Joanna Stern: Apple’s $1,599 Studio Display vs. Other Monitors: You Won’t Get What You Pay For


"Even if you aren’t a sharp-eyed professional, you will notice one big difference when these monitors are on your desk. The LG models come default with height-adjustable stands. Apple’s basic stand allows you to tilt the screen, but if you want it to tilt and move up and down, like you’re some pampered royal, that will cost an extra $400. Or you could just put that fancy new $1,600 monitor on a stack of old books. Your choice."
