When Linus pulled the cable... oddly satisfying.
More satisfying when it clicked back in
@felix sommer Thanks
Apple always gives me a good feeling when they launch a new product. This time Apple made me feel AWESOME about my LG 5K Ultra-fine. Thank you Apple, I am now $3K richer cos I don’t have to buy this P.O.S.
@M I disagree. The price is 5x higher than the so called improvements justify.
The LG Ultrafine 5K is worse than the Studio display in literally every single category, and is also ugly as sin.. but uh..ok.
@CamelSmokes23 Bro i have 2 AOC monitors since 2010.... No dead pixels, always on.
@Serenity Project Aha, straight to personal attacks. Insecure much?
@FADHsquared I'm surprised you managed to type that with THE MASSIVE DENT IN YOUR SKULL.
The "Wow" feeling with Apple before, was, "wow, wonderful easy to use versatile tech". The "wow" then became: "wow, really expensive". Now, the "wow" feeling: "wow, frankly stupid". Sad.
@Ryan Clouse thank you for proving my point, i couldn't have hoped for a better example especially when you bring "coding" as something a mac is good at. Now shush, i'm busy laughing at you.
@Gomam0n That is a very narrow, and terribly high horse view. Just because you don't see the value in it doesn't mean others don't. I own both mac and windows devices and there are certainly advantages. The m1 has built in video encoders, and punches above its weight for viewport performances, and draws little power in comparison to offerings from amd/intel. They also do have software that is only available on mac so some are also limited to that. Also you mention that it is only "stupid" creatives that are buying them is incorrect. The new macbooks are also highly recommended for coding. Please do your research and keep your biases in check before you start insulting people for no apparent reason. Thank you.
We literally need a compilation of everyone's reactions to the built in cable
@Martin Ottosson Many, I have 3 cats and they have chewed through alot of cables. Luckily I don't use apple products with fixed cables, I can go on amazon and just buy a new cable.
@Martin Ottosson of course you are not an Apple fanboy since you suggested "simply" cutting / patching a damaged cable if necessary. nevertheless, Apple managed to use common power cables for all their iMacs in the last 12 years or so, most of my clients didn't even realize they can be unplugged from the case, so losing them was not an issue. Happened only once, imagine the horror when I replaced it with black standard cable...
@Martin Ottosson for one, it makes transporting it harder, you have to deal with a dangling thing when on any sensible monitor you'd put it in your pocket or a bag. and in the event it does get damaged, however unlikely it might be, you should have the option to replace it. it is actually removable, just not by consumers. there's zero reason for this, and all you're doing is justifying an awful user experience with "you weren't using it anyways".
@Sinus Lebastian I don't own a single Apple product and never have. I use an iPhone because I have to at work but I prefer Android by a margin. So I am as far from a fanboy as you can be. Comment here when you brake your monitor cable the next time so hear you in a million years or so.
@Martin Ottosson I agree with you.
Any cord can be removable if you pull hard enough
It can be easily removed with a special tool.
Some of them only once...🤣🤣🤣
@Mr Artistimo I'm not saying you aren't. I just find it especially dumb that the plug is functionally perfectly OK to be removed, in terms of connection, but intentionally engineered to be impossible to do so without damaging the system. It's the worst of both worlds, in essence.
@The River Acis ...As far as I remember I was also on the side of this being a dumbass decision from Apple from a consumer point of view.
What really gets me is the cable isnt even hardwired, it can be pulled out and replaced. This is apple being apple thinking people are just gonna toss out a monitor that is already overpriced and buy another overpriced monitor to replace it and some will. What will happen is A. most people will avoid it or B. amazon will start offering replacement kits with tool to pull the cable out.
The people who buy Apple products are the type to throw away the monitor and buy a new one. Not because they are all rich but because they're stupid
"most people will avoid it" I hope so, but I don't expect it. Just look at all the bs devices people buy from apple
As w/ the LG Ultrafine displays, the single input is a non-starter, especially at this price. And a hard-wired power cable? Wow.
This was, obviously, supposed to be the redesigned 27" iMac. Apple must've changed direction halfway through designing this thing.
I think sort of standalone appletv / FaceTime device failed there, or coming later.
I love the drop in shots where numerous other staff members are disgusted with that hard-wired cable. It's such an obvious deal breaker, I have no idea how it got implemented.
@BlueB1C2 you transport your desktop display all the time? Tripping over the cord will bring any display to the ground anyway, that thing is removable, but it ain't loose
@Miguel I do it all the time for transport and cable management. Also if someone trips on the cord you'd want it to come out instead of wangling the whole monitor off your desk.
@Miguel No I agree, a monitor power cable doesn’t get damaged very often. But there was just no reason for this monitor to have a power cable that isn’t supposed to come off. It’s just dumb
@Sammy Johnson when did you last see a power cord (that plugs in the mains) broken? People will break it from stupidly pulling it just to prove a point. Otherwise it just doesn't happen. Plus if it does, it's the easiest thing in the world to repair at home.
