      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

      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.

      Works great with MacBook 12"

      Works great with 12" MacBook with included cable.

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).

      4K Ultrafine for Graphic Design

      I had been working for a year or so on my MacBook Pro 2016 and had meant to buy the 4k screen back in 2016 when it was on offer however, I ran out of cash. 18 m I had been working for a year or so on my MacBook Pro 2016 and had meant to buy the 4k screen back in 2016 when it was on offer however, I ran out of cash. 18 months on, working solely on the 15" MacBook Pro Screen (which was fine for most things) I could finally afford a bigger screen. I wanted USB C and I wanted hassle free. I looked at everything, HP, DELL, other LG screens but the fact that this was an Apple collaboration with LG made the difference. I bought the screen plus the bluetooth keyboard and Magic Mouse 2 through Apple Business. Plugged in.. GO.. the screen is amazing, I was worried it wasn't big enough as it looks quite small in the picture but it's definitely big enough for all your Adobe CC palettes so don't worry. It unplugs/plugs back in fine, my 2 USB 2 drives work fine from the MacBook Pro. No issues. PLus for YouTube etc it's awesome, It's solid. Buy one. You won't be disappointed.

      I bought two, two failed. Now Broken again! (See August 4 review)

      I bought two of these, and with 3-4 months, both failed! They were repaired in August. Now one broke again. (Won't turn on.) This is not isolated. Apple I bought two of these, and with 3-4 months, both failed! They were repaired in August. Now one broke again. (Won't turn on.) This is not isolated. Apple really stunk it up going with these LG's. They still produce iMacs, why not keep going with the Cinema Displays?

      Hands down the best

      UltraFine 4K is hands down the best 4K monitor I've seen - And especially a unbelievable steal if you snatched on several $199 refurbished sale on third party s UltraFine 4K is hands down the best 4K monitor I've seen - And especially a unbelievable steal if you snatched on several $199 refurbished sale on third party site (Not Apple). Still come with new box and pristine condition. Only downside is no rotate, non-flexible dock and require you to go all in on USB-C. But then I ditched old MacBook Pro for using a Core M MacBook as my daily driver - That's how good the monitor is, makes enduring Core M worthwhile.
