The Apple Pro Display XDR is a high-end monitor with a premium price, ideal for professionals engaged in HDR video editing, digital photo editing, and color-critical tasks due to its excellent color accuracy and wide color gamuts. With a large screen and high resolution, it provides outstanding image clarity and detail, making it also suitable for productivity and media consumption. However, it's not tailored for gaming, as its refresh rate is low and it lacks variable refresh rate (VRR) support, leading to subpar performance for both casual and competitive gaming. This display stands out for tasks that prioritize color precision and image quality, rather than gaming or activities that require fast response times. Give Feedback

PC Mag

Chris Stobing | February 2020
"Apple's Pro Display XDR provides exceptional color accuracy and build quality at a price that's quite competitive with those of reference-grade pro monitors. It's exquisite enough that swallowing the wildly extravagant cost of its Pro Stand is worth it."
