Outdated And Glitchy

Stephan K, Apple Store
3 March 2015
  • Summary: When I initially got this monitor in 2011, it was everything advertised, when connecting my macbook, it was totally reliable. Then with each update Apple put out, it started to develop more and more glitches. By the time Mavericks came out, the monitor would regularly crash my Macbook.

Weak and overpriced

Alexander C, Apple Store
26 February 2015
  • Summary: It's Apple, so it looks great out of the box but unfortunately that's where it stops.

Works for some time, then fails

Oscar F, Apple Store

  • Summary: I've had this Cinema Display for two years giving it normal use (the same as with the last model of the display which still works great). But nowadays this display it turns off and disconnects every 10 minutes. They're not designed to work for more than one or two years.

Some good, but mostly bad, poor value for the money

Michael J, Apple Store
15 June 2014
  • Summary: First, the positives: The display is gorgeous. The colors are sharp and crisp and the contrast is nice. So long as you position the display in an area where you won't get glare or reflections, you'll love the way it looks.

No matte option. Glare unbareable.

paul P, Apple Store
9 June 2014
  • Summary: The matte screen protectors don't help. They make the monitor look blurry because there is a thick layer of glass in front of the screen. Matte films need to be part of the design.

GLOSS is horrible

Stephen K, Apple Store
7 June 2014
  • Summary: Cool monitor....but if you actually have to work on it it is brutal on your eyes. The gloss is terrible if you work in a room with any light whatsoever. It's like staring in a mirror. I don't understand why they didn't make this a matte finish.
