      Fingerprints over the display. "Shimmering" screen

      I have a previous version of this display and the updated version I received is different -- there's a more yellow tint to the panel (which is fine) but there's I have a previous version of this display and the updated version I received is different -- there's a more yellow tint to the panel (which is fine) but there's also a strange "shimmer" effect that you can see when glancing across the display. It's hard to explain but it's like the pixel density isn't uniform and there are vertical "rivers" going across the display. The old one does not have this issue. The display also arrived with clearly visible fingerprints on both sides of the display, I'm guessing that's where the worker just grabbed it by the screen to put it in the box. This should not happen with a new in box item and is a sign of lax quality standards at LG...

      It's not fully compatible

      The quality of the screen it's good but I'm having big issues with compatibility with my brand new MacBook Pro 15" 2019. The display it's connected with a thund The quality of the screen it's good but I'm having big issues with compatibility with my brand new MacBook Pro 15" 2019. The display it's connected with a thunderbolt 3 usb-c cable. When I turn on the computer the screen doesn't turn on automatically and I have to enter the password to be able to close the screen and have it mirrored to the LG. Much more annoying is that when the laptop goes in sleeping mode sometimes I have to disconnect and reconnect the display to make it work. This is particularly annoying when you have all the hard drive connected to the display. I don't recommend anyone to buy this display and the compatibility issue makes it extremely use unfriendly.

      Not sure it’s worth the money

      Setup - easy. you don’t even need to open the display settings - the Mac knows the monitor’s position, and the mouse acts appropriately. Physical aspects: Setup - easy. you don’t even need to open the display settings - the Mac knows the monitor’s position, and the mouse acts appropriately. Physical aspects: does not match iMac - black plastic with thinner bezels More important - the connection for both power and USB-c input are lose. Every time I physically adjusted the screen - either up & down or moving the entire unit, the connections became unconnected and screen went black. Luckily I don’t reposition the monitor that much. Screen quality: Sharpness, not quite as sharp as the iMac. Text is larger. I also tried the scaling setting instead of native resolution, but the results were worse. Color - this would be best described by pictures, but I can’t add any to the review The LG has a yellow cast.I switched from the native LG color profile to iMac one and then tried all the others. The one I liked the best was "image p3". Even in P3, the yellowish cast is still there, but when put next to the iPad, the colors are much closer, though still a bit warmer. Conclusion: when I first compared it to the iMac, I was ready to return it. Once I compared it to the iPad —which is where I do almost all my art — I saw it was much closer to what I saw on the iPad and to the final print product. Worth the price over other 27” monitors? Don’t know - going to a store later to check the others out.

      Display turn out some weird color after 1 year.

      To be honest I love this monitor. But after 1 year of usage, the screen started to appear some pink and purple color on every side of the screen near the bezel. To be honest I love this monitor. But after 1 year of usage, the screen started to appear some pink and purple color on every side of the screen near the bezel. I cannot accept this kind of quality for the price I have paid. Better buy similar products direct from LG with 3 years warranty.

      This latest model seems to have fixed the original model's issues

      I had two LG Ultrafine 5Ks from a year ago and you'd get ghosting issues all over the place. It "appears" those problems are no more! Beautiful quality and brig I had two LG Ultrafine 5Ks from a year ago and you'd get ghosting issues all over the place. It "appears" those problems are no more! Beautiful quality and bright displays to augment my iMac Pro. I was hoping that the 5K had the cascade Thunderbolt 3 second port to daisy chain another Thunderbolt device but nope. Anyways, I couldn't be happier so I bought two. (I couldn't wait for the Pro XDR any longer and this was a cheaper solution.)
