    Flashes Black

    • Written by Travis K from Vancouver

    This monitor constantly flashes off and on again.
    It's totally random.
    The "support" process from LG is awful... I have to put the monitor in a box and send it to a factory somewhere in Ontario.

    I'm giving this a 2 only because the image quality is good.

    Great Quality - Excessive Backlight Bleed for dark rooms

    • Written by Kianoosh M from Burnaby

    Image quality is Great! I compared this monitor with more than 5 high-end monitors, this one has the best image quality and sharpness - but unfortunately, I experienced a very noticeable, annoying excessive backlight bleed (and IPS glow) which is not acceptable for high-end monitors with that price tag; so I returned after 1 day! If price drops I can ignore the backlight bleed and buy it again, If not, LG or Apple should make sure that they value customers and fix the problem (upgrade) or change their quality control standards for pricy items.

    What's wrong with this screen?!?!?

    • Written by Andrei N from London

    The first thing i noticed after powering up my new 5k UltraFine is that there's a panel issue.

    Especially easy to see on any uniform colour on screen (white, grey, etc) - there are weird vertical patterns forming. Another user (Fedor V from Oakland) also described a shimmering effect which I think is probably what I'm also experiencing.

    Working as a designer this is a deal breaker.

    I exchanged the first monitor for another new one and that also exhibits the same problem.

    Also checked the model on display in the Apple Store and that one had this issue too. So I'm guessing this is a new issue for this "updated" model.

    So sad I have to return it now again - knowing that this entire "crop" of monitors is compromised. Really Hope LG gets a hold of this and fixes the issue as they did last time with the WiFi Interference.

    Begs the question though... does no one ever test these products? Or at least looks at them?
