      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.

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

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.

Charges MacBook and functions as USB-C hub allowing connection of external drive for Time Machine, iPhone/watch/iPad, etc. (w/purchase of additional dongle). Internal display speakers sound ok but aren't great. Display looks awesome (zero stuck pixels and no other visible flaws I can see).

      No comparison to Apple Thunderbolt Display

If that sounds like you, don't buy this display! By comparison with the Thunderbolt — it's tiny, doesn't have a camera and isn't at all good looking (it looks like PC gear from the 90's). You already know that the only ports are USB-C, and that's every bit as annoying as you imagine it will be —they're not only a giant pain to convert, but there's only one port that connects to your Mac and delivers power. The other ports are slow enough to noticeably impact performance, so you'll want to connect directly to your Mac... meaning more cable/converting nightmares. Worse still, the single powered cable struggles to handle everything at once if you're doing more than just browsing the web — I experienced mouse/bluetooth connections slowing to an unusable speed when the Mac was handling tasks like a video call. Basically the display drains the life out of your Mac's performance. In summary, this is nowhere near the plug-and-play quality of Apple gear.

It works beautifully with both the machines and powers them when used. I wanted to buy another display but looks like there is no usb-c hub to connect multiple monitors to a single usb-c. Anyways outstanding display content and looks amazing-Appleish!
