Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crisp colors and easy setup I bought this as an external monitor for my MacBook Pro computer. The USB C connection is easy and the color profile makes the ADOBE Lightroom and Photoshop pictures print just like they appear on the screen. Even the speakers sound good.

The DisplayPort and USB Type-C™ ports on the LG 27" Class 4K UHD IPS LED Monitor with HDR 10 (27" Diagonal), Model # 27UK850-W are independent of one another so you can use them simultaneously. The USB Type-C™ is a single port that allows 4K video display, data transfer and laptop/mobile device charging, all at the same time over a single cable. The USB ports that are on a hub on this monitor are the 2 x USB 3.1 Gen 1 Down-Stream ports that you can plug peripheral devices such as thumb drives, printers etc., ^IV

I am having trouble setting up this monitor display with my 2018 MacBook Pro. How do I use the full resolution 3840 of this monitor without making all my apps/controls super tiny? 

Asked by: Jordansrealm
Hi Jordansrealm. Not sure how you're setting up, but after you have connected the LG 27" Class 4K UHD IPS LED Monitor with HDR 10 (27" Diagonal), Model # 27UK850-W to your 2018 MacBook Pro, you would need to choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Displays, click Display, then press the Option key while you click Scaled to see additional resolutions for the second display. Then select the appropriate scaled resolution option for the second display. If your Graphics Card supports the monitor's resolution, you should be able to select the 3840 x 2160 resolution from a list of available resolutions that are supported by your graphics card...^IFV

I have a NVIDIA GeForce GT 640 graphics card and I do not do gaming on my PC will this be good for photo editing and correct colors or must I upgrade my graphics card? I seen a new card will cost me as much as the monitor and I never do gaming so not sure

Asked by: Dvelas69
Hi Dvelas69. Regrettably, since we do not manufacture graphics cards, we cannot advise you on them or how they will perform. The LG 27" Class 4K UHD IPS LED Monitor with HDR 10 (27" Diagonal), Model # 27UK850-W. How suitable this monitor will be for photo editing will depend on whether you're a beginner or a professional and on what your needs are. There are as many photographers and graphic designers as there are different levels of expectations. A professional editor won't have the same level of expectations as a beginning photographer who tries to do things the right way. With 99% coverage of the sRGB spectrum, this monitor is a great solution for photographers, graphic designers or anyone looking for highly accurate color if you have the right if you have a graphics card and wirings able to display 4K, especially in 60 hz for video editors. The monitor has 10-bit (8bit + A-FRC) Color Depth, a 16:9 Aspect Ratio, a Pixel Pitch of 0.1554 x 01,1554, a resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) and a brightness of 350 nits (Typical) and a minimum of 280 nits. It has a PPI (pixels per inch) of 163.18. Professional or demanding amateur photographers typically look for a monitor with at least 120 PPI or more and a pitch that enables very good reading of the texts. Pixel Pitch is used to define pixel size so the smaller the pitch, the less visible the pixels. The human eye is unable to see a difference in the accuracy of details at 240 PPI on an A4 page held at 12 inches, but we watch our screens from at least twice this distance. A screen at 120 PPI would give the impression of being perfectly smooth with visible pixels from 25 inches. So with its resolution and pixel pitch and PPI, the 27UK850-W will be a great monitor...^IFV
