    I am loving my new LED cinema display - except, I notice a very slight odor of "warm electronics" when it's on. The case certainly gets quite hot - about as warm as my MBP, really.

    Is this normal?

    Mine gave off a strong new Apple product smell on the first day but thats it. Been checking for heat also and I'm not getting any here.

    Its New. All Electronics have some smell to them when they are new. By next week you won't smell anything and be looking for something else to buy to get that smell back.

    Just kidding I'm sure the smell will go away in a few days.

    If it is ozone your smelling that is not good. That means something is running hot enough to burn.

    I like the smell of Ozone, but it means melting electronics.

    Sorry to bump this, but mine has this same smell after a good 3 weeks of use. Anyone else's persist this long? I'm a bit paranoid after the reports of toxic Mac Pros, hehe.
