it worth buying a connector so it can be connected to the larger DVI port(where the apple studio display was connected?) will that make any difference??? Things seem fine but was curious as to the difference???

    Many of the Studio displays were ADC. Are you sure that other port is really DVI and not ADC?
    My 2004 MDD vid card has one DVI and one ADC connector. I have it connected to a Viewsonic display from about 2007 with both VGA and DVI ports. When I connect the DVI port directly to the DVI port on the G4, the native res looks good but it too small to read (old, tired eyes). If I change the desktop res to make things a little bigger, the image looks like carp--fuzzy and possibly some distortion.
    If I use the DVI-to-VGA adapter on the computer and connect it to the monitor. the image is shape and proper at any support desktop res I select.
    You mileage may vary.

  • Mac Mini and 17" Studio Display CRT (ADC)

    Is there someone who can tell me if there is a DVI to ADC Adapter to get a Mac Mini to work with the beautiful 17" Studio Display CRT (ADC). Which is an anolog monitor, the adapters i can find work only on LCD (digital) screens.
    Please let me know...
    Ger

    Do NOT buy the Apple DVI to ADC adapter, it does not work with CRT displays.
    The 'geniuses' at the Apple store recommended that I buy this adapter. It didn't work. I have since found out (after extensively surfing the web) that I am not the only one who has been recommended to buy this adapter by an Apple 'genius'. However, It is simply not designed to work with the CRT's, it is LCD only.
    There is no way to make the ADC 17" CRT studio display work with new non ADC Apple hardware. Apple have simply dismissed it, much to the annoyance of all the customers who had purchased this perfectly respectable display.
    If you want to use your Mac Mini you will need to use either a non-Apple display or one of their new displays. Your perfectly functioning CRT is now a doorstop.

  • DVI to ADC Adapter a 12" Powerbook and an Apple Studio Display 15"

    hello,
    i am trying to hook up a 12" powerbook with a DVI to ADC adapter to an Apple Studio Display 15".
    i´m just about to buy a used 15" display on ebay.
    i was wondering if this is working out together. in the apple store there are two DVI to ADC adapters at different prices and displays supported?
    so if anybody could help me out please let me know!!!!
    thank you very much
    regards, g.

    Hi
    unfortunately I think the Apple store have sold you the wrong item.
    I'm almost certain the DVI to ADC adapter only works with ADC based flat panel displays. DVI ports can output digital or analogue signals (or a combination of the two). The adapter seems to provide digital, which is why it works with the LCD displays, but not analogue, which is why it doesn't work with the CRT displays.
    Confusingly Apple did a 17" Studio display both as a CRT and LCD.
    Dr. Bott do a similar adapter but they explicitly state it's not compatible with the 17" CRT.
    Unfortunately I'm not sure there's a solution, as the display has an ADC connector yet I'm not aware of any adapters available that will work.

  • Brand new mac mini and Studio Display 17" LCD- 2 adapters needed- problems?

    From many forum posts here and elsewhere it seems I can in fact hook up my Studio Display 17" LCD monitor if I used the ADC-DVI adapter. But has anyone used the ADC-DVI adapter AND the DVI-mini DVI adapter that came in the box with the Mac mini?
    Apple tech support told me on the phone tonight that doing so would "fry" the Studio Display.
    Has anyone had any problems using this? Will running it through 2 adapters cause problems as opposed to the older minis where you could just do ADC-DVI and then into the computer?

    Were you able to get your display working? I have an LG 27" at home connected to a Mid 2012 (June) MacBook Air 13" that has absolutely no issues. However, I just obtained the same Samsung monitor you have and appear to be having the same issue.
    The only solution that I have found is to unplug the power from the back of the monitor or at the power supply each time my computer either wakes from sleep, screensaver, or a display that is powered off. This seems to be true via the following connections:
    1. HDMI to DVI thunderbolt adapter
    2. HDMI to Thunderbolt adapter
    The display powers on with a slight flicker and then will immediately stop displaying the image on screen. What's especially strange here is the MacBook Air still believes the display is connected -- my login screen or active apps that are displayed on the external monitor do not move to the MacBook Air display as if it's no longer connected.
    I hope someone has a solution to this issue! Thanks!

