The Kanex HDMI to Mini DisplayPort Converter basically does as it says – it allows users to hook up virtually any HDMI source device into a 27″ iMac, an LED Cinema Display or virtually any other Apple device which sports an mDP input (which includes sources like a PS3, Xbox 360 or Blu-ray player). HDMI 1.3 and DisplayPort/Mini DisplayPort 1.1a are supported, although certain limits do apply, depending on the source of your choice. It has a maximum resolution of 1,920 x 1,200 for standard DVI, while consoles are purportedly limited to sending native 720p. Expect the Kanex adapter to ship this April for $150, where it will be accompanied by the adapter itself and a 3-foot mDP cable.
