hdmi doesn't have bandwidth to do it. but there is some amd tech that will do something with hdmi and higher resolution, but I can't remember what that was.

but as of right now 1080p is max for hdmi and on the multi input monitors that hdmi is mostly likely there for alternate connections like consoles and what not, but still 1080p

HDMI 1.4 has the bandwidth and supports the resolution. You need a GPU and monitor that support it as well... some of these monitors claim to support HDMI 1.4 and 2560x1440 over it.

I think the Crossover 2730MDP does come with a HDMI1.4 port. Is that correct?

there is no such thing as hdmi 1.4 anymore as they changed the name of it. Simply just hdmi or high speed hdmi. while yes hdmi can support up to 1440p, the card may not push it and only certain cards can do that over hdmi. I want to say you can over hdmi with the crossover because they do advertise that it can, but you would need the correct gpu. If I recall correctly.

The ad I'm thinking of says 2560x1440 over HDMI, so it should work. You may want to ask the seller specifically just in case. You would want to double check about your GPU first as well... if you're trying to do it from a laptop, chances are it won't support it. I know my Lenovo laptop only supports 1920x1200 over HDMI.

I read awhile back the macbooks can do 2560x1440 over HDMI, but OS X can't (or won't)...

Hello I ordered my crossover 27q from

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170875589678&ssPageName=ADME:L:OU:US:3160

I was wondering if I need the power adapter from ebay suggested on the first page or am I okay?

Apologies if this has been addressed in the previous 437 pages:)

My laptop has a NVidia GT540M card with DisplayPort and HDMI ports. The DisplayPort is *supposed* to be able to drive 2560x1440 (right?)

But all of the Korean manufacturer listings on eBay say things like *THIS WILL NOT WORK WITH LAPTOPS*. Even in listings for the the Crossover 2720MDP model I'm looking at, WHICH HAS A DISPLAYPORT PORT.

So are they just being cautious, or what? Why would this monitor magically work with a desktop and not a laptop?

And another question: will DisplayPort alone be able to get the max 2560x1440 from this monitor? The 2720MDP monitor has a DP input...but again, the seller's info says "recommended with dual-link DVI"...it doesn't say explicitly whether, even though it has a DP port, DP will achieve the max 2560x1440 resolution.

Display port should be safe, it's just fairly rare on laptops. The laptop warning is because people will buy HDMI to XYZ adapters and expect them to work, then try to RMA the monitor.

There's shouldn't be any issue, I think. This guy here - http://goo.gl/ikpb7 had a Macbook(Pro I think) and he was able to get 2560x1440 over Display Port on the 2720MDP by using a simple Mini Display Port(MBP) to Display Port(2720MDP) adapter. Also, another user had an iMac and he was able to get 2560x1440 on the 2720MDP over Display Port by using the same http://goo.gl/jvjzv adapter. Hope that helps.
