I was concerned that the 60 watt charging capability wouldn't be enough to keep my 87 watt 15" MacBook Pro going, but so far so good! Your machine will draw more or less power depending on how hard it's working. When it's fairly idle, you'll be drawing far less than 60 watts so you'll be slowly charging your machine in addition to actively powering it. I'd say my usage is pretty average - I surf, watch occasional videos, and usually have iTunes open playing music. When doing these kind of activities, the 60 watts is enough to maintain or charge my machine some. 60 watts will obviously not charge your machine as fast as the 87 wall charger, but I don't really care about that. I just like to plug the single USB-C cable into my machine and have it feed everything over the single cable and have it not drain my machine over the course of the work day. Others have reported that charging didn't work with the included USB-C cable or they had to turn it upside down to get it to work. I didn't experience either of those problems.
If you're doing something super processor-intensive like rendering 3D or video, you will be way over the 60 watts (on a 15" MBP) so your machine will slowly start to drain. If this is an all day activity for you, you'll need to use your higher watt wall charger. For most people though, the 60 watts should suffice.
The 5K display has better image quality due to its higher resolution, but I like this display because:
* It's subjectively more attractive looking
* It has USB ports on the back for legacy devices (as well as others). No need to buy a dongle.
* It's currently $240 cheaper and the difference will be greater after March once they take the 5K off sale.
* It's matte screen is easier on my eyes and better for glare
I was on the fence between getting this 4K display or the 5K one. I ultimately bought this one and am very happy due to the reasons above. The 5K is obviously very nice too, but give this one a serious look if you're in the market.
I had a chance to put the 5K monitor side by side with this 4K one. There's no denying that the 5K monitor is gorgeous. Things are about 20% sharper than the 4K as expected based on its higher resolution. On the 4K monitor, you can *almost* start to see individual pixels around text whereas on the 5K you cannot. Comparing side by side you can tell a difference. Honestly though, if you just use the 4K monitor for a while, it looks very nice too.
The 5K monitor is way brighter. It's so bright that you have to adjust it down about 20%. Whites are very true though. The 4K monitor on the other hand cannot get as bright so you basically have to run it at 100% brightness. Even at that setting, the whites still appear a tad dull in comparison.
What I don't like about the 5K - you can't adjust contrast! There are no physical buttons on the monitor and as far as I know, there's no way to adjust things on the software side. The colors are too contrasted and vibrant IMO. I know it sounds weird to complain about something being too vibrant, but after using the monitor for a few hours I tend to get eye strain. I think it's a combination of the really hot colors and also reflections from the glossy screen. Overall the 4K's matte screen is very soft and easy on the eyes. My last monitor was matte so the 4K feels better to me.
I really struggled deciding which monitor to keep, but I ultimately decided to keep the 4K. I really like the 5K's higher resolution/sharpness and color accuracy, but not being able to adjust things like contrast and the gloss screen are a deal breaker for me. My eyes just really prefer the 4K when they have to stare at the screen for 10 hours a day.
Overall I give the 4K monitor 4 stars. It's not perfect, but still very good. 5K resolution is really what you want for a 27" monitor, but for the reasons above I'm keeping the 4K for now. It kind of stinks to buy a new product and not be 100% satisfied. For me though, this is the best monitor out there until someone makes a 5K USB-C matte display. But that doesn't currently exist to my knowledge.
- 27 inch 4K screen
- Single USB-C cord to power my MBP
- Lots of extra ports
- Great design to match my new MBP 13
- $700 budget
I can tell you I found everything I wanted and plenty more! This 27 inch 4K UHD matches the LG Ultrafine version spec for spec at half the price! After unboxing this beauty I immediately was struck by how modern it looked with virtually no bezel and silver stand. Setup was a snap and as soon as i plugged it into my MBP I was blown away by how crisp and clear everything looked. I could not believe it matched the Ultrafine for about half the price. If you are considering a new external display to go with your new MBP 13 or 15 inch laptop this IS the one. Trust me you will not be disappointed.
