Apple Macbook Pro and HP LP3065 30" monitor

Lucky me is currently using my Macbook Pro with an HP LP3065 30" screen.

With a native resolution of 2560 x 1600 its give massive screen real estate.

To run the screen requires a Dual-Link DVI-D cable. Forunately my Macbook Pro has a DVI port that support Dual-Link, so plug in and off you go.

Don't forget to adjust for the correct height - the bridge of your nose should be level with the top of the screen where it meets the bezel. Instructions are here.

You can run the LP3065 at a lower resolution, but the scaling work has to be doe by the GPU since the LP3065 has no built-in scaler. I guess this means that you cannot connect the LP3065 to a Macbook since Macbook do not have dual-link DVI-D.

So far, I have not found a way to calibrate the LP3065 on OSX using the non-purchased software.
