Apple Studio Display Review

 

Strong color-accuracy and color-gamut coverage results ; Impeccable cabinet design ; Sturdy, impressively machined stand ; Simple plug-and-go design for Mac use

Basic stand only tilts, and height-adjust stand is $400 extra ; Glare-resistant coating option is $300 more ; No support for HDR ; Unclear benefit from A13 Bionic chip and RAM ; USB-C/Thunderbolt ports may mandate dongles

For Mac-centric content creators, the Studio Display is a stunning, plug-and-go 5K companion for a late-model Mac (especially the 2022 Mac Studio), but the pricing for the panel and its options is hard to swallow.

Apple Studio review: Apple Studio

 

Apple Studio

Brilliant, sharp picture; quick setup.

Mac-compatible only; proprietary connection excludes older Macs.

The Studio Display is a superlative LCD with a great price. If your Mac supports the proprietary connection scheme, buy it.

Apple Studio review

 

Apple products are typically more expensive than comparable peripherals from other companies, but the $999 17-inch Studio Display meets the competition head-on. For those who have new Power Macs with an ADC slot, the Studio Display is clearly...

Apple Studio Display Review

 

The Apple Studio Display is a 27 inch monitor with a 5k resolution. It's targeted for the consumer level as Apple previously released Pro Display XDR for profess...

Excellent peak brightness and fantastic reflection handling. Wide viewing angles. Exceptional out-of-the-box accuracy. High 5k resolution delivers sharp text and images. Low input lag.

60Hz panel. Limited compatibility with Windows PCs. No HDR support. Low contrast and no local dimming. Can't remove stand to wall-mount it. Poor motion handling. No VRR support. Limited ergonomics on tilt-only version.

The Apple Studio Display is okay for mixed usage. It performs best for content creation and for office use, and you can use all of its features with a macOS device. It has exceptional out-of-the-box accuracy, and the high resolution makes it a very...

Logitech MX Mechanical review: A masterful keyboard in all switches and sizes | ZDNet

 

The MX Mechanical exemplifies Logitech's legacy in keyboard engineering, fusing the productivity chaps of the Master Series with the mechanics of the G-line.

Sturdy aluminum case ; All three switch options are premium and high quality ; Plenty of configurations for different users ; Multi-device and OS compatibility

Pricey ; Keycaps are not the most oil-resistant ; Only two tilt levels ; Minimal design may leave more to be desired

In the MX Mechanical, Logitech adds another thoughtfully-designed peripheral to its Master Series portfolio. It's rare to find a non-gaming keyboard these days that offer as much sizing and key switch options as this, making it easy to recommend for...

Apple Studio Display review

 

The Apple Studio Display is a fantastic companion to the Mac Studio, and much more besides

Competitive price point ; Much improved multimedia capabilities ; Built-in reference modes for media ; Non-reflective nano-texture glass option

Fixed height with the default stand ; Camera falls a little short of competition ; Cleaning nano-texture coating a challenge

In the new 27” 5k Studio Display, Apple has delivered not just an impressive partner to its latest M1 Mac line-up, but also a worthy replacement for their previous Cinema Display. While not quite as feature rich as the flagship 6k Pro Display XDR, the...

Apple Studio Display review: How badly do you want an all-Apple experience? | AppleInsider

 

Apple products are polarizing, but it's been some time since a product from the company has generated as much of a split opinion inside the community as the new Studio Display has.

Apple Studio Display review

 

The Studio Display is Apple's 27-inch monitor aimed at creatives, but is it worth buying?

Nice design ; Can charge your devices ; Good image quality

Need to spend extra for height adjustment ; No HDR ; Limited to 60Hz ; Webcam issues

The Studio Display is an interesting screen for creatives, and its image quality is decent, but it doesn’t live up to its potential. Lack of HDR, limited ports and an underwhelming webcam means the asking price will be too high for many. The extra...

The company's first mainstream monitor in more than a decade is a beauty to behold and packs in unrivaled sound quality.
