AppleInsider has written an in depth review of Apple's New LED Cinema Display

Apple's first major update to the Cinema Display line brings a much greener design and a raft of welcome feature updates, especially for MacBook owners. At the same time, a partial shift away from Apple's mainstay professional crowd makes one wonder where the company is going and whether it hasn't lost focus.

The review covers:
- A brief history of the Cinema Display
- Design: evolution over revolution
- Image quality and the gloss factor
- The speakers, the webcam and the USB hub
- Power and controls; or rather, the lack thereof
- A word on DisplayPort and copy protection
- The LED Cinema Display in summary

Concluding a 5 page review AppleInsider gives the display a rating of 3.5 out of 5 saying,
From a purely technical standpoint, we like it. The picture is vivid, the sound is great for the class, and the design is both eye-catching and at times handy. We just hope that more Macs and Windows PCs can recognize Mini DisplayPort and that Apple doesn't end up sacrificing a large chunk of its display sales to high-end customers in the name of those few mainstream buyers who can spend the money Apple would like.
