Apple LED Cinema Display (27-inch

CNET
1 day ago
  • Summary: As a desktop display and USB extender, the 27-inch Apple LED Cinema Display works wonderfully; however, for $1,000, there are better monitors that offer more options, including PC and Mac compatibility.
  • Cons: Thanks to Apple's decision to only include a Mini DisplayPort connection, the LED Cinema Display can only be used with Macs from late 2008 and on. Also, the display lacks ergonomic features and more-granular customization options. Some users will not appreciate the overly reflective and glossy screen.

Three More Inches of Apple

Gear Patrol
18 May 2013
  • 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 resolution, and a true 16:9 aspect ratio.

Review: Apple 27-inch LED Cinema Display

PaulStamatiou.com
21 November 2010
  • Excerpt: I've had an interesting past with large monitors. Back in 2007 while I was still in college, I decided to purchase a Dell 30-inch LCD display . Astute PSTAM fans noticed that display in the background of my Nike ad . That was back before glossy displays were ubiquitous, when most people had never heard of Mini DisplayPort, when the first generation iPhone had only been out for 3 days (and I still had a BlackBerry Curve ) and when I thought Logitech 2.1 computer speakers...

From the Lab Apple 27-inch LED Cinema Display

Macworld
29 October 2010
  • Excerpt: (1 items) If you’re a fan of the 27-inch 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 27-inch LED Cinema Display . The display is basically a 27-inch iMac without the computer, matching closely that popular iMac’s display in both specifications and design.
  • Pros: Magsafe connector to charge Mac portables, Built-in speakers and iSight
  • Cons: Limited adjustment options, No height or pivot adjustment, Glossy screen is prone to glare, Apple doesn’t officially support using the LED Cinema Display on anything but Mini DisplayPort

Apple 27-inch LED Cinema Display Review

AnandTech
28 September 2010
  • 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. The 27-inch 16:9 panel in the new LED Cinema Display is a nice alternative. The styling is impeccable however Apple made two sacrifices in order to design such a pretty display.

Apple 27-inch LED Cinema Display review

Digital Arts
13 January 2011
  • 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.

Test: Apple LED Cinema Display MC007ZMA (TFT-Monitor)

CHIP Online
20 August 2011
  • 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. So ist der Monitor für PC-Anwender letztlich ein Display, das allein mit tollem Design glänzt und klasse Bildqualität liefert.
  • Pros: Design, Bildqualität, Verarbeitung
  • Cons: Preis, Wenig Schnittstellen, Schlechte Ergonomie, Extrem hoher Stromverbrauch
