Apple 27 Thunderbolt Display

The Apple 27 Thunderbolt Display is one of the most reliable Thunderbolt displays today. Equipped with the latest LED backlight technology and built-in A/V hardware, this Thunderbolt display provides you with a brilliant, crystal-clear way to enjoy using your Mac even more.

The expansive 27-inch glossy widescreen display is designed for panoramic viewing. The display offers a high 2560-by-1449 resolution and a cinematic 16:9 aspect ratio, so viewing photos and videos is even more enjoyable. The sheer amount of screen space also makes multi-tasking easier, making this Thunderbolt display perfect as a secondary display for any compatible Mac, including the newest Apple Mac mini. To ensure reliability, Apple's Thunderbolt display instantly delivers full, uniform brightness as soon as you switch it on, thanks to advanced LED backlight technology. The technology lets you control screen brightness, too, so you can easily adjust the display's output according to ambient light conditions.

The Apple 27' Thunderbolt Display also offers a variety of features that make it more than just a mere display. It's equipped with a built-in FaceTime HD camera and microphone, so making video calls in HD is now more convenient. The display also features several I/O ports for USB 2.0 and FireWire 800, allowing you to connect more peripherals to your Mac. The Thunderbolt Display can even charge your MacBook Pro or MacBook Air through its MagSafe connector.


With built-in Thunderbolt technology -- the fastest, most flexible I/O ever -- 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.

Thunderbolt technology built in.

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. And it allows you to connect as many as six devices through a single, compact port.

The ultimate docking station.

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 -- and a Thunderbolt port you can use to daisy-chain additional high-performance peripherals such as hard drives and video capture devices.

Plug in and power up.

The Thunderbolt Display 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.

A bigger display for your biggest ideas.

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.

LED backlighting.

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.

Built-in FaceTime HD camera and microphone.

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.

Thunderbolt Display compatibility.

Thunderbolt-enabled Macs, including the current generations of MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac mini, and iMac are fully compatible with the Apple Thunderbolt Display. Customers with Macs that only support Mini DisplayPort output, such as the Mac Pro and MacBook, as well as previous generations of MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, Mac mini, and iMac can use the 27-inch LED Cinema Display.

Good Monitor, 2013-03-22
By Apple User 
The Apple Thunderbolt Display is a very good monitor. However, it has one problem--there is no vertical adjustment so one must accept Apple's idea of the appropriate screen height.

Great monitor, 2013-04-16

The build quality of this monitor is excellent. While some monitors will fall over if you push them, this one is very sturdy and built to provide years of viewing pleasure. The resolution and color is excellent.

Expensive; but works fine, 2013-08-08
By Allen M 
I telecommute but need to travel occasionally and often visit our main office. Consequently I needed a laptop solution with a "dock" for home office use. While quite a bit more costly than an equivalent "PC" solution, Apple's Thunderbolt display fits the bill nicely enough. I only wish they made a bluetooth keyboard with a numeric keypad...