@Miguel The issue is that since it isn’t “supposed” to be removed, that if the cable is ruined or broken for whatever reason, the whole monitor has to be sent in instead of just getting another cable
It's honestly A LOT smaller than I thought it'd be for that insane price.
Is it an insane price? Compared to what? Ok, let's play. Find me ONE other monitor that meets the below, at any price: - Built with glass and aluminum, not plastic trash - Has thunderbolt 4 and 3 USB-C connections - Has built in speakers which sound pretty incredible - Has 3 built in mics and a webcam - Has 5K resolution I'll be waiting.
This is how it got implemented: irglo.info/from/m8-knoOjkpvcZ2g/fy-lm-h-y.html
"Ex-Apple engineer talks about the Studio Display". Engineer: Tim Cook said, "I've got an idea, let's make the power cord irremovable." (hits the desk) Aaaaaa..... Host: Imbecile.
As a man who unboxes a ton of monitors in the course of business, I want every single monitor manufacturer to box them up like apple does. God that would be delightful.
Then you'd be paying apple prices for everything lol
Definitely not delightful for the environment.
As Linus brought up in the WAN show... engineers spent TIME to design that unremovable cable. It took MORE EFFORT to make it hardwired than it would have to go with an existing normal removable cable. These people went out of their way to give their customers the middle finger and take their money for what shouldnt even be a repair, but just a cable replacement.
@arjunyg Yeah, I don't quite understand the frustration with the non-detachable power cable. Sure, not having 120hz or HDR sucks ass in 2022 and those complaint are justified but people are actually upset about the power cable not being removable? Out of the 7ish monitors i've owned in my entire life, I have never once had any issue with any of the cables breaking. I agree with your reasoning though. Monitors are typically stationary, not like laptops. I mean you set it up and forget it unless you need to adjust the tilt/angle. Or at "worse" move it to an entirely new location but that happens how often? I agree that this monitor is overpriced but you guys are reaching.
@91795jc I think my point is that there is absolutely no realistic probability that I am going to need to repair a monitor power cable. These things are very strong, and rarely stressed, since the monitor is largely stationary, compared to something like a phone or laptop. Their approach was probably “build the cable to last the product lifetime, and we don’t have to worry about expensive magsafe engineering, and we save everyone money.”
@arjunyg Yes, definitely, it would have to be an external power supply. Magsafe would be perfect for this. They could even (quite easily) make it compatible with an iMac PS brick. External PS would also lessen the thermal load. If they really wanted that built-it PSU, I'm surprised they didn't create a proprietary mains cable with a more shallow contact, them being Apple and all. They could sell it separately at a ludicrous price and people would buy it, but I guess they expect to receive more from repairs.
@91795jc magsafe would fit, but a standard C13 definitely wouldn’t.
@arjunyg If its thick enough for USB-C, it's thick enough for a removable power cable.
it never ceases to amaze me how apple keeps fooling idiots into buying overpriced crap
Not gonna lie, this was one of the most entertaining Short Circuit videos in recent memory, with Anthony just tearing Apple apart
The funniest thing about the cable is they engineered a proprietary connector and then made the plug non user removable. This is so they can attach cords for different regions as needed at time of manufacturing. Apple understands the benefit of modular design but actively chooses not to pass those benefits on to its customers.
There is pretty much zero "benefit" to having the power cable on the Studio Display removable, for like 99.9% of users. If it makes manufacturing more efficient, then I can see why they made that decision as nobody really cares, except clickbait videos like this one fishing for views and outrage.
And yet everyone acts surprised, as if that hasn't been Apple's MO for literal decades now.
@Teth47 Correction, that was eMachines with the famous never obsolete sticker.
@Phi-Long Nguyen let's be real. They're going to have no problems meeting demand for this PoS.
@Real It never happened to me, therefor no argument. Uhhhhhhhh. Found the apple fan boy.
I forgot how much I enjoyed listening to this man talk about technology.
I could never justify paying $1,600 for this display. Never in a million years
Amazing idea, putting iOS in the monitor. So now you have to update the monitor regularly as well. I think more devices should have an OS that needs regular updates.
I’m an Apple fan and even I have to say that they dropped the ball with this display. They should have added proper HDR support and a higher refresh rate. That power cord should be user removable (maybe magnetic like they did on the iMac) and the height adjustment upgrade should be much cheaper. Come on Apple, you are better than this!
@David Ribeiro were never*
It was so simple to not have any controversy, all they had to do was to put MagSafe like in the m1 iMac, and the same arm system as in the ProDisplay XDR
Just make it removable don't even need a magsafe because it's a stationary device
@Rahel Wijeyekoon still not that different, it's just round and carries also network, meh a few extra pins. the imacs use a power charger if i'm not mistaken. i don't think magsafe can be used in mains voltage, too dangerous, it's for low voltage ~20v.
@illGottenGains Post Steve Jobs Apple has been progressing and regressing technology!! Some features should be left in the 2000’s and never revised!
