Great Monitor - One Major Flaw (For Me)

Ozric Tentacle, B&H Photo
24 September 2014
  • Excerpt: This is a great monitor, if a little old. The quality of the screen is amazing with colours that pop out at you. I thoroughly enjoyed the two days I had with them (I had ordered two to go with my mid-2014 MacBook Pro). Of disappointment was the fact that the USB ports were only 2.0 and not 3.0 rendering them fairly useless as far as extending the MacBook Pro's ports. I'm sure if the rumoured 4K version will upgrade those.
  • Pros: Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
  • Cons: Bootcamp Issues

Excellent display; so-so dock

wmkphoto, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: The display is excellent. Good color, detail and easy on my eyes for editing photos. Calibrates easy although mine didn't need any out of the box. I love the size, weight and construction. The docking function is a half hearted attempt though. I love the FW800 port, but two USB 2 ports? Not USB 3? Just shows Apple design is far from perfect. I use the USB 2 ports for my Wacom Tablet but still plug my USB 3 card reader into my laptop.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Lightweight
  • Cons: Usb 2 Ports Really

Superb monitor for medical images

Tiffany, B&H Photo
20 May 2014
  • Excerpt: The monitor is being used to display high resolution microscope slides and medical images. The clarity and color definition are superb and provide great improvement in a demanding application over a standard monitor. The built-in USB, Firewire, and ethernet connections are very helpful when connecting to a laptop rather than hooking/unhooking all of these. The additional pixels over a 24 inch are very helpful when you can't attach two monitors.
  • Pros: Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
  • Cons: No height adjustment

  • Excerpt: I connect this screen up to my mac book for a bigger display when I'm at home. The display is gorgeous - crisp dispay, vibrant colours and natural looking motion on the display. The monitor itself is similar to a lot of apple products - it looks stylish and well constructed. The only complaints that I have with the monitor are A) It's Apple and the price tag reflects that... but it's usually worth the price.
  • Pros: Sharp Image, Stylish Hardware, Vivid Colors
  • Cons: Cost

Works great w/ my elder Macbook Air

Chris Ryan, Amazon
23 April 2014
  • Summary: It serves as a docking station, mostly. The plugs in the back are sufficient for running the rest of my computer. My one complaint is that you cannot daisy-chain a non-Thunderbolt display off of this one. My setup is a 13" Macbook Air, closed while running this TB display as the primary display. I'd like to daisy-chain a second large monitor (1080p non-TB display) or projector with an adapter off of this monitor. Not allowed.

Beware of the condensation

Héctor Nieves, Amazon
16 March 2014
  • Summary: This is a fantastic monitor, hands down the best display I've ever had. It was very attractive to me, because I needed a larger screen to connect to my MacBook Pro and this one could power my computer while it was plugged in. I also needed a color accurate monitor for my graphic design work. However, in the dead of winter, when the house gets cold, it's hard to work on it because it as it warms up, it starts to fog up on the INSIDE. Way to go, Apple.

Great monitor

  • Excerpt: Great monitor. Plug and play with apple mini computer. Fantastic detail, great contrast, accurate colors. Only downside is that this monitor is subject to reflections. Probably would be better with the Apple retina display. Otherwise I would rate it 5 stars.

For gamers and most users but not rgb

  • Excerpt: The monitor is very good for most users. I found that its weak area to be the lower range working with photography printing with critical RGB. I returned the monitor to B H to get a more professional level for my work in photography.
