Elegant design, great image quality & works with Thunderbolt & Mini Display Port

Summary: I've owned the Apple LED Cinema Display for three years, initially using it with a Mac Pro and now with my new (2013) Mini. Like many reviewers here I felt it was overpriced but image and build quality are second to none, so I forked over my hard earned plastic.
Summary: This monitor is one of the best monitors I owned, and I owned quite a few expensive toys so far; Many complaint about the glare, with adequate backround light I have no problem with the glare what so ever. I would recomend this monitor to anyone that can affort to spend the money for it.
Summary: No complaints at all in the quality of display. I do wish it had more USB slots and that they were on the side or bottom and easier to reach instead of on the back and so few in number. An off switch would also be kinda nice as well as a dedicated hot line for the iPhone to plug into.
Summary: The reason for purchasing the cinema display, and not the thunderbolt display, was due to one simple fact: this model has display port. That means with a simply adapter, or not if your GPU has it, you can hook this up to any newer Mac AND Windows PC.
Summary: Two items before I say why I don't recommend this display - 1) I didn't get my display from Amazon but I consider that immaterial as the problem is with the display itself, i.e., nothing related to the seller (have posted the same review on seller's website).
Summary: I did a lot of research into three brands that use the 2560x1440, H-IPS panel in their monitors. One brand is known for having a lot of green lines going through the screen, dying out quickly, and having too much anti-glare coating.
