faulty product, bad customer service

Hola, Amazon
29 October 2010
  • Summary: Four months ago I purchased a Mac Pro with increased chip capacity and this monitor. The monitor has been flickering occasionally, and this week it started flickering to the point that I couldn't use it at all. Apple will only fix it if I bring it in to an Apple store, but I live hours away from the nearest Apple store. The Apple representative first told me I could ship the monitor to a store and they'd send me a prepaid label for shipping.

Apple Cinema Display 24" Failed 38 days out of warranty

Ron Paulk "crpaulk", Amazon
21 August 2010
  • Summary: I purchased my Apple Cinema 24" LED July 15, 2009. It has been having display problems for 9 months, but I am busy and the work around was to unplug it and when plugged back in it worked. I though I has a software "Sleep" issue and planned to work on the problem when I had time. Well 3 days ago it stopped working completely. Today I finally had time to call Apple. My display was out of warranty by 38 days.

Connection DOES NOT WORK

Tara, Amazon
28 March 2009
  • Summary: IF YOU ARE GOING TO BUY THIS MONITOR. PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU ALSO HAVE THE LATEST VERSION OF THE APPLE COMPUTER (IT WON'T WORK ON OTHER BRAND OF COMPUTERS EITHER.) BECAUSE EVEN IF YOU JUST BOUGHT AN APPLE COMPUTER 6 MONTHS AGO, IT MIGHT NOT WORK WITH THIS MONITOR. I just bought the monitor. I have a Macbook Pro that's less than 1 year old, and I found out that it only works with the LATEST macbook which came out a few months ago.

This display ONLY works with the latest models of MacBook/MacBook Pro

SSD Guy, Amazon
7 January 2009
  • Summary: This seems to be a big mistake from Apple: a cutting edge display that does not connect to the rest of the Apple products other than their **most recent models** of Macbook/Macbook Pro. The display WILL NOT work with any of the following Apple models: * Mac Pro 2.8GHZ Quad-Core Intel Xeon * Mac Pro 3.2GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon * Mac MINI 1.83GHz Intel Core 2 Duo * Mac MINI 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo * 13-inch MacBook with Intel GMA X3100 graphics * Any older models of...

Große Enttäuschung

C. Dammann, Amazon
4 October 2012
  • Summary: Nach einem Jahr Erfahrung muss ich sagen: Apple lässt echt nach, was die Qualität angeht. Der Monitor musste zweimal in die Reparatur, da das Stromkabel nicht ordentlich verarbeitet war. Und nun der nächste Schock: Das Display hat eine handflächengroße Eintrübung, die aussieht, als hätte sich Kondenswasser zwischen Glas und Screen gebildet, oder eine Erhitzung das Glas getrübt hätte. Und das ist innerhalb einer halben Stunde während des normalen Bürobetriebs passiert.

Nicht immer gut

Rote Pfote, Amazon
12 June 2010
  • Summary: Eventuell habe ich nur Pech gehabt, aber ich möchte meine Erfahrung dennoch mitteilen: Der Monitor kam prompt, originalverpackt, alles prima. Die erste Inbetriebnahme völlig problemlos (MacBook Alu late 2008), tolles Bild ohne Kalibrierung, Kabel passen, guter Sound über USB, allerdings tatsächlich erhebliche Spiegelungen. Und dann entdeckte ich leider einen Pixelfehler rechts oben.

ACHTUNG, *nur* für neue MacBooks

Frood, Amazon
18 June 2009
  • Summary: Obwohl Apple darauf hinweist, dass dieser Monitor für neue MacBooks mit Mini-Displayport konzipiert wurde, war mir vor dem Kauf nicht klar, dass er auch *nur* an diese angeschlossen werden kann. Ältere MacBooks (ca. 2 Jahre alt), welche nur einen DVI-Anschluss haben, können nicht angeschlossen werden! Es gibt am Monitor keinen DVI-Anschluss und bisher weder von Apple noch von anderen Herstellern einen Adapter von DVI auf Mini-Displayport.
