The Kanex C30 converts your Mini DisplayPort equipped Mac to any monitor or high-resolution display equipped with standard or Dual-link DVI by extending or mirroring your desktop environment. When using larger monitors, such as the 30-inch Apple Cinema Display, the Kanex C30 works flawlessly providing loftier and stunning video to match your display’s native resolution up to 2560x1600 pixels.
The compact-size and lightweight-build eliminates unwanted bulk and cable clutter. Housed in a sturdy aluminum finish, the Kanex C30 performs in style.
Works with 30-inch
Apple Cinema Display
Get faster and higher-quality picture than standard single-link DVI with the Kanex C30. The additional bandwidth supports a stunning 2560x1600 maximum resolution; perfect for those massive 30-inch displays.
A Bigger Display
for your Work Space
Use your 30-inch monitor or multi-display set-up with your Mac where additional desktop space is needed. The more space you have to work with, the easier it becomes to efficiently multi-task.
"Active" Equals Effective
Graphics cards with ATI™ Eyefinity Technology require an active adapter, like the Kanex C30, to create a video wall with up to 6 displays. It’s one awe-inspiring experience.
Powered from Within
Don't bother with cumbersome power supplies that take up space. The Kanex C30 includes a USB connector for power. Simply plug and play, it's that simple.
Single-link DVI is also supported. Connect your Mac to an existing display using standard DVI. The Dual-Link DVI connector on the C30 seamlessly makes the connection and actively converts the video signal.
DVI-D (Dual Link)
Up to 2560X1600 for Dual-Link DVI
Up to 1920x1080 for Single-Link DV
3.25 inches (L) x 2.5 inches (W) x 0.5 inches (H)
What is the difference between Single-Link and Dual-Link?
Dual-Link DVI has double the power of transmission and provides an increase of speed and signal quality over Single-Link DVI.
Will this work with a Single-Link DVI-D connection?
Yes, the Kanex iAdapt C30 will work with a Single-Link DVI-D connection. However, please note that Single-Link connections are only capable of a maximum resolution of 1920x1200.
What is the USB connection for?
The USB connection provides the power for this adapter.
Does this only work with 30-inch displays?
This adapter will work with any size display as long that there's a DVI-D connection.
How long is the cable compared to the adapter from Apple?
The C30 unit is overall 2 Feet and 3 1/4 Inches long. The cables themselves are 2 Feet long and the adapter box itself is 3 1/4 Inches long. Thank you.
Hi, I have a dell 30" inch monitor and an hp envy 17 laptop. Was wondering if this cable would be compatible, in the overview you have only listed apple products? If not, can you recommend any other products that would be able to power the monitor at full resolution (2560x1600). Regards, Sasha
Please be advised that this adapter works with many displays as long as its a Dual Link DVI input. However, this product will only work with a device that has a Mini DisplayPort video out. This adapter will power the full native resolution of 256x1600 as well.
Is the Kanex C30 compatible with Mac OS X Lion (10.7)?
Yes, the Kanex C30 works great on Mac OS X Lion.
Does Kanex C30 support 1920x1080 at 120hz?
No it does not. The maximum refresh rate the Kanex C30 supports is 60Hz.

Work as a beauty! It's the only cable I can use (besides the same cable from Mac of course) to have full res in my MBP Retina and my 30" Dell monitor. The image is amazing. It took a long while to be delivered though. I didn't mind, but if you have deadlines it's somethig to keep in mind.

Used this cable as a replacement for the problematic original mini Apple display port to dual dvi cable to a 27 inch Hazro. I was a bit apprehensive about the price but saw the reviews and bit the bullet. After using it now for a couple months I can honestly say that the noise, black screens and double screens have all gone. Excellent piece of kit! Strange that Apple cannot crack it but Kanex can!!

1. I used this Kanex C30 for Apple Cinema 30" Display with Mac Book Pro 15" i7 Laptop. as new Apple Cinema display don't not offer Matt screen finish for professionals. 2. Liked this product as Apples Original has many poor reviews. 3. Have noticed some Screen Rendering Issues with certain screen sharing apps when changing resolution. like be brought on by sleep make suspension. 4. Just wish it didn't us use my other USB Port for Power, Could have integrated USB hub for convenience.

We are using it to connect a Macbook pro to a 30 inch Apple Cinema Display. It resolved the problem of poor picture quality that we were getting from the Apple connector.

So far this product is exactly as it is supposed to. The only reason I didn't give the highest rating is I want to have more time to see if it wigs out like the Apple version of the product. So far it has not. The Apple dual link adapter would go nuts at very random occurrences. Whether I hooked it up to the computer USB power, whether I hooked it up to a powered hub, whether the computer was hot or whether it was cool. I run VMware with Windows XP and many times I would get a problem when switching into VMware via spaces. So far that has not happened with the Kanex dual link adapter. BTW I am connecting to a Dell 3007WFP with a 27inch iMac Quad I7 unit.
