Untitled[edit]

2.1 would imply that the monitor includes a subwoofer or some other limited range speaker, I don't believe this to be the case. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.149.178.49 (talk) 19:56, 30 September 2009 (UTC)


The 20" display is not an HD display. It's the Apple Cinema Display. Therefore I suggest that this article is misnamed: Cinema HD Display is the name of the 23" and 30" models, not the whole lineup.

Fewer?[edit]

Article says: "Older models ran DVI, USB, and 25V power all through a single ADC connector. Current models use plain DVI, for better compatibility and fewer cables." Maybe I'm missing something: how is this fewer cables?


somethings weird about the page. I tried making it sound a lil' better but gave up and left it. ALso dual link Dvi is not "exotic" Where did that come from anyway.

Price comparisons[edit]

The E207WFP is not really a directly competing product to the Apple Cinema Display, at least for its intended market. For example, the technical specs for the E207WFP are slightly less capable in terms of color reproduction than the Apple displays. One of the other Dell displays (like the slightly more expensive, but still cheaper than Apple 2007WFP at $339) would make for a better comparison.


Speaking of which, could someone please confirm the criticism section was not written by a Dell employee?

"Generally recommended"[edit]

I have added a "citation needed" in the claim that "at the moment the Dell is generally recommended over the cinema display because of it's much newer panel". Who is the Dell generally recommended by? Any links to sources? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.84.4.249 (talk) 06:53, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

I agree here and have removed that part from the section... it is completely meaningless to compare a display with an S-IPS panel against one with a PVA one. I use the Dell display described at work but would not be able to use it for serious photography work as darker shades appear extremely inaccurately. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.193.93.137 (talk) 21:01, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Power and Settings controls[edit]

The Apple Cinema Display that I have has a lighed power touch-point on the lower-right corner, and a settings touch-point on the lower-left corner of the frame, plus USB ports on the back. This is an older ADC model, 23", I think. (I'm not at home at the moment, and this is a hand-me-down.) The article makes no mention of these for the ADC connected models, though I assume that it's common to those. Filker0 (talk) 17:17, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Discontinued?[edit]

I would like to point out that the standard Apple Cinema Display has not been officially discontinued by Apple. Rather, it has become it's legacy hardware.

Removed "Discontinued" date - the display is still for sale, almost certainly because the Mac Pro does not support the Thunderbolt Display (not having a Thunderbolt port). "Reduced marketing emphasis" is not the same as "discontinued". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 140.168.135.1 (talk) 23:47, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

  • The displays are still for sale in the store. They haven't been discontinued and I think it's for the reason 140.168 said (because that's why I bought mine yesterday). Since there's no citation for the supposed discontinuation I'm removing the date and sentence which claims they are discontinued. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Xstonedogx (talkcontribs) 17:45, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

Brightness of LED displays[edit]

The text states " It is the first Cinema Display to use LED backlighting and Mini DisplayPort for video input; however, the LED backlighting is edge-lit as opposed to the fully back-lit CCFL of the previous models, resulting in a lower brightness cd/m2 output. " But the data in the tables contradicts that claim. The LED backlighting is brighter. Photomania2016 (talk) 14:45, 15 August 2016 (UTC)Photomania2016
