Summary: I've had mine about a year, and I think it's fantastic. Beautiful, beautiful image. No flickering, no sign of bad cables. I use it with a laptop. Menu size just fine. Takes a little getting used to all that real estate at the edges, but i'm glad it's there.
Excerpt: As a heavy user of Mac and graphics software this display is fantastic. Crisp, clean & easy to set-up and customize to my liking. I only wish the adapters were offered through B&H at the time of my purchase instead of ordering them seperately from Apple.
Summary: What was never mentioned to me before at the Apple store was that I could use this monitor without opening my laptop. The base of the monitor also operates as a heat sink when the laptop is tucked away under the monitor and on top of the stand. This organization helps to clear my desk.
Summary: I am very happy with the display - it looks great on my desk, has plenty of expansion ports, camera is great, built-in speaker and microphone are of decent quality, and it works seamlessly with macbook pro and mac pro without any issues.
Summary: I have had two of the thunderbolt monitors working flawlessly with my home and my office iMacs. We have several others in the office and they have all worked without a glitch. Perhaps there are more problems with the laptops, I have only used it with the iMac, but the display gives a gorgeous image...
Summary: I have been using the Thunderbolt Display for about 6 months now. It has been a great docking station/monitor for my MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013). The display has operated perfectly - I have not had any problems that some of the other reviews mentioned.
VERY satisfied with this product as an add on for my MacBook Air (mid-2013)

Summary: I've been running a MacBook Air (mid-2013) with 1.7 Gb i7 processor, 8 GB RAM, HD Graphics 5000, and OS-X Yosemite 10.10.3. I added a Magic Mouse and a full-sized USB keyboard to allow some additional numeric and editing entry ability. I needed a bigger screen for 20+ column spreadsheet management.

Excerpt: I have been a photographer & videographer for 28 years. The Apple 27' Thunderbold Display is by far the most reliable and color accurate monitor I've ever used. We now have setup our entire production company with these Monitors.
Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
