Korean Monitors with a Chromebox (or a Laptop?)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I want to buy a QNIX like this.

However, I want to use it with my chromebox which seems impossible due to all this jargon about requiring DVI-D and a dedicated graphics card from the cute charts on the eBay listings.

I've heard mentions on the forums of some sort of adapter? Another eBay listing refers to an ad-board? The eBay link above, as one of the images, refers to something that might be the ad-board?

It seems like some of the catleaps have HDMI and DVI and VGA, which looks promising for a laptop or chromebox. However, a catleap like this one (I don't want to buy it, too expensive, just an example) has a line about having a passthrough board (implying only DVI) whereas one of the pictures shows HDMI and VGA.

What's the deal? Will I be able to use a QNIX with my chromebox or laptop?

Thanks so much.

Passthrough will require DVI-D and a dedicated GPU. If it has VGA and HDMI as well as DVI then it will work with your chromebox.

Guess what I learned

The Chromebox has two dedicated DisplayPort++ ports which can be passively/directly DVI-D Dual Link. I bought the monitor. DP++ supports this type of output inherently, so it should work. What do you think?

It won't work. The 1440p versions of the monitors are not compatible with passive DP++ conversions because those are limited to single link dvi only.

I don't know all the details(mainly because i think very little of chromebooks) but the first i hear of someone somehow getting it to work i will let you know. As for right now i have to agree with Kevin, it is just not going to work and if you somehow got it to work it likely would not work well at all(definitely no overclocking). With that being said you might want to go with a Korean version that has a scaler and HDMI port(unless you already purchased).

The active adapters that you would need do not exist. At least, not in any form I've been able to find.

Even if you could MAKE it work the cost, time and potential downgrades in quality would be worth just spending the extra 100 bucks and getting one with an HDMI port.

What about something like this? http://www.amazon.com/Accell-UltraAV-B087B-002B-DisplayPort-Dual-Link/dp/B002ISVI3U/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1371008555&sr=1-3&keywords=displayport+dvi-d+dual+link

It's definitely more economical than finding another monitor with hdmi built-in.

What are the quality drawbacks? Isn't it digital, so either it's there or it isn't?

Thanks,

Technically that should work but i have reservations on how well it might work. Well, give it a try and let us all know thumb.gif
