    Default Macbook Pro External Monitor
    So, I'm in the market for a new external monitor for my Macbook Pro 13 in. What do you guys recommend? I have my eyes on a few and the one that Im leaning towards on is:
    Samsung 23" Ultra Slim LED Monitor VGA HDMI 1920x1080 Fast Response S23C570H 132017757001 | eBay
    Let me know what you recommend by commenting below please!
    My budget is at around $100-200

    Don't forget a Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter.
    Until the next time… And if I help you out, give me a "Thanks!" Thanks!

    I ended getting the Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter since an Apple representative told me to get this one, what is the difference of the two?

    VGA is analog and HDMI is digital. The Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter also outputs audio to a TV with HDMI. If you can, return the VGA adapter and get an HDMI adapter.

    Btw, that monitor looks good. I've had Samsung monitors for years. They all still work. My TV is also Samsung.
    Until the next time… And if I help you out, give me a "Thanks!" Thanks!

    It's hard to say. I've had issues with "no-name" type adapters. I normally use the Startech ones.

    That cable is much cheaper than the adapter and HDMI cable separately. Maybe try it? You won't be out much cash then. I assume it will also carry audio too.

    Mind sending me a link of that Startech product?
