My first impression of the LG was pretty positive.

For someone who works with video all the time or with photos, editing, it's kind of nice to have.

Colors are popping, saturation is the number one word that comes to mind.

So you have the thunderbolt 3. So you can charge the laptop over single cable which gets you extra usb-c port on the monitor.

So picture quality is A+.

UltraFine looks awesome. It is just awesome.

      Very, very disappointing

The display panel itself is excellent - fabulous image quality. But that's it. Connecting the MBP to the display causes the MBP to freeze frequently, or not respond at all. Connected keyboards (with required USB adaptors, naturally) constantly need to be unplugged and plugged in again to work, and connecting the MBP with the lid closed while trying to wake it with an attached keyboard works maybe 1 time in 10. All in all, this is far from great and another example of Apple not giving the Mac enough time or talent.

The display i The 5k resolution looks awesome when paired with my new 2016 MacBook Pro but ... The MBP takes a long time to boot when connected to this display. The display intermittently goes off then on again. It also seems to forget about the attached USB3 hub (connected to the display via Apple's own USB-c to USB3 dongle) and none of the USB devices work until I disconnect and reconnect the hub. Not sure if the problems are with the display or the MBP, or both. Not a good experience.

      £900 for a monitor that can't be used if you have wifi?

      It's being reported that if your fairly close to your router you get strong screen flickering and if you're too close and have your router on your desk like me It's being reported that if your fairly close to your router you get strong screen flickering and if you're too close and have your router on your desk like me it douesn't work at all. As apple/lg cheaped out on any kind of em shielding.

      I've been put off getting these into our agency for some time. Now that I own one, I feel we have wasted time following reviews of ex-issues.

      When it works its great

      The LG 5K is probably one of the best panels out there. The only one I can think of that is nicer is the Dell 8K, but nothing really supports that unless you're The LG 5K is probably one of the best panels out there. The only one I can think of that is nicer is the Dell 8K, but nothing really supports that unless you're willing to spend £7k on a custom computer Anyway, the panel looks great, speakers are decent, won't replace standalone speakers but better than most in built speakers I've heard on computer monitors. The webcam is also nice, 1080p, an upgrade to the 720p webcam Apple still use in the 2016 MacBook. I have also used this with a 2014 15inch MacBook and it looks ok, not great, but decent. The stand is great, smooth adjustment and solid base. However with my unit it has stopped working. I sent it to LG and they sent it back to me saying they could not source the part to repair it. I asked for a replacement unit as its only 5 months old, and they, LG who manufacture the display and print their name on it, say they cannot get one. I told them I can wait a couple of weeks for them to get one, and they said they cannot get one regardless of how long I wait. That to me sound crazy. So I am stuck with this monitor that doesn't work while I wait for LG to come to a resolution with me about what they can do. I normally love LG, their TVs are currently the best on the market, so I expected better from them. Reading reviews it seems I'm not the only one with issues. Now having said all that mine was manufactured December 2016 and those manufactured after February 2017 have been slightly redesigned to fix many issues. So overall would I recommend? Yes. I know it sounds weird from a 2 star review, but if you get one post March 2017 they are ok. If LG do replace my monitor with a working one I will push this to a 4 star review, but until then, it will stay 2 star
