    Can you compare XDR to Asus PA32UC? It has double the Local dimming zones so it should have less blooming, right?

    • Ata Seddigh Mohammadi

      PA32UCG is also 120hz with 1600 nits of peak brightness and pre HDR-1400 certified.

    I heard Apple updated Catalina 10.15.2 with a Larger UI for the Pro Display, due to the crazy high resolution, on such a small screen.
    Do you know of any way of activating the Larger UI on an iMac running @ 5K?
    ie. If I plug in a Pro Display into the TB3 port, will take give me the larger UI option for both screens or just for the Pro Display?
    Will that work with any USB-C/TB3 monitor?
    Please Help, thanks.

    Looks ridiculous without the stand. You spent $10k on this hardware and still didn’t get the stand?

    • Sam Geurdi
      Sam Geurdi 3 months ago

      MD haha people complain why they are buying a 1k stand and you’re complaining why he is not buying it. What a world. Probably a delay in shipping or maybe not LOL

    This display is not good for monitoring, it has a contrast shift when you change your angle of view, this shows a lack of precision in color rendition, it does not happen on Eizo, Flanders, Sony or Canon monitors. If you need an entry level true precision monitoring screen, go with the Eizo, they are cheaper and way better. And don't forget to plug it to an external video card and not directly to the GPU otherwise it won't be precise enough.

      It might not run with full resolution with other PCs.

      look up the connectors. Its coming with thunderbolt 3 cable here. Either you will need an adapter, or check if the monitor has other connectors.

    If you want to watch movies in such quality, but for 1/4 of the price, just get yourself the latest LG OLED TV.

    Thanks for the overview of this excellent, out of my price range, display. I wouldn't call it overpriced for what it offers; just out of my league.
    A small critique: All of the motion and panning in these video clips are very choppy with lots of stuttering. I highly recommend viewing Gerald Undone's "Mixing Frame Rates" ( ru-clip.net/video/qAVfIQ2G7Io/video.html ) video which goes into very informative detail about how to mix and match 24p/30p/60p video capture for smooth pans on a timeline destined for people with mostly 60hz monitors. I found it so educational.

    Really like to know how it is to work with, in comparison to say LG Ultrafine 5k or just iMac Pro screen... contrast, blooming, backlight, how are the edges - darker? What are the imperfections from the screen it self? Enough tech sheet videos and how it powers on... we want details on usage (photography, video creation etc.). Also can you use it on a PC with Titan Ridge Thunderbolt 3, in full 6k?

    I love how it looks when its just sitting on the desk, I hope you're not relying on the thickness of it to keep it standing though.

    Dolby Vision is not a better version of HDR, it is just a propietary implementation of the standard.

    Can you please get a real display expert to review this. Is it really as good as a reference monitor from Sony?

    • Xperience Pureness

      As good as Sony? HELL NO
      watch this video you'll see that apple pro display is just regular full array local dimming ips display with apple logo on it.

    The display is thick and heavy enough that a stand is not necessary? 👍

    The rest of the planet can’t afford a 25k to 53k computer. 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎

    • Ross B2
      Ross B2 3 months ago

      25k mimimum spec, are you sure? I thought the base spec was way less. Remember that the 53k top spec is equivalent on other brands. Its not like most of the planet need 23 core PCs.

      @Patricio Benavente If I compare a subaru to a Ferrari it also is quite cheap.

    • Patricio Benavente
      Patricio Benavente 3 months ago

      Same thing happen with mac pro. It looks quite expensive but if you compare it with other computers with the same spec then it is in the same range. For me even the 6k base model is very expensive. But maybe for a studio a top 56k computer is worth the money

    • Patricio Benavente
      Patricio Benavente 3 months ago

      earlbee31 it depends. If you compare it with a reference monitor (they are around 40k) then it's quite cheap. If you think it's too pricey then it's not for you. It is meant for top pros.
