What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Killer screen At first I was disappointed in that it was not a real plug and play, as I had to call in to get it to sync up properly with my MacBook Pro and give the desired appearance. After a short telecom with their customer service, they had it up and running and the resolution is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works beautifully I bought it, plugged it in, and it works beautifully. Powers my mac book pro using the USB C connection. Beautiful display and looks great.

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.

Connecting the monitor to my MacBook Pro via HDMI, and there's no sound via the speakers.  I can get sound via the monitor's headphone jack, however.  I've maxed out the volume using the button on the monitor and the output is set to the monitor. Help! 

Asked by: IreneK
Hello and thank you so much for your inquiry. The 27UD88-W does not have built in speakers, however, it does have the 3.5mm jack for headphones or to connect external speakers for sound. ^AC

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.

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?
