There are many similarities between both of these displays. Each of these Apple displays measures up to 27 inches on the diagonal and connects to your Mac via Thunderbolt. Albeit different generations of the high-speed connector.
Like its predecessor, the 27-inch LED Cinema Display, the resolution is 25601440 pixels in a 16:9 aspect ratio. It was made with aluminum and glass, having a similar appearance to the contemporary ranges of iMac and MacBook Pro unibody designs. The display featured a built-in 720p FaceTime HD camera (replacing the iSight in the previous model), microphone, and stereo speaker system with subwoofer (2.1 channel). An octopus cable with Thunderbolt and MagSafe is permanently attached to the back of the display for data and charging MacBooks, respectively. On the rear of the display there is a Thunderbolt port, a FireWire 800 port, three USB 2.0 ports and a Gigabit Ethernet port.
As you can see from the photo, the powered off display makes for an imposingly dark finish. The bezel is almost invisible, and blends seamlessly into the 27-inch display while the monitor is powered off. Only the small, subtle Apple logo reminds us what we're looking at.
We found that at 45 degrees, the contrast ratio for the Apple Thunderbolt display fell noticeably, from a contrast ratio of 850:1 to a contrast ratio of 18:1. While this is surprisingly low, it may not prove to be much of a problem unless you are attempting to view the Thunderbolt display with a group, and its 27-inch screen is wide enough for at least three people to watch at a head-on angle.
The Apple Thunderbolt Display (MSRP $999) is quite a bit more expensive than the HP ZR24w (MSRP $349), and also has the limitation of being Mac only. They performed similarly in contrast and color, with the HP performing a little bit better at maximum contrast ratio because of its extremely high peak white, and the Apple performing slightly better on our color temperature test. The HP offers more connectivity options, but the Apple has pretty nice built-in speakers and an HD camera. The choice between these two is really down to the user and their budget--you get a 27-inch widescreen display with one of the highest resolutions on the market with the Thunderbolt Display, but you're going to pay for it, too.
The Thunderbolt Display is very attractive, and has the performance parameters and flexible features to back up its $999 MSRP. Mac users with the budget to invest in this display will not be disappointed; if you've found you need some extra real estate for your Mac workstation, or perhaps feel that you'd enjoy your MacBook a little more if you could render it upon a 27-inch widescreen display, the Apple Thunderbolt Display will likely be on top of your wishlist.
At almost half the price, the 24-inch 4K UltraFine (full review) is a compelling option for an Apple-endorsed display for those okay with the smaller size. With an MSRP of $700, it offers upstream and downstream Thunderbolt ports like the BenQ and LG 32UL950-W so you can daisy chain or get the full 40 Gbps speeds without having to use a separate dock.
Connect your Thunderbolt-enabled Mac to the Thunderbolt Display for a panoramic viewing experience unlike any other. This huge 27-inch glossy widescreen display features a cinematic 16:9 aspect ratio and an astonishing 2560-by-1440 resolution. That gives you more room to work with apps on your MacBook Air or MacBook Pro. And a worthy desktop companion to your iMac or Mac mini.
The Apple Thunderbolt Display (27-Inch) is intended to be the \"ultimate docking station\" for a Thunderbolt-equipped Mac notebook (it is not compatible with earlier Macs). Thunderbolt makes it possible to connect one cable and use this display's built-in FaceTime HD camera, mic, 2.1 speakers (49 watts), three USB 2.0 ports, single Firewire \"800\" port, single Gigabit Ethernet port, and Thunderbolt port. In addition to the built-in Thunderbolt cable, the display also has a built-in MagSafe connector that charges a Thunderbolt-equipped MacBook Air or MacBook Pro.With the exception of connectivity, this display is similar to the LED Cinema Display (27-Inch) that preceded it, and likewise uses the same sleek aluminum case and features a 27-inch glossy LED-backlit TFT active-matrix LCD display with IPS technology and an optimum resolution of 2560x1440. It has a 178 degree horizontal and vertical viewing angle, a \"typical\" brightness of 375 cd/m2, contrast ratio of 1000:1, and a 12 ms response time.
