Fantastic, Convenient But Aging
11 January 2016
Summary: I use this display with both my Mac mini and my Late 2011 MBP. The image quality is fantastic along with the convenience of only plugging in the Thunderbolt and MagSafe (on my MBP) and subsequently being connected to the web via hardwire and all of your USB accessories like a keyboard and Hard...
Summary: The product works as advertised and Thunderbolt is always a great way to add peripherals and transfer data. The best thing is that the ports behind the monitor continue to work even when computer is asleep or turned off.
Summary: Brilliant display quality and no issues with any part of it - all works very well for most situations. However, if you are using a Mac Mini, the graphics (Intel HD 4000) aren't suitable for high-end gaming, due to the Mini having no graphics card of its own.
Excerpt: The good:
First off, great looking display. Resolution and colors look amazing. Love the single cable from the MacBook Pro via Thunderbolt. Love the doc in the back too. Love that they put a Firewire 800 port there too.
The not so good:
Really a short list. First, pricey - no real surprise there.
Summary: Pros- -Speakers -Resolution -Color -Styling -Build Quality -Rear Ports Cons- -PRICE -I bought two within the same generation, however over a generation change of the macbook. I noticed immediately that my newer one had a little bit of a blue-greenish tint compared to the other.
Summary: Picked up the Thunderbolt Display for my photo editing work. Very pleased with the resolution, especially since I'm used to the Retina quality on my late 2013 Macbook Pro. Simple, elegant, Apple ease of use since the display provides power for the Macbook and a dock for peripherals.
I own 2 Thunderbolt Displays and running them on my 2012 Macbook Air.

Summary: I really like the product so much so that I bought another even if I don't know if my MBA 2012 can run two displays. It's quite disappointing that this 2015 Apple is backing up USB-C that might pose a problem for Thunderbolt tech...
