Get a modern monitor

Dominique, Amazon
2 April 2015
  • Summary: Of the two I've owned, both leave image burns constantly. It's just not a good monitor for doing any kind of professional image or video-based work. It also requires a $100 cord to hook it up to any modern computer, the 3rd-party versions of the cord don't always work or perform well.

very big, but just doesn't have the reliability it should

Neurasthenic "neurasthenic", Amazon
30 April 2014
  • Summary: The power supply died after three years and, after about four years the screen started to delaminate, leading to a discoloration creeping from the lower-left hand corner of the screen. For the price I expected something more robust.

It's great until its not.

Nathaniel J. "famousexplorer", Amazon
6 April 2014
  • Summary: I bought mine used on Craigslist from a photographer in New York for $350 — it was amazing for about a year and a half, but then it started burning images really quickly, so there's always lines all over my computer.

Really has held up over the years.

California Joe, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had my 30" apple cinema display for 3 years now, and I got it used from a design company that was selling it "because it had too much screen real estate and I kept having to crane my neck to see the edges of the screen!" Not a problem for me though!

Versatile cost effective a great way to increase productivity!

bastilledog, Ebay
8 April 2013
  • Summary: No question about it increased work space increases productivity. I purchased this second 30" Cinema Display to meet the demands of a major project where the additional display will provide 2 times the work space. I don't know why I didn't do it sooner and am now contemplating a 3rd display.

A Huge monitor with a large amount of pixels to gaze at. It's worth it!

sonicbounty50, Ebay
1 April 2013
  • Summary: While I wouldn't buy one of these new from Amazon. I would definitely recommend buying one used. This monitor is a great way to get a very high resolution with brilliant color. The only downside I could find is that there is no HDCP support. Other than that, an excellent monitor!

  • Summary: A few years ago I could never have afforded to have one of these on my desk. I had the opportunity to buy one used on eBay and was astounded at how beautiful and clear this display is compared to any others (and its 7 years old!).

On the way to out

Dr. S., Amazon
15 September 2012
  • Summary: These monitors were beautiful when they were new. If you can find a new one in a box it may be OK but the used ones can have LCD problems like the one I got. In my case the seller would not take the return and Apple is the only place that will fix them.

  • Summary: i am so happy with this screen. I was able to connect it to my MacMini Intel Core 2 Duo (model of Mid 2010) running OSX Lion. Macmini has two video outs (HDMI and Mini DisplayPort) and I am using both at the same time for two screens.
