4 out of 5 eggsKanex XD

Pros: Easy to use, compliments the design of the iMac, turns my iMac into a multitasking entertainment center.

Cons: Can get very hot (the aluminum should draw heat away from the inside, but it still puts out a lot of heat), sometimes it will not recognize the HDMI signal but you just need to reconnect the HDMI cable, and it is pricey.

Other Thoughts: I wish apple would have included a HDMI port since the display on the 27inch is almost top of the line. It downscales the resolution to 720 and I wish also wish apple would allow downscaling to 1080 (720 is half of 1440, the current resolution, which makes it easy to do, 1080 would require more processing power). Other then a few minor details, I really enjoy watching HD cable and playing xbox360 in my room.
