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!

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!
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!
Beautiful, durable and useful. Great for photo work. Colors astounding
21 March 2013
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!).
Summary: My husband has oveted this itm siince its debut but the cost was prohibitive. I bought this for him for Christmas. My geek is very happy. He looked like an 8 yr old kid when i slid the box into the room. He still says it was his best chrsitmas present ever. He had it set up that afternoon.
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.
A must have for serious coders, photo editors, and graphics professionals.

Summary: Fantastic picture quality, low on calibration features. Best backlight of any non LED screen. Apple stopped selling these, which is a shame because I think most professionals preferred this to the glossy smaller 27" display. Price point now that they are only available used, is pretty reasonable.
The Apple 30" Cinema Display is still the best monitor you can buy
1 August 2011
Summary: This is the largest screen Apple ever made. At over five years old it's still the industry leader in screens. I got the screen in order to triple my screen real estate. After a few days of working in indesign, photoshop, and other various programs, I don't know how I got by without it!
Summary: I was able to pick one of these up for $500 used. How could I go wrong? Fantasic display, amazing resolution, great colours, no glare, I absolutely love it. A bit of a pain connecting it to my MBP, even with an adapter (I use Monoprice's Mini Displayport to Dual-Link DVI, not Apple's).
