Missed again

  • Summary: Apple makes great products. However, if you want a display that can be properly calibrated for either photography or video Apple is not a good choice. They are sexy, glossy and gorgeous to look at – but they are ill suited to serious work and this display is yet another example of Apple missing the...

Beautiful display, temperamental USB hub.

Shawn R, Apple Store
4 April 2015
  • Summary: The promise of this display is that one can plug two cords between thunderbolt-equipped Macs like my MacBook Pro Retina Late 2013 to provide not only power and display, but USB, FireWire, Ethernet, a camera, speakers, and a microphone.

beautiful, incomplete

  • Summary: The 27" display + bluetooth keyboard and trackpad, with (closed) laptop as its brains, is a great set-up to keep your back, neck, shoulders, arms and wrists where they should be while working and to keep the flexibility of the laptop. The color is beautiful.

Are glitchy connections really what Apple wants?

Curtis M, Apple Store
2 February 2015
  • Summary: Great looking display, lots of bundled ports so it can be used as a hub without extra boxes cluttering up your desk. The display connector has an attached power connector for a Macbook and Apple seems to really be pushing the display as an everything-in-one dock for when the Macbook is at home.

Fonts too small for office work with text

Andrey Z, Apple Store
16 January 2015
  • Summary: I decided to splurge and get myself an Apple 27” Thunderbolt display and, oh man, are my eyes hurting. The fonts are so small it is giving me a headache as I type this. The 27 inch screen size and 2560x1440 resolution are simply not suited for office tasks with text.

Impressive, but not perfect

JCH, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I got this monitor after hearing it looks beautiful and I was also looking forward to the Thunderbolt connectivity. It's easy to hook up and I love having all the extra ports on the back: network, USB, Thunderbolt.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors

Great monitor but other features far behind the times!

Corl L, Apple Store

  • Summary: This was a phenomenal addition to my desktop when originally purchased but it desperately needs updated! Although I'm still very pleased with its performance as a monitor, the connectivity features are far behind the times.

Glossy, must crank up brightness and connectors are odd

VICTOR O, Apple Store
5 November 2014
  • Summary: Many have reviewed that this monitor has a gloss problem, I do too. Definition is certainly good but after hours of spread sheets I find my self looking at those who are passing behind me through the reflection on my screen.

Peripherals have difficulty connecting

Eric M, Apple Store
12 September 2014
  • Summary: We have 8 MacBook Airs connected to a total of 16 of these monitors (2 monitors each). It's safe to say that when each display has the same exact issue repetitively, it's not an isolated issue, it's a design flaw.

Nice display; weak TB hub; sad you can't use with PCs

Thomas D, Apple Store
16 August 2014
  • Summary: I don't know why it didn't occur to me that I wouldn't be able to use this with my work PC. That was ultimately the issue that led me to send this back to Apple. They really need a DVI input. I just can't have a display that can't be used for telework days also.
