This 27-inch dis­play costs as much as a pro-level one, yet doesn’t have sig­nif­i­cantly more fea­tures than some of the cheaper dis­plays on test – it won’t even tilt or pivot.

On the plus side, it does have a built-in 2.1 sound sys­tem and we­b­cam. It also has Ap­ple’s fast Thun­der­bolt con­nec­tion, which en­ables you to daisy-chain de­vices. (That’s great if you’ve got a Mac, but PC users won’t want it.) Images look ter­rific and there’s a 2560x1440 pixel res­o­lu­tion.

Ap­ple is great with de­sign, so this looks fan­tas­tic. If you al­ready own a Mac, it will be tempt­ing.

Pros: A no-brainer for Mac own­ers who love Thun­der­bolt.

Cons: Ex­pen­sive com­pared to oth­ers such as the Viewsonic.

We say: A trend-set­ting dis­play, but too ex­pen­sive.

It’s gor­geous – but it costs as much as a pro dis­play and many of the cheaper dis­plays have the same fea­tures