Let's start by saying that I paid $600 for this. Prices seem to fluctuate wildly, so bear in mind that I am using that price as a reference for what to expect, not the outrageous $800 that Amazon is asking at the time of writing this.
The main problem with this monitor is its resolution. 4K on a 27" screen size is a very unfriendly resolution for Mac users. This is because Mac OS is designed to work well in the 100 dpi range or, as a "retina", in the 200 dpi range. This monitor falls right in between those values, as indeed do all the 4K 27" monitors out there. It seems that manufacturers have found it convenient to make 4K 27" panels and are trying to shove them to consumers, even though it is not what works best for consumers.
This monitor is UHD, which means that it can be used as a native 4K monitor (the "more space" option in the Mac settings) and in that case everything on the screen is so small that you cannot read it unless your face is 10 inches from the screen. Or you can use it natively as a 1080p "retina" option, that is as 4xFHD resolution - the "default for this display" in the Mac settings. That gives you lovely crisp text, but it is also way too big: you have to sit much further away from the display than most people would want to.
Most users will instead choose an in-between resolution: 2560x1440, or 1440p, because at that resolution, with the Mac OS interface, a 27" canvas looks just right. The problem is, if you set your resolution to "looks like 2560x1440" you lose all the advantage of having purchased a 4k monitor, force your graphics card to do nasty scaling, and may see some artifacts or blurry fonts. I cannot stress this enough: if you are running a 4k monitor as a 2560x1440, you are wasting your money. You should have bought a (good quality) 2560x1440 monitor instead.
Let's say it plainly: for a Mac, the "correct" resolution for a 27"-32" monitor is 2560x1440, or 4x that for 'retina', which is a 5K display: 5120x2880.
The correct resolution for a 20-24" monitor is 1980x1080, or 4x that for 'retina'. That is a 4K display.
So for the best experience on a Mac, you should skip this monitor and get a 4K monitor in the 20-24" range, or visit your bank manager and then order a 5K monitor.
This is a serious usability problem for Mac users that not many people talk about (and the industry is trying to 'hush'). I suspect many of the users of this monitor set the 'wrong' 2560x1440 resolution and then are unimpressed with the display's quality. But the display is excellent when used at its native resolution! It's just a Mac unfriendly model. Do you think it is a coincidence that now that LG released two monitors in partnership with Apple, they went for a 21.5" 4K and a 27" 5K? Those are the same sizes and resolutions as the iMac. That is what works best on a Mac.
Like many others, I decided to ignore this problem, even though I knew about it, because I wanted to see if it was all an exaggeration made up by some pedantic resolution freaks. It's not. This is the reason I will ultimately be returning this monitor and I will buy a 24" 4K monitor with USB-C...when someone makes it!
Apart from that, this seems to me a good monitor.
Yes, it is annoying that you cannot control brightness and volume via the Mac keyboard.
Yes, the USB hub at the back works only so-and-so. In my testing, sometimes it fails to power up a standard 2.5" HDD. An iPhone will charge even if "Quick Charge" is not enabled (though very slowly), but an iPad will not charge at all. If you enable "Quick Charge", the data connection over USB stops -- this is not a fault (they say that it will be the case as you enable it) but it's nonetheless quite stupid.
I have not had any problems with the USB-C cable....except once, when it flickered a few times before coming on.

Seul petit bémol (d'où les 4 étoiles au lieu de 5), la reconnaissance de l'écran en sortie de veille par le Mac est parfois très aléatoire. Ce qui semble fournir le plus de stabilité pour l'instant est le branchement en USB-C sur le Mac du premier écran, et le branchement en Display Port du second écran (dans mon cas branché sur un Belkin - Station d'accueil Thunderbolt 3 avec cble Thunderbolt 3 Actif de 1m, Débit DE 40 Gbit/s, Puissance de Recharge DE 85 W, Double Affichage 4K/5K, Sortie Audio, Gigabit Ethernet - Aluminium ), en désactivant le Display Port 1.2 (du coup l'image est affichée en 30Hz au lieu de 60Hz, mais je trouve que ce n'est pas gênant pour un usage bureautique). Mettre le dernier Firmware de l'écran est également important (le dernier au moment où j'écris mon commentaire est le 3.21 sorti le 31/07/2018, qui améliore la compatibilité avec les docks).
