Video Review

The superior choice for photography and graphic arts . . .

Yes it is more expensive than other monitors, but if you have an iMac (like I have) the Cinema Display will color-match with a lot less effort than other options. I first tried a top-rated LED HDMI TV as a “second screen” and simply could never get the colors to match the iMac main screen using either the PC or HDMI connections. I sent it back to Amazon and ordered the Apple Cinema Display. Within a few minutes after setting it up I was editing in Photoshop with perfect color match between the two screens.

If “color-match” is not something you care about, then there are many options, but for graphics and photography, the Cinema Display is a clear winner!

Awesome Display

Very good upgrade from the 24 inch. The glossy glass display goes all the to the edge. As Jonathan Ive calls it “either its display or is not display… there is no visual interruption so everything is about your content.”

This is not your ordinary display, it is LED back-lit, but its made of IPS display — the same display used for the iPad and iPhone 4. Also, they increased the punch on the speakers, so you feel a little more punch!

The only thing is that I would wish that it has more USB ports.

See the Bigger Picture.

A 27-inch widescreen display with LED backlight technology. Stunning is an understatement.

A bigger display for your biggest ideas.

Connect your Mac with Mini DisplayPort to the LED Cinema Display for a panoramic viewing experience unlike any other. You get a huge 27-inch glossy widescreen display with a cinematic 16:9 aspect ratio and an astonishing 2560-by-1440 resolution. With 60 percent more pixels than the 24-inch LED Cinema Display, the 27-inch LED Cinema Display gives you even more room for all your windows and applications.

LED backlighting. One bright idea.

Full brightness with no waiting. That’s the big advantage of LED backlight technology. Unlike most displays that take time to warm up before they reach maximum brightness, an LED-backlit display is instantly on and uniformly bright. LED backlighting also gives you greater control over screen brightness. So you can tune the LED Cinema Display to suit the ambient light in even the dimmest room.

Stunning from every angle.

The LED Cinema Display looks great from any seat in the house, thanks to a premium display technology called in-plane switching (IPS). IPS gives you a bright picture with excellent color consistency — even if you’re viewing the display from the side.

49 watts of stereo sound.

The LED Cinema Display gives you more than video — it gives you audio, too. The built-in 49-watt speaker system includes an integrated subwoofer that delivers immersive, full-range sound for music, movies, and games.

Built-in iSight and microphone.

With the built-in iSight camera and microphone, you can connect your Mac desktop or notebook — open or closed — and have video chats or take pictures using Photo Booth.1

Ambient light sensor.

The new ambient light sensor intelligently adjusts the brightness of the LED Cinema Display to your room environment. This gives you the perfect brightness for any situation while using the least amount of energy necessary.

Smooth-motion hinge.

Tilt the LED Cinema Display to get the viewing angle that’s best for your work environment. With its smooth-motion hinge, adjustment is effortless. Choose an angle anywhere from -5 to 25 degrees.

Plug-and–Play Perfection.

One cable that replaces three. Ready, set, go.

Works with every new Mac.

You can connect your LED Cinema Display to any of the current lineup of Mac notebooks and desktop computers: MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac, Mac mini, and Mac Pro. That’s because the LED Cinema Display uses the ultracompact Mini DisplayPort connector. While other display connectors have you lining up pins or fumbling with screws, the Mini DisplayPort connector is easy in, easy out. And because it carries both video and audio, there’s one less cable to worry about.

MagSafe connector.

The LED Cinema Display includes a MagSafe connector that powers and charges your MacBook, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air. The connector sits on your desk, ready and waiting. No need to unwind the cord to the power adapter that came with your notebook. Leave it exactly where it is, in your bag.

Three USB 2.0 ports.

On the back of the display, you’ll find three self-powered USB ports. You enable them — along with the built-in iSight camera, microphone, and speakers — the moment you plug the USB connector into your Mac with Mini DisplayPort. Connect a printer, camera, iPod, iPhone, whatever you like. And they can stay connected — charging your iPod or iPhone — even if you grab your notebook and go or shut down for the night.

Environmental Status Report

The LED Cinema Display is designed with the following features to reduce its environmental impact:

  • Arsenic-free display glass
  • Mercury-free
  • BFR-free
  • PVC-free
  • Highly recyclable aluminum and glass enclosure

The greenest Apple display ever.

The LED Cinema Display is the most environmentally friendly display Apple has ever created.

Free of harmful toxins.

One thing that makes the LED Cinema Display so remarkable is what it lacks. Namely, environmentally harmful mercury. And like the latest iPod, iPhone, and Mac computers, the glass used in the display is arsenic-free. Even the cables and components are BFR- and PVC-free.

Highly recyclable.

Because of its glass and aluminum construction, the LED Cinema Display is highly recyclable. So when you eventually part with it, it can be remade into something new.

Energy efficient.

The LED Cinema Display is designed to be energy efficient right out of the box. It uses mercury-free, energy-efficient LED backlight technology and an ambient light sensor that dims automatically to save energy and provide more comfortable viewing in less brightly lit rooms. It also features a highly efficient power supply to minimize the power wasted when bringing electricity from the wall for the display and to charge your Mac notebook.

EPEAT Gold and ENERGY STAR 5.0 qualification.

The LED Cinema Display meets the stringent low power requirements set by the EPA, giving it ENERGY STAR 5.0 qualification. ENERGY STAR 5.0 sets significantly higher efficiency limits for power supplies and aggressive limits for the display’s typical annual power consumption. In addition, it has earned EPEAT Gold status for its responsible manufacture, energy efficiency, and recyclability.2
