Three More Inches of Apple
26 May 2011
Excerpt: After releasing the 27-inch iMac in the fall of 2009 , it was only a matter of time until a 27-inch Apple LED Cinema Display ($999) made its way to Apple’s shelves. Now we’ve been given an official date of September for the IPS (In-plane switching) display, that features a massive 2560×1440...
Conclusion: I think the more compact 27-inch form factor is the right package to deal with greater than 1080p resolutions. Thirty inch monitors are great if you need more than 1920 x 1200 on a single panel but they’re bulky and don’t have a particularly great pixel density.
Conclusion: I purchased this display to get more resolution out of my MacBook Pro while cleaning up the nest of cables on my desk. Now that I don't have to use my charger when at my desk I can keep it bundled up and ready to go in my backpack.
Summary: Does a 24-inch display seem too cramped? Does a 30-inch seem too big? If so, Apple's monitor moves this week should fit you just right. Here's how Apple's latest Cinema Display reshuffles the company's lineup, along with a look at where the new product fits into the LCD market.
Excerpt: Aside from lacking a couple of inches of aluminum at the bottom, Apple’s 27-inch Cinema Display looks nearly identical to the 27-inch iMac. It has built-in speakers, an iSight camera and a microphone too, just like the iMac.
Pros: Can charge up Mac portables; built-in speakers and camera.
Cons: Mac-only; limited adjustability (no height adjustment, for example); glossy screen is prone to glare.

Conclusion: Kein Zweifel, Apples Cinema Display sieht extrem schick aus und liefert ein sehr gutes Bild, spielt allerdings seine Stärken – etwa das Akkuladen bei einem angeschlossenen MacBook – nur in Verbindung mit einem Apple-Rechner aus.
Pros: Design, Bildqualität, Verarbeitung
Cons: Preis, Wenig Schnittstellen, Schlechte Ergonomie, Extrem hoher Stromverbrauch
