    First disappointing Apple product

    • Written by from Derby

    Purchased the Display with a Mac Mini in preference to the new iMac.
    Hook up was easy with only one lead and the display looks very nice but...
    There is a visible non uniformity to the brightness.Brighter at the centre of the picture and in the bottom corners.
    There is a constant electronic hum.
    Most annoying though is the very obvious audio hiss.Any sound played is accompanied by this hissing which then ceases ten seconds after the audio finishes.
    These are fairly minor niggles and may not bother others as much as me, but knowing that these issues affect every display and Apple not doing much about it (according to the apple forums etc) makes me a little jaded with the brand now.

    Doesn't daisy chain withMDP cinema screen

    • Written by from Oswestry

    You may have the impression that if you buy this display, you can use your old cinema display with its mini display port (MDP) as a second monitor, as long as it is the last in the chain. You can't! For some extraordinary reason, and as admitted by Apple themselves, although the cinema MDP plugs into the Thunderbolt port on the back of your new display, there is no pass through and it doesn't work. How on earth could Apple allow such a basic lack of functionality to happen?

    There is a work around involving an expensive Seagate disk drive adapter, which suggests that other companies know more about how to configure Thunderbolt than Apple does.

    Terrible

    • Written by from Slough

    Initially bowled over by this admittedly gorgeous display to finally being completely disappointed by having bought what is essentially a giant vanity mirror. As you duck and dive to find the best position to view the display, your back and eyes will scream in agony and beg you for something better.

    Save yourself.
