About Apple 27"" Thunderbolt Display

The new Apple Thunderbolt Display can do things other displays simply can't. Of course, it delivers a brilliant viewing experience. But connect it to any Thunderbolt-enabled Mac and it becomes a plug-and-play hub for everything you do.

Features include a high-resolution 2560-by-1440 LED-backlit display, a FaceTime HD camera, high-quality audio, three USB 2.0 ports, a FireWire 800 port, a Gigabit Ethernet port and a Thunderbolt port for daisy-chaining additional high-performance devices.

Apple 27"" Thunderbolt Display Features

  • Thunderbolt I/O technology lets you move data between your devices and your computer with unprecedented speed. With two channels of 10-Gbps throughput in both directions, it's up to 20 times faster than USB 2.0 and up to 12 times faster than FireWire 800
  • With just one cable, connect any Thunderbolt-enabled Mac and get 27 inches of high-resolution screen space, high-quality audio, a FaceTime HD camera, FireWire 800 and Gigabit Ethernet ports
  • Thunderbolt port you can use to daisy-chain additional high-performance peripherals such as hard drives and video capture devices
  • It includes a MagSafe connector that powers and charges your 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
  • 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
  • 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 Thunderbolt Display to suit the ambient light in even the dimmest room
  • With the built-in FaceTime HD camera and microphone, you can connect your Mac desktop or notebook - open or closed - and make HD video calls or take a few snapshots using Photo Booth

Could not get use to Glossy surface


Over years I have been working on Apple 30" matted monitor, and when I had to switch to 27" monitor to be honest I couldn't work for 2 reasons. A:: it was SO glossy and hurting my eyes that I couldn't even edit. B:: White Balance as a default was SO blue and I had to go to store and buy newer Spyder 4 witch calibrates iLED technology monitors. Calibration helped but I still WANTED my old monitor back that had soft film look skin tones. Several guys that I know LOVE this new 27 Glossy display, personally I didn't. I do have Apple laptop that has glossy display and LOVE it, but 27 Glossy screen it's totally different story. I'll include photo so you guys can see. it. It's a superb monitor, I just got used to matted screen witch doesn't bother my eyes.

What you'd expect from Apple


Upper end home monitor at an upper end price. This is a beautiful display with a wider aspect than most others I've seen, making it more feasible to have documents open side-by-side. There is only one video connection--Thunderbolt to Mac, so don't buy unless you have a Thunderbolt port. But there are multiple ports on the back of the monitor to enhance the versatility of your computer (I use a Mac Mini). But, even well after Apple started supporting USB 3.0, they only have USB 2 ports on this monitor. It's a silly oversight. Plus Thunderbolt peripherals are much more expensive and not much faster than USB 3, making the latter more realistic as a backup drive.
