I'm a very happy studio display owner, but I sometimes feel uneasy about it getting regular software updates on the iOS release cadence. Seems like more opportunity for things to get worse compared to just having built-in firmware that only gets upgraded for urgent bug fixes.

I bought one the day it came out, it’s on 24/7. Not one problem….none. I don’t know why others have so many issues. I don’t see a problem with the price. There are few displays made this well IMO. Cheap displays are cheap. Made of plastic and sometimes have wobbly bases. Nothing wrong with a cheap display and there are lots of quality panels….it’s the plastic that sucks. This is just a nice clean setup. Apple displays are always expensive but last a long long time. Still have first gen Cinema Displays that works great.

Or we need to make more money. A lot more ?

I feel you. With this inflation, in some countries prices are beyond insane.
Barely would afford US prices (+taxes) but in EUR..... pfff ... it's mental

I hope they upgrade it soon. Optimizing the webcam for Center Stage was a mistake. For this kind of money, the display needs a *great* webcam and not a mediocre one.