  • Boot Camp - Windows 7 (64 bit) - Apple Studio Display - Driver

    Used Bootcamp to add Windows 7 to my Mac Pro running 10.6.4
    Works great but the Apple Studio Display becomes too dim on start-up of Windows 7 & I cannot control the brightness by using the Display's control.
    As well, there is no software control.
    Any idea where I can obtain a Driver for this Display for the 64 bit version of Windows 7?
    Many thanks!
    ...John

    From what I've found, it comes from some driver introduced in the boot camp update 2.1.
    Some workarounds:
    - install winACD, but it doesn't work on 64 bits systems, so no luck for us
    - boot in OSX, set the brightness as you want, disconnect the USB from the ADC adapter, then boot in windows. But you lose the USB ports of the display, you have to reconnect it when you use OSX if you want to enjoy your display, and you have to reboot 2 times if you want to change the brightness in windows...
    Some person said that it was caused by "KbdMgr.exe", but I couldn't find it.
    A real solution, like a boot camp driver update would be great...

  • New Mac Pro Won't Work With Old Studio Display

    Hi,
    Just got a new Mac Pro Desktop 8-core only to find out my old Apple Studio Display 17" won't work without a $100 adapter. We're thinking of just buying a new monitor instead. My question is will other brands now work direclty with the new Macs - or would they also need adapters? Is a DVI port the same as a DVI-D port?
    Thanks for any info...

    Thanks so much for the response, Malcolm, I really appreciate it! My old monitor is an LCD, but what we decided to do is since the adapter we found (and HAD to get from Apple directly) was going to cost $99!! We went and bought a brand new Dell monitor instead for $238 - it's fully compatible with the new Mac, and it's 23" (my old one was a 17") - so all's good!
    Thanks again,
    Jacki

  • 17" Studio Display flickers on & off, then died

    My Apple Studio Display is about four years old now.
    Yesterday, it started flickering on and off for a while, then it completely died.
    I let it set overnight, and proceeded to make "funeral arrangements" for the beast that I had so lovingly cared for...
    I even took the Studio Display to my daughters home and connected it to hers since its the same computer.. and it started flickering again, on and off, etc...
    Late this afternoon I went to pay my respects to my Studio Display whom I had been cussing out all morning, when it "came alive"....yes....."alive"....
    And, as I write this, I feel like a much loved member of my family has risen from the dead and as if nothing had ever happened to it...nothing...nothing..
    In my insignificant opinion, this "Studio Display" is about the best looking monitor I've ever seen from Apple. But, I will not be "fooled" again...
    Now that this f%#@&'in display is working, I've done some important research as to what other monitor I'll be buying when this piece of crap really dies on me!...
    I recall that I paid $1,000 for it originally. I've checked out some highly rated monitors, and when this present miscreant passes away, I most surely will not spend a cent to have it repaired, but go to the nearest Compusa or Staples, or whatever and pick up a non-Apple monitor, and hope for the best....
    In the meantime, perhaps someone here could possibly explain to me why this piece of **** should die and then "revive" on me?...
    But, I'm so "******" that I've actually prepared myself for its ultimate and rapid demise, that perhaps, just perhaps, I'll be glad when it happens!...

    Hi Bob, I suspect it's the Backlight or the little Inverter assembly.
    When it's dark shine a flashlight in it and see if you see a dim Desktop.

