Rating: 5/5 Love it May 8, 2022 It's working perfectly! I'm happy that one of the best monitors ever made can still be used with the latest MacBook Pro M1 Max with the use of a USB-C to Thunderbolt 2 dongle.

Rating: 1/5 Unusable: a 27” doorstop December 2, 2021 It came with the stand disconnected and the connection retracted into the body of the monitor. There were NO instructions and it turns out that the ONLY WAY to attach the stand is to take the monitor apart. It should be should be shipped assembled and ready to use, but nowhere in the on-line sales listing does it say it is a kit requiring expert assembly! Unacceptable at best.

Response from OWC, Support December 3, 2021 Hello Larry, this is certainly not a normal situation as our displays should be shipped as completed units, please get some photos of the display and and send them to support@owc.com along with a reference to Case: 01323618 we'll get this corrected for you!

Rating: 5/5 As Advertised October 28, 2021 When I saw that this was a pre owned product I thought that it was going to have some type of scratch and/or dents. I'm pleased to say that it didn't have anything of the kind. The shipping was very meticulous and protective; everything functions properly on it. I'm pleased with my purchase.

Rating: 5/5 So happy to get another Apple Thunderbolt Display!!! October 11, 2021 I purchased an Apple Thunderbolt Display directly from Apple in May of 2016 when my husband & I switched from PCs to Macs. My first Mac was a Mac Book Pro so I needed a large 27" display. A short time later, I heard that Apple had quit manufacturing displays. Forward to Sept 2021 and my husband's iMac was ailing. We decided to purchase a refurbished Mac Book Pro for him, but where to find a display like mine. I couldn't believe when i found that MacSales still sold them, albeit refurbished, so ordered it the same night as I purchased the new MacBook Pro from Apple. The display arrived in just 2 days and was perfect. It has a little ding on the back, but who's looking at the back. It works perfectly. It came well packaged and with the power and thunderbolt cable. Thank you Thank you!

Rating: 1/5 Incapable of answering my immediate questions September 23, 2021 I’m a senior with disabilities who specifically requested crucial support with cabling, before delivery. It didn’t happen until we’ll after product was delivered, and initially responded as if I’d purchased other stuff entirely wasting my time repeating myself. I never would have purchased this, and would have refused delivery — if I’d known it was ten years old and not directly compatible with the Mac Mini I purchased. Unlikely I’ll ever trust your company again.

Response from OWC, Support September 24, 2021 I do apologize for the situation, taking a look at the product page it does mention in the title after the model MC914LL/A (Mid 2011). Unfortunately this would not be compatible unless you were to use an Apple Thunderbolt 2 to Thunderbolt 3 adapter with it. If you need further assistance with this transaction we would be happy to assist you at support@owc.com.

Rating: 4/5 Great display July 4, 2020 Considering this display is 9 years old with only a few nicks and scratches, it performs like new. Colors and graphics are sharp and I really like the ports on the back for connecting accessories. Quite impressed!

Rating: 5/5 Like new ... perfect display April 16, 2020 My 27-inch Thunderbolt display arrived today ... packed great, and although it was rated as very good condition, other than a slight scratch on the back of the stand, it looks like new! Loved that it was so easy to set-up, i.e., plug it in to power, plug in the thunderbolt cable into the 2012 Mac Mini that I recently purchased from OWC and everything came up great! Wonderful addition to the desktop work space!! Lastly, very nice integrated camera, speakers, and additional USBs, etc. ... awesome. Highly recommended to family and friends, especially liking the $$$ savings over buying a new Mac Mini and Apple Display ... this set-up is waaaay less expensive, and for me, the performance of a fully loaded core i7 2012 Mac Mini with Thunderbolt display is every bit as good as the latest system & monitor, but at 1/3rd of the price. Thanks OWC.
