Good: A beautiful designed product. Beautiful colors, very still image.
Bad: It just stopped working after a bit more than 2 years. No refund from Apple.
Comment: In January 2006 I bought this very beautiful product. I bought it because the image is completely still, and the colors are wonderful. After being a happy owner for 2 years and a few months the screen suddenly stopped giving an image. After a while it came back for a few days.. and then it stopped again. I had the product send to Apple. They confirmed the malfunction, it wasn't the powersupply, they told me they needed to replace the central unit (this is basically the screen without the housing), which would cost me almost as much as buying a new cinema display.
I was very disappointed. Ok, my garantee was just over, but this is not the service you expect from a product in this price class. A letter with my complaint to Apple did not help me anything.
Some research on the net showed I'm not only owner of a problematic cinema display. Please consider this before you buy this product.
Good: Sleek design, USB and Firewire ports, hidden power and display buttons.
Bad: No HDMI
Comment: I am very happy with this product. It provides high quality images with a classy design to boot. Another hit from Apple.
Good: Beautiful, functional and crystal-clear
Bad: Slightly pricey, but it's only money. Doubles-up as a central heating system for my computer room!
Comment: A beautiful display that does nothing more than what it says on the box - Apple really don't need to shout about their products. It runs a little warm but it's perfect for my video editing, no more straining my eyes on a small screen
Bad: The price
Comment: Great display for watchin movies or just getting your work done in pleasure. I wish i had two, side by side
