over priced, under featured

Amazon Customer "sieler", Amazon
10 January 2012
  • Summary: The 24" Apple LED Cinema Display (mb382ll/a) seems to be over-priced and under-featured. The display lacks needed controls (e.g., brightness), relying on the user having a computer that knows the secret of controlling the display. And, no, not even all Macs know how to do it. The display is glossy, with lots of glare. The display stand is only minimally adjustable, unable to move up, move down, or swivel ... a small amount of tilt is all you get.

"Not twice as stunning as a Samsung!"

  • Pros: The best 24" monitor in every way (style, image, quality) except lack of height adjustment and no anti-reflective option.
  • Cons: Exploititativel-priced. Because we spent over-the-odds for our prized MacBook Pro, Apple knows it can part us from our cash by offering us the most gorgeous monitor on the planet to match it.

Poor quality

Interested Reader "Interested Reader", Amazon
23 May 2009
  • Summary: It's a really sexy screen with very crisp image but the manufacturing quality is horrible. The screen constantly flickers and changes colors and changes shades. Can't get any help since I didn't have time to deal with this in the first 30 days.

But WHAT does one do if you don't have a minidisplay port?

Bill M., Amazon
26 April 2009
  • Summary: I got one of these and had to return it because I didn't catch the part about the minidisplay port - my fault. For all of you saying it's unreasonable for anyone to even complain about the minidisplay issue - chew on this. If you have a mac pro that is say, 1 year old, you can't even buy a new 24" inch apple display that is compatible with your computer now.

WARNING! NOT COMPATIBLE WITH 98% of all computers

R. Walters "Mac Daddy", Amazon
10 April 2009
  • Summary: While is is a pretty monitor it is unusable with all but the most recent MacBooks. It will connect to a MacPro But I do not recommend it as the cable is very short. The glossy finish can be an issue as well. If you want an apple dislay go to 30" which is more flexible (connectivity -wise). Tha Apple Mini-Displayport is not for anyone but brand new macbook owners.

  • Pros: - Beautiful design expected of Apple - Nice size - Excellent resolution, great for stills and photos
  • Cons: - 14ms response time, seriously?!?! Horrible for gaming or high action graphics (hello movies and stuff!) - Price! I can get a better value with an Acer or I-INC - No good with anything but a Mac

"Dell is gonna take a bite out of Apple Now"

aimeelynnw, CNET
7 January 2009
  • Pros: I can't say cause I haven't bought one yet but i want one real bad.....see cons...
  • Cons: Why in the world would you not make this compatible with all. My guess is they are losing a ton of business from this choice of limiting it to one computer connector. Doh
