What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Vesa mounting not possible My mount cannot fit into the slightly narrow cavity without damaging the case of the display. Research on Amazon claimed otherwise, but it will not fit, and hence, is not usable for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! image quality is amazing, closest thing to a dock available for a MacBook Pro; single USB-C cable covers: Video, Charges notebook, and acts as hub for other peripherals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this monitor! I have 2 of these monitors (LG 27UD88-W) connected via USB Type C to my MacBook Pro (Late 2016, Touch Bar Model). Everything works perfect and I am very pleased. I struggled between saving some money and buying a monitor that did not have USB Type C Input but decided against it as this is where the future is headed and I do not have to deal with dongles or multiple cables. If you can spend the extra money these are worth every penny!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Plugged it in and it worked. Worked perfectly as soon as I got the connection scenario correct. I have an Apple MacBook Pro. Just use the new USB to New USB connection cable. That is it. The charge power for the computer goes through that cable with the display data. The other USB slot on the computer is for your peripherals.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good image, poor extra features Using it with a 2015 Macbook pro. I'm very happy with the screen itself, which is (up to now) faultless. Now the additional features are rather poor. There isn't much of them (no SD card reader, no webcam), and those present are badly executed. There are only 2 USB ports, are not accessible from the front, and most annoyingly, the USB hub is powered down each time the monitor sleeps, which means brutal disconnection of your external drives if you happen to have some. A firmware update should absolutely take care of this because it is dangerous to your data and makes the integrated hub useless (right now it's neither for mobile media --unaccessible-- nor for fixed peripherals --hard power off).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great monitor to use with new MBP! Received this as a Christmas gift a few weeks back and have really been enjoying it. It may be a pricey monitor but you get what you pay for because it’s an amazing picture. The sharpness and color accuracy is amazing in my opinion. It works great with the usb-c hub and the MacBook Pro. The only thing I wish could be different was a setting for it to not fall asleep right after a little time without signal. Other than that it’s a great monitor.

Hi, got a LG 27UD88-W and keen to get a 2nd one for a dual monitor set up with a mac book 2015 so I can simultaneously view multiple spread sheets and documents. How to set this up? The monitor is currently mirroring the mac book. 

Asked by: PoonMac
Regrettably, without knowing what connections you have on your 2015 Macbook or knowing if the Graphics card in it supports a dual monitor setup, we recommend that you contact the manufacturer to inquire if it will support connecting two monitors. The LG 27" Class 4K UHD IPS LED Monitor (27" Diagonal), Model # 27UD88-W has 2 x HDMI ports on it, 1 x DisplayPort, and a USB Type-C™ port on it. It has a Picture-by-Picture function and you can also download the OnScreen Software for Screen Split 2.0 which will enable you to customize your monitor layout, resizing and displaying multiple windows at once with 14 options including PIP...^IFV

A late 2014 Mac Mini will support 2 monitors at 2560 by 1600 pixels. Can I use 2 of these monitors at that resolution for music notation - a 2 page orchestral score in vertical orientation with a clear image?

Asked by: PoulosEsq
The LG 27" Class 4K UHD IPS LED Monitor (27" Diagonal), Model # 27UD88-W has a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz (also the recommended resolution) It also has a version 1.2 Display Port but it doesn't support DisplayPort 1.2 daisy chaining (MST).

I use this monitor with my 2017 MacBook Pro 15 inch. Every time I use it it causes the fan on my laptop to spin fast, even when there's nothing rendering in the background. I use final cut pro a lot.
