      Absolutely stunning display quality at a great price - but ONLY USB-C

      First of all, this is quite possibly the best 4K display I have seen in terms of color accuracy and detail. The display finish is similar to Apple's latest MacB First of all, this is quite possibly the best 4K display I have seen in terms of color accuracy and detail. The display finish is similar to Apple's latest MacBook Pros - clear, glossy but very little reflectance - the best of both worlds. Connected to my 2016 MacBook Pro with its native USB-C connector, the display is stunning. Another surprise? The built-in speakers on this monitor are amazingly clear, loud, and good quality, unlike most monitors. You can even feel the bass (to some extent - don't expect miracles). Now for the downside for all who had *hoped* they could connect this to older Macs with adapters. You can't. The specifications are very clear - this monitor requires a Mac with a native USB-C connector. Apple's Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter doesn't provide DisplayPort pass through. And third party USB-C to DisplayPort 1.2 connectors don't handle the 4096x2304 resolution of this monitor. The monitor is simply not recognized by older Macs.

      Problems connecting two LG Ultrafines with new 15 inch MacBook Pro

      Connecting two of these LG Ultrafines with a new MacBook Pro 15 inch, there are a few major problems: 1) the MacBook will not charge when the two monitors are Connecting two of these LG Ultrafines with a new MacBook Pro 15 inch, there are a few major problems: 1) the MacBook will not charge when the two monitors are connected - it only charges after unplugging and replugging in the monitors a few times 2) only one of the monitors wakes up when the MacBook wakes from sleep - only by unplugging and replugging does the second monitor reconnect. It also appears that the MacBook will not charge via the Thunder bolt cable if the USB-C hub is being used for other peripherals (e.g., charging my iPhone). Considering that Apple unveiled the new MacBook Pro, showcasing a setup with two external LG Ultrafines, it's pretty disappointing that these basic functions don't work seamlessly. When you also consider there very high price for these items, it's not really acceptable. The monitors are beautiful (when they are working) - but I'm waiting to see if Apple fixes these issues fast - otherwise the monitors get returned. Apple Support don't know anything about the problem because it's too new.

      Too many problems w/ MacBook

      Bought this for my wife to connect to her late 2016 retina MacBook. The monitor itself looks beautiful and strikes a good balance of size and pixel density. A Bought this for my wife to connect to her late 2016 retina MacBook. The monitor itself looks beautiful and strikes a good balance of size and pixel density. Also I love how the monitor charges the MacBook with a single cable. Problem is, as many other users have noted, I have an issue where the screen flashes black (goes off and on), which happens once every 3 minutes or so, which is enough to be super annoying. No amount of support or troubleshooting has led to any solutions here. It's very frustrating since both the macbook and monitor are brand new and are advertised to work together. Another thing is that, contrary to a couple of reviews here, with the latest OS X there doesn't seem to be an option to run the monitor in 4k at 60 Hz (have to use 30 Hz which looks very laggy).

      Worst Apple endorsed product since the Motorola Rokr

      How do you get USB 3.0 speeds at all with a Macbook and this display? It is not possible to use the display combined with the USB-C Digital AV Multiport Ada How do you get USB 3.0 speeds at all with a Macbook and this display? It is not possible to use the display combined with the USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter to get a USB A 3.0 connection. The display is just dark. You cant connect your Macbook to the display with any other USB-C cable than the black one provided in the box?? Apple ones leave the display black. The USB C connectors on the back of the display seems to have such very low power output that they barely can drive my Happy Hacking Keyboard, I get warnings. There is no FaceTime camera on the 4K one, I expected that. Speakers and screen are ok, but the display is a compatibility nightmare.

      Stability Issues with MacBook Pro 15" w/Touch Bar

      The display looks great, but I had SOO many issues with the display. It caused my MacBook Pro to crash repeatedly, especially when waking from sleep. Even kerne The display looks great, but I had SOO many issues with the display. It caused my MacBook Pro to crash repeatedly, especially when waking from sleep. Even kernel panics. The 10.12.2 update did help some, but my apps would still crash several times a day. I believe it even caused a corruption issue when copying data from my old MacBook Pro via target disk mode (over Thunderbolt using Thunderbolt 2 to 3 adapter). It corrupted both volumes on the old machine when it went to sleep overnight and I lost ALL my data. Weeks later, I'm still recovering from various backups. It has caused many headaches. Called Apple Support and they couldn't really help but suggested I try the MacBook Pro without the monitor, and sure enough, all my crashes went away. Returned it and got the LG UltraFine 5k. Works like a charm! Day 2, zero crashes or sleep issues! Presumably because it uses Thunderbolt and not USB-C. Seems like Apple has some bugs to work out (or maybe it was an issue with the display itself or the cable). If you have a MacBook Pro, get the 5k instead. Also keep in mind that the 4k can't charge your 15" Pro (only provides 60 watts vs 85) and has slow USB 2 ports, plus no camera or mic. If you are used to Apple displays, don't expect the industrial design to be nearly as nice. Both monitors wobble when I type and just don't look as good as Apple's Thunderbolt display did. But the panel itself is INCREDIBLE. Hope I helped.
