    Hi Guys,

    I recently ordered a Mini Display adapter (THIS), And it just arrived today.
    Now as you might have noticed this adapter has 3 connectors:
    - Display port
    - DVI
    - HDMI

    Since my monitor is supporting all of them I was just wondering what the difference between these 3 connectors is and which is preferable to use?

    I'll be testing some possibilities since I'm curious if I can connect multiple monitors to it simultaniously (I guess that won't work as it is just a cheap as sollution, but who knows...)

    bought the same adapter :) Cheap and it works!
    Sadly the passive DVI-VGA adapters don't work... oh wonder ;)

    i don't think you can connect multiple Monitors at once... never tried... but if it works you have mirrored picture on all of them.
