Apple 27-inch LED Cinema Display Review

Anand Lal Shimpi reviews the new display:

Overall the new 27-inch LED Cinema Display isn’t the knockout I had hoped it would be. You get 90% of the resolution of a 30-inch display, in a more compact package. The ability to charge your notebook (if you’re a modern Apple user) is a nice convenience as well. And at $999 it’s actually more affordable than most 30-inch LCDs. With a 120Hz panel and RGB LED backlighting it could have been both forward looking and near perfect, instead what we have is a display that’s good, but not great.

He doesn’t like the glare from the glass or the lack of a height adjustable stand. I’m a bit tempted to replace my 30-inch Dell because it’s noisy, the color quality isn’t great, and the built-in USB hub no longer works. Also, I’d like to be free from the problems with the Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter. However, I’m not eager to lose 160 vertical pixels.
