What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautiful display, ergonomics not the best Things I love about this monitor: - Great colours and lovely display - Apple Thunderbolt connectors - USB3 Hub - Split Screen Software - Reader mode Things I wish were better: - Build quality, little bit plastic. The stand broke when I got it out of the box. Luckily, I'm not using the stand - No thunderbolt cable included - Touch Sensitive control buttons are a pain to use - Can't seem to get the speakers to output sound whilst using thunderbolt - The LG calibration device shown in the manual is impossible to source - I wish it had a monitor hood included, or at least an option. 07 September 2015
