What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality monitor I bought this for work and love it. I do some graphic design and often have multiple windows open on my desktop. It is great for that. It also has great clarity.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great non-4k monitor for a great price This monitor is wonderful. Supports both HDMI and USB-C (provided a DATA-capable cable - Apple cables don't do data) Graphic designers that I purchased these monitors for said that they really love these monitors because they show the grey's exceptionally well. Other sub-$200 monitors that we've purchased in the past don't show all grey's that well, this monitor seems to. While it's not a super high end monitor with the full color gambit and such, for the price this monitor is a great deal! The reason this is getting 4 stars out of 5 is because contacting LG support was an absolute nightmare. Terrible support (unknowledgeable support tech) and terrible chat service (been on hold as number 1 in the queue for about 4 hours now ... I think I should give up)

Does this monitor have speakers? 

Asked by: KingDamian
No, but built-in speakers in monitors are usually not that good. You're better off buying separate speakers.

will the usb c port power a MacBook when plugged in?

Asked by: Mason84
CAUTION: This monitor doesn't even take in video work over USB-C with either a MacBook (Early 2015) or MacBook Pro (Mid 2017). Just bought 2 of these monitors and we can't use them with these laptops unless we connect via HDMI. Power does pass through it seems, but it's not enough power to keep the MacBook Pro's charged - meaning you still have to plug them into the wall as well.
