What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never a problem works perfectly I bought this monitor when it first came out. I've had it for over a year and it has worked perfectly. Never a problem. It works with all my MBP touchbar controls. It remains a very clear, reliable monitor. I highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The image quality is beautiful and the integrated sound, mic and video work quite nicely. I have mine mounted on a VESA-compatible arm to give it more height and maneuverability. One quirk/irritation is that it will occasionally drop out after sleeping (that is, the LG screen remains dark and/or the USB audio is MIA when my MacBook Pro wakes and requires that I dismount and unplug the USB-C cable to get it to reconnect; more rarely this requires a full restart). But other than that occasional frustration, I love having a large and crisp external display!