@gior nikitop Not the MBP magsafe; I mean the magsafe in the new M1 iMacs. They specifically made a new and fancy magnetic connector designed to be low profile for a thin computer/monitor, and then chose not to use it in their new monitor.
@HEXAGON MAGNETICS yeah I’m sure the power cord was the dealbreaker for a lot of these ‘potential customers’. No they just found something to get offended by, it is 2022 after all.
I believe A13 was included in order to control over 2,000 mini LED backlights, but Apple could not put mini LED at the last moment.
Anthony is the vibe that everyone who works in IT feels after exactly 10 years in the industry.
Thank you for the video! I love all of your tech videos and, with Apple's new Studio Monitor, there was a more affordable (but still offered a lot of great features like thunderbolt and resolution) monitor for graphic designers? I don't need a gaming monitor, but something with similar resolution as my 2021 MacBook Pro. Thanks!
I love how in a lot of Apple videos Linus media produces the packaging is generally the most positive thing they have to say about them 😂😂😂
This is what happens when you give too much power to one company😂
@geebster Yeah, it's way to thin, using it with adult hands for long periods is just asking for carpal tunnel.
@DRIS the bottom of the mouse is still the worst possible place they could have put the port. Linus isnt the only person who has complained about that. Also the ergonomics of that mouse are horrible. It's designed with only looks in mind and not function at all (I had one so this isnt just from watching reviews). There are far better mice out there for less money.
Imagine walking in to the apple store holding it and your like: so my cat ruined my cable, here you go can I get a new display 😂😂😂. Like what. I'm 20 years old and I've used computers from windows 98 days till now and I've never once had a monitor with unremovable power cord. The funny the is apple engineers had to design this from scratch. Apple went out of there way to fuck there customers over. I'm so glad I switched before I had an apple eco
Apple Cinema HD 30" had firewire,usb,dual link dvi, and power all in one hardwired dongle... was a nightmare. I think it's msrp was like 3k too lol.
Every time Apple releases something I'm reminded of how glad I am to NOT own anything made by Apple.
I quit giving money to Apple. Thank you for the video and for confirming my beliefs.
Thank you guys! There is a HUGE issue with how this s**t has been reviewed so far - they are trying to move it as passable, which is plain ridiculous. No HDR, the most idiotic non-removable cable, unutilized chip (where is FaceID???), no variable refresh rate, moron approach towards stands and mounts and they charge 1400+ for this crap. Tech journalist must hold Apple accountable for such excuse of a product, otherwise they will keep pulling this over and over again. The audacity of them calling it 'accesible' is beyond me - it's a pure money trap for the less tech savy users. Verge gave it 6 out of 10 even though they mentioned it's old ass backlight technology - 6 out of 10 doesn't do justice for such prefatory tactics towards their consumers. To replace your cable, you will ship the whole thing to Apple Care, for which you pay of course, and not be able to use your product whole it's getting 'fixed'. There is a power cable standard for monitors that's being used for years, they didn't had to ducking reinvent the wheel, heck, use the magsafe if you wanna blood suck more cash. Apple needs to be held under the same standard, as other brands, for what they release and media should remind them that. You guys, are the single best review of this display so far and I'm 99% sure it will remain that way. Thank you Andy and all else behind camera for doing the right thing, instead of eating the rotten Apples.
Just don’t buy it…
MKBHD's review is same as Linus Tech Tips'. He doesn't recommend this shit. Not the case of the others that even claim that it's awesome.
Why would you actually need iPadOS and face id on a display?? Every new Magic Keyboard model features touch id. Ridiculous rant about the A13 Bionic
"You don't bite the hand that feeds you".
Always loved Apple products but they give me more and more arguments not to upgrade my current products
"Excuse me, I need you to design a display in a way that hands over all business to LG and other companies in every way you can." Apple: SAY NO MORE
So strange, you'd expect the product designed to have a great screen, great speakers, and camera would be better than the laptop; but no.
Imagine the shock and suprise that Apple made lessor product, and charged more for it, and still people will line up to buy it.
I love how everyone stopped by just to hate on apple's decision to make a HARDWIRED power cable
@B5152 ah sorry read that from the other view point
@Lawrence James I am pointing out the reason that "it should be removable" not that it shouldn't..
@B5152 and how is that a reason to make something non removable you can burn down your house with a stove or microwave yet we still have them and anyone can use them
@Retrogame Puppy clown
@Retrogame Puppy Hello??? Where are you now? lol
“This is unacceptable” 👏 Well said, on so many design choices. I hate how the Display connector is just a thunderbolt cable on the back side, not centrally located and tidy. Most photos hide the cable connecting to the Mac, same as they hide the notch on iPhone. Jobs would have never let this pass.
In a world where war rages, this man makes me laugh. Antony is one hell of a tech guy. Just love his videos.
I am starting to suspect that Apple puts more effort into designing their boxes than their products.
Hope Apple someday starts using their chip to image processing and actually make a TV to heat the competition. 😍 They already improved regular OLED with their XDR Displays. xd
I just love the reactions 🤦♂️ he makes everytime he finds a annoying feature or fault lol.
