While I love my 27-inch display, unless you have a ton of Thunderbolt accessories, its hard to ignore panels made by other companies that sell for far less.
I agree. I am contemplating getting a new display this year and have already been wavering back and forth with whether or not to get an Apple display. I have seen 27-inch monitors for less, but I think it’s worth pointing out that sometimes you get what you pay for.
If you look at CNET’s top 27-inch monitors, most of them are around the same price as the Apple display. So just be careful how cheap of a screen you buy.
