too expensive, but undeniably good

Waffle Lover, Amazon
22 April 2005
  • Summary: I got one of these and you get what you pay for with this screen. The problem is you pay a lot. Its a very nice screen. Nothing more I can say. Never seen a nicer LCD anywhere. Only reason I dind't give it 5 stars is the price (which is astronomical). I use it to watch movies, do work, everything. I don't even have a TV. By the way if anyone knows if a DVD player that I can hook right up to the DVI input of this I would love to find one.

"A Must LCD Monitor For Gamers"

CNET
6 December 2004
  • Pros: Ive been researching LCD's now for over a year, looking into which LCD would provide me with the best gaming experience. I ended up with the Apple 23" and I must say it is perfect. Ive run Half Life 2, Doom 3, UT2004, Call Of Duty, Medal Of Honor Pacific
  • Cons: -Its pricey, $2000 -You can only get brightness to work on a PC. All other features you cant use. -USB ports on back of LCD also dont work on a PC

"Incredible LCD!!!"

CNET
29 September 2004
  • Pros: The image is incredible and watching DVDS on this monitor is just plain AWESOME!!! Crisp, clear, and extremely bright is the best way to describe this monitor. Anyone that gave this monitor a thumbs down or negative review simply does not own one and h
  • Cons: Hooked this monitor upto my DELL IXPS laptop with a ATI 9800 Mobility 256MB graphics card (brand new) and the boot sequence is NOT displayed, but since I am connecting this to a laptop, it is not a problem and display comes up at the XP PRO login...

"Works almost flawless on my pc"

CNET
27 September 2004
  • Pros: Superb image quality, one cable, extra hub in monitor, easy to adjust
  • Cons: can't see "text" from the video card (ATI 9600 pro with DVI port) when booting - monitor is blank until i get the windows logon screen. hassle if you need to debug or boot windows in non-standard way. some other video cards don't have this problem

"Blows away the others"

CNET
23 September 2004
  • Pros: Check it out side-by-side next to the others: big names included, like Samsung, NEC, HP, BenQ, etc. You look at the Apple and it's in a whole different league of crispness and brightness. Specs be damned, the others aren't even on the same planet.
  • Cons: You gotta pay full price for this baby. However, it's no more expensive than the less-capable Sony 23", and actually hundreds less than Viewsonic.

"This is the best display yet."

CNET
15 September 2004
  • Pros: Bright screen, all around excellent view, extremely good for working with graphics. Personally I believe this is one of the best displays on the markey today. I had one for about 2 months now and I don't have any complaints.
  • Cons: Well, price. But once you get it you'll forget about that until the next bill arrives.

"A few flaws, but a brilliant widescreen LCD..."

CNET
1 September 2004
  • Pros: Extremely bright at its highest setting, despite it having a lower spec than many 20"+ LCDs; aluminum casing and flawless design; HD widescreen panel; great viewing angle; integrated USB 2.0 and FireWire ports; pure DVI connection; lower dot pitch greatly
  • Cons: Some uneven backlighting, most obvious on all-black backgrounds; color saturation problems anywhere from 1" to 3" in from the left and right bezels (an issue currently being widely discussed on the Apple support forums); no height adjustment; picture adju
