Product Snapshot

Overview

The Apple Pro Display XDR is a high-end 2020 display that pledges to deliver best-in-class color accuracy, deep blacks thanks to Full Array Local Dimming, and excellent peak brightness for both SDR and HDR content. Also, the display’s near-complete coverage of the sRGB, Adobe RGB, and DCI-P3 color gamut makes it a perfect fit for the high-end photo and video production. With the option to get the screen version that is fitted with a nano texture cover glass, users who can’t control the lighting in their environment will benefit significantly from the reduced glare and reflectivity. Those who will need to switch between portrait and landscape mode constantly will also appreciate the flexibility offered by its Pro Stand – options that make the Apple Pro Display a lot more versatile than the Sony BVM-HX310. Make sure you get to the end of this Apple Pro Display XDR review to see how it compares to the top-rated computer monitors available.

Consensus

our Verdict

Unfortunately, gamers may not be as pleased due to the input lag and lack of G-Sync/FreeSync support.
