My first impression of the LG was pretty positive.

For someone who works with video all the time or with photos, editing, it's kind of nice to have.

Colors are popping, saturation is the number one word that comes to mind.

So you have the thunderbolt 3. So you can charge the laptop over single cable which gets you extra usb-c port on the monitor.

So picture quality is A+.

UltraFine looks awesome. It is just awesome.

      Could be great, but is not right now.

      Apple products used to just work, that was the beauty of them, No fussing around, no complicated configuration, they just worked. I cannot believe that Apple Apple products used to just work, that was the beauty of them, No fussing around, no complicated configuration, they just worked. I cannot believe that Apple are selling a product on their own online store that has some basic flaws. This appears to be happening more and more and as much as I want to love this, I can't right now. I have invested a lot of money in a new MBP 2016 15inch and this LG 5K display. The number one problem is that the display does not wake up from sleep when it is connected to my MBP (and the MBP is in closed lid mode/clamshell). So in order to wake it I have to remove my MBP from it's vertical dock, open the lid of the laptop and wake it up using it's own trackpad or keyboard. BUT....that does not work either!!! The thing just crashes! Completely unresponsive. So I have to hard reboot the MBP. This is not acceptable LG/Apple. Yes this can probably be fixed with a software update, but why does this basic function not work out of the box. Just on that principle I will be returning mine and waiting till someone else comes up with a solution that just works.

      Update, if possible needed.

      I don't care about design I need it functional and easy. Using just one cable is the best best solution for me. The displays resolution is amazing, the size bri I don't care about design I need it functional and easy. Using just one cable is the best best solution for me. The displays resolution is amazing, the size brightness and clearness is stunning. But the functional issues are with a lot of problems. Example: The display has 3 USB-C ports on it's back. My configuration is one is using 4-Port USB 3 Anker Hub and one is using Belkin Ethernet adapter. If I reconnect the Macbook 15" to the display, both adapter don't wake up. as long as you reconnect each dongle on display's back again. That's not comfortable. Even the sound is just average but better than nothing
