The Apple LED Cinema Display 27-inch is a TFT active-matrix LCD display released in 2010 as an upgrade from the original 24-inch LED. Featured is in-play switching (IPS) technology, which allows the display to support a 2560x1440 resolution with a 16:9 aspect ratio across an ultra wide 178-degree viewing angle—making it an optimal choice for professional graphic artists. It also supports a standard 1080p HD resolution, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, and a 12ms response time. Some of the more notable features include a built-in, premium-grade iSight video camera with a built-in microphone; an integrated 2.1-channel, high-power speaker system; and a three-port USB hub.

Additional Information

Benefits include no reflections when staring at dark images, less user fatigue when working for long periods of time, and more vibrant colors. Some setbacks include an outrageous price and limited connection options.