However, I'm wondering if that is true since you can buy hubs (OWC Thunderbolt 2 Dock) which this guide says will run over a single Thunderbolt 2 to Thunderbolt 3 adapter. These hubs can have various thunderbolt/hdmi/ethernet connections. In principle, aren't I using the Thunderbolt display in the same manner
Pretty much all device expansion on modern day PCs happens via PCI Express. Several years ago it was hard to find PCIe sound cards or Ethernet controllers, but these days vanilla PCI slots are nearing extinction and PCIe is the de facto standard. Ethernet, USB and FireWire controllers all exist as single-lane PCIe devices. Put a bunch of them at the other end of a Thunderbolt cable and you no longer need to plug in a bunch of individual cables into your notebook when at your desk. Send DisplayPort over the same cable and you can actually move all of those ports onto your monitor, thereby using a single cable to carry everything but power to your display. And this is exactly what Apple has done with its new Thunderbolt Display. By mating its 27-inch LED Cinema Display with a bunch of integrated IO controllers, Apple is hoping to deliver a display that's more of a mobile docking station than just a passive way to display video.
The Thunderbolt Display uses a near, if not perfectly, identical panel to what was in last year's 27-inch LED Cinema Display. You get a 27-inch, 16:9, 2560 x 1440 LED backlit display capable of at least 350 nits at full brightness. Apple seems to conservatively spec its desktop displays as we were able to measure 425 nits at max brightness. The uber brightness comes in handy because the display does have a glossy finish. Indoors it's not really a problem unless you're watching a dark movie scene with the display lit by a sun-facing window. Even then, cranking up the brightness all the way is usually enough to overcome any significant glare. As with all glossy displays, if you have light control (e.g. curtains or blinds) you'll be just fine.
Aesthetically the Thunderbolt Display continues Apple's aluminum meets glass design language. The front of the display is all glass, while the edges and back are all aluminum. Along the top surface of the display is a mic for the integrated FaceTime HD camera. The outgoing 27-inch LED Cinema Display (still available for purchase online) sported a 640 x 480 camera, while the Thunderbolt Display ups capture resolution to 1280 x 720.
You don't have to be an Apple fanboy to appreciate the new Apple Thunderbolt Display ($999 direct), but you will need to have a Thunderbolt-ready Mac destkop or laptop to use it, and be willing to shell out close to a grand for the privilege. This 27-inch beauty is the first display to utilize Thunderbolt I/O technology, and its connectivity prowess makes it an ideal docking station for Thunderbolt-enabled MacBooks. It also delivers bright, accurate colors and excellent image detail. Its flaws—a relatively slow response time produces some motion artifacts, and a glossy screen coating that can be very reflective—is somewhat minor compared with what it has to offer. It earns our Editors' Choice for high-end monitors.
Design and FeaturesDesign-wise, the Thunderbolt Display looks exactly like the Apple Cinema Display. The 27-inch, 2,560-by-1,440 resolution IPS (in-plane switching) panel is housed in the same silver aluminum cabinet and is supported by the same angled stand which contains a smooth, easy to maneuver tilt mechanism. You can't adjust the panel's height or swivel it for a better angle, however. Edge-to-edge glass over piano black bezels and rounded corners provide plenty of style, but the glossy glass is very reflective. Apple logos can be found on the rear of the cabinet and on the lower front bezel, and a FaceTime HD camera is embedded in the upper bezel. The cabinet also holds a 2.1 audio system (two speakers and a subwoofer) that delivers 49 watts of rich, crystal clear sound with incredibly deep bass response. It is hands-down the best audio output I've heard from a desktop display and a good deal better than a number of HDTVs that I've reviewed.
The panel is 2.25 inches in full depth and about 25.6 inches wide. The bezel, flush with the screen, is 1.1 inches wide on the right and left sides, and the distance from the bottom of the bezel to the desktop is 3.6 inches. The foot stand is 7.4 inches wide and 8.2 inches deep, and the monitor hardly moved when we knocked it from the sides. This is in part thanks to the flatness and width of the foot stand, but also to the display's heavy 24-pound weight.
PerformanceWe tested the 27-inch Apple Thunderbolt Display through its Thunderbolt input, connected to a MacBook running Windows 7, through Boot Camp. The display posted a composite score of 97 on CNET Labs' DisplayMate-based performance tests.
Having said that, it's pretty ferociously expensive compared to other 2560 x 1440 resolution 27-inch displays. You can find displays for less than $300 with the same resolution and the same screen size. And connecting them to a Mac with Thunderbolt is trivial: You usually just need a Thunderbolt to DVI or HDMI adapter to make it happen.
hello, does the late 2013 iMac support the mini displayport through the thunderbolt socket Do I need to purchase mini display port to mini displayport to connect a mini displayport monitor Or would it just work with a thunderbolt cableThanks.
How can I connect my iMac (27-inch, Mid 2010) that has a
