Get a marvelous visual experience with a 2560x1440 resolution on your Apple LED Cinema 27-inch display– beyond just graphics and multi-media lies the sharper images, vibrant colors and life-like video.

See for Yourself
Stunning view from any angle with the built-in iSight camera from your Apple Cinema Display for video-conferencing or just take pictures using the Photo Booth application.

Have a Blast with your Past Macs
Dust off that old Mac. The C247DL is here to rejuvenate your Mac experience by actively converting the DVI signal into a razor sharp 2560x1600 resolution. Now you can connect your 2006– early 2008 MacBook Pro, 2005–mid and 2007 Mac Mini to the new Apple Cinema Display with Mini DisplayPort input.

Will i be able to use my 27-inch Apple Cinema Display @ 2560x1440
Yes, the C247DL is a Dual-Link DVI solution that has a max resolution output of 2560 x 2048.
What is the differences between the C247d& C247DL?
The C247d is a Single-Link DVI solution with a max resolution of 1920x1200 whereas the C247DL reaches 2560x2048.
Is there any reason why this wouldn't work using a 2010 iMac in Target Display Mode? I have a 2006 MBP I'd dearly love to be able to display on the 27" screen occasionally.
It does work! You can put your 27" iMac into Target display mode using this adapter, however you need a male to male USB cable to take control of the USB functions. This will not work for the iMac equipped with thunderbolt ports.
Will this allow me to connect my 27-inch Apple LED Cinema Display to my G5?
As long as your DVI output is a Dual-Link DVI you will be able to run your 27" Display @ it's native resolution of 2560x1440.
Can I control the brightness of the monitor on a mac using this adapter?
Yes you can using the shortcut keys found on the keyboard.
Will this product work with the thunderbolt display?
This adapter will not work with the Thunderbolt display as the Thunderbolt display requires the connection of another thunderbolt equipped source.
will this cable work with my 2007 mac pro?
Will this work with the Apple 24" LED Cinema Display?
Yes it will.
Will this cable work with the Thinkpad USB3 DVI docking station[0A33970] @native resolution of the 27-inch Cinema Display?
Yes, the C247DL will work with any DVI output into any Mini Display port input.

I think your website does not have the proper contact info for me to talk to someone about the product before purchasing. When the produce showed up there was no documentation to tell me about it's usage or implementation. I had to email your company and wait for a response. When you did respond you did not have the right answer so I had to email you back and ask you to phone me. When you did your representative did not know the answer and had to call me back. He did and it is working now. I doesn't have to be that had does it? I hope i never need anything from your company in the future. Feel free to contact me if you wish to discuss further.

I purchased the C247DL Adapter, I received on 11/20/2012, at the suggestion of Apple to hook up my new Dual Apple LED Cinema 27" Displays to my Early 2009 Mac Pro computer. The Display that I used to hook up the monitor to the Graphic card DVI port with your device would would not work and remained black. Assuming it was the fault of the graphics card, I arranged with Apple to put my computer in for repair. I also gave them your device for evaluation. Apple indicated that the graphics card was OK inferring the fault was your device. Apple said the the only solution would be to replace the graphics card with model ATI Radeon HD 5770 that has 2 Mini Display Ports. This was accomplished and I received my computer back Sunday 12/16/2012. For the above reasons, I am not pleased with your product and would like to return it for credit.

Your product is excellent. Works exactly as advertised in a small, elegant form factor. Your shipping method is also very commendable for us living outside the US. Could be priced a little lower though. Over-all, four out of five stars!

1. I’m using it to connect my PC with the Apple 27“ LED Cinema Display. 2. It’s simply plug& play and worked flawless from the very first moment. 3. Nothing – it’s simply perfect. 4. Probably replace the intense blue light of the device (with a small LED for example).

The product does a great job however I was most impressed with your return process. It was very nice to just be able to send a picture of the defect in the original product we were sent rather than having to ship the entire defective product back. Excellent customer service. Thank you again. Eric

There isn't much to say about this product really. You plug it in to a dual-link DVI port, hook it up to USB then you plug in your 27" Cinema Display and, it just works. You get full resolution, the output is indisguisable from the display plugged into a Mini DisplayPort. The unit itself is well made, unobtrusive. Unlike other similar units, this one gets all the power it needs from the USB socket it is plugged into - no power brick needed, plus it passes the USB through to the display. Everything works, the mic, speakers, camera and USB hub. So it does exactly what it says it will, exactly as you'd hope it would. No surprises, just perfect performance. Under Lion my Mac correctly identifies the 27" Cinema Monitor when plugged in via this adaptor. Is there a downside? Yeah, a tiny one. The unit has a light that tells you it's working, and this is a little brighter than I'd like, so there is a slight eerie blue glow behind my Mac Pro - I could live without that. However, this is such a minor thing, I'd recommend this product for anyone wishing to plug Apple's fancy Cinema display into a Mac with dual-link DVI out. The only thing worth considering is Apple put VERY short cables on their displays and if you're wanting to place your display anywhere other than right next to your Mac you will require an extension cable. Rest assured, this works just perfectly with a 3 metre Mini DisplayPort extension - that is how I have mine setup (get one that includes USB as well). Things don't get easier than this, plug it in and forget it.

I'm using the Kanex C247DL with my trust 2007 MacBook Pro and the Apple 27" LED CInema Display... it works a treat. It is an expensive product, but it has solved a really big problem for me. The cables could be longer - at the moment it sits slightly awkwardly, just stretching either side of my macbook to fit all 3 ports - it would be nice if I could tuck the cables through the back of the screen with the rest. But overall, the product does what it said it would.
