CROSSOVER 27Q LED 27" S-IPS Panel High --> Compatible with windows or laptops or mac book pro retina?

I am considering purchasing:

New CROSSOVER 27Q LED 27" S-IPS Panel High QHD 2560x1440 DVI-D Computer Monitor

from:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-CROSSOVER-27Q-LED-27-S-IPS-Panel-High-QHD-2560x1440-DVI-D-Computer-Monitor-/120888845804?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item1c258965ec

Is this monitor compatible with windows laptops, mac book pro retina...or are they just compatible with desktop video cards?

Thanks

They are only compatible with desktop vid cards with dual link dvi-d even if you were to get an adapter like dvi to hdmi they won't work.....

Thanks for the response. I friend of mine has dual CROSSOVER 27Q and says they are awesome. Of course he interfaces them from a desktop.

What would you recommend something similar for macbook pro retina? The CROSSOVER is a such a great monitor and I really don't want to pay 1k for a 27" apple display.

Any information is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

well unfortunately all the QHD cheap korean monitors will only work on desktop video cards some people say you can buy an active dvi to display port adapter and that would work but that adapter is usually pretty pricey like 50-80 bucks, but i've never seen them work.... Other then that some of the "cheaper" QHD screens are like the Asus PB278Q or Dell U2713HM that would work with a laptop but they start at like $600+

I ended up getting the Crossovers to work with my (early 2013) MBPr. Two Active Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapters brought them to life. smile.gif
