2010 Macbook Pro to output to a 2K monitor?


#1

Hi, I was wondering if you have an adapter that can help me use my Mid-2010 Macbook Pro 15 inch (standard specs) with a 2K monitor (2560x1440)? Prefer to use HDMI. All other adapters I have purchased max out at HD resolution.

Hi Karan, thanks for posting. We don’t have a mid 2010 MBP in our labs to test with and without knowing the specific monitor model, our MDP-HDMI (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00S0BWR2K) adapter should be able to support the desired 2K resolution and inn looking at the specifications of your MacBook Pro here --> https://support.apple.com/kb/sp582?lo… the system should be able to support it as well.

If you decide to proceed with a purchase, we offer a 30-day no hassle return policy via Amazon.com/returns if you find that our adapter does not meet your needs.

Thank you,

Hi David, thank you very much for looking into this for me. The monitor is a Samsung S32D850T. Your return policy makes me more confident in moving forward with my purchase, so thank you again for your quick and resourceful response.

Best,
Karan

Thanks for the reply, Karan, and you a welcome.

I took a quick look at the Samsung monitor’s manual, as well, as some 2560x1440 displays require a Dual-Link DVI connection to achieve this resolution, while an available HDMI port on the monitor may only offer 1080p resolutions. However, it does appear that the HDMI port on this specific monitor should also support the 2560x1440 optimal resolution when using our adapter and HDMI cable.

Thank you,
