When will it be released, how much does it cost and does it support Thunderbolt 3?

Asked by: dcpoppy
No, it does not support Thunderbolt 3 if it did it would say. It only supports 10GBps USB-3.1 Luckily though any laptop that has Thunderbolt 3 is also backwards compatible with USB 3.1 and they both use the same USB-C connector. By the way USB-C is just a physical port and has nothing to do with the speed. Except that it runs USB 3.1 at a minimum.

Asked by: Hawie82
The LG 27" Class 4K UHD IPS LED Monitor (27" Diagonal), Model # 27UD88-W does not have built-in speakers on it.

is this 27UD88-W the same spec as the 27UD68-W? CAn they both support Chroma sub sampling of 4:4:4

Asked by: Ed C
I believe same specs, just the 88W has the adjustable screen low-high for height and up and down angling AND rotating entirely 90degrees to make it vertical. The 68 monitor does not.
