The Apple Pro Display XDR is UNDERRATED.

  • My initial review of the Pro Display XDR! Apple's new 2019 Mac Pro is no doubt but I'm most excited for Apple's Pro Display XDR which is a 32-inch 6K HDR Display that pack 1,000 nits of sustained brightness and rivals monitors up to $40,000. Yes, the $999 Apple stand sold separately is inarguably overpriced but even if Apple charged $5,999 and included the stand, it would be a great deal.

      underrated.. are you for real or just world biggest backbone bending apple shill that now trying to pay back for your Apple discount.
      There is simply no contest vs an OLED display even Sony HX310 who also are an LCD though a dual layer... is simply in another league..
      OLED even more.
      You will get greyish black with apple monitor., here versus another LCD -
      Extensive blooming

    This is objectively not to the same grade as the sony monitor.
    for prosumer/ youtube content, sure, for the film industry, nah, it's better bang for buck, but not good enough for hdr content creation.
    There's a reason sony oled monitors have been widely used for reference, for film and live coverage.

    You think that's under rated... check this out. Same display tech, same manufacturer(yes, LG owns the patent and has the only known assembly lines for producing these Oxide TFT displays), slightly higher pixel density, virtually identical specs, it's... the same display in a 27 inch. It also comes with it's own stand, and you can get THREE of them for the price of their larger brother. It's essentially the same ips pixel pitch, brightness, HDR specification, refresh rate, I mean, it's quite literally the same monitor. I will say though, the top bezel on the LG branded LG monitor are a bit thicker than on the Apple branded LG monitor... That could be a make or break for someone I guess.

    Nice to see HDR starting to get up on its (expensive) legs. Only the size is disappointing. It shouldn't take very long for people to realize that 31" is an undersized monitor. Why restrict yourself? The truth is that I can see more detail, more information on my 39.5" 4K display than I would on this 6K display because I don't have my face up on the monitor at tablet distance, and the eye can't make up that much detail. It's a waste of pixels, they would be more useful spread over a larger area.

  • eazon
    eazon 2 months ago

    I actually think Apple is just being honest about it up front about the price for the stand. Think about it, if Apple didn't say anything about the price of that stand and just priced the Pro Display with it at $6000, and then sells a pro display with the Vesa mount for $5000. People can do the math and know that the stand actually cost $1000. And at that point Apple will get way worst criticism for it. So in the end of the day I think Apple is just being honest and upfront about it. It is expensive but at lease they told you that's the cost and that's what we are charing and why its wroth that price.

    Apple makes those arguments from a marketing perspective. Of course relative to a $40,000 OLED Reference Monitor the XDR Display might look like a bargain. Apple Display should be compared to a comparable MiniLED Display. The Asus ProArt PA32UCG fits the bill, but its not yet available. I don't think it will be as expensive as Apples Display though.


    You're a slave to apple.

    Just a side note: Apple Pro Display XDR is not an HDR certified device:
    And those monitors you compare Apple Pro Display XDR are the professional tools with the toolset to very precisely represent information in various formats, and Apple Pro Display XDR is not a professional, but a consumer product.

    Its an amazing monitor.. but I have to suggest a monitor for the new Mac pro Make one like it for the more simple pro use like using a DAW you don't need a super monitor like that but it would be nice if they can sell a beautiful monitor like that for the non video editor and graphics design but for audio engineers we don't need a monitor like that.. but it would be nice to have a simular monitor looking option that is more consumer level but at the highest like 4K instead of 6K
    that would be nice

  • Ronald Reagan
    Ronald Reagan 3 months ago +2

    Which further brings up the question as to why they didn't just bundle the stand (I don't think it works with any other display) and raise the price by a thousand dollars. The stand is perhaps one of Apple's worst business decisions in a long time.

    • Dirk Knight
      Dirk Knight 3 months ago

      @Ronald Reagan I don't want to buy such a small display at such a tall price to begin with, stand or no stand. Apple's strategy here is crazy. I don't even see this as a serious product, more like an "In your face, consumer!" kind of play. It belongs into the "$1000 hamburger" category.

    Second your comparison with the red camera and it's things: you can use it to record a movie, you videos on youtube, film maker etc
    Tell me how you can use apple display rather than watching it only and it coast 7000 $ with the stand!!
    1000 for stand!!