  • Display Problem - Video noise with 15" Powerbook and 23" Studio Display

    I just bought a used 23" Studio Display to act as a second monitor for my 1.0 GHz 15" Powerbook. In my set up, the display is rather noisy -- there are consistant flickering lines of white pixels throughout the display. The lines are worst in dark areas, though they may just be showing up under contrast. The Powerbook it is connected to still looks normal.
    The first strange thing is that the display works perfectly with another 1.25 GHz 15" Powerbook I have to test it on. In both cases, I have connected the monitor to the Powerbooks with a new Apple brand powered DVI to ADV Adapter.
    The second strange thing is that the display seemed to act fine until I reinstalled my Wacom tablet driver so that it would work with dual displays. I've uninstalled the driver, but it the problem is still there.
    The third strange thing is that the display is fine while booting up. The blue boot up screen is very crisp looking and noiseless. It only starts showing noise when the login screen shows up.
    Any thoughts about what may be causing the problem or how to fix it would be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Powerbook 15" G5 dual 2.0   Mac OS X (10.4.7)   23" studio display

    Well I called AppleCare yesterday and, believe it or not, we actually got the USB ports acting normally - well at least I can boot up with the keyboard plugged into the back of the monitor.
    They had me reset the Open Firmware and that seemed to do the trick. Of course, the night before I updated to 10.4.10 so that may have had something to do with it, too. No idea.
    As for the power sensor button thing, they wanted me to plug the monitor into a different system, either at a Genius Bar or a friend or whatnot to see if it would behave in the same manner - not wanting to activate. I took it to school with me and hooked it up to one of my teacher's G5 and it behaved the same way. It took like 15 times touching the sensor to bring the system up.
    So I'll be calling them back and see where they want to go with this. Maybe I'll get lucky and get a new shiny monitor - or not...

    Powerbook 15" G5 dual 2.0   Mac OS X (10.4.7)   23" studio display

    It's plug and play, so that's not an issue.
    The debate about running the clamshell closed is so that, if the extra desktop space is not required, there is no point "stressing" the video ram and videocard and cpu by having the other display running - all resources can turn to the external display.
    As for extending the desktop, yes you can do that with Photoshop - you have the space of the PB and the new display, entirely up to you what you put where - just drag across.
    Performance wise, I don't imagine that Photoshop would cause as many difficulties as say video editing might, and I've not come across anyone saying that they have had performance issues from running the extra display - you may get some extra heat as the processor is taxed though.
    If in doubt, you could test at an Apple Store or reseller.
    Also, you might find getting extra ram a useful upgrade.
    Hope that helps, best of luck.

  • Dual Studio displays and midi timepiece setup

    I have a G5 dual 2.7 GHz - with a 22" studio display and am trying to setup a 17"studio display as a second monitor. I bought a DVI to ADC Adapter for the 17". But when i went to plug the USB cable in, found out that I don't have enough usb ports. There are 2 on the back and one is being used by my 22" display and the other by a midi timepiece. This is a pretty elementary question but could i just buy a USB Hub that would give me additional USB outlets? Any other suggestions?

    Hi
    The original AGP Graphics/Sawtooth G4 doesn't support graphics cards with an ADC connector, as the logic board lacks the extra power 'slot' just above the standard AGP slot, which provides power to the ADC connector and display. I expect that's why the stock graphics card you currently have doesn't have an ADC connector to begin with.
    Similarly you can't really convert a VGA port, which is analogue, into digital DVI or ADC, which is needed for the Apple Studio displays. Adapters do exist, but they can cost $400 as they have to convert an analogue video signal to digital. You'd also lose some quality due to the analogue to digital conversion.
    The options are:
    Buy a replacement AGP graphics card with two DVI connectors, along with two DVI to ADC adapters. I don't think a Mac compatible card with two DVI ports (that would work in your G4 with x2 AGP) exists though.
    Buy a second Mac compatible (PCI) graphics card with a DVI connector, along with two DVI to ADC adapters. The Radeon 7000 (now discontinued) or Radeon 9200 (still available) would be possible options. More info can be found here:
    http://ati.de/products/radeon7000/radeon7000me/index.html
    http://ati.de/products/radeon9200/radeon9200me/specs.html
    Unfortunately neither option is cheap though, as in both cases you need two DVI to ADC adapters.
