I do need a TFT for the Mac mini

Almost everything is fine with the Mac mini – but there is just one thing that really annoys me: the poor VGA Quality. I’ve tried with several Displays – but the results where dissatisfying. On one Belinea 19″ CRT it was even unusable. At the moment I attached the mini to my Belinea 108025 CRT – it works but it is far away from being perfect. On Engadget and in the Apple Support Forum they say it’s the mini´s analog output that is not as good as it should be. Some others think it’s the DVI-VGA Adapter that screws the VGA signal.


So I started to look around for a TFT Display. Because it’s technically senseless to use the Mac mini with any resolution higher than 1280×1024 my choice would be a 17″ TFT. My favourite at the moment is the Samsung SyncMaster 701T. Because it has VGA and DVI and a great cost/performance ratio (600:1, 300 cd/m², 12ms).


What do you think? A Buy or a No-Buy?

  1. also ich hab den Samsung SyncMaster 910T und bin sher zufrieden. Die 12ms solltest du nicht allzu wichtig nehmen soweit ich weiß.