Si mon commentaire vous a été utile, dites-le-moi en votant, ca me permet d'améliorer mes comptes rendus ! :)
Je l'ai acheté pour deux point: Résolution 4K et connexion en USB-C avec mon Macbook Pro 2016.
Cela me permet de n'avoir plus qu'un câble sur mon ordinateur qui gère la recharge, l'affiche et les données.
Je prévois de brancher un disque de stockage au dos de l'écran avec les ports USB 3 disponible.
Attention: La recharge d'un Macbook en USB-C n'est possible que sur les modèles 12 et 13,3". Les 15" demandent plus de puissance que ce que peut délivrer l'écran.
USB c kompatibel ( bei mir war das mit ein Kaufgrund)
Die mit Abstand größte Schwäche ist der Pfeifton der in einigen anderen Rezessionen ebenfalls gelesen werden kann.
Ich habe den Monitor an LG versandt mit der Bitte diesen Fehler zu überprüfen.
Das einzigste was zurück kam war das an dem Gerät nichts Defekt sei.
Eine Enttäuschung !!
Nachdem soviele von dem selben Problem berichten und LG dieses Problem anscheinend nicht gelöst bekommt kommt dieser Monitor auch nur für die Leute in Frage die entweder nichts hören oder denen ein Pfeifton nichts ausmacht.
Leider werde ich das Display nicht behalten können, da aus dem Display selbst (nicht aus dem Netzteil) ein konstantes "Pfeifen" kommt, das in ruhiger Umgebung auf Dauer sehr nervig wird!
- Sowohl USB-C als auch HDMI (mit Satechi USB-C auf HDMI-Adapter) funktionieren am MacBook 12" einwandfrei
- Das Display wird auch als 59W Ladegerät erkannt und sollte entsprechend schnell das MacBook laden
- Die Anzeige ist sehr gut, und schon im Auslieferungszustand ohne erkennbaren Farbstich und mit guter Helligkeitsverteilung
- Die Entspiegelung verhindert Reflexionen wirkungsvoll, was sich natürlich leicht auf die Schärfe des Displays auswirkt
- 4K am MacBook 12" sind schon wirklich toll!
- Das Design ist - von vorne betrachtet - ganz gut geraten, die Materialien wirken auf den ersten Blick hochwertig
- Ansteuerung vom AppleTV funktionierte problemlos - das Display weist darauf hin, daß die Auflösung vom Apple TV (3) nicht optimal ist
- Die Verarbeitungsqualität ist nicht ganz bei 100%, speziell die Verblendung am unteren Rand des Displays steht etwas zu weit ab
- Das Display gibt einen hohen Pfeifton (bei meinem Modell bei ca. 3 kHz) von sich, unabhängig, ob das MacBook per USB-C oder per HDMI angeschlossen ist - der Ton ist auf Dauer sehr nervig!
- Die beiden USB-Anschlüsse an der Rückwand bieten nur mäßige Geschwindigkeit - und es könnten auch durchaus 3 oder 4 sein
- Die Länge des Stromkabels zwischen Netzteil und Display könnte etwas länger sein; man ist gezwungen, bei normaler Tischhöhe das Netzteil ziemlich genau unter dem Monitor zu positionieren
Alles in Allem ein Display für Menschen, denen es um ein gutes Display geht, das sich vielseitig ansteuern lässt, und das auch ganz ordentlich aussieht.
Leider nichts für Menschen wie mich, deren Ohren allergisch auf Pfeiftöne reagieren.
