Macmini Mid 2010 and Apple Cinema HD Display 30" Widescreen
23 March 2012
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.
Summary: I received it today, it took me all of a half our to install the new video card. The computer booted up, I set it up with my daughter's photo as a background, it was an image that I have never seen on a computer. I got so excited that I ordered another one, because the new Nvidia card allows two!
Summary: This monitor works great on Windows XP with an NVidia Quadro FX 4000. If it's in your budget, buy it today. There is no downside to this monitor. I have no reservation in recommending it. It is one of the most expensive monitors on the market but I consider it an exceptional value.
Summary: I've had mine for a few weeks now, and it's a great monitor. It's just amazing to be able to open up 100+ thumbnails on the screen at once, and still be able to see what each one is. Games look fantastic on it , though not all support the native resolution.
Money well spent, even if you don't quite have it.

Summary: I'm a firm proponent that the size (in pixel quantity) of the display you are using is more important that CPU speed. The CTH bus (computer to human bus) in your computer system is the display/keyboard/mouse. For most people this has a bottleneck: the common 21" monitor (or smaller).
Summary: LCD monitors inherently can be manufactured such that they end up with a few dead/bad pixels. This shows up as a colored dot on the monitor when certain colors are displayed. Apple needs to do the right thing and take a stand on quality control.
Summary: I just recently bought this display and what an absolute masterpiece. I was using a Samsung 213T and this was to replace that monitor and become my main screen. The 213T is now a second screen for other tasks. If you can afford this monitor, I highly recommend it.
