I have sporadic issues with nothing being displayed on boot on the Cinema Display. Sometimes it just works a few days later. Some days with being diconnected from power, others with a MBP plugged in to receive power from the Cinema Display and it wil work again. Sometims just works wihtout doing anything.
I upgraded the logic board and PSU when I first had issues (both were tested by a PC tech and no issue found). Has a relatively new ~$500 GPU (there were no issues with the DVI port and previous monitor). Will plug into the TV via HDMI to see if that produces a signal
The SSD has issues (windows prompts for repair and fails, I had suspicisons for some time), and last time I had a video signal a display, the audio stopped working (I was able to get the right channel to work again).
Not sure if replacing the SSD will improve this, so consdering a new monitor (can repurpose the Cinema Display).
Why am I posting??
I am hoping for recommendations on a new monitor — after using the Cinema Display, I do not want to go back to poor colour quality.
- Under $500.
- 27" would be nice, though can work qith 24 just fine.
- Not interested in curved (unless someone very highly recommends one).
UPDATE: plugged into TV and received a signal. Either GPU DisplayPort, the DisplayPort to Mini DisplayPort adapter have issues it would seem.
