I have just purchased an apple 27 inch monitor lets start with the pros of this screen:
It is a very bright screen that also has a automatic adjustment this will make the screen brighter or dimmer dependant on what type of light condition that you are in.
It is also very easy to set up it has two wires that are coming out of the back one of which is a power cord and also the other wire that splits into three plugs into the mac which turns the screen on.
Also the display takes power even when there is not a mac plugged into it this means that you can use the three usb ports in the back to charge any devices that charge via usb anytime
The screen uses one of the macs usb port although it does give three usb pots at the back of the display which comes in very useful when transferring information from multiple data storage devices
The sound quality is good as the monitor has built in speakers the volume can go loud without distortion
The display comes with a built in isight this is very clear
Also one of the wires that is attached to the screen is a macbook charger which comes in useful as you can charge your macbook while charging it.
This display can only be used with macs due to the mini display port it uses.
The cables that plugs into the mac are short and is unlikely to reach from one corner of the desk to the other.
The display has a glass to glass edge which looks very nice although is a fingerprint magnet and also reflect the sun a lot and can be disorienting.
In order to use this you have to have a relatively new mac as it uses apples new mini display port
On youtube in full screen can put the sound out of sync this could just be my macbook
Overall a great product that is fit for purpose and is very reliable.
With the Apple LED Cinema Display, you can turn your MacBook into a desktop in three easy connections. The universal MagSafe connector charges your notebook. A Mini DisplayPort connector makes attaching an external display even easier and faster than before. And a USB connector provides access to three USB 2.0 ports. There's also a built-in iSight camera, microphone, and speaker system that provide a true desktop experience. Made of aluminum and glass, the LED Cinema Display is the perfect companion for the MacBook family.
