I find it hard to imagine a more satisfactory monitor than this one in many regards. The video remains easily the best I've ever seen, the extra ports are very useful indeed to a Mac Mini user (like me), and the metal-and-glass construction is a delight to see and touch. Apple, however, claims that the built-in speakers offer "immersive, full-range sound". This is an exaggeration to say the least. I'd describe the speakers as being "decent". There's little bass, and all in all the system sounds cheap and thin compared to many other speaker systems I've used. One of my main goals in buying this display was to cut clutter by using the built-in speakers. This simply hasn't worked out. For a grand, it should've.
