Apple Thunderbolt display

I recently sold my Apple display in Sept, thinking apple will update the display.. but they didn't.. I was using a third party monitor called Cineview Display a short lived start up 24" knock off.. it was so painful to read and view.. plus I missed my extra 3 inches..

I bought another apple thunderbolt display.. wow, so clear and crisp and bright..
oh well, will live with USB 2.0 ports because the quality is so amazing of the screen.

link to the third party - run if you see it.
CinemaView ships 24" LCD with Mini DisplayPort connection | MacNN

those cheap tn panels can be brutal

in my case i wish Apple would make a 24" model. it's the perfect size for me. With my iMac 27 i keep having to 'search' on the screen for things, and i find myself focusing on a smaller area at a time, leaving the rest of the display useless.

I was told that one of the reasons why we haven't seen a new Cinema Display is because the panels that are currently available at the $1000 price point is that the quality of those panels is terrible.

Might be another year before we see panels that are affordable to be Cinema Displays.

If I needed a monitor today, I'd buy the LG Thunderbolt display. Best bang for the buck in the industry right now, and it's a huge, VERY nice screen.

And also, it seems that the companies who make such panels haven't got their upgraded Mother Glass updated and into proper production and to keep the price lower for the yield they can provide.

But only God and a few of them know how they get all the proper connections added and connected to each panel. Mind blowing technology to me.

And as for HD and price point, it's almost like paying for a new Retina 27" iMac and getting the computer guts etc. for free.

Being as I am "on a budget" and thus prone to rummage around in skips, I've recently found that older ViewSonic displays used the same LGPL displays that were used in Apple Cinema Displays. I now possess a 23" issue of theirs that is quite usable.
So check it out. Obviously OEM, but you may strike a bargain!

Sure. The Apple- GT Advanced deal over sapphire glass went awry because of the GT Advanced bankrupcy. Millions of $ down the drain.

Huh..?? I'm not sure what the sapphire glass fiasco has to do with Apple displays.

Well, sapphire glass. Mainly a mobile thing it seems, but who knows?
