Default Apple's Thunderbolt Display, A Couple of Reviews

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.macworld.com/article/162442/2011/09/apples_thunderbolt_display_a_compelling_device_for_2011_macbook_air.html#lsrc.rss_main' target='_blank'>http://www.macworld.com/article/162...l#lsrc.rss_main</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"From most angles, Apple's new 27-inch Thunderbolt Display looks just like the 27-inch LED Cinema Display released last year. However, if you take a closer look at what the Thunderbolt Display has to offer, you'll find a display that's ideal for owners of the Thunderbolt-equipped MacBook Air."</em></p><p><img height="369" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1316804118.usr105634.jpg" width="600" /></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>This isn't the only review of the new display, as AnandTech also has a pretty in-depth one available <a href="http://www.anandtech.com/show/4832/the-apple-thunderbolt-display-review" target="_blank">here</a>. As I've said before on these pages, this is definitely on my want list and once I get a new &nbsp;MacBook Air with Thunderbolt it will be my next purchase. 4 out of 5 mice with this review from MacWorld, which is brief and to the point, but I kind of like that.&nbsp;</p>

I always find it interesting that when AnandTech reviews Apple monitors, they give them all sorts of praise, but when you look at the charts, they nearly always appear in the bottom third. If they're so wonderful, why are they in the bottom third nearly every time? Maybe all of the monitors in that group are good, but if that's the case, why don't all of the other monitors receive similar praise?

There's something funny going on there.

I also believe there is a fundamental misunderstanding of how the Thunderbolt monitors work. I believe that only changes are sent to the monitors over Thunderbolt, not the full image stream. So failing to include full-screen motion video in their performance test sort of ignores where performance could be hit the most.

Not their finest work.
