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

Cam, Amazon

  • 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, Amazon
2 March 2014
  • 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...

UGH

  • 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

Bill "art4bill", Amazon
12 October 2013
  • 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.

Does Wake from Sleep

Robert, B&H Photo
24 October 2012
  • Excerpt: The monitor attached to a Mac Mini will not wake up when the Mac Mini falls asleep. Check the support/discussion boards--you will see many people have this problem and there is no fix other than to unplug the Thunderbolt cable then plug it back in.
  • Pros: Sharp Image, Vivid Colors

Nice while it lasted

Amazon Customer "professor k", Amazon

  • Summary: There's nothing like having 27" of screen real estate! And the Apple display certainly looks good, in terms of both image quality and appearance. Unfortunately, the thing crapped out after 14 months -- two months past the one year warranty period.
