Make your own for $1 and buy a fancy dinner with the remaining $64.

  • Summary: Are you flipping kidding me. This is literally a piece of cardboard and a piece of string. What's worse is that the string went across the bottom of the screen and the whole thing teetered on the monitor. If this had cost $10, i'd say decent value, but $65?!?!?

Only lasted 2 years

  • Summary: LED unit broke down after 2 years of moderate use. Was told by the Genius Bar that is would cost over $800 to fix. No discount or buyback offered. I guess Apple thinks it's reasonable that a $1000 monitor should only last 2 years.

A Real Piece Of Crap!!!

Jeffrey Katz, Amazon

  • Summary: This is the most poorly made cheap product I have ever ordered through Amazon. The Hood barely balances on monitor. And - the inside of the cardboard is not black, but grey, and bounces light back onto the monitor!

Apple fail

  • Summary: This display worked great when I first plugged it in. Then my mac book pro went to sleep for a while and when I woke it up, the Thunderbolt Display did not come on. Some genius at apple decided not to have an actual power button on the thing.

Never Again

SLS "Researcher", Amazon

  • Summary: After about a year, my mac mini continually fails to finish booting to a login prompt screen. First apple blamed my USB cables (pulled them out); next my firewire 800 connection (external hard drives (pulled them out); now the thunderbolt display has no connections in it and STILL fails to finish...

  • Summary: Horrible. It weighs down the monitor and tips the iMac screen forward ... makes for more work than it's worth.

Doesn't work at all

Chris "art4bill", Amazon

  • Summary: Purchased this monitor hood with high expectations and was really disappointed. Thanks to the hinged monitor design of the iMac the weight of the hood pushes the iMac screen down. Unfortunately there's no counterbalance and no way to prevent the screen from doing this.

$1000 boat anchor

David B, Apple Store

  • Summary: Worked well for a year, then had major audio problems (static, quite loud). Finally, it was powered off to try and fix the audio and then the display went black. Not working at all now. VERY disappointed in Apple, there doesn't seem to be any quality control any more for their products.
