      Terrific Display; Slight Downgrade From 5K iMac

      I decided to replace my aging 2014 5KiMac with a 15” MacBook Pro and this display. I went to the Apple Store nearest me and bought it before the floor employee I decided to replace my aging 2014 5KiMac with a 15” MacBook Pro and this display. I went to the Apple Store nearest me and bought it before the floor employees even knew it was in stock. My initial usage wasn’t without problems. The monitor would resist my entreaties to turn on when I woke up the MacBook Pro. I went to the local Best Buy and spent $39 for an Apple Thunderbolt 3 cable to replace the stock LG cable. The new cable solved the problem about 90% of the time, but the monitor still refuses to wake up once a week or so. I have to unplug the cable and plug it back in. The LG monitor maintenance app is laughable; if I wait until the app tells me to update the firmware, I’ll never get beyond the version that shipped with the display. The 24” display is a slight downgrade from my 5K iMac, but the desk real estate I’ve gained back is significant. The display itself is gorgeous, even if the stand is blocky. And since I’ve switched to USB-C for all my peripherals, I welcome the ports. I’ve concluded that I should spend the extra money to buy another display and run them side-by-side rather than buy a TB3 hub.

      Worth the wait

      I have been using an Apple LED Cinema Display (24") with my 2008 Mac Pro, and it's replacement, a 2018 Mac Mini. Needless to say, I was due for a new monitor. I I have been using an Apple LED Cinema Display (24") with my 2008 Mac Pro, and it's replacement, a 2018 Mac Mini. Needless to say, I was due for a new monitor. I was holding out for a new Apple monitor that I hoped would show up at WWDC 2019, but not only is the new Apple monitor outside of any rational home budget, it's much too large for my home workspace. This is about as plain as monitors get, but the panel itself is gorgeous, the setup seamless with the Mac Mini and the speakers sound surprisingly good. The first gen LG monitors had issues, they updated the 27" version to fix those if Amazon reviews are to be believed, but why pay 2X for marginally more real estate. And the 20" LG, now discontinued was too small. The Mac Mini + LG Ultrafine 24" is the iMac 24" we've never had. BTW, if I was still working (I'm retired), I would love this monitor with a MacBook on my office desk. The monitor comes with the cable needed for the Mac Mini 2018 or latest MacBook Pro. It also includes a VESA mount adapter. And a stand :).

      Not ready for production

      This monitor appears to have been released before the firmware and supporting app were ready. The Screen Manager software doesn't support screen split or monito This monitor appears to have been released before the firmware and supporting app were ready. The Screen Manager software doesn't support screen split or monitor control and it doesn't come back to life after I put it in to sleep mode - I either have to open and close the lid of my MacBook or unplug the monitor. I've tried both USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 cables for connectivity. I purchased this monitor as I thought it would 'just work' as Apple products do. It feels very third party, which I understand it is, but unless these issues are fixed in the next fortnight, i.e. my return period, I'll be sending it back. It looks beautiful, but it's disappointing. I would rather keep the monitor as aesthetically it looks nice, the screen is beautiful and it charges my MacBook Pro 15", but if it can't work as it's supposed to, the frustration kills creativity.

      Failed suddenly after 24 mths and crashes any connected Mac

      My Ultrafine 4k monitor I purchased from Apple in 2017 has suddenly started crashing my MacBook Pro. I'm unable to update firmware with LG Screen manager - even My Ultrafine 4k monitor I purchased from Apple in 2017 has suddenly started crashing my MacBook Pro. I'm unable to update firmware with LG Screen manager - even remoting in as it freezes whilst the monitor plugged in via USB-C. Tried another MBP and a mac-mini and the same happens, screen blank and computer freezes. Needless to say it's out of warranty. I don't think I have ever bought anything digital that has failed so quickly. I understand from the forums that many other customers have had the same issue & the 22MD4KA has been withdrawn from sale by Apple, but now seems to have re-appeared. It was great while it lasted, but now I have a £600 brick that's out of warranty.

      A brilliant monitor

      I've been running 2 older Dell 2408WFP 1920x1200 DVI-D monitors off my 15" MacBook Pro (4x Thunderbolt 3) using StarTech USB-C to DVI-D cables. No dongles. I've been running 2 older Dell 2408WFP 1920x1200 DVI-D monitors off my 15" MacBook Pro (4x Thunderbolt 3) using StarTech USB-C to DVI-D cables. No dongles. But one monitor died and I replaced it with the new 4K TB3 display with the intent to buy a second one late to daisy chain. So. It just works. Powers the MacBook. Bright. Stable. Great colour, and integrates perfectly into the display controls in MacOS 10.14.5 (and may do with earlier versions, but that's what I'm using). From sleep wakes half a second after the MacBook display. No Issues. And for a bonus, I can plug the remaining Dell display's USB-C to DVI cable into the TB3 out on the back of monitor and daisy chain. So that doesn't just work with TB3 kit. If you're using a dongle then you should be able to plug that dongle into the TB3 out and daisy chain. So one cable doing power and two monitors despite one monitor being a decade legacy jobbie.

      Excellent for web and graphic design

      I'm a product designer and was previously on a 28" Samsung LN monitor. I took a screen size reduction to get the 24" LG Ultrafine but I'm happy to say I actuall I'm a product designer and was previously on a 28" Samsung LN monitor. I took a screen size reduction to get the 24" LG Ultrafine but I'm happy to say I actually prefer it. I can comfortably design 1600px wide designs in Sketch at 100% size including sidebars, and the clarity of the screen is exceptional. Running off my 2016 15" MBP the screens are basically identical. I was skeptical when researching, but in reality you can't notice the difference - it's a stunning display and the luminosity is excellent. Having the single TB-3 cable powering and connecting everything is awesome. I've gone from 3x cables plugged in (power, monitor, phone charger) to a single cable with everything else plugged into the back of the monitor. It's amazing what that does for cleaning up my workspace and how that translates to productivity. To be nit picky, the bits I'd improve for next time is to make the screen 16:10 ratio, just that extra inch height would be nice when coding up websites to get a bit more above the fold. Secondly I have scaled the display to have it match my MBP 'zoom' - this doesn't really result in any distortion, just kind of an annoying thing to have to do. Overall, it's an excellent monitor and aesthetically pairs really nicely with my MBP Space Grey. I'd recommend it, even when coming from 27 or 28" monitors - you'll be surprised how much those three extra inches don't matter at all :). I will be grabbing a second one when the budget allows so I can have my MBP closed and just the displays when at home. Hope this helps someone, I don't think you'll regret grabbing one of these.
