Great product ... except I can't get the sound to work.
I bought this for a MacBook Air. In addition to performance., my criteria were VDI input, energy efficiency, adjustability, and a metallic appearance to with the Mac.
It has met my criteria, it looks good. works well, and is quick to warm up so in addition to being low-energy, I only switch it on when I need the extra screen space.
A couple of niggles:
1. try as I can I can't get the sound to work. This is a pity as the speakers on the MacBook Air are weak
2. The USB hub does not work unless the screen is switched on.
Next time I would have saved money (and probably energy) by buying the model without PowerSensor, as the screen shuts down anyway when the screen on the host computer goes to sleep. Having got used to the larger screen, I would also have bought the 24" or possibly even the 27" model.
