Summary: The Cinema Display is a fantastic addition for those who use a MacBook at home, but if you own a Blu-ray player or any Hi-Def box as well, you'll pine for some way to connect the two. As good as it is, it's probably only for Mac manics and people with money to burn.
Summary: Reflective mirror-like screens are a divisive issue, which will at once separate some potential buyers. But as a one-stop solution for new MacBook owners looking to expand upon existing screen space, the LED Cinema Display works flawlessly. It adds more pixels, up to and beyond Full HD coverage, and also gently augments existing speaker performance. The quality of fit and finish are truly second to none, highlighting Appleâ€™s remarkable attention to detail.
Excerpt: (1 items) Apple’s new LED Cinema Display is the company’s first display designed specifically for use with its laptop line. The new display looks a lot like a 24-inch iMac ( ), minus an inch or so of thickness and the few inches below the iMac’s screen. It’s a bright and glossy-screened LCD that has some very appealing features, but a very limited list of supported Macs.
Pros: Excellent viewing angle, Single three-headed cable provides power, USB 2.0 connectivity and signal
Cons: Settings not easily customizable, No swivel, pivot, or height adjustment, Works only with Apple’s latest laptops
Excerpt: If you’re a fan of the 27in iMac, but don’t want to give up the portability of your MacBook Pro or expandability of your Mac Pro, Apple thinks you’ll love its new 27in LED Cinema Display. The display is basically a 27in iMac without the computer, matching the iMac closely in both specifications and design.
MagSafe connector to charge Mac portables, built-in speakers and iSight
Limited adjustment options, glossy screen is prone to glare, Apple doesn’t officially support using the LED Cinema Display on anything but Mini DisplayPort

Summary: Even if you own a new MacBook Pro and you’ve got around $1500 to spend on an LED monitor, we can't recommend this disappointing display. The Apple LED Cinema Display looks great, and provides power to Mac laptops, but it suffers from output quality and works only with the very latest Mac laptops.
Pros: Great styling
Cons: Output is very poor indeed by professional design standards
